When Alden Millard steps before the haggard old seeress of the kingdom to learn what his destined profession will be, he hopes for a future in a less-than-deadly career. Instead, he's named to Master Phineas Elwyn Wright, the presiding Dark Lord of the Griffinwold, who is looking to train an apprentice before he retires from his life of evil.
          
        Bound to a seemingly inevitable fate, Alden must learn how to wrangle the forces of evil and help Phineas orchestrate one last nefarious hurrah against the reigning heroes of good in order to earn himself the title of Dark Lord.
          
        There's just one problem: Alden isn't evil. And he's not sure he knows how to be. But maybe, with the help of Master Phineas, the seeress's apprentice Radmila, and the resident demon of Griffinwold Tower, he just might be able to learn.

Smart with a subtle charm. Cleverly twisted. The explanations of the misconceptions point to what's to come without being overly informative and dry. Intriguing and enjoyable. Can't wait for the rest of the ride.

I loved this part. for some reason I've always had a passion for the darker pursuits and the fallen hero I'm glad I came across your work!

This is a great preface! It really helped to draw me in! If I hadn't already decided I wanted to read this all the way through due to Google Plus, this would have convinced me when looking at it in a shop or online!
