Dark Lord, unsurprisingly, is a fairly standard high fantasy novel - good girls, bad wizards, a bit of prophecy and a bit of 'sucked out of the mundane world' thrown in for good measure.
The book features Rod Everlar, who is a fantasy writer in "real life". Rod created the immensely popular Falconfar setting - describing every aspect of the world in loving detail. The setting was so popular that a computer game company (the inauspiciously-named Holdoncorp) bought it. Poor Rod can now feel his creation slipping away.
That is, until it comes very, very near. Rod's having an erotic...er... meaningful dream in which a winged woman is being meaningfully stabbed to death by a 'Black Helm' and wakes up to a stickiness in his sheets. The angel has been transported through time & space to wind up bleeding to death at Rod's feet. Fortunately, Rod discovers mystical, plot-bending healing powers before someone calls the police.
These are soon accompanied by his mystical, plot-bending powers of teleportation (never once referenced again), and Rod joins his new chum Taeauna ("Tay") in Falconfar. Tay's a handy host - she's good with a sword and seems to know everyone. she also takes her clothing off with surprising regularity. Although she coyly refuses to mystically bend Rod's plot (wink, nudge), about half of her suggestions involve them cuddling erotically in streams, beds and haystacks.
Rod's a little wound up by his de-winged angel and her "shapely" body parts.Read more ›
