This book is about a lord of another world who was falling from a cliff and when he landed, he landed on earth, although just not as himself.
Instead he has turned into a human being, a boy. When two policeman find him lying in a car park they ask him what his name is, the dark lord says his name and the policeman think he says dirk lloyd.
My favourite bits was when the dark lord thought that people were trying to torture him but actually they are doing human things.
This book is as dark as Harry Potter. 4/5.

I found this book well written but the storyline didn’t catch me. For me it was too mystical and riddled with fairy tales but it should appeal to those who like Terry Pratchet. The plot was concerned with a 12-year-old boy who thinks he’s a dark lord from a magical realm, who is transported to earth by a wizard. The book is filled with references to what he did when he was a dark lord, which I found too random, and distracted me from the main story line, however I can see this book would appeal to those who like fantasy stories.
