Tally and the Angel: Book Two, Canada by Eleanor Dixon – Review by Alexandria Richard

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Highly recommend for a fun, adventurous read! A fun middle school novel!

4.5 stars rounded up.

This novel likely car be read by advanced readers in 5th grade or anyone in middle school. I know there were some words I needed to look up, which I enjoy. This novel does reference some of the people Tally met while in India, book 1 in the series, but Canada holds up on its own as a stand alone.

Here, Tally’s dad is so proud of her for her strength and job well done since arriving in India that he takes her on a trip to the Yukon in Canada. Talk about one extreme temperature to another!

I really enjoyed the small tidbits of real world things that are talked about in the beginning, (nose hairs freezing anyone?!) and how life differs when you’re somewhere that gets so cold. I enjoyed meeting the new supporting cast, Mar, Earl, Amka, etc. and who could forget about the sled dogs!

Of course this wouldn’t be an adventurer novel without an adventure (besides the setting of middle of nowhere, Yukon, Canada). Here, Tally must help people in a local village to figure out a riddle/mystery. We see more of Jophiel, the Angel, and his influence on Tally, as well as imparting life lessons. There is some mysticism that occurs, which as a fantasy reader I thoroughly enjoyed.

I highly recommend this novel for fun and adventure.

What a great book to share with young family members. I loved reading this with my grandson. He loved it as much as the first book. The story keep us both turning the pages to see what will happen next. We were not disappointed with this story! The characters become very real as you read the story. The places described in the book create a great picture in your mind. What a great series for all ages! We enjoyed reading this book during family time. I would suggest reading the first book before this one.

Not exactly the story I thought I was getting when reading the book synopsis, but it turned out to be a great book! The villagers and their story liking with the story of the angel was a great touch. Tally is very adventurous, saving Jak and going through everything to keep her and her father together. While reading you almost forget this story takes place in modern day, with the description of the village and how they all lived. Dog sledding through the North Yukon near old gold mines, fighting off wolves, and saving a village are great adventures for a 13-year-old travelling with her father around the world. Here’s hoping for book 3!

Book two is better then book one.
I love this story.
It is so mysterious and so fun.
Now if an Angel is scared and wary then something may be wrong.
Can Tally save the town?
The adventure with the introduction of the magical aspect of the story brought this story to a new level.
I absolutely loved the attention to the quest and the path that Tally and her Angel are on.
This again was a light and fun read perfect for children and young adults.
I highly recommend this,
I look forward to more from this author.
The geographic aspect really brings the adventure to life.
I REALLY want an angel in a locket.

The Tally and the Angel series is a middle-grade children’s fantasy series that even adults will enjoy! I was so excited to get my hands on this second book in the series and it did not disappoint me in any way!
I loved how the author wrote the first book and couldn’t wait to find out what the next adventure would be! Tally is a curious young girl and with the help of her angel, she has the strength and courage to have a lot more adventures in book 2 which is set in the Yukon in Canada!
Even though the character is a younger age I really have enjoyed this series as an adult! The adventure that is told and the detail about the location the book takes place helps even me to be right there in the story with the character! I learned so much about the Yukon that no history book would have told me in school!
I would highly recommend this book, and this series, to anyone who enjoys reading books about adventure. I would also recommend it to any parents looking for a clean fun middle-grade chapter book series they can read alongside their child! Both adult and child alike will love this series!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tally and the Angel is an enchanting children’s fantasy series, and this is the second book which is set primarily in the Yukon. It is appropriate for confident readers in KS2, and KS3. It’s also an enjoyable read for adults, and would be a fun story to read out loud! There is some violence and suspense – as the summary suggests, Tally’s dad is in danger for part of the book. So parents of more sensitive or younger children might want to read the book first and prepare discussions. But Tally is a brave heroine and there are caring characters around her who help her to face her challenges!
I loved the setting of this book. I’ve been to the Yukon, so it brought back loads of happy memories! There are dog sleds and snow and tales of the Gold Rush and lots and lots of warm layers! Tally and her dad are both up for an adventure and so get to explore some stunning scenery.
This book has plenty of mystery and intrigue, to keep readers engaged. We learn more about Jophiel the angel, and encounter more ancient magic.
This book gets five stars from me. I’d recommend it to young readers who enjoy exploring new places in books, and stories with magic and angels.

