    9. Talon, connected by Sedlmayer. I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it. I have followed the protagonist Matica from book 1 and found a great improvement in the language. The book cover shows the majesty of the Peruvian mountains and the reader can see the condors swooping around and Matica on the back of Talon. We have conflict with Matica's father, Crayn who receives a nasty bite (or two) from an enormous spider. He is returning home with Matica and her condors find her [...]

    12. Gigi Sedlmayer asked me to review her wonderful Talon series. Previously, I have reviewed Talon, Come Fly With Me, Talon, On the Wing and Talon, Flight For Life. Talon, Connected is the 4th book of the story of Matica and the condors.If you have read the previous books (which I recommend) you know that Matica lives with her family in a remote area in Northern Peru near the Andes. Her parents, Crayn and Mira, are missionaries, who came to Peru from Australia. The Indians in their village shunned [...]

    13. Matica then said to Talon, stroking him, ‘All right. Now we fly, Talon?’Australian author Gisela (Gigi) Sedlmayer, originally from Germany until the Berlin Wall was erected, moved to Munich and studied architectural drafting – her entry into the work force – until she and her husband moved to New Zealand where her artistic gifts found response in creating hand crafted parrots.

Matica has amazingly overcome great obstacles in her way. The Talon series has been an enjoyable, set of adventures that all ages will enjoy.

    15. Too Tall said:Too Tall Gisela is one of the best writers I know, and I know many, including some famous ones. Her Talon series was intended for tweens and teens, but it exceeds the norm so far that it's a series for anyone, of any age. I'm quite old, and a professional editor, so my standards are very high. I'm not her editor, but hers is so fabulous I've recommended she keep her no matter what. You see, Gisela is unique in another way. I think it was German, she spoke before she moved to Austra [...]

    16. These books continue to pull me into the story. Set in Peru, you couldn't ask for a better setting for the Talon books. Matica, born with a disability that makes her smaller than most, feels alone and apart from the village, other than her family. She befriends two condors and then bonds with their chick, Talon. The birds are infused with such life and heart that readers will love them. They simply come to life on the page. The books deal with both happiness and sorrow, giving a good balance and [...]

She also begins to understand the idea of getting older and passing away. This is a great story of love, trust and how families and groups are connected. This would be a great addition to your bookshelf or a great gift to give anyone. It is a good book to read for any age. I gave it 5 stars but it does deserve many more. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    21. This is the second book and you can really tell the growth that has happened to Matica from the first book. There is also more information given about the land, condor's, and even the spider bite. It is very informational for younger readers and helps paint a picture you can really visualize.The idea that everything is connected and even the condor's are a part of the family just makes it feel more real.

    23. This is a great series. I’ve really enjoyed following Matica through each book on her adventures with the condors. It would be quite an amazing thing to be able to fly on their backs around the jungle, and Gigi Sedlmayer has done a wonderful job in depicting this in her stories. Matica is happy to be home after her dad was bitten by a spider in the jungle, on their return trip from Cajamarca. If it wasn’t for the Condors showing her the leaves to use to treat the bite on her father, she may [...]

    24. this was an excellent book and I would recommend this book to anyone who wants an excellent read. I look forward to reading more of this author's work.
