This is book number 2 in the Confessions of a Dork Lord series.

This hilarious, illustrated middle-grade sequel, combining the humor of Diary of a Wimpy Kid with the action of The Last Kids on Earth, follows a hapless warlock-in-training as he struggles to live up to his great and terrible destiny.

Remember Wick? Son of the Dark Lord, heir to the throne of black and broken glass, and next in line to be the leader of the Grim World? Well, after a major spell gone wrong, he finds himself kicked out of his own castle and shipped off as an exchange student. As if Middle Ages School wasn't hard enough already!
Follow Wick through the pages of his journal as he comes up with a genius plan to defeat his foes, achieve greatness . . . and maybe even make a new friend in the process.
As a child and a teen, Mike Johnston was an avid reader of science fiction and fantasy. And when he wasn't reading, he was busy playing Dungeons and Dragons, which is basically still a lot of reading. He was the original Dork Lord, but was not yet ready to embrace that fate. Instead, he studied architecture and ancient history and worked as an architect in New York City and Los Angeles, but he never gave up on his dream of writing books about a young Dark Lord. He lives with his wife and daughter in Los Angeles.
