A hilarious fantasy adventure in which a young woman, who is stuck in a time loop, decides the best way to defend the kingdom from the Dark Lord is to become the Dark Lord herself.

Davi has done this all before. She's tried to be the hero and take down the all-powerful Dark Lord. A hundred times she's rallied humanity and made the final charge. But the time loop always gets her in the end. Sometimes she's killed quickly. Sometimes it takes a while. But she's been defeated every time.

This time? She's done being the hero and done being stuck in this endless time loop. If the Dark Lord always wins, then maybe that's who she needs to be. It's Davi's turn to play on the winning side.

'A darkly comic delight of a novel' Anthony Ryan

'Twisty, pacey and full of reverent irreverence for fantasy. I can't get enough' Max Gladstone

'A brash swords-and-satire romp that draws you into its rollicking adventure even as it pokes fun at the whole genre. Gamers in particular will appreciate the irreverent upending of classic roleplaying tropes' James L. Sutter

Takes the old saying 'If you can't beat 'em, join 'em,' to the next level. A sarcastic, action-packed, intrigue-filled (mis)adventure. One of the funniest books I've read in a long time' Matt Dinniman

'Lord of the Rings crossed with Groundhog Day, narrated by a gender-flipped Deadpool' Mike Brooks

Awesome! This book is all kinds of fun. It's dark, irreverent, and funny as hell. I tore through this thing in a day. It's that good. All Hail Dark Lord Davi! - Sylvain Neuvel

“Incredibly Fun”

I absolutely loved this! Django Wexler never seems to disappoint. This book was a brilliant from start to finish, I adore Dark Lord Davi and her horde of minons. Brilliant fun, action packed and just little raunchy.

“If you can’t beat them, become them?”

Davi’s got attitude. But so would you if you’d done this over 230 times before and it ended with you being skewered or dissected or [insert your favourite manner of death here]. Every. Single. Time.

“Enjoyable”

I read an eARC of this book so thank you to the author, publisher and NetGalley.

This book is fun, often gruesome, and completely irreverent. It almost felt like a video game with Davi’s respawning. Davi is a... More
