Dark Lord: The Early Years

Dark LordDark Lord: The Early Years

By: Jaime Thomson

[blockquote text='”Only by reading my tale will you learn the truth behind the cataclysmic defeat that left me stranded on this accursed planet, Earth. But make no mistake, revenge will be mine… as soon as I finish my homework. Mwah, hah, ha!” Yours insincerely, Dirk Lloyd (aka the Dark Lord)’ text_color=’#8dc63f’ width=” line_height=’undefined’ background_color=” border_color=” show_quote_icon=’no’ quote_icon_color=”]

It’s hard not to like Dirk even though he is the human incarnate of a Dark Lord from the Netherworld. Or did he just bump his head really hard? He wakes up in a grocery story parking lot as a 12 year old boy thinking he is a 12 foot tall evil mastermind with hoofed feet and horns. The authorities think he’s dazed and confused and places him in a foster home with a church minister, her doctor husband and their 12 year old son Christopher. Christopher thinks he is hilarious, much to Dirk’s irritation, and introduces him to his friends who are also amused by Dirk’s insistence that he is the Dark Lord, the Master of the Legions of Dread and Sorcerer Supreme. This is Book #1 of a fun series by Jamie Thomson about how Dirk enlists the help of his new friends to get back to his beloved Dark Lands.
