The Dark Lord Clementine

The Dark Lord Clementine by Sarah Jean Horwitz

The Dark Lord's daughter finds that her father is under attack by a wicked witch, who is whittling him away. She has to cope.

This involves dealing with a sheep that starts to talk and does not want an obvious reward; a huntress who does not reveal everything; a poison-detecting rose; the three rules that Dark Lords obey and the need for them to commit Dastardly Deeds; her realizing things about her father; a poison that turns people purple; discussion of the Lady in White -- a snow figure on the mountain, and more.
