The Inferior

One of the books released this week was The Inferior, the first novel by author Peadar Ó Guilín. Here's a synopsis,

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.

There's a review of The Inferior by Adam Whitehead on his blog and an interview with Peadar Ó Guilín by the BookSwede.

I can't wait to read this book myself.
