The ending, as John Serpent stated himself “was anticlimactic” for such an epic book. Now, I’m not saying to give up on this series. I wanted to go to the Abarat because of this book, that’s probably extreme. Hood’s Holiday House has stood for 1, years, welcoming countless children into its embrace.


I would have handed him the entire book back. Cancel anytime and keep your audiobooks. At the edge of the Abarat, a Nephauree makes an appearance; Candy uses a piece of the Abarataraba the Abarat’s supreme book of magic to save Mater Motley’s prisoners; Christopher Carrion and Malingo prevent Mater Motley from killing Candy; and Christopher Carrion’s siblings are released from the dolls on Mater Motley’s dress.

After his film Nightbreed Cabalwhich was widely considered to be a flop, Barker returned to write and direct Lord of Illusions. The story builds on the events in the second book of the Abarat, and it becomes increasingly darker as Mater Motley achieves her goal of Absolute Midnight. I am still reeling from the emotions, the darkness, the characters, the diverse settings, the amazing writing, and the events that took place. Later he moved towards modern-day fantasy and urban fantasy with horror elements in WeaveworldThe Great and Secret Showthe world-spanning Imajica and Sacramentbringing in the deeper, richer concepts of reality, the nature of the mind and dreams, and the power of words and memories.
