"With great power comes the responsibility to have great minions."

A funny story that was a lot less silly than it might have been, with a nice balance of humor, mystery, action, suspense, and character. With even a few touches of hard realism about interpersonal relationships and social advancement ("A henchman is rewarded handsomely for letting his boss take credit for his work").

Runt Higgins is a third year student at the preeminent boarding school for minions he's lived at since infancy. A werewolf who has yet to find his beastly aspect, he hopes to eventually secure a good position with a top evil overlord, along with the ogres, dryads, goblins, pixies, mermaids, zombies, vampires, humans, and other species who are his classmates. Someone seems determined to sabotage the school, though, putting everyone's future in jeopardy. Runt is hoping to figure out which of his odd peers, teachers, or other school staff might be behind the attacks before it's too late.

"Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. Give a man a minion, and the minion will fish for him."
