2014 novel about a teenage boy's troubles in the evil overlord industry. Fifteen-year-old Alec Nightshade needs to do a final practical exam to win full membership in the Norgolian Society of Evil Overlords. He ''wants'' to avenge his aunt and guardian, who's just been killed by government soldiers. True to his profession, Alec comes up with a convoluted plan to do both by getting a hold of a kraken and subverting the prophecy that's been made about him. Naturally, it doesn't go as planned.
