Pegasus the Flame of Olympus review

Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus

Book one in the Pegasus series, by Kate O'hearen

 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.

In Pegasus the Flame of Olympus, Emily is home alone in a thunder storm, when Pegasus crash lands on her roof. with so much going on Emily seeks help from a boy named Joel. All is going well when suddenly they are attached by Nirads. To save themselves and Pegasus, Emily and Joel flee the scene with Pegasus. While on the run Emily and the gang soon find themselves face to face with two Olympians, a goddess named Diana and a thief named Palen. They are told that the only way to save Olympus and their world is to find the flame of Olympus. 

This is a truly wonderful book. I love Mythology, so when I saw this book I knew that I had to read it. I really liked the plot. I find it hard to make up a plot for mythology, especially something original.
This book also has great characters, Emily and Joel are my favourites. Another thing I like about this book is the fact that it has a heroine. This is a book for both girls and boys and for ages 8+ (I believe that you can be eighty and still be able to read these books, if you are young at heart!)

My book rating= ***** meg-a-stars
