She’s reckless and unafraid to kill, a drastic departure from Ballister’s more gentlemanly way of villainy. But she also has mysterious shape-shifting powers that come in handy! Together Ballister and Nimona stumble upon a dark conspiracy hiding right within the kingdom, and vow to take out the real bad guys.
