Publisher's Summary

How does a one-hit-point goblin become the Dark Lord?

By accident. Bert is a tiny goblin with big dreams. He follows adventurers, and loots the copper they leave behind when they take the real loot. One day, Bert hopes, he'll have enough copper to buy a warg, and finally promote from a one-HP critter to a Warg Rider.

Kit is a typical gamer hoping to enjoy a good story, but her friends are more interested in rules, loot and experience. Kit’s friends Crotchshot, Brakestuff, and the White Necromancer rampage their way across the land desperately seeking the Dark Lord trope, which gives the wielder the power to reshape the world.

When Bert accidentally steals the trope, Kit is forced to make a choice. Should she help her friends, or help a new Dark Lord rise to power?

The world will never be the same. Get ready for The Dark Lord Bert.

I wish I could give this 6 stars!

This was hilarious...couldn’t stop listening to this! It’s like scary movie’s makers, Mel brooks, and Douglas adams all got together and said let’s make a fantasy novel. From the bard Kanye East, the zany loot that appears throughout the story, the baron Collin and his mount Jacob, and the list goes in and on...I MUST applaud the evil dark lord the “nuppet count” made my day. I talked to everybody at work about it. The narrator is without a doubt more of a voice actor than a narrator. He lent to the story exactly what was needed. I can’t imagine reading this book in print having listened to it with such a fabulous narrator. Get it listen to it and spread the word!!! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Oh that Bert.

Here's what gets you, Bert is the most lovable character I've ever read. I love that guy. I also love Chris Fox writing style, it's so casual, it really pulls me in.

Oh Bert!!!!!

That’s the saying I hear a lot. Why? Not sure. I just don’t see it............ who am I kidding. It’s was awesome. Bert is one of the cutest creatures to date. Right up there to baby Yoda. Or gizmo. Can’t wait for the sequel they hinted on. Yes spoilers. Love the use of other stories used by similarity. I was laughing and Bert is just the cutest. SEQUEL!!!!!!!!!!!

Ps. For those that say it’s too childish and breaks the fourth wall too much. You are no fun and have no heart. I’m not 12 but in my forties and loved the story........and Bert.

great narrator and hilarious story

I liked Better a lot. it took a little bit to get used to him but he does get better as the story progresses. The voices the narrator used for each character was amazing and made me laugh hard. It was worth the money

Fantasy comedy-satire in its best form.

Lovable characters, saturated with modern references, just the right amount of ridiculousness; Yup. "Dark Lord Bert" will keep you engaged to the end. A good book paired with a stellar narration is what this is. Compare it to the other best satire in the genre, Orconomics.

I wish I hadn’t waited

I had been on the fence about this one for a long time. I had a couple people tell me not to bother it wasn’t that good but finally that dang cover art dragged me in and I got it anyway. I burned through it in no time. It was just as I hoped it would be with an innocent children’s book quality but with characters like Crotchshot and a matrix style fight scene with a muppet vampire. I would listen to an entire series of this! Narration was great. Keep them coming.

The reader is amazing
