My Rating: 4 / 5 Stars
The hero, Zan-Gah seeks his lost twin in a savage prehistoric world, encountering suffering, captivity, conflict, love, and triumph. In three years, Zan-Gah passes from an uncertain boyhood to a tried and proven manhood and a position of leadership among his people.
I have to say, this was my first "prehistoric adventure" story. I was a little skeptical at first. I was very curious to see how the author went about telling a prehistoric tale.
We don't ever know exactly where Zan-Gah and his people live or even in exactly what time period they lived in. These facts, for me, are what made the story so compelling. I didn't need these facts. The imagry was amazing and the characters were so real to me.
This is a book I can see myself reading again and again. From the very first page I was draw into the story. I needed to know what happened to Zan-Gah and his people. The adventure he has is pretty amazing and I enjoyed it all.
I can see young readers, both boys and girls, really liking this story. It's different from most books out there and I think this would appeal to a lot of readers.
I have the second book in the series, Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country and I'm very much looking forward to reading it.
