Pegasus and the New Olympians by

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A magical and mighty read befitting a story set in the world of the gods. A clash between the worlds of gods and humans seems inevitable in this richly imagined adventure that blends myth and reality into a story of heroics and heroism. Pegasus, the mighty winged horse whose home is on Mount Olympus, is unique. Or is he? News of a new horse on earth leads Pegasus and Emily off on a mission to find out just who the imposter can be. Uncovering a conspiracy, Emily finds she must choose wisely if she is to prevent the destruction of all that she cares about.


Pegasus and the New Olympians by

News reaches Olympus that a Pegasus lookalike has been spotted in the human world. Tornado Warning is as beautiful and mysterious as the mythological winged-stallion, but was born and bred on Earth. Emily and her friends are determined to fly back to the human world to investigate. Their new mission takes them through the Nevada desert from Area 51 to Las Vegas where they discover a sinister conspiracy. Emily is convinced that they will trace it back to their old enemies - the corrupt governmental agency, the CRU. But what they find is bigger and more dangerous than they ever expected and will pit Olympian against Human in a war of epic proportions. With the fate of two worlds in her hands, Emily must make an impossible choice, otherwise everything she has ever known and loved will be destroyed. Join Emily astride the magnificent winged-stallion, Pegasus, as she embarks on a new flight of adventure through worlds both old and new.

About the Author

Kate O'Hearn was raised in the heart of New York City. She has always had an active and vivid imagination. As a child walking down 5th Avenue, she would envision herself soaring among the city's canyons on the back of a wild dragon. While in Florida, looking over the sea, she could imagine living amongst the whales and breaching in the heavy swells. At night, a star studded sky was yet another playground. These dreams and ideas never faded. Instead they grew until they spilled over into the books she loves to write. Kate's first book, Shadow of the Dragon: Kira, won the 1066 Schools' Book Award.
