Nimona by Noelle Stevenson
♦ ♦ ♦ ♦ ♦
Do you want a bad-ass shapeshifter, a villain with a heart of gold, and an institution that seeks to do good for the kingdom (at any cost)? If so, then you need to head to you nearest library and check out Nimona because it has all of these elements and more!
Nimona, our shapeshifter, seeks out Blackheart, our villain, to be his sidekick. Blackheart states he has no need for a sidekick but soon learns that his plans actually work, with Nimona at his side. Things start to go downhill though once he learns that she is more willing to cause death and destruction than he will ever be. As time goes on though, the two learn to work together in order to not only accomplish Blackheart’s plans, but to learn more about each other as well.
Overall, an excellent read, and I love the characters and how they all interacted and worked with each other. I love comic books where girls are the main character, as well as the character that is the baddest and toughest one around. I also love that the characters are tough in their own ways, and they all have their own strengths.
When was a time you wish you could shapeshift? Would you want to shapeshift? If so, would you want multiple shifts? Or just one solid shift?
