Searching my way through the Barnes and noble book shelves, I didn't expect to find Pegasus: The flame of Olympus. I was intrigued by the beautiful cover art and what I read from the inside flap. Another thing that caught my attention was the praise from bestseller Rick Rick Riordian. Now I never been fond of authors giving praises to another author, but for some reason I trusted Rick Riordian's praise because I am such a huge fan of his books series and I love Greek and Roman mythology. Now str [...]

Okayis is a children's book. It is for people 8 and up. It is not complex. It is not deep. It is not adult fiction. It isn't even YA fiction. It is not as complicated nor as deep as Harry Potter or Percy Jackson. It is perfect for the 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th grade set. With that being said, I am an adult and I read it after my 9 year old daughter. I wanted to see what was in it. I don't read many of her books but this one held my attention and I wanted to know what happened. I will read the next thre [...]
So, um, every child should read thisevery teen should read thisevery PERSON SHOULD READ THIS.At the time, I was an innocent child who hadn't been introduced to smexy-hot romance books.What did my small mind latch on to because I didn't know that romance existed??Mythology.So if you're a geek like me who loves all that gods and Hades and Persephone story shit, this is the one for you!Here comes this small girl, Emily. I know, not much more of a fetus compared to me, but you gotta realize that thi [...]
I was really excited about this book. Like, really excited. But as I am beginning to realize, Pegasus (or unicorns, as the case may be) does not guarantee a good book. (As a side note, I once was really excited for a book about killer unicorns that turned out to be really lame.)This book totally killed its potential, let’s see, right about the time I read the sentence starting with a dependent clause. Eye twitch. No, actually, I kinda lost interest with the prologue. Like Ranger’s Apprentice [...]
Overall, I felt a bit frustrated by this book. I really wanted to LOVE it, and while I did enjoy it in parts, I kept feeling like it needed MORE. Even by the end I couldn't quite work out quite what age it was supposed to be pitched at - the language was a little juvenile for it to be YA, but the premise, the age of the protagonist and the interrogation/torture scenes, whilst not being overly grim, made me feel like it was a little old for 9-12s.I couldn't really get a handle on the writing styl [...]
Percy Jackson fans will be happy to learn that there's a new set of Olympians in town. Originally published in the UK, Kate O'Hearn's Pegasus trilogy is coming to the US. Released just last month was the first book, THE FLAME OF OLYMPUS.Written in the third point of view, the narration flips back and forth between Paelen, a thief god, and Emily, a young New Yorker. Paelen attempted to steal Pegasus' bridle during a battle between the Olympians and Nirads and ended up zapped to present time. Emil [...]
I read this book a while ago and it was pretty good.
4 StarsI liked this book but did not really did fall in love with it if that makes sense. I have read many fantasy and fiction books, but this one was really different. I liked the characters and the writing and story line. It was not what I excepted. I just don't understand why Emily could get away with having a flying horse at her dad's apartment so long. I would think that she would get caught sooner or later and how the horse stays with her at the apartment. I would think that people would s [...]
EDIT: Review here!I came into this book expecting it to be either mediocre or bad. It's somewhere in between the two.This is yet another mediocre Percy Jackson cash-in series involving Roman mythology. Sorry to rain on your parade, Kate O'Hearn, but Uncle Rick beat you to it with The Heroes of Olympus series. Oh wait! This book doesn't even deserve to be compared to the epicness that is Heroes of Olympus.Let's start with characters.Emily - Emily is our protagonist. Her main personality trait is [...]
Well, I told myself I wasn't going to focus on writing reviews and become this big top reviewer. Eh. I doubt anyone reads my reviews anyway. Today world, you beautiful wonderous group of curious people for wanting to know what else is out there to read that will stimulate the mind with bubbling imagination. With a child's heart and an open mind, I invite you to open the curtains to this hidden beauty. Pegasus: the flame of Olympus. It is a tale as old as the myth itself and a wonderous re tellin [...]
Alright now that I am awake and bright eyed I am going to give this book my review.It was not quite meh, but I didn't quite love it either.The first thing that really caught my eye was Paelen, but he wasn't really the main character of the story. It was Emily. But I'll get back to her later.Paelen from the start seemed pretty cool, a little wimpy and a little self0interested, but cool and I wanted to read more about him. Instead, he spent almost the entire book in a hospital. That wasn't really [...]
Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus was such an enjoyable book. It honestly felt more like a middle grade than a young adult, even though every label I could find listed it as young adult. I love Greek/Roman mythology so even from the Prologue I was hooked. Kate did a very good job at taking mythology and putting a very interesting twist on it.I'm sure most of you know at least some Greek/Roman mythology. This book includes a lot of characters from mythology such as Jupiter, Pegasus, Neptune, Hercules [...]
