|I had Nimona parked on my to-reads for so long and I only got the chance to read it when I went to the Manila International Book Fair weeks ago. The funny thing is, when I bought the book, I only found out that the whole graphic novel was posted online before it was released! I pity my past self for not coming across this gem way before. Ugh.
Anyway! Nimona! Gosh. I lost count how many times “Nimona” was mentioned, no, shouted, in the whole book. lol Nimona is a rebellious and badass shapeshifter who doesn’t take “no” for an answer. Then she meets the ~ultimate~ villain in town, Lord Ballister Blackheart. Together they try to wreak havoc with the use of SCIENCE, and of course, you know, dragons and all that. But, there’s more to it than that. Lord Ballister isn’t your typical vengeful antagonist. Their mission was to prove that the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics isn’t as ~heroic~ and good as the townspeople think it may be.
The ending got me at the edge of my seat! I badly need the sequel! NOELLE, HEAR ME PLEASE, MY SAVIOR.
To end this, I seriously think Sir Ambrosius and Lord Ballister are gay lovers. FITE ME IF YOU DISAGREE.
