By Noelle Stevenson

Rating: 3 stars

I don’t know if it was because I was ill while I was reading it, but this book doesn’t seem to have left that much of an impression on me. Or it could be that the person who recommended it praised it to high heaven and I had too high expectations? Nimona shows up at Lord Blackheart’s secret lab one day and announces herself as his new sidekick. Cue many chapters of fun, mayhem and shapeshifting, with more heart developing in the book as we go on. We find out more about the relationship between Blackheart and his arch-nemesis Sir Goldenloin; the obsessed head of the Institute and the lengths they go to; and the relationship between Blackheart and Nimona becomes really sweet as they start to care about each other.

The art is serviceable but not really to my taste, although it does seem to suit the story quite well.
