International Writers Inspiring Change feature book review: Talon, Windsong, by award-winning author, Gigi Sedlmayer

Talon, Windsong, by Gigi Sedlmayer, the 6th book in the Talon series, is the kind of story that entertains the fantasies of young minds. It is the continuing saga of Matica and her friend, a condor whom she has befriended, and their adventures. There are plenty of encounters with danger to keep one reading along, but what is probably most interesting is the relationship of this young girl and the condors, and the respect and coexistence they develop. It reminds us that what we call “animals”, such as these beautiful birds, is only a reflection of our inability to see them as sentient creatures, who have a mind and a soul, like us, who communicate, who have emotions, and moreover, are capable of doing things which we typically, and carelessly, assign only as human traits. If there is an intended underlying message in this series, it is quite possibly that we should just drop the whole “animal” designation, and start seeing other living creatures for what they are – and by doing so, maybe they’d start seeing us as their equivalent.
