Publisher Comments:

The sequel to the New York Times-bestselling Abarat!

Candy Quackenbush's adventures in the amazing world of the Abarat are getting more strange by the hour. Christopher Carrion, the Lord of Midnight, has sent his henchman to capture her. Why? she wonders. What would Carrion want with a girl from Minnesota? And why is Candy beginning to feel that the world of Abarat is familiar to her? Why can she speak words of magic she doesn't even remember learning?

There is a mystery here. And Carrion, along with his fiendish grandmother Mater Motley, suspects that whatever Candy is, she could spoil their plans to take control of the Abarat.

Now Candy's companions must race against time to save her from the clutches of Carrion, and she 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. And Candy is going to need to make some choices that will change her life forever...

Review:

"The whimsy is back in full force...but this story is quirkier, much darker, and laced with real horror....Barker lovingly and graphically describes the wonders of a magical world, and his vivid scenes...will keep readers on the edge of their seats." Booklist

Review:

"Abarat is an intriguing creation, deserving of a comparison to Oz. Barker pours out an utter phantasmagoria, ruled by the logic of dreams." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"Barker has succeeded in creating the first significant imaginary world in the 21st century." Rocky Mountain News

Review:

"This is the Wizard of Oz on LSD, with a dash of Alice in Wonderland on steroids." San Antonio Express-News

Synopsis:

Candy Quackenbush's adventures in the Abarat continue as she makes a startling realization as to who she is, and the forces of Night begin plans for war.

Synopsis:

Candy Quackenbush's adventures in the wondrous world of Abarat continue with the henchmen of the evil Christopher Carrion in close pursuit, with murder on their minds. With the aid of his fiendish grandmother, Mater Motley, her stitchling army, and the fabled Sacbrood insects, Carrion's plot is unfolding. The Army of the Night will soon conquer the islands, unless the forces of Day can ready themselves and Candy can unlock the mystery she carries inside.

Days of Magic, Nights of War is the much anticipated second book in Clive Barker's New York Times bestselling Abarat series. Once again this lavish hardcover features over one hundred full-color paintings by the author.
