Nimona, by Noelle Stevenson

23131088

Five stars, read in September 2015.

I didn’t know anything about Noelle Stevenson before I picked up Nimona, but I was intrigued by the lovely cover. It was outstanding, getting much darker than I expected it to, and also way more awesome. The protagonists are supervillains, the antagonists are heroes, and at times you question whether either group really deserves their designation.

I loved the way all the storylines were wrapped up (Blackheart/Goldenloin, Blitzmeyer, obviously Nimona) and the way . . . certain things . . . were strongly reminiscent of Maleficent from the Disney Sleeping Beauty. It was just fantastic, a very pleasant surprise. This will appeal to many of the same readers who like Lumberjanes (but a little more grownup) and Rat Queens (a little less grownup). I definitely recommend tracking it down.
