Blart is an ordinary farm boy. He does not care for adventure and would rather look after his grandfather's pigs. His entire life would change when a great wizard arrives and declares that Blart is the Chosen One and he must save the world. Blart simply refuses. To the boy's dismay, he is not given much of a choice as he is forced to be dragged along to his destiny. This book is written by Dominic Barker and published in 2006.
This book provides examples of:
- Big Bad: Zoltab is an evil immortal god whom the cult of evil intends to summon.
- Farm Boy: At the start of the story, Blart is shown tending to his grandfather's prized pigs. He shows absolutely no interest in the ultimate fate of the world.
- Fiery Redhead: Princess Lois of Illyria has red hair, has fire-breathing dragons as friends and is extremely bad-tempered. Blart is often on the receiving end of her fury.
- Refusal of the Call: Played straight. Even when tempted to own the largest pig farm in the world, it would mean doing someone a favour.
