This week I picked up a book called "Dark Lord: The Early Years."  The premise is that the enemies of an evil Dark Lord exile him to earth in the form of a 12 year old human boy.  Of course, he is furious, but as a puny human, what can he do about it?  And more importantly, how can he escape his new (sickeningly nice) foster parents and get back to running the universe?

Here's a small taste of the book:

"He looked up at the back of Miss Cloy's head as she walked in front of him, and began to make the movements and gestures required for the casting of various spells, like the Charm of Sudden Baldness, the Cantrip of Uncontrollable Flatulence, and the Hex of Hideous Hives.

Miss Cloy gave him a look over her shoulder.  'Stop that nonsense, Dirk, you look ridiculous!  And hurry up, we haven't got all day.'" (page 38).
