The Call by Peadar O’Guilin
‘The Call’ by Peadar O’Guilin
I loved Peadar O’Guilin’s ‘The Call’ – a fast paced adventure story, with plenty of fantasy, horror and Irish myth.
The story is set in an Ireland living in the shadow of the Sídhe, vengeful fairyfolk, seeking revenge on the people of Ireland for stealing their homeland from them. This revenge takes the form of the Call – adolescents are called to the world of the Sídhe, where they must survive a terrifying hunt if they are to make it home alive.
Only one in ten will survive, but the Call is even more treacherous for Nessa, a polio survivor, who has the odds of survival stacked against her.
A thrilling story, for fans of Suzanne Collins’ ‘The Hunger Games’ and Charlie Higson’s ‘The Enemy’.
I can’t wait for ‘The Invasion’, due in Spring 2018!
