Pegasus and the Flame: Shadow of the Dragon: Fans of her first novel will love the latest adventure for Emily and her winged horse Pegasus. Throughout her life, she has always had an active and vivid imagination. As a child walking down Fifth 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. The World According to Anna. The Unfinished Novel and Other stories. From the Place in the Valley Deep in the Forest.

Praise for Pegasus and the Fight for Olympus: Kate's first book, Shadow of the Dragon: Jupiter is a true leader, shielding the Nirad queen from harm and she has become another favorite character of mine. The pink Nirad is full of grace and humility and love for her people and others.
With the joining of the Olympian World and the Nirad world, feasting in harmony for celebrating the peace and their dead, I wanted to feast with all of them as both races, totally different from each other joined together, setting race aside. This I was actually quite pleased with how the author correlated the politics to represent a deeper understanding. I am pleased and very honored to fight alongside the Olympians. I am pleased to see the growth with Emily as she harnesses her powers and finally understands who she really is. What does the author have in store for her in the next book?

Editorial Reviews. From Booklist. In this latest book in the Pegasus series, all seems swell in Olympus. Surrounded by loyal friends like Pegasus and Paelen. I've read the first book of this series called "Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus" and this first . Pegasus and the Fight for Olympus by Kate O'Hearn is the sequel to.
Emily, with the help of her new friends. Joel and Paelen, they defeated the Nirads and freed Olympus. But Emily does know a winged friend who can help. I found this book really interesting because it was a new way of combining ancient greek and modern time. It really caught my attention with all the action and excitement. I had to put the book down once or twice to calm myself. There were some parts I found a little slow, but not for long, this book kept me feeling excited throughout it. I feel like this book has more action to it then no action, I feel like this book was a little slow at the beginning, but as I read through it got more exciting.
I like the authors perspective of how she presented the world in this book and how magical it was. This book made me feel a lot of emotion, this book definitely got my attention when I first opened it. I think the theme of the book is about how when Pegasus entered into Emily's life it changed forever. And how Emily had to learn how to control her emotions of fear and anger, especially for everyone she loved.
Emily knew she had a big responsibility from being the Flame of olympus. Instead of keeping her powers a secret she told her friends, who helped her gain control over her powers. Oct 22, Riya B rated it liked it. I love Emily, I really do, but she can be stupid at times. I understand she loves her dad, but if my Mom were there I would find a plan that makes sure she makes it out alive, not do some impromptu run!
I do understand she was desperate but still. Emily, hun, you gotta control yourself. I do love the book, I just didn't find the spark that I feel when I'm reading a book that draws me closer to it.
Not my favorite and it's not something that I would go all Gaga for. I've read the first book of this series called "Pegasus: The Flame of Olympus" and this first book showed a lot of promise. The lead heroine Emily was a can-do girl and nothing will stop her from protecting what she believed is right and her friends and family. I gave this first book a lot of slack especially with the lack of villain complexity the villains were very black and white to a cartoony level and lack of depth in the story and characters as not only is this a first book of a series b I've read the first book of this series called "Pegasus: I gave this first book a lot of slack especially with the lack of villain complexity the villains were very black and white to a cartoony level and lack of depth in the story and characters as not only is this a first book of a series but one targeted to grade school kids.
I knew if I was a young girl in fifth grade I would have adored this kind of story and probably would have re-read it several times. Sadly, the potential of "Pegasus: Olympus at War" never did measure up to what I was hoping for. I was very irritated by the back seat that Emily, who was the leading lady, was placed into time and again. While her male friends were doing all of the dangerous legwork, they constantly pushed down Emily to a damsel-in-distress position and that irritated me to no end.
I'm a big fan of strong female characters, and kid or no, Emily's most recent character changes from book one to book two was a huge let down. In fact, until the very end of the book I was not inspired by her place in the story at all. I understand she had to go through some changes with her newest role but it was done in such an extremely passive way that Emily's character was totally killed for me.
One good thing about this second book though was that the villains were finally put in a more complex light. Not too cartoony nor black and white and regained much of that complexity that I was starving for in the first book. The supporting characters also had more complexity as they grew to more than what they were, particularly Joel who is the only human in their adventuring party.
However, the big negative was the development of Emily who should be more important since the story is about her and I honestly can't forgive her for being so passive throughout the majority of the story. I was honestly excited to read this second book after the first but now that I have read it, I can honestly say that I will not be reading the third upcoming book in this series. There are some "Independent Readers" books that are enjoyable to read for both kids and adults like the Harry Potter books or the Percy Jackson books.
This book series is sadly not one of them. Jul 09, Wynee Igel rated it liked it. I was interested in reading about what happens. The author continues to add twists in the plot as well as the main character, Emily. The dilemma of wanting to do something, but not really knowing what to do as well as can't for the good of the group is something many kids can relate to. She's certainly imperfect and young readers can relate to. Sep 16, EllaB Red rated it it was amazing. One of my favorites in the series. Apr 18, Summer Thompson rated it it was amazing.

