Nimona by Noelle Stevenson

Ballister Blackheart is a supervillain with vengeance in his heart.

Nimona is his shapeshifting sidekick.

Together, they hope to prove that Sir Ambrosious Goldenloin and his ilk aren't the goody-goodies that everybody thinks they are.

There are explosions involved. Also dragons. And science.

But then, things go wrong.

Which makes for more explosions, dragons and science.

And sharks.

Highly recommended for readers with a snarky, sharky sense of humor. Fun illustrations, excellent dialog, and an awesome ending. Ages 12 to adult. .

Magic, friendship, betrayal, blood and redemption. And sharks. No sex, no cussing, no nekkidness.

The events may not have happened; still, the story is true.  --R. Silvern
