Description of book #2 / THE DESERTER. (Book 1 will
Also be given away to the same winner)
The humans are weak and vulnerable. Soon the beasts that share their stone-age world will kill and eat them. To save his tribe, Stopmouth must make his way to the Roof, the mysterious hi-tech world above the surface.
But the Roof has its own problems. The nano technology that controls everything from the environment to the human body is collapsing. A virus has already destroyed the Upstairs, sending millions of refugees to seek shelter below. And now a rebellion against the Commission, organized by the fanatical Religious, is about to break.
Hunted by the Commission's Elite Agents through the overcrowded, decaying city of the future, Stopmouth must succeed in a hunt of his own: to find the secret power hidden in the Roof's computerized brain, and return to his people before it is too late.
Peadar Ó Guilín has followed his extraordinary debut The Inferior with an equally original and pulse-racing sequel in which human primitivism collides with futuristic technology.
These books, although cruid & about canibals were surprisingly quite interesting. It was strange in Book 1 The Inferior, that they lived in such strange barbaric ages, but there are buildings everywhere from a previous time.
The sky (or the roof) has these strange technological things that float around them & observe the ones living the "savage" lifestyle. The ones from the roof think they are so superior as they have watched those below struggle against other beings & eat each other & sacrifice family members in poor health in some tribes to survive.
Stopmouth was always considered slow because of his problems speaking, but shows himself to be honorable, loyal, and well worth the read.
