About this book
A fresh new voice in the humour genre with a compelling yet straightforward concept: this is the hugely comic tale of a Dark Lord trapped in a normal 13-year-old's body. After an epic battle, the Dark Lord has been defeated and thrust into the Pit of Uttermost Despair. At the bottom of the Pit lies a Tesco car park in an ordinary town, and the Dark Lord has become puny schoolboy, Dirk Lloyd. Somehow he must battle to recover his dignity, power and lands, but first there's his foster family, school and therapists to deal with.
