Windsong is the sixth book in the Talon series. Matica suffers from an illness that prevents her from growing. Her physical form is about the size of a two-year-old, but mentally she is 9. Her parents move from Australia to Peru, where this little girl faces discrimination and abuse from the Peruvian Indians. They see her as evil and refuse to have her near the other children.
Matica used to be an outcast but, by the time we get to book 5, she can fly with Talon, and so the Indians find her exciting and have accepted her. I have read all the previous books from the Talon series, so I was delighted to see where this one was going to go.
In Book 6, Matica is now 13 years old. She is more confident and accepted by others. The poachers are gone, and the environment is calmer and safer. She is hesitant to go to Australia and cure her growth and development issues. This would mean that if she is cured, she won’t be able to ride Talon, which is a big deal for her.
I believe the author has great potential in writing about similar genre stories. I recommend this book to bird lovers and anyone that enjoys a well-written story.Tweet
