Tally and the Angel: Book One India by Eleanor Dixon – Review by Alexandria Richard

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute middle school age about what’s right and wrong, and someone having your back

A cute book about finding inner strength as well as having someone help you be true to yourself and good to others. Includes a mystery storyline.

While there is an Angel involved and there’s little snippets of its journey to get to today, this book is not overtly religious, which I appreciated. The setting here is mostly in India, so the novel gives facts about the country as well as the Hindi language, culture/style, and religion.

I enjoyed the fact that it seems that each character we meet has some character trait that they’re working on. For example, Tally is just a middle schooler who’s growing up and learning to be a good person, and her dad is trying do good in the world while also being there for his daughter after the passing of his wife/her mom.

I thoroughly appreciate the obvious research that went in to bringing the Indian culture and architecture to life on the page. I love ancient architecture and art and you can tell that the author did their due diligence in the background and representing it authentically for the young readers.

Content warning included in this paragraph: I would label this novel as upper middle school and recommend that parents be willing and able to have discussions with their child about what is read. There is a bit of a mystery theme to this novel as children have gone missing and I think it would be important to know how the child(ren) can handle mature themes like kidnapping and child labor.

I enjoyed reading this with my daughter. She enjoyed the strut and learning about a new country. She’s a little younger than the age group this was intended for, but we made due. It was a cute story with a little bit of everything in it.

This book was one simple word Amazing! A perfect paranormal fantasy, with danger, bravery, drama, mystery, and more. Tally is our main character, and being a teenage girl who just lost her mother, your heart just breaks for her. Until she is given her angel pendant and then everything changes. There is just so much packed into this short book, but the author did a phenomenal job pulling their readers in and then keeping them on a roller coaster ride full of drama, mystery, and a race against time until the very last page. I personally loved this book so much that I can’t wait to read the next one.

This book kept me on the edge of my seat, a real page turner, I could not put it down. A little girl named Tally started off with a very sad start, but her mother left her something special. She found courage and bravery to keep going. Tally and her dad went off to India for his work. A time when children were going missing like crazy, Tally finds herself in the middle of all the chaos to find and end this. With the strength to stand up, and with the encouraging words of her angel, some even called her an angel. This book was very good and would recommend it to anyone that loves reading, packed with page turning advents and a little girl that finds a place to call home.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tally and the Angel is the first book in the India series by Eleanor Dixon and is a book for kids 8-12 and family. Eleanor has beautifully written this paranormal fantasy tale and it will be liked by young and old. It is easy to picture the world and characters that Eleanor has woven due to her vivid writings, and you will be delightfully drawn into solving the mystery along with a brave little girl, Tally. This little gem is centred around Tally who is 13 years old and on a trip to India with a very special necklace. She soon finds herself in the midst of a mystery and sets out to help.

I look forward to the next adventure.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This was truly a heartfelt story and beautifully written. I personally loved the story the background, the characters and how the story progressed.

Reading this I found it very touching and sweet as well as a book to shine light even for those of us who are facing the darkest times of our life.

The girl in the story who is named Tally, had recently lost someone very close to her and though she knew she needed to be strong in spirit, you could tell a heavy weight was being carried in her heart. (I had a strong relation to this as I too just suffered a great loss in my life and reading about Tally I often taught to myself that is how I feel…its hard, really hard, but you have to be strong and keep going on even if you don’t know what you are going to face next because things feel so unknown.)

Through a surprise and yet beautiful inheritance of this necklace from her late mother, whom was the loss she was had recently experienced and was working though. I felt upon reading that Tally was immediately drawn to it. At that time there were reasons unknown. Further reading, I learned as well as Tally did that it contained a wonderful gift, an angel whom had the name of Jophiel.

Right away I got the sense of there’s a reason to why Tally has an angel. But what was the reasons for this? I had to continue on to learn more.

Continuing on Tally realized she had to face a great adventure and she was basically destined for this task. There was an issue of the people and children of India being in undergoing danger. And Tally knew in her heart she had to help them and not stand by and allow this. Things happen for a reason and Tally felt she was chosen for this path as well as adventure and she wasn’t going to let anything stop her from finishing her chosen role.

More reading, you could see how Strong of a character Tally was and is! She had to face dangers and uncertainty. There was powerful moments in the journey of the adventure Tally faced with Jophiel. Tally was and is a character that is very commendable and able to be a great role model for young children. Not only did she have to go thru grief, but also take on a task that was not only dangerous, but it was also a task not knowing what the true outcome would be. There was basically many tests and positive and negative occurrences that Tally and Jophiel faced. They did what they had to do in the end.

All in all, this was a beautiful and well written story. It was a impact and a great read, and I truly enjoyed this story from start to finish. I look forward very much to the next part. I will defiantly be getting a copy to read for myself.

Wonderful job to the author, who has written a very creative and well written story. I look forward to reading more of your work in the future!

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a sweet moving story perfect for young readers. It is full of love and hope but it is also action packed.

I loved the mixture of angels and gods and the war against good and evil. The fact that Tally had an angel by her side but still had to find a way to overcome her obstacles on her own is a good lesson to teach children.

The story itself is great, full of action and adventure with some heartwarming moments. I really enjoyed it.
