British Fantasy Society Best Novel (nominee)
A dazzling fantasy adventure for all ages, the first of a quartet appearing at yearly intervals, richly illustrated by the author. Film rights sold to Disney for 8 million dollars on the paintings alone. Abarat: an archipelago of amazement and wonder. A land made up of twenty-five islands, each one representing one hour of the day, each one a unique place of adventure and danger (and one mysterious place out of time), all ruled over by the evil Christopher Carrion, Lord of Midnight, and his monstrous grandmother, Mater Motley. Candy Quackenbush, a 16-year old from Chickentown, Minnesota, crosses by accident from our world into Abarat, and discovers she has been there many, many times before. She has friends there and she has enemies. As Candy makes her journey between all the islands of the archipelago, she will discover a plot by Christopher Carrion to block out the Sun, Moon and stars to achieve a condition of Permanent Midnight. In order to prevent this disaster, Candy must find the courage to confront the Lord of Midnight; and in doing so come to know who she really is: a revelation which will transform her own understanding of her place in the epic events. The first book of Abarat is a spellbinding adventure for all ages, combining the heartstopping tension of a thriller with the powerful charm of the most enduring fable. And beneath all, it possesses the quicksilver imagination of one of the finest writers at work today. Richly illustrated with dozens of dazzling full-colour paintings by the author, the four books of Abarat have been rightly called Clive Barker's Narnia, his Wonderland. A visual and literary treat that will capture the imnaginations of adults and children alike.
