Abarat is Clive Barker's dark twin to Alice in Wonderland. The heroine, Candy, is no sweet British girl who trips down a rabbit hole, but a morbid teenager from Chickentown, Minnesota who jumps into a magical sea, rather than return home. Candy is swept off to the Abarat, an archipelago where each island is a different hour of the day. Christopher Carrion, the Prince of Midnight, literally lives and breathes his own nightmares, and he remains one of the most terrifying villains I've ever read! A great read for teens, brave kids, & adults too.
