It finally arrived! Abarat is an amazing story by Clive Barker. I read it when I was 15 years old, and adored it. I really felt like reading it again, so went and ordered a copy of the hardback illustrated (by Barker himself) edition. Words cannot describe how excited I am to re-experience this incredible world, now accompanied by Barker’s unique artwork!
‘The Abarat: a vast archipelago where every island is a different hour of the day, from the sunlit wonders of Three in the Afternoon, where dragons roam, to the dark terrors of the island of Midnight, ruled by Christopher Carrion.’ (Excerpt taken from goodreads)
It’s an incredible dark fantasy, full of wonderful and strange creatures, some of whom are kind and helpful, others terrifying and deadly.
I am so excited.
