We all know and love the classic fantasy epic, where a group of heroes goes on a quest to save the world from evil. Lord of the Rings is the best known archetype of the genre.

Villains by Necessity takes that tried and true method - and flips it over.

Several centuries before the book opens, there was the final war between Good and Evil. As was always prophesied, Good triumphed. The Dark King was defeated, the evil portal sealed, and all was well.

Except.

Creation requires a balance. With too much evil, the world would be destroyed with darkness and chaos. But with too much good, the world would be destroyed by glory and light. So, the book is about the last few evil people in the world, who band together in a quest to reopen the Dark Gate to the Evil Realm, letting evil back into the world - to save it.

It's a great read, check it out.

Sounds fascinating. I'm quite sure I have never heard of a plot like that.

When I'm finished reading Jennifer Fallon's Wolfblade trilogy, I will go for it. Thanks, EQPlayer.
