Islands of Abarat

Abarat is a fantasy novel both written and illustrated by Clive Barker. The title refers to the land of the Abarat, which is where the majority of the story is set.

The story is told over four books:

The Abarat series is set on the Islands of the Abarat, of which each is based around a time of day (except the last island, which is based on the 25th hour). These islands are mounted in the Sea of Izabella, an ocean sometimes personified by the characters. Together, they compose what is described as "a limitless world" encompassing "chaotic diversity" called Abarat.
