Trzecia część fantastycznego cyklu Clive'a Barkera "Abarat".
“I know that many of you here have waited years for this Hour,” Mater Motley said, using that voice that, though it was barely conversational in volume, was somehow heard everywhere. “The waiting is over. Tomorrow there will be no dawn. Only midnight, absolute and eternal.”
And so begins a new chapter in the epic story of sixteen-year-old Candy Quackenbush and her journeys through the world of the Abarat, where every hour is an island in one eternal day, and nothing is as it seems.
Candy travels through the Abarat from island to island and across the sea with an unlikely band of friends: the escaped prisoner Malingo the Geshrat, the quarrelsome John Brothers, who all share the same body but never the same opinion, and the many other colorful characters they meet along the way.
The problem is that trouble finds Candy wherever she goes. And soon she discovers a secret plot, masterminded by the diabolical Mater Motley, who is obsessed with becoming Empress of the Islands. Her method is simple. She will darken the skies, putting out the suns, moons, and stars. She will bring absolute midnight.

Remember Jurassic Park, the movie? You know, the movie that had practical and digital effects mixed together? Well, I watched that movie a lot, to the point where I could start to tell which scenes were created using practical effects and which ones used digital effects. There was just something ...
Okay, well first thing first, I feel like I should explain my rating for this book which is a 4/5. I have a few complaints for this book. More than I would probably have for a book I would give 4/5, however, I finished the book in like two days. I really couldn't put it down, the book over all proba...
So after waiting seven years for this book to be released Barker's going to make us wait for more?!? I was so hoping this was a trilogy because I cannot take the suspense!!
Amazingly different, this series has kept my on my toes, and I love the world he has built. The pictures have just added do much to my enjoyment of the book.
Incredibly dark, especially considering the target age group. The illustrations are getting better for each book. The artwork drives my rating up a star, from 3 to 4. I only wish these books came out faster.
