#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.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
