Nimona - Noelle Stevenson
For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

This book had so much going for it, I'm surprised that I didn't like it more. It's not that I didn't like it, but I felt pretty apathetic toward it most of the time. 

For starters, being named "Nimona", I figured she was the main character, but it really focused more on Ballister Blackheart. I liked him as a character, but I was expecting to learn more about Nimona ("Yeah, that's cool, Blackheart, but what about Nimona?"). It wasn't a bad set up, I just wasn't prepared for it. This mostly focuses on Blackheart with Nimona coming in and creating complete chaos once in a while. 

Nimona is definitely a very funny character. She's so random and hilarious. However, I would have liked to actually know her backstory. There are a few theories discussed in the book, but you never really know who she is, which is a bit of a letdown. This may have been part of why I became apathetic after a while. I couldn't connect with Nimona, because I had no idea who she really was. Her character felt flat without a backstory. 

I also really didn't like the artwork. It was too simple and dull. None of the pictures really stand out. The coloration all kind of blends together. Even during the fighting scenes, I just didn't feel engaged in the art. I wasn't drawn in. I saw what happened, then moved on to the next page. It didn't make me want to linger on each frame like say, Lumberjanes. 

I did really enjoy the science fiction-fantasy mashup. On one page a knight is watching the news on a screen and on another medieval guards come in and use some weird taser-spear. It was cool the way magic works with science in the book. 

Lord Blackheart's relationship with Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin was also insanely frustrating. What could have been an adorable and tragic love story turned into this weird guessing game of Do They Like-Like Each Other or Are They Just Really Good Friends? It drove me nuts.

Overall, the story was interesting. It's a little chaotic at times, because it started out as a webcomic, but I enjoyed it for the most part. I liked the story, but the characters felt flat and underdeveloped. It was interesting, but not great.

Book Review :Nimona Noelle stevenson
Nimona - Noelle Stevenson

Jan 19-21

Nemeses! Dragons! Science! Symbolism! All these and more await in this brilliantly subversive, sharply irreverent epic from Noelle Stevenson. Featuring an exclusive epilogue not seen in the web comic, along with bonus conceptual sketches and revised pages throughout, this gorgeous full-color graphic novel is perfect for the legions of fans of the web comic and is sure to win Noelle many new ones.

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.

Review : I had heard this graphic novel was good but it was really good I loved it. I read it with the audiobook which made the experience way better .This is about Nimona who is a shapeshifter who is working with a super vilian this graphic novel was crazy cause there may be more to her powers that blackheart doesnt know and the prince is an interesting character I really enjoyed this book I recommend it
