I was lucky to get a place on the Algonquin Book Blog Tour to celebrate the paperback release of The Dark Lord Clementine by Sarah Jean Horwitz and all I can say is I thoroughly loved it from start to finish. I would like to thank Sarah Winston for allowing me to read such a wonderful book and I am so glad I was able to support the author by buying a copy on my Kindle. We first meet Clementine who is meant to be the next Dark Lord trying to figure out what is happening to her Dad and that is all I am saying about the story. I loved the assemble cast who each made this book not only comedic in some parts, scary in some parts but also made me cry and I mean cry. One of my favourite characters was Dave the talking sheep yep you heard it right a talking sheep. I loved Sarah's worlds building her comic touch the way she turned up the tempo in certain scenes and in others show how frail humanity can be even if you are meant to be a Dark Lord in waiting. So for these reasons I have no doubt in my mind to award this truly a page turner which any age group will enjoy 4 stars.
