Overview

The Flame of Olympus (Pegasus Series #1) by Kate O'Hearn

A young girl, a winged horse, and an Olympian war make for an adventurous start to an exciting trilogy.

When Pegasus crashes onto a Manhattan roof during a terrible storm, thirteen-year-old Emily’s life changes forever. Suddenly allied with a winged horse she’d always thought was mythical, Emily is thrust into the center of a fierce battle between the Roman gods and a terrifying race of multiarmed stone warriors called the Nirads. Emily must team up with a thief named Paelen, the goddess Diana, and a mortal boy named Joel in order to return Pegasus to Olympus and rescue the gods from a certain death.

Along the way, Emily and her companions will fight monsters, run from a government agency that is prepared to dissect Pegasus, and even fly above the Manhattan skyline—all as part of a quest to save Olympus before the Olympic flame burns out.

This is a book that will make you laugh and will also make you ball your eyes out. Very touching story if you like horses,mythical,myths,then you will love it. What makes it even better is it clashes urban living with ancient roman myths. MUST READ!!!!!!!!

OMG this is the best book i have ever read. It is really well written, it keeps you interested and entertained. I couldn't put it down for two days straight!! I also really like how they put the Olympians in the this book and it made sense. The charters are very likable and the way she described everything is very well. All in all this is a very good book!!! 1,000,000 out of 10.

I am a student in 5th grade and i love mythology. This reminds me of the percy jackson series, so if you liked that you will love this. Even the person who wrote the percy jackson series loves it. I think anyone who likes horses or mythology will like this to.

So i work at my middle schools newspaper. I thought this book was, interesting, funny, and a book of Greek mytholgy. The nirads can actually have more streangth than an army and all forces. This book is exellent and i hope you buy this book and enjoy it. :) <3, Emma

I am a 13 year old and read above my grade level, but I loved this book. Even if it was pointed to 10-12 year olds. I encourage anyone to go and pick this book up if you have a love for mythology, or even just horses in general. I'll probably be picking up the next book, even if they aren't for my reading level. It's about the story anyways, not who it is aimed for.

When I first saw this book on a shelf at Barnes &amp; Noble I just thought it would be just a good read, but I was completely wrong!!!!!!! It was a love at first read. It amazed me and I couldn't put it down!!!!!!! It took me less than 12 hours to read this and the only time I put it down was to go to the bathroom (thank god) !!!!!!!! I'm not joking!!!!!!! This book was amazing and it kept you interested. It was very well written with very likable characters. The author described everything very well and the whole story just fit right in (without being rushed or being to long) along with great action scenes. It was very touching and it was just like as if you were there!!!!!!!! It made me love ALL the characters, I didn't have one favorite they were ALL my favorite!!!! Except the CRU!!!!!! They were my favorite people to hate. :) This book just took my breath away and made me wish it would never end. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves horses, fantasy, Greek myths, or anyone who just wants the best book ever, I'm not joking. It made me laugh, cry, and kept me on my toes. Grade: A++++++++++ (lets just say a trillion pluses because I don't have enough room) 100000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 trillion (once again I don't have enough room) out of 10. :):):):) A MUST READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Also read the next books in the best series ever ( I'm still not joking) which won't disappoint and are also the BEST BOOKS EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
