Dark Lord of Derkholm
Mass Market Paperbound - English

Wizard Derk's world has been devastated for 40 years by Mr. Chesney's Pilgrim Parties--packaged excursions for tourists from the next universe. When Derk is chosen to play the Dark Lord this year, Chesney forces Derk to turn his estate in a labyrinthine castle and manifest himself into a nine-foot shadow. Can Derk find a way to put an end to Chesney and his parties? ...Mr. Chesney operates Pilgrim Parties, a tour group that takes paying participants into an outer realm where the inhabitants play frightening and foreboding roles. The time has come to end the staged madness . . . but can it really be stopped? Master storyteller Diana Wynne Jones serves up twists and turns, introduces Querida, Derk, Blade, and Shona and a remarkable cast of wizards, soldiers, kings, dragons, and griffins, and mixes in a lively dash of humor. With all the ingredients of high fantasy, this unforgettable novel will delight fans old and new.
