Nimona is a shapeshifting monster thrilled to find work as her favorite evil mastermind's henchman. But even being an evil henchman isn't as simple as it sounds: Lord Blackheart is opposing an oppressive government, the noble Sir Goldenloin is kind of a stooge, and the two share a more complicated personal history than just hero and villain. And if the evil mastermind isn't all that evil, and the hero isn't particularly heroic, what does that mean for monsters?

This book is at once an indictment of the juvenile justice system and an exploration of faith and misuse of power. Simultaneously breathtaking and harrowing.
