Synopsis

Winner of the Philip K Dick Award, Strange Toys is a stunningly original and penetrating novel. Blending the real and the unreal, the fantastic and the mundane, in a story of love, power, and the occult that carries one young woman on a difficult and dangerous journey.

At the age of nine, Pet is struggling to protect her family from the horrors predicted in her older sister's book of secrets - horrors that indeed come true. At sixteen, Pet is hunting down her sister to wreak vengeance. At thirty, Pet attains strength and power enough to protect her from the present - but not from her sister's raging past.

With humour. insight, compassion and unrelenting suspense, Patrician Geary's Strange Toys takes the reader on parallel tours into the world of the supernatural, and into the life of a young woman struggling to make peace with the known and the unknown.
