This is a wonderful book! The suspense, allies, just everything makes you sit at the tip of your seat.

A great read if you're interested in Greek mythology, but with a modern twist.

This story is similar to Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson stories.

Emily’s mother died three months ago and Emily is still grieving. When a terrible storm hits New York and throws the city into darkness, Emily’s father, a policeman, is at work and Emily is alone in their apartment on the top floor of the building. She hears great crashing on the roof and when she investigates she discovers a winged stallion – Pegasus. He is not the only creature to have escaped the war in Olympus and some of those who have broken through to earth are those who destroyed the Olympic flame. These Nirads terrorize the city searching for Pegasus and Emily. Danger is also present as evil government forces seek Pegasus to kill him in the name of research. Here is an exciting story that makes great use of the old Roman myths. Reviewed by BPL volunteer EE.

Great fantasy read! Pegasus lands on the rooftop of Emily’s penthouse in New York embroiling Emily and her friend Joe in the battle between the Olympians and the 4-armed stoned warriors called the Nirads. Pegasus and Emily must discover the human “flame of Olympus” in order to save both Olympus and the human world.

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.
