I never thought I’d be hooked on these bizarre books but I picked up the first volume in this series last library haul and holy shit guys, I’m still not sure what I read but I can’t stop thinking about it. HOW IS A KITTEN SO SINISTER?!
The Familiar Volume 3: Honeysuckle & Pain
Publishing Date : June 14, 2016
Publisher : Pantheon
Released for the summer from the perils of school, Xanther and her nameless cat are settling into a comfortable routine at home. However, the rest of the Ibrahim family is growing more and more unsettled. Astair fears their stretched finances are already at a breaking point. Not even a visit from an old friend can mitigate Anwar’s feeling that he’s failing to support those he loves and that even worse things are to come. The twins, Freya and Shasti, sense something too and blame their older sister. Honeysuckles haunt the air and smell of offerings . . . Meanwhile, Cas and Bobby’s survival may depend on facing the one person they fear most. And on the other side of the world, Jingjing and Tian Li set out to find what was lost: their missing cat. With spectacular visuals and the vibrant wordplay that are his trademark, The Familiar (Volume 3) is a beautiful and singular reading experience that could come only from the imagination of Mark Z. Danielewski.
