Disclaimer: I bought this myself but all opinions are my own.
After reading Heartstopper by Alice Oseman, I really wanted to try and read some more graphic novels and when I was scrolling through IMDB looking at Daniel Craig’s profile seeing about James Bond there was Nimona! He’s playing Lord Ballister Blackheart our main character villain and now that I’ve read Nimona, I’m HELLA excited to watch this when it comes out!
I devoured Nimona in like an hour, the plot was interesting and enjoyable, the characters were fun! Nimona is a shapeshifter who has come to Lord Ballister Blackheart to be his sidekick in villainy, what starts off as a few mischief acts ends up turning into a huge battle and Blackheart discovers that Nimona’s powers are mysterious and dangerous.
The beginning of this book was quite funny with Nimona’s shapeshifting powers and then the book goes into more depth and we explore and find out more about the characters and see their developments.
This book is a standalone however I feel that it was left quite open ended, I still have questions so I’m not sure if Noelle Stevenson is done with this universe or not, if anyone does know let me know in the comments!
I do now want to go on to read her other novels, the Lumberjanes and Runaways so I’m looking forwards to reading those eventually!