If you are looking for a great young adult or children’s book to read this is the story for you. This is the second book in this amazing series. This book started off where the first book ended. I was so excited to see where the next adventure would be and Canada was the perfect place to go. I learned a lot about the culture of Canada that I didn’t know in the beginning. My son read it with me and he can’t wait to see where Tally and her Angel goes next.

I really enjoy all the adventures Tally gets to do and kind of jealous. I think this is a great young adult book it teaches family is important no matter what. Tally gets into predicaments that she has to find her way out of. Its like she cant catch a break but she is very strong and with the help of her angel she can do anything. I cant wait for for the next one to come out.

I really enjoyed this story. The story was dynamic and full of twists and turns. A daughter and father are off travelling to ease the pain of losing their mother and wife. They go on an adventure that begins in India where her father works as a doctor to help the locals. Once his contract is done in India they are off for a vacation in the very cold Yukon. The story revolves around the bond between father and daughter and the strength it takes to be brave in the face of fear and the unknown. A guiding grace helps on this amazing journey.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tally returns in her second adventure fresh from her first and this time, she is travelling to Canada with her dad, they are going to have a holiday after all their hard work, so he has booked them onto a holiday at a retreat in the Yukon where they can learn how to husky sled across the snowy tundra. First impressions are as Tally expected and that it is cold, but she never knew that there were so many shades of white in the world and is amazed as she learns more about the husky’s and how to sled. Meanwhile, Jophiel senses something which makes him feel uneasy as they are traveling, but cannot remember why, so he looks out for Tally as much as he can, but someone at the camp is a little bit odd and it is not helpful, especially when their help turns out to be a hindrance.

One day while they are out, Tally’s dad is hurt and is taken to a village to recover, however, it is not a village like any other, it has been cursed, but not everyone wants the curse to be lifted. There are those within the village which will happily stay as they are for the gold which they have access to, but that isn’t the only challenge which Tally and Jophiel face as his unease grows with each step closer they get to the reason for the curse, but when they come face to face with dangerous creatures, both earthbound and mythical will Jophiel be able to face his fears and help Tally to defeat them, or is this where there adventures come to an end?

This is a fast paced fantasy adventure of one girl, her angel and a battle against forces which may be their undoing, with action, adventure and suspense, this is a story you will want to follow through to the end and you will not want to miss out on.

Such a great story! Following Tally and Jophiel from book 1 in India and now book 2 the next adventure is in the Yukon in Canada. I loved how the Tally and her dad become “mushers” and learn a new experience. When they trek on their own after learning the ropes of dog sledding, they seem to become lost and are in a village that is “cursed”. When Tally’s dad is hurt, she needs to find a way to get her dad to a doctor for treatment while trying to help break this curse that the village has. I love Tally’s character as she is curious but brave. Mystery, intrigue, gold hungry characters, mythical beings and just quite an adventure all wrapped into a great read! I cannot wait to book 3!!

This book was even more amazing then the first. We once again follow our main character Tally but this time we’re following her and her angel on a race against time in Canada. Once again full of drama, this one has so much more then the first book including ancient curses, gold hunters, and beautiful mystical wolves. While this story could be read as a standalone I highly recommend you read the first book in this series to get the back story as to who Tally is and how she came to possess her angel. This book like the previous one had me gripped from the beginning and I just simply could not put it down.

Tally and Jophiel are back in this wonderfully written young adult/children’s book. I absolutely loved this book and although its intended for ages eight and up I enjoyed it just as much as the first book in this series. In this story Tally and Jophiel and her dad are off on an adventure to Canada to learn dog sledding but along there travel they come across a village. But certain circumstances lead them back to the cursed village where her dad falls under the curse as well. Now Tally and Jophiel are trying to save her dad and break the curse before it’s to late. I highly recommend reading this book to find put what happens next. I look forward to sharing this book over the holidays with my neices and nephew’s. They love stories like this one. I look forward to many more books by this author.

A lovely follow-up adventure to Book 1. Tally must use her intellect and courage to survive the challenges in front of her to save the day. The remote Yukon town is tainted with a century-old curse that Tally must unravel and contend with. Lots of exciting twists and turns in this story to keep readers on their toes. Tally is a great heroine, brave but vulnerable, and I enjoyed jumping back into her world. A nice family story for adventure lovers of all ages.

