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.”
