A lovely, magical fantasy
Talon, on the Wing is the second book of the Talon series, and it is also the place where an incredible thing happens: the predicament of the main character—her fate to remain small in size—turns out to be her most valuable gift, as it allows her to soar on the wings of her beloved Talon, up and away into exciting adventures.
What challenged Matica has dreamed ever since she first befriended the condors is actually happening.
And now the adventures begin.
Finally accepting Matica into their community because of an incredible event, the people from the village love seeing her with Talon and demand she tell them about her adventures with the condors.
Matica is now happy to be small because she can do what she has always dreamed of – fly. She is accepted and is loved, and because she is so small can have incredible adventures with her beloved Talon.
In the meantime, her friendship with Amos continues to grow...
In this book, she has scores of adventures and near disasters with Talon. Action packed from the beginning.
In summary, this book is thrilling and well written and is a very touching story. It has many life lessons about not judging others only on how they look but also on their character and inner strengths. It is a perfectly paced and enlightening read for children, young adult and adult readers.
