Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

All things in their time . . .

Candy Quackenbush's adventures in the Abarat are getting stranger by the hour. Why has the Lord of Midnight sent his henchman after her? Why can she suddenly speak words of magic? Why is this world familiar?

Candy and her companions must solve the mystery of her past before the forces of Night and Day clash and Absolute Midnight descends upon the islands.

A final war is about to begin. . . .

Synopsis:

Barker's "New York Times" bestseller continues the story of young Candy Quackenbush from Chickentown, U.S.A., who embarks on an epic, life-changing journey when she dives from a barren field in Minnesota into the enormous Sea of Izabella. Full color.

Synopsis:

A journey beyond imagination

is about to unfold. . . .

It begins in the most boring place in the world: Chickentown, U.S.A. There lives Candy Quackenbush, her heart bursting for some clue as to what her future might hold.

When the answer comes, it's not one she expects.

Welcome to the Abarat.
