about

TALON, CONNECTED is the fourth book of the epic adventure series TALON. Matica lives in the small village of Pucara with her brother, mom and dad, who is recovering from his near-death experience. Her 11th birthday is coming up and the things she is about to encounter proves she is very brave. Events take a sudden turn when she is invited to see Elcano, the very old and frail father of the village elder Pajaro. Not once, but three times he summons her. She is afraid of him but he fascinates her. He calls her ‘his daughter’ Why? The amazing things he is about to tell her could be life-changing, things she had never thought about. Matica nearly jumps out of her skin at what she is told. ‘Who me?’ she questions herself. ‘Really me?’ Will Matica be able to cope with these life-changing disclosures? In the midst of all this, the poachers are back, looking for eggs and birds – and Talon. TALON, CONNECTED is far more than a kids' story. It is a story about growing up, friendship, and the challenge of moral choices and respect. Ride along during the ongoing adventures of Matica and her best friends, the condors Talon, Tamo and Tima, characters many readers already know and have learned to love.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Life lessons: we are all connected 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 in the 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 the coming adventures, where the girl’s bravery and passion for animals drives her to overcome her handicaps. Even in weakness, she is strong-willed. Summoned to Elcano’s hut, it is with mixed feelings that Matica recalls “his look, his eye, his stare,” which make her ponder about his frail condition, “Why is his body failing? His mind is so alert, so watchful and vigilant. She experiences grief, but learns to frame it within the notion of a celebration of life. The word ‘Connected’ in the title is of great importance. Matica expressed it best, with profound simplicity: “Dad said it, Mum said it, and Elcano said it just before he passed away… We are all connected, with the condors as well.” This bond, this togetherness underlies the writing of Gigi Sedimayer, allowing her characters to soar. “Talon placed himself in from of her and Matica leaned against his back, his wings already spread out… and soon they were in the air.” Five stars.
