SummaryAdd a Summary
A winged and majestic white stallion. A sly thief on the run who can break his bones. An angry Jupiter. A war raging in Olympus. Kate O’ Hearn puts a twist on classic Roman mythology in Pegasus - The Flame of Olympus. When a wounded winged stallion from the myths named Pegasus crashes onto her balcony in Manhattan, Emily Jacobs must take the help of Joel, a classmate, to help heal Pegasus. Emily soon finds herself in the middle of a battle against the Nirads, fearsome creatures, and must team up with the thief Palean and the goddess Diana. But along the way, she must learn how to cope with the death of her mother and her own feelings.
The Pegasus series may be my childhood favorite, alongside Rick Riordan’s Percy Jackson series. The detailing and plot twists in this novel make it a true suspense story. Kate O’ Hearn’s writing style makes this an easy read. Once I started reading, I could not stop until I finished. Pegasus - The Flame of Olympus is a truly amazing book that will appeal to those who love reading suspense and mythology stories.

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.
