This is a great series. I’ve really enjoyed following Matica through each book on her adventures with the condors. It would be quite an amazing thing to be able to fly on their backs around the jungle, and Gigi Sedlmayer has done a wonderful job in depicting this in her stories. Matica is happy to be home after her dad was bitten by a spider in the jungle, on their return trip from Cajamarca. If it wasn’t for the Condors showing her the leaves to use to treat the bite on her father, she may have lost him. Matica makes her dad promise that he won’t make any of the trips through the jungle by himself in the future, after what happened to him. Especially since there was more than one poisonous spider the area where he was bitten. If it wasn’t for Tamo, Tima and Talon, Crayn would have certainly lost his leg. Matica finds out about the leaves that saved her dads life that Tamo brought to her in the jungle, from Pajaro dad Elcano. Being 117 years old, Elcano had been around long enough to have experienced many things. Then to Matica’s horror she hears about the poachers they are back in the area looking for the condors. She hears that they may be looking to kill Talon, so Tima will lay another egg for them to steal. She’s going to need to do everything she can to protect the condors from being harmed. I think this story would appeal to all age groups. It was certainly an entertaining and enjoyable read.
