A School for Villains (Dark Lord Academy) By: Ardyth DeBruyn Reviewed by Gina Salerni
Danny had a perfectly normal and happy life, until his dad decided to send him to Dark Lord Academy to become a villain. He is soon carted off against his will and ends up at this evil school. Danny, newly named Zxygrth (Zex-ee-grith), meets some children who actually want to be villains.
Zxygrth immediately tries to find a way to get away from this horrid school. He determines escaping is impossible so he tries to get expelled. But, getting expelled from a school for villains is harder than you think. Zxygrth kills a teacher in a prank gone wrong and gets rewarded for it! So, he tries being a good person. Soon, he gets into a whole mess of trouble involving a hateful teacher, a second-in-command minion, and a sword that wants to kill him.
Special thanks to Gina for writing this review, which she gave me for my birthday and told me to hold onto it until I needed it. Since I'm knee-deep in revisions for THE CAGED GRAVES this week -- I needed it!
