Brilliant 5 star review by Eliza Earthman, TALON, FLIGHT FOR LIFE

Talon, Flight for Life. Kindle Edition:

Matica and her family are planning a holiday in Australia. She and her father travel to Cajamarca to organise supplies and air tickets.
Her father is seriously injured on the way home after being bitten by a spider. Not knowing what to do, Matica calls to her condors for help. The wait until they arrive is difficult.

This talented author Gisela Sedlmayer keeps surprising us – check out e.g. reviews for the other books in the TALON series. Each tale stands alone, but they are also connected to a bigger story. These books – and this one, the 498 page TALON, FLIGHT FOR LIFE – are books for all ages. They bring life lessons into the stories. The author’s writing flows easily, descriptions are well written and it is easy to visualize scenes.

The narrative is uplifting, and heart-warming, and skilled wordsmith’s voice brings through the theme of hope.

Journey with Matica in this third book in the TALON series. Be with her through adventures, laughter and tears. Enjoy the feeling of friendship, love and camaraderie she enjoys with her condors, Talon, Tamo and Tima.

TALON, FLIGHT FOR LIFE is a moving and exciting story. The experienced author takes us on a fascinating journey, through descriptive prose and exciting adventures interspersed with important life lessons.

I looking forward to reading more in this TALON series. They are excellent gifts for the whole family.

A well-deserved five stars.


About Gigi Sedlmayer

Gisela (Gigi) Sedlmayer was born on 19 May 1944 in Potsdam, a suburb of Berlin in Germany. Her family escaped to the West just before the infamous wall went up. They moved around in Germany until finally settling in Munich where Gigi studied architectural drafting and met Albert in 1965, marrying in December 1967. She worked as a civil draftsperson in various private consultancies in Munich. Since her uncle was a writer, she tried to write short animal stories herself. Nothing further came of it, but she developed a love for the written word and started to consume books. In May 1975, Gigi and her husband moved to New Zealand. Because of language challenges, she started a handicraft business. As a specialty, she made colourful parrots of which she sold thousands in a few years. In 1988, they decided to adopt and became adoptive parents of twin girls the year after. They lived in New Zealand for eighteen years and moved to Australia in September 1992. Two years later Gigi was diagnosed with cancer. After operations and radiation, she withdrew, thinking that she would probably soon be dead, like her friend who died of cancer, but her two little girls gave her the courage to keep going. After a few years, still among the living, her brain started to work again, so she thought, 'Get a grip on yourself and do something good with your life'. She remembered the time she wrote short stories and got inspired again, seeing her husband Albert writing the story of their adoption. Her English became increasingly better so she pressed on to develop her creative writing. Albert taught her how to use a computer and she wrote many short stories. She entered them in competitions and often got very good reports back, which gave her confidence to go on writing. One day the idea for the TALON series came to her and she spent the next several years bringing the story and the characters to life. She now loves writing and spends most of her time at the computer, developing new story lines. She also loves travelling, 4x4 touring, swimming, gardening, handcrafting, reading, fossicking and enjoys good adventure DVD's or going to the movies.
