Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country by Allan Richard Shickman
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is the second novel in the ZAN-GAH Series. It picks up about three years after the first story, which means our characters are a little more mature in this one. I really liked the character growth in this one. It was much darker than the first book and geared toward, what I felt, was a higher audience. The emotional baggage the characters have resulting from the struggles they went through in book one and during the next three years really drew me into this book.
If you are looking for a quick read, be sure and pick up this prehistoric adventure.

The prehistoric saga continues in Zan-Gah and the Beautiful Country, the sequel to the award winning Zan-Gah: A Prehistoric Adventure. In this story, Zan s troubled twin brother, Dael, having suffered greatly during his earlier captivity, receives a ruinous new shock when his wife suddenly dies. Disturbed and traumatized, all of his manic energies explode into acts of hostility and bloodshed. His obsession is the destruction of the wasp men, his first captors, who dwell in the Beautiful Country. When he, Zan-Gah, and a band of adventurers trek to their bountiful home, they find that all of the wasp people have died in war or of disease. The Beautiful Country is empty for the taking, and Zan s people, the Ba-Coro, decide to migrate and resettle there. But the Noi, Dael s cruelest enemies and former tormentors, make the same migration from their desert home, and the possibility develops of contention and war over this rich and lovely new land.
