Reviewed by Jack Magnus for Readers' Favorite

Talon, Come Fly with Me: TheTalon Series, Book 1 is a preteen and young adult adventure novelwritten by Gigi Sedlmayer. Being nearly ten years old and having thebody of a two-year-old has not been without its challenges for Matica,especially since the Indians in the little village of Pucara in Peru,where she and her family live, are not at all comfortable with her andhave forbidden their children to play with her. While she was born inAustralia, she's been living there with her missionary parents and heryounger brother, Aikon, since she was four years old. Matica loves thevillage, but she wishes she could have friends like her little brotherdoes. Her interest in birds leads her to admire the Andean condors whohave decided to stay in the nearby mountains. She goes out to herspecial place to see them every day and even takes a dead lizard, whenshe or Aikon can find one, to toss up to the big male condor. Then oneday he lands in a nearby tree to meet her. It is a momentous experiencefor both Matica and the huge, intelligent bird who almost seems tounderstand what she says -- a life-changing one.

Gigi Sedlmayer's young adult coming of age novel, Talon, Come Fly withMe: The Talon Series, Book 1, is a moving and unforgettable story about a lonely girl's friendship with an Andean condor. The author does afabulous job of recreating the little village of Pucara and thesurrounding natural areas for her readers, and her characters are finely drawn and authentic. Matica is a grand main character and watching asshe summons up the courage to meet her Tamo, the adult male condor shebefriends, is a remarkable thing indeed. I could feel her fear andapprehension as she devises plans to foil the intentions of the animalsmugglers who are determined to steal the condor pair's egg, and cheered along with her as she finally sees a benefit to her special stature.Talon, Come Fly with Me: The Talon Series, Book 1 is most highlyrecommended.

I even was challenged writing the first book and had to face myself.
