The good guys are flawed, the bad guys are weak, troubled, and human, and even the monsters sometimes inspire sympathy. But even while it's darker in tone and content than the last book, it's disappointingly lighter in weight and affect.

Synopsis

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 the 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. . . .
