Editorial Reviews

Review

The Talon series, and its fourth volume in particular, is an inspiration for all ages.

Talon, Connected opens with a connection to the ordeal Matica coped with inthe last volume, which moves her mother to think, "You are as strong as I thought you would be. I'm so proud of you." This sets the tone for thecoming adventures, where the girl's bravery and passion for animalsdrives her to overcome her handicaps. Even in weakness, she isstrong-willed.

Summoned to Elcano's hut, it is with mixedfeelings that Matica recalls "his look, his eye, his stare," which makeher ponder about his frail condition, "Why is his body failing? His mind is so alert, so watchful and vigilant. She experiences grief, butlearns to frame it within the notion of a celebration of life.

The word 'Connected' in the title is of great importance. Matica expressedit best, with profound simplicity: "Dad said it, Mum said it, and Elcano said it just before he passed away... We are all connected, with thecondors as well." This bond, this togetherness underlies the writing ofGigi Sedlmayer, allowing her characters to soar. "Talon placed himselfin front of her and Matica leaned against his back, his wings alreadyspread out... and soon they were in the air."

Five stars.

From the Author

I just loved writing this particular book about challenged andrejected, but now loved Matica as the poachers are back and want to kill or capture Talon.
Is it revenge? Matica believesit is. But she thinks they have no right since she raised him from theegg, so he could become the majestic condor he meant to be.
