This was a really amazing story. Yes it was pretty dark most of the time but always the hint of light in the background, always waiting to spring into life. :D I love that Carrion came looking for her and found her at the end! It really was a great ending. So cute that he waited for her and protected her from his grandma :) I do hope that you continue once the third book comes out. (He's taking forever! I'm going insane waiting for that book! eherm sorry ) You are a really great author of Abarat and I hope to read more of your stories in the future :D so GOOD JOB! :D :D ;D

Wow, I was really surprised when the e-mail notification said this was to be the last chapter. And I must say, I love how you wrapped up this story quite well. :D And I love this part a lot too:
"Would people make a special trip to come and see where she had been murdered too? Maybe they'd set up a lemonade stand on her front porch and charge everyone an entrance fee."
I laughed at that part. :D (I know, I have a strange sense of humor) However when Letheo found her, I found myself screaming out loud, thinking that Carrion had come to drag her back to midnight. But the fact that he came only to visit her and not drag her off was a pleasant fact. I also liked how Candy replied to Carrion's comment about the lack of letters. And I love how you end off the story-it leaves room for further stories. :D Personally I think this is what will happen in book three too-Carrion will attempt to negotiate with the day hours (because I seriously doubt he died at the end of book two-I mean he is one of the most important characters-he can't die just yet!) The fact that Candy has Boa's soul and Carrion knows about it is one that I would like to see Barker explore. I apologize for the long review, but I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed reading your story. :D
Thanks for sharing your story with us once more,
Lady moon dragon
P.S. From what I've heard, Abarat 3 is suppose to come out in September of this year. I really hope that's true! :D

ok so how come everytime I see a notification for this story in my email I have a small heart attack? lol I love this story so much it hurts. Carrion and Thomas together are SO FREAKING ADORABLE. When you described how Candy got annoyed when he helped Tommy spread the toys all over the place I seriously laughed outloud. I was like "Omg he WOULD loltothemaxxxxx" I'm glad the two of them kind of came to an understanding, like he realized he would never be happy on the night isles and she realized that he did actually care about his family and would do everything in his power to protect them. So sweet w it makes my heart weep with joy! I can't wait for part two!
P.S. In case you didn't know, you can pre-order the 3rd Abarat book on amazon already. I did it like a month and a half ago W

I know I havent reviewed so much on your last chapters but you should know I have followed this story from the very beginning and Im very happy (and sad) that you completed it! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful story to us. Are you planning to create a new one or are you going to wait and see what the third book has in store for us?
best wishes eitherangel

I think you did really well writing this. The characters were well developed and dynamic. There were no static characters and no simply black and white sides to any issue. I also liked the way the main sympathetic character Candy wasn't perfect or all good, she was afraid, willing to run from problems initially like most people actually would, but was able to face that in a way by running to Nonce.
The only thing I missed in the story were the descriptions of the absurd and the amazing that Clive Barker slipped into his story but that is hardly a major writing problem. It was well done overall. Thank you! Please keep writing, there need to be more stories like this.

Oh my, I can't believe she able to escape! :D But I am a little surprised at the fact that Carrion let Mischief steal their baby, or at the fact that Candy left without saying good bye to Carrion. (Although her actions do make sense). I do wonder how long Candy and Tommy's new found freedom will last, because I seriously doubt Mater Motley is just going to sit there and twiddle her thumbs together. :D
Great chapter and I hope you update soon,

wow! I'm so sorry about not reviewing earlier, but I didn't have time. May I say that your story is amazing! :D Poor Candy though, her son has been taken from her :( But on the positive news, that DeWinters lady is gone! :D Of course, now Candy has to deal with Carrion's grandmother, whom I think is much worse than Miranada. But this new twist is quite interesting, and I can't wait to see what will happen if Candy's plan is successful!

awesome :D I love how Candy's taking her life into her own hands, and Mischief's appearance is exciting! Incredible writing, and I enjoy how quickly you're updating it now :)

RSURRECTION! OMG You have saved my effing life Miss Author Lady! Candy is TOTALLY back AND with an epic escape plan that Carion knows NOTHING ABOUT. I actually cried tears of joy. It honestly broke my heart watching her wither away, I feel a little more hopeful now that she's taking charge. Plus now that Mischief and his brothers are there to help the escape will be even more epic! SO EXCITED! Keep up the good work!
