    Article first published as Book Review:Dael And The Painted People by Allan Richard Shickman on Blogcritics.Background and nurture often have an impact on personality, which is extremely difficult to overcome.

Dael is a tortured individual, the [...]

    Review taken from my blog, The Haunting of Orchid Forsythia.Dael and the Painted People is the third book in the Zan-Gah series (See links below for my thoughts on the first two books). The one thing I've noticed with each successive Zan-Gah book is that Mr. Shickman's writing just keeps on getting better, along with his ability to just pull me right into the story and the characters struggles in such a vibrantly harsh landscape. What makes Dael and the Painted People such a great read is how th [...]

    Dael has been outcast from his people, so he asks mute Sparrow to accompany him on his new journey. Sparrow's love for Rydall isn't returned, so she agrees to go with Dael, a man who has lost his ability to love and hate. Dael decides to travel to The Painted People, a clan he knows hardly anything about and hopefully nothing about him. When they arrive, they are greeted amicably and treated like the clan. Sparrow immediately picks up on the clans communication skills - a series of clicks, and b [...]

    With most series, an author usually starts with a main character and sticks with that main characters through the rest of the series. Sometimes, an author switches it up. In most cases, this hurts a book because most people want to stick with what they're used to. After all, you get emotionally invested in one character and you want to stick it through to the very bitter end with them. However, in some special instances, a switch is good. Dael and the Painted People is a very good example of thi [...]

    4.5 StarsThe Zan Gah series is so well done and this book is a welcome addition to the series. This is the first book where Zan Gah's twin, Dael, is the lead instead of Zan Gah. I have to admit that I missed Zan Gah in this one, but I did like being able to see Dael finally grow and be happy.The second book in the series is still my favorite, because I loved meeting all of the fantastic characters. Most of my favorite characters are back in this story, but it seemed like not as much time was dev [...]

    It has been a while since I read the first two books in the series and I wasn’t sure how much I had remembered from the first two books but I had actually remembered quite a lot so I was fine reading this one.Allan Richard Shickman writes in such a way that he pens such fantastic imagery and I can really immerse myself into the world and genuinely see myself there. His descriptions of the world are really well written.As far as the story goes, I thought it was quite entertaining and intriguing [...]


  • Freda Mans-Labianca

    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 betwe [...]

    Is it true what some people say, that you can never go home again? In this third book of the Zan-Gah prehistoric young adult series, Dael has decided to leave his people, the Ba-Coro tribe. In the first book, Zan-Gah goes to find his twin brother Dael, who had been captured by the Wasp People and then sold to the Noi tribe. In the second book, the two brothers lead the Ba-Coro people to the Beautiful Country where the Wasp People had formerly lived but died out in a plague. However, haunted by h [...]

    I was thrilled when I was contacted about reviewing the third book in the Zan-Gah series. Although I received the book quite some time back, I held off reviewing it. While reviewing the many other books I had back-logged. I read this book a chapter at a time. I don't normally do this. The reason? I wanted to re-read it quickly a week or two before I posted my review. In my classroom we are currently reading our core curriculum's novel "Dar and the Spear Thrower". I wanted to be able to showcase [...]

  • Heather

    Dael and the Painted People is the third novel in the Zan Gah series and the best yet in my opinion. This one read like a novel for middle graders set in prehistoric times. I don't know how historically accurate it was but it was a great novel.Dael has had a hard life and parted ways with his people the Ba-Coro. His only companion is Sparrow, a mute girl that fell in love with a boy who couldn't love her. She doesn't have any idea why she's going with Dael, but she is. Different points of view a [...]

    DAEL AND THE PAINTED PEOPLE is the third book in the ZAN-GAH series, and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first two.The first two books are told from Zan’s point of view but this third book is all about Dael, Zan’s brother. In the beginning of the series Dael is a troubled and often times very violent character, but he slowly changes and kind of calms near the end of book two. In this story, Dael has left the Beautiful Country and his tribe the Ba-Coro along with Sparrow, a mute girl f [...]


  • Shannon McGee

    Thoroughly enjoyable and powerful writing, this third installment of the series has a different voice than the first two. Here we have the original character, Zan-Gah’s twin brother Dael. Dael is now a young man with a past that haunts him. This book takes place directly after the second book where Dael and ,a young girl, Sparrow try to find meaning to their life after outcasting themselves from their original clans.I read this quickly and really did enjoy this series but one part about the bo [...]


  • Daisy

    I liked this book better than I did the second one in the series, Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country. In that one, Dael annoyed me and was being all creepy and violent. In this one, he is still a bit creepy, but he's a more developed character and is learning to deal with his rage and with what happened to him in the past. The one thing that has bothered me in this series as a whole: there is virtually no dialogue. Everything is related, but there's no dialogue. And there's a whole lot of telling [...]


  • Jennifer

    In Shickman’s third installment of the Zan-Gah series, we follow Dael, a man intensely haunted by nightmares of a wasp woman he killed. The memories have consumed his life, leading him on a journey away from his family and Ba-Coro tribe. Sparrow, a broken-hearted mute girl, goes with Dael.Shickman once again tells a powerful story of life and love. Dael’s story was one that I wanted to know more about in the previous installments and Shickman definitely made it worth waiting for. Sparrow was [...]


  • Nina

    This third book is such a great addition to this series, it’s really wonderful. It’s not about Zan anymore, it’s the story of Dael and Sparrow. Throughout the book you see that Dael is changing from this aggressive young men into a calm, responsible men. I really enjoyed reading about his process. I also really liked Sparrow, she was very strong and smart. The other new characters were fantastic too, they really helped Dael with dealing with his past. I really like this series and every hi [...]


  • Ashley

    I don't know why, but I liked this book significantly less than its predecessors. The story was almost completely unbelievable to me and felt very much like a way to take a story and make it pretty. It's a story about prehistoric living. It's NOT pretty. I also felt too much like so many of the characters were modern personalities implanted into an ancient setting. I felt that a little bit in the previous books, but it was pretty strong here. It's not a horrible book, but it's not awesome either [...]


  • Dan

    This book is the third in the series of prehistoric novels and begins with where the previous one ends. Dael leaves his tribe to find the tribe of the Painted People. He takes along Sparrow, his companion who is mute. Together they find and live with the new tribeWith all three books, Shickman has created a believable world with real characters that can be enjoyed by not just the young but by the whole family.


  • Liz

    The Zan-Gah series is definitely one that has grown on me as I have read more about it. This book is a self discovery and coming of age story, which is where Shickman clearly excels. In terms of writing and plot, Dael and the Painted People was my favorite and showed how much Allan Richard Shickman has grown as a writerRead my full review here:consumedbybooks/2014/1


  • Naberius
