Guests

Peadar O Guilin Guest Photo Peadar Ó Guilín is an Irish author. His first novel was The Inferior, book one of The Bone World Trilogy, which was published by David Fickling in 2007 (2008 in the U.S.A.).
Peadar grew up in Donegal off the West Coast of Ireland. The Inferior it starts out like a fantasy novel but, as the book progresses, it develops characteristics generally attributed to science fiction novels. The book has been marketed as YA fiction.

Stopmouth’s tribe ekes out a day to day existence, hunting rival species for their meat or bartering the weakest of their own kind when stocks in the larder are running low. As someone with a speech impediment, Stopmouth is seen as weak and expected to ‘volunteer’ for the flesh trade sooner rather than later (especially as his brother has a nasty habit of stealing his thunder). This changes though when a strange woman falls from the sky, an event that will affect not only Stopmouth but also his entire world.
‘The Inferior’ is a book where there is always something happening and this steady chain of events hooked me until long after I’d actually finished reading. There’s no lull at all but because everything ties in neatly together it never seemed like overkill and I just wanted to keep reading. ‘Survival of the fittest’ is taken to an entirely new level and if you’re picking this book up be prepared to see people doing whatever it takes to make it. Fair play to O Guilin for not ducking away from spelling out what this involves. GRAEMES FANTASY BOOK REVIEW{/exp:exp:trunchtml} + read more
