Currently reading through Days of Magic, Nights of War, the second book of the Abarat series. A quick surf of the internet suggests that this series will include five volumes. The conceit of this fantasy world is that it is a self-contained archipelago of 25 islands, each representing a different hour of the day. The question I want answered is: does Abarat has seasons? This would be very important to the twilit islands where the amount of sunlight would be seaonal. Even Midnight could be affected whether it was a winter night or a summer night.

The amount of creativity bubbling though the book is stimulating. I should think of a plot hook and put a pen to some paper. I still maintain a Scribbles file.
