#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.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

7th Blogoversary! (#Giveaway)

Back in 2009, I decided to start this blog for book reviews. I had my other blog for photography, but didn't want to mix anything with it. So Freda's Voice was born.

I deleted the first post I ever wrote. It was just a bunch of blathering on about starting the blog. Much like the first paragraph here.


So let's get to the good stuff.
You know I can only celebrate how far Freda's Voice has come by giving back to you, the readers. Without you, this would be for me and me alone, and what would be the point in that?!

There will be one US and one Canadian winner. They can each choose a book from Amazon valued at $10 or less. 

Easy enough, right?!
