Nimona is an impulsive young shapeshifter with a knack for villainy. Lord Ballister Blackheart is a villain with a vendetta. As sidekick and supervillain, Nimona and Lord Blackheart are about to wreak some serious havoc. Their mission: prove to the kingdom that Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren't the heroes everyone thinks they are.
But as small acts of mischief escalate into a vicious battle, Lord Blackheart realizes that Nimona's powers are as murky and mysterious as her past. And her unpredictable wild side might be more dangerous than he is willing to admit.
I’ve been meaning to pick this one up for awhile now and I finally got it from the library. This is an utter treat of a book! I immediately fell for Blackheart and Nimona and their amazing growing relationship. I love all of the characters, but my favorite was Nimona hands down. She’s such a complex character with hidden depths. I was blown away by the reveals of her character later in the book. I really really loved this story.
