#112: Dael and the Painted People - Allan Richard Shickman

Synopsis & Book Info:
The whole time the shaman was speaking, he shook a bony finger at his enemy--a finger that almost doubled in length by the long nail.
"Did you dare to strike my brother?" Mlaka demanded, not without an evident note of sadness.
Dael did not answer. His eyes were fixed on an empty corner of the chamber. Something back there was bothering him, and he looked more closely. His vision was blurred and he was a little dizzy. Who was that standing apart in the shadows? Dael stopped listening to the voices around him and intently focused on someone he only gradually recognized--a wrinkled, haggard old woman that nobody else could see. She had glazed eyes, and a spear in her breast. It was Hurnoa, dead and yet alive!
When Dael, guilty and tormented, came to live with the painted people, he longed for peace and restoration; but without knowing he made a powerful enemy.
A story of conflict, healing, hate, and love.

My Review for Book 1: Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure

My Review for Book 2: Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country

My Opinion:
I really enjoyed this series, so I was extremely stoked when contacted to review book 3.
It didn't let me down either!
It flowed and picked up where the last one left off. Though it followed Dael instead of his brother Zan-Gah. Dael was a trouble maker before, but he is growing up.
I really loved watching Sparrow take wings too. She is an amazing character!
I have to admit, I didn't think it had the action the first two books had, but it had more story. It tended to stay focused on the rivalry between the two shamans, but with little fighting.
The end was the best part though, and I'm not giving that away! Time to get the book and start reading. You won't be disappointed.


4/5


Recommend? Yes, but read the books in order.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…

Why Upping Your PR Skills Can Help You as a Blogger

When it comes to running a blog, there are a lot of things you need to think about to be a success. Some of them are obvious, like coming up with quality content and marketing yourself well on social media, and yet they can be forgotten by a lot of bloggers. You may have great content but if you don't have good ways of boosting your blog's image, or dealing with the people who engage with you, then you'll be talking into a void. Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
