The Kingdoms of Evil by Daniel M. Bensen

A Serial Webnovel for anyone who roots for the Bad Guy 

The Kingdoms of Evil cast a shadow of death and horror over half a continent and Freetrick Feend is next in line to be their king.

A college student in a comfortable and civilized nation not so different from yours, Freetrick suddenly finds himself kidnapped by monsters, engaged to a dominatrix, and put in charge of a country where Maniacal Laughter is a performance art and Assassination a competitive sport, with extra points awarded for creative cruelty.

As the new focus of all evil in the world, Freetrick must survive court intrigues, well-justified foreign invasion, internal rebellions, and a looming environmental catastrophe that might just kill everyone anyway. Because in a land of constant shadow, what do the monsters eat?

Aside from each other.

The Kingdoms of Evil is an epic fantasy humor novel for those of us who root for the bad guy.

Note: The Kingdoms of Evil contains some graphic violence and harsh language.

Editor’s First Impression

By Chris Poirier, editor

Oct 20, 2011: This one’s a light, easy read—well-written and presented in short segments that will keep you turning the page. The prose is confident and polished, with just a hint of light humour. Reminds me a bit of The King of Attolia, in a very indirect way (the settings and stories are nothing alike). An entertaining, creative, fantasy romp. If you don’t mind rooting for the bad guy, I think you’ll find it an engaging read.

P.S. I read over 100 installments of it tonight.

Really Good Evil

By Remember, author of Dragon Queen

Mar 14, 2015: The Kingdoms of Evil was the first web serial I remember reading, and it was good enough for me to want to read other web serials. That being said, it has its flaws as well as its glorious moments. The humor in Kingdoms of Evil is hilarious if you like epic fantasy, otherwise it may fall flat. But the greatest obstacle to the readers enjoyment is the prologue, which has negligible relevance to the story. I would recommend just skipping it. Onto the main parts of fiction.

No title

Oct 28, 2011: Well, I just read the whole book again on my Kindle, and liked it even more the second thime around. (it costs like one dollar, or 2 dollars as an e-book, I think) I love the characters – I especially like how vivid they (my favourite has to be Mr. Scree). I love the world and how creative and realistic it is. And I love the story, which kept me awake a few nights.
