Summer Book Reviews
Dark Lord, written by Ed Greenwood, takes place in a fantasy world in the present day.

A writer is absorbed into his own book and is forced to try and save his world from a gaming corporation that has corrupted it.

The story of Dark Lord is set in a place called Falconfar. As Rod is guided by Taeauna across this world, he is constantly thrown into battle.

He is caught in the siege of two Lords back to back. The Dooms hunt him and give him no rest from the battle.

All through the book, he gets stronger and becomes a fiercer fighter.

Although he is controlled by a Doom throughout the story, he wins his mind back and the new story begins.

Dark Lord, an interesting book combining fantasy with reality, takes an everyday person into a world Greenwood created.

Packed with action, there is never a dull moment. Considering the jumping around gets confusing, I give the book four out of five stars.

If someone is a fantasy freak and loves action books, Dark Lord should be added to his or her reading list.
