This book has shot up my favourites list. It’s the best thing I have ever read. If you think Loki isn’t evil, he’s just misunderstood then this book is for you! In this world, good versus evil but evil is good and good is evil. Nimona is plucky sidekick with a knack for being naughty so she introduces herself to Lord Ballister Blackheart. And by introduces I mean, starts working for him and encourages his vendetta against Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin.
Nimona earns the adjective plucky. She brings out the best in Lord Blackheart and turns him into somewhat of a hero because the enemy is The Man. That’s right! Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin and his buddies at the Institution of Law Enforcement and Heroics aren’t the heroes everyone thinks they are. This book is dark, full of danger and laughter. I adored Nimona, she could not be tamed and took no shit. She was also unstable and angry. I related to her a lot. The characters save the day, and each other. It’s not as cheesey as I just made it sound because it’s also fucking funny.