Tally and the Angel is a cute and inspiring story with mystery, friendship, life lessons and some fantasy thrown in. It’s a great story that any young reader would enjoy. Tally is such a sweet girl who has just had a heartbreaking experience and now has to adjust to her new life, she shows such bravery and strength as she tries to solve the mystery in India with her angel. I enjoyed learning more about Jophiel and watching his and Tally’s friendship grow. I loved how even an ancient being like Jophiel could learn and be inspired by a young girl who only wants to do what’s right which is sometimes not always easy to do or understand.

I had highly enjoyed the first one in the series, I loved this one as much as the first. This time we find Tally and her Angel friend on another adventure. Different place for the adventure this time, in Canada. It was defiantly a different scenery compared to the first book, but the story was as compelling as the original

. I loved the adventure Tally and her Angel faced in this one. Danger and they both had to rely on their hearts they withheld as well as themselves to save the day. I love how the author strongly shows how we can achieve anything, even if it seems impossible, we need only believe in ourselves and trust ourselves. Even if the world seems against you, you can achieve anything! The story is once again beautifully written, and a must rea for children of all ages, highly recommend for sure!

I really enjoyed this book. I like how there’s a supernatural element to this book. Has a magical side mixed in with the cunningness of the gods. Trying to hide the whole event and what was really happening, tally found out some very interesting secrets to this little hidden away place. Tally had to rescue her dad and hopefully make it back ok. This short quick read was amazing. It kept me wanting to read more and I couldn’t put it down. Tally is such a strong-willed girl and really likes to learn new things and takes charge to solve problems. I really love her character, and the way this plot and story flow it really kept my attention. I really hope there is more to this stories and Tally’s adventures.

What a wonderful follow up to the first book in this young adult book series. Personally, I liked this one more than the previous one. I love how both books take you on an adventure to a different country. The first one was India, but this one is Canada. I’ve never been to either country but always wanted to go to Canada, so this was a great way to travel there without leaving my home. As with the previous book, the author does a fantastic job with her description that you do feel like you are there on the journey with the characters. And I don’t mean just any journey, but one filled with a lot of danger. I loved it. The one thing that I will recommend is that you read the books to understand the characters and how the magic was obtained.

This is the second book in the series and it continues the adventure of Tally and her angel. It is a great book for young adults. The story is full of adventure as Tally and her father travel the world. Every place they go they uncover secrets and with the help of Tally’s angel Jophiel. Now they are in for a race against time in Canada. The fantasy adventure includes ancient curses, gold hunters and mystical wolves. This book is definately a great family adventure and I do recommend you read the first book as this gives you the back story of Tally and how she came to be in possession of Jophiel.
This story kept me gripped from the beginning. Tally is a very strong and determined young girl who makes friends where ever she goes which is nice to read. As she travels to different countries she fully immerses herself and the reader into the culture.

After reading Tally and the Angel – India, I fell in love with Tally and her angel. This book did not fail either. Tally and her wonderful angel are off on another homeschool adventure full of danger and excitement, this time in Canada. The story is fresh and full of lore from days long ago. Tally makes new friends on her adventure. Her angel seems to know more about what’s going on but seems afraid to spill the beans. Tally might be up against more than she can handle but can she do it with the help of friends and her angel? You guys should read this story. Though for the younger set, this story is great for the older adults too. It’s really adventurous and heartwarming, a fun family story. Well-written and great characters, it’s one you can’t afford to pass up.

Tally and Jophiel are back at it again with a new adventure! We go the exact opposite of warm India to cold snowy Canada and its definitely a wild ride! We learn sledding with Tally and I adore the huskies. The village was a complete surprise and then for Tally to have to face the fear of losing someone else so soon after her mother’s death my heart went out to the girl. It’s another great story where we learn of more mystical beings and once again we see Tally being her strong and courageous self with the help Jophiel.

Tally is on to the next adventure and a beautiful change of scenery in Canada. It is a book for those between the age of 9 to 109 and is a family tale. This paranormal fantasy tale is beautifully written and very easy to imagine. This author creates worlds and characters from love and that is the magic ingredient that she weaves into her writing. With mythical beings, wolves, gold hunters, Angels, and an old curse, Tally, and her offsider Jopheil have their work cut out for them but this time the stakes are higher.
I wonder where the author will take us next.
