Thirteen-year-old schoolboy, Dirk Lloyd, has a dark secret. Dirk, according to his own account, is the earthly incarnation of a Dark Lord, supreme ruler of the Darklands and leader of great armies of orcs and warriors, intent on destruction and bloody devastation. Following a colossal final battle between the forces of good and evil, the Dark Lord was defeated and hurled by his arch-foe?s spells into the Pit of Uttermost Despair. At the bottom of the Pit lies... a supermarket car park in the municipal town of Whiteshields, somewhere in modern day England. And when he is found, and tries to explain that he is the Dark Lord, people think he means Dirk Lloyd. And so begins Dirk?s battle to recover his dignity, his power, and his lands.

Image if Sauron from Lord of the Rings somehow ended up in our world in the body of a 13-year-old boy. That's sort of what happens to The Dark Lord, aka Dirk Lloyd, who is frustrated by his inability to achieve World Domination because he has to (shudder) go to school. Very funny!
