‘Talon: Come fly with me’ by Gigi Sedlmayer

Author Gigi Sedlmayer started writing after she got diagnosed with cancer and surviving it.  First only short stories, but getting gut reports, she started to write the Talon series.  And still write on them with five (5) published books. Infact from her life experiences, the idea for Talon was created.

‘Talon: Come fly with me’ is the first book of a series.  It is a story of hope, determination and love.  If you like wildlife stories or tales about South America, this children’s adventure novel might just be for you.

Reading her book ‘Talon: Come fly with me’ made me think twice about our lives surrounding.  It also teaches us a life-lesson.  This book’s plot shows readers what they can achieve if they put their minds not to the negativity, but to the positivity.

The book story is about a nine-year-old Matica who lives in a remote village on a dry plateau in the Andes of Peru. She moved to Peru when she was five with Australian missionary and schoolteacher parents. Because Matica is trapped in the body of a two-year-old, her growth handicap has caused her to be rejected by the local people and they would not accept her into their community or allow her to play with the children.

With patience and a sense of adventure Matica befriends a pair of condors. A strong bond and love develop between them.  Matica rescues the egg the condors, Tamo and Tima, are trying to protect from poachers and nurtures it to hatching. The egg hatches on her 10th birthday and she names the new fledging Talon.  Many adventures unfold, including her finally being accepted into the local community. And something totally unexpected…!

This is the beginning of many incredible adventures with Talon and Matica.  Living in the remote village on a dry plateau in the Andean mountains, Matica, rejected by the locals, while handicapped, befriends a pair of condors, with patience and a sense of adventure.
