How to Become a Darklord...

My review

Orbit Books

5 Stars

As soon as I saw this one appeared, I ordered a pre-order copy and devoured it on release week. I love to read parody/humor epic fantasy around June or July. And I am a huge fan of Bloody Rose and The Dragon Lords... kind of fantasy.

In this one, she decides to stop dying for the human race and become the Dark Lord. Yes, she needs minions, and she will gather an army while making as she goes, trying not to die and start all over.

Humorous and fun. Makes a great companion as a beach read or audiobook walking companion. I just have too much fun with these they make my bad days better.

Lots of fantasy, hilarious, nerdy, and D&D references, fun to recognize them.

The audio was super fun. It's not easy to teach Orcs to follow orders.

From the publisher

Groundhog Day meets Deadpool in Django Wexler’s raunchy, hilarious, blood-splattered fantasy tale about a young woman who, tired of defending humanity from the Dark Lord, decides to become the Dark Lord herself.

"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, author of Dungeon Crawler Carl

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 humorous western isekai featuring the reincarnation of an antihero female lead.
