The Inferior

David Fickling Books, 2007

There is but one law: Eat or be eaten! Stopmouth and his family know of no other life than the daily battle to survive. To live they must hunt rival species, or negotiate flesh-trade with those who crave meat of the freshest human kind. It is a savage, desperate existence. And for Stopmouth, considered slow-witted hunt-fodder by his tribe, the future looks especially bleak. But then, on the day he is callously betrayed by his brother, a strange and beautiful woman falls from the sky. It is a moment that will change his destiny, and that of all humanity, forever. With echoes of Tarzan, Conan and the Truman Show, Peadar Ó Guilín's début is the first book in The Bone World Trilogy and will leave you hungry for more. It is an action and ideas packed blockbuster for readers in their mid-teens and older.
