Lord Ballister Blackheart does not need an assistant. As a villain, Blackheart is perfectly content with his role as Sir Ambrosius Goldenloin's nemesis, even if he is constantly losing to the blond hero. Nimona is determined, however, and has some ideas on how Blackheart can finally gain the upper hand. Nimona is the spunky, utterly unpredictable character who breaks all the rules. The usual tropes of heroes and villains are subverted in this intelligent, touching, and hilarious story.

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.