Love it! I love Pegasus! And I love Emily's sweet,determined character.The author makes each character Unique and helpful to the book. LOVE IT! Please read!!!

The first book in the Pegasus series, The Flame of Olympus, is a phenomenal beginning. Featuring unforgettable characters and lyrical descriptions, this book is really an excellent fantasy novel.
I couldn't get into this one. I gave it a good go and it wasn't thrilling enough for me to keep going. There's nothing wrong with the writing, I just wasn't invested in the characters and didn't feel the need to go on to find out what happens next.
This is for any young reader who loves Greek myths or liked Percy Jackson. It moves along fairly quickly, but I would have liked a little more depth of character. It was good enough to make me want to read another one.
Really good :) I like that Emily didn't die, and that she has like, a pet Pegasus! YAY My favorite character is probably Pegasus. :)
hey hey hey, I’m going on a spam of books I read in elementary-middle school so here it is :)this sure as heck wasn’t as good as the Percy Jackson series, but it was pretty good! I mean back then I didn’t worry about unrealistic characters bc who cared. if anything, the main character was lacking but the plot line and premise was really good. also Pegasus. also horses & a touch on horse abuse 😪if you’re looking for ages 10+ and Roman mythology, this is the one for younot gonna lie [...]
Read more of my reviews on my blogThe Story"It's really you isn't it?" Emily whispered softly as she stroked the soft muzzle. "You're Pegasus, aren't you?" The stalliondged her hand, inviting another stroke. In that one rain-drenched instant, Emily felt her world changing. Forever. (p. 33)One stormy night Pegasus crashes onto the roof of Emily's apartment in New York City. She soon learns that there is a war going on in Olympus and that the gods are being overthrown by the vicious, monstrous Nir [...]
Loved it that I bought the second book! :)
If anybody knows me, they know I am a huge fan of mythology. Whether it be Greco-Roman, Norse or even something from China or Japan, I'm fascinated. That's why one would think I would enjoy this book. But unfortunately, I didn't. Maybe it's unfair of me to compare this with Percy Jackson, but it's very hard not to when there are certain parallels: the fact that it's taking place in New York City, the fact that it opens with a lightning storm and something being stolen from Olympus, the fact that [...]
I think this book is Amazing! No matter how many times I read it it never gets old! This is an action packed book filled with fantasy and fiction! Warning: If you pick this book up and start reading it you won't be able to put it down until you've read every single word in the book.Emily Jacobs is a normal 13 year old girl living in New York. Ever since her mother died she had a feeling that a part of her heart was removed and like she was missing something. Missing her happiness. One day when a [...]
When a severely injured Pegasus crashes on to her roof during a storm, 13-year-old Emily Jacobs cannot believe her eyes. Pegasus has been sent on a quest to find Vesta's Flame. Can Emily help Pegasus with his quest in time to save Olympus from destruction?This is a fantastic book! From the first page, I was swept into the action.Olympus has been invaded by a virtually indestructible foe. Pegasus has been given a mission to find Vesta's Flame, but things go awry when Paelen accidentally causes Pe [...]
**This might spoil the beginning so be aware of this**This book is so awesome.This book is about a girl named Emily who lives a normal life until a Pegasus crashes on the roof of her building since she lives on the top floor. This all started when the Paelen decide to take the magic bridle of the Pegasus while the Gods were fighting the terrible monsters called the Nirads. The Nirads are also trying to extinguish the flame of Olympus which is the source of power the Gods and if there is no Gods [...]
3.5 out of 5 StarsThis was a quick read. The only reason I am not giving it a higher rating is because I have basically read this book before, in other books. You have Roman Mythology, which like the majority consensus, are wonderful tales, and have been popularized by the very talented Rick Riordan; So this might be for those avid, devout RR/Percy Jackson fans that still want books based around Mythology, whilst waiting for the next RR release.Also, as the title says, the main story revolves ar [...]
It all starts with the love that Emily has for Pegasus as he got hurt when he got struck by lightning in a terrible storm. Emily does not give up on him. She feels a connection and so does Pegasus. The bond and love between them makes them survive from the evil Nirads and a secret agency, the CRU that want to dissect Pegs. They go on an adventure together meeting new people including, people that are good and some that are bad. But, Emily knows that as long as she is with Pegasus it will always [...]
I borrowed this book from my 9 year old god-brother, who didn't want to read it because it had a *girrrl* as the main character. (Also, I'm borrowing books from a nine year old?)If you like Percy Jackson, you'll love Pegasus. This one focused solely on Roman mythology. You have your battle of good vs. evil and the heroine who is more than she knows she is/unknown savior.Nice, enjoyable read. I think I need to go see what else that 9 year old has on his bookshelf.
