5 stars!

Absolutely loved this book! Reading the synopsis and seeing the cover I wasn’t too sure if it was going to be my style, but from the first chapter I was immediately drawn into this story. I was sad to see little Tally lose her mom at a young age, but she is a strong girl and goes off on the start of an adventure with her dad. Their first stop is India, everything, every place, every person was described so nicely, the picture in my head was so vivid. I was happy to see Tally befriend Balvan, and excited to see where their friendship would go in terms of adventures together. The magic of the pendant Tally’s mom passed down to her along with the Angel Jophiel that inhabits the necklace is such a fun addition to the story and watching their relationship grow and discovering the powers Jophiel holds and how they can help Tally is so cool. I would really recommend this to any child or young adult to read, or anyone really, it is a very fun and interesting to read. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

Tally, a brave, strong and intelligent 13 year old, is devastated at the death of her mother. But when her father gives her a gift left behind for her, she discovers she’s received so much more than a pendant. Inside the pendant lives an angel! Tally sets off around the world with her father, angel in tow. But when she uncovers a kidnapping plot to take over India, she steps out of her comfort zone to save the children.

A great read, however, I do think some of the themes would be a little deep for children on the younger end of the target age range(8-12). I think some of the angel/demon/god talk might be confusing for the younger reader. I am looking forward to reading the 2nd installment. Tally is a loveable main character. 4/5 stars

4 out of 5 stars
Book One in this series was fabulous. This was adorable. Little Tally finds herself befriending an Angel in the most unusual way. This should be amazing, right? But will this angel keep Tally from finding trouble, repeatedly? The short answer is No. Tally and her Angel will find themselves in a race to save themselves and hundreds of kidnapped children from a fate worse than chores.

This is a super sweet book. Targeted for kids ages 8-12, this is a fantastic fantasy book for the early reader. Dixon has masterfully created a world that the young mind can take and build into their own. A very fun 4 of 5 stars.

This is a great story. Tally, a 13-year-old from England accompanies her father to travel the world after the death of her mother. Wearing the pendant her mother always wore, she discovers it houses an ancient angel who helps guide the wearer toward intelligence and reasoned judgement. It’s a good thing too, because Tally is a brave girl who can’t sit idly by when she learns that children are being stolen in the city she is staying in. She’ll need every bit of that smarts and reason to tackle some serious bad guys and and have the courage to seek justice for them.

This is a fun book with lots to keep the reader entertained. Anyone who’s been an underestimated kid will be rooting for Tally and cheering for her success. That’s not to say she isn’t scared – of course she is! But she chooses to act anyways, which is the mark of a true hero.

My school life was spent in a girls’ boarding-school specialising in classical ballet and on leaving I danced professionally, touring Europe, for 4 years. After that I ran my own ballet school in Athens, Greece and simultaneously volunteered as a veterinary nurse, as my love of animals is the driving force in my life. I returned to England with my horse and my cat, and now live on a smallholding in Shropshire with various farm animals and a constant stream of pets.

 I started writing while in Greece and completed a Creative Writing Course with the Writers’ Bureau. The same year, I won an annual competition in the Writing Magazine for an adult Fairy Story.

On my return to England I wrote two children’s books, but my new life, caring for Highland Cattle, sheep, hens and pets, coupled with extensive global travel, meant that writing for publication took a back seat. I continued my love of writing with a daily journal and amusing travel blogs of each trip.

I am now writing full time and TALLY AND THE ANGEL is the first of a planned series. Their next adventure takes place in Canada, in North Yukon and the third in Japan. I intend them to have adventures in Greece, Egypt, Peru, Africa – anywhere I have been, really. 

My first published novel, THE GRACEFUL GHOST, draws on my own experiences in ballet-boarding-school and my early teenage life and is a story that has lived with me for many years. It was shortlisted for the UK Selfies Award 2021.
