In “The Deserter” by Peadar O Guilin, Stopmouth must desert his tribe in order to escape to the upstairs world, the Roof, and find his wife, Indrani. Only she can save the tribe… along with the entire human race. But finding Indrani will be much more difficult than he ever could’ve presumed. For one: Stopmouth is a cannibal, and the whole world is terrified of him. And secondly, if he does find her, the Commission will stop at nothing to capture Indrani because only she knows the “secret.” There is just one tiny problem; Indrani has absolutely no idea what the “secret” is, but she knows it has something to do with the Crisis. So Indrani has a choice. Run from the Commission forever, or search back into her memories and try to discover what the Commission wants to know so badly.
After the first chapter of “The Deserter,” I was almost ready to give-up because I didn’t have a clue what was going on. Near the end of the book, still confused, I looked up “The Deserter” online and found that “The Deserter” is the second book in a series called “The Bone World Trilogy.” The first book is “The Inferior” and it is vital that you read it before this book. I am still a bit confused even after reading the entire story, “The Deserter.” But all in all, “The Deserter” is a great science fiction novel and I’d recommend it to anyone who loved “The Hunger Games” or any other books that involve the future and tons of action. Because of the many gruesome parts in this story, I would recommend it to teenagers 14 and older. Also, this novel is very lengthy, but once you get through it, you’ll be glad you read it. Just be sure to read “The Inferior” by Peadar O Guilin first, so it will fill in those missing wholes that are still in my brain.