Jan 11, Asavari rated it really liked it Recommends it for: People who like Pegasus and the Flame.
Recommended to Asavari by: I read and liked the first one. This is a review for my 1 Year, Books Challenge. For more info visit here Pegasus and the Fight for Olympus by Kate O'Hearn is the sequel to Pegasus and the Flame and if you haven't read my review for that read it here at http: Emily - Stayed pretty much the same as she was at the end of Pegasus and the Flame. She's got some new troubles now because of This is a review for my 1 Year, Books Challenge. She's got some new troubles now because of her new status.
She didn't have as much action as I wanted her to have, since she kept on being left behind at the Red Apple with Pegs while the rest of the gang is going on missions.
She's still a great heroine that is compassionate, caring, and likeable. Joel - Joel has really grown since the start of the 1st book, he no longer has anger management issues, and is more caring, brave and observant. He is really quite an asset for the team now. Cupid - Although I missed Diana, Cupid made quite a good addition to the team. I liked how he was a teenager rather than a little cherub I did not pick up this book to read about babysitting adventures!
I liked how he could charm people into falling head-over-heels in love with him, and that made Agent T totally funny too. Cupid was quite a wimp at times though. Paelen - He's still the same cool guy as he was at the end of the previous book, I like how he gets into fights with Cupid. The Nirads - It's great that the Nirads got some more screen time in this book.
I liked their depth and their backstory, Tange and Segan were totally sweet and awesome. I still can't properly visualize any Nirads in colours other than grey, black, white, and pale green. The Gorgons - I thought it was great that the Nirads had a reason to attack the Olympians rather than the emotionless killing machines that they seemed to be. The gorgons have an actual reason for wanting to destroy the Olympians.
It was also good that people don't turn into stone when they look at them but the Gorgons can choose to turn them into stone when they want to. Others - It's great that Diana makes a cameo appearance in this since she can't be part of the main cast. Jupiter and Neptune also behave like I would expect them to. The plot of this story was a good continuation of the plot of Pegasus and the Flame. It flowed well, was coherent and was interesting. It was great to see more of Olympus in this book, especially now that it had been rebuilt and all.
It was also interesting to see the world of the Nirads. The writing stayed pretty much the same as it was in Pegasus and the Flame, so it wasn't much to comment on, but it was fine. For more of my reviews visit my blog I am so happy I have got it because it is a book worth buying. Emily has been on Olympus with Joel and Paelen. Emily's father is in the CRU. But she is probably going to go with Paelen and Joel. Emily was chosen to be the Flame of Olympus. Until when Pegasus Pegs. Came crashing onto her roof and she learned about the gods.
But this triggered the Nirads because they started tracking Emily and Pegs down. And the CRU also noticed something fishy was going on and since the realized that they started going after them or you might say investigating about this. Until the Nirads started coming they began to see the Nirads are creatures that have four arms and were gray. And they didn't see that everyday. They captured Joel, Paelen, Pegs, Emily and even diana. After they escaped and the fight between the Nirads and the Olympians had calmed down Emily had accepted the fact that she was the Flame of Olympus and had to sacrifice herself for the Olympians she did it voluntarily so she can save Pegs.
But since Emily had sacrificed herself she was reborned from the Flames. Okay, now you understand what happened in the past. And probably understand why they are torturing Emily's father. But that is not all that is happening in this book. Olympus is under attack again. By the Nirads or is it even the Nirads. Maybe or Maybe not. To Find out read the book.

But not for long When the gruesome Nirads begin a new invasion, Emily and her friends become entangled in the conflict as old grudges are unearthed and new enemies are discovered. Join Emily astride the magnificent winged-stallion, Pegasus, as she e Synopsis: Join Emily astride the magnificent winged-stallion, Pegasus, as she embarks on a new flight of adventure through worlds both old and new.
I enjoyed this book, though it got a little slow at times. While it is clear that it is for a young adult audience, at times the content seemed really dark to me, a lot of violence, torture, imprisonment, black mail and manipulation.
With that said it is obvious that there was a lot of adventure and action within the story. I must say I became a big fan of Tange and was rather astonished at the ending. I will definitely be reading the next books. Emily went through an epic adventure and it seems to be that the time has come to start yet another one. Just recently Emily was reborn into The Flame of Olympus and with it came some powers that she cannot handle.
Everything was peaceful until the Nirads invaded Olympus yet once again. Matters in the past that were settled have been brought up again and new enemies are being discovered. During the invasion Emily sneaks back to New York on Pegasus to save her father.
She goes through yet another adventure through both worlds old and new. I think that this book is just like the first. There is only one word to describe it. OMG why did that happen to, I was reading this in class and I was like "no no wait" then it was like "what the fuck!
I thought it was a great book because it had a lot of action and it was fantasy which I like so if you like stuff like that I recommend this book,. May 08, Emileigh rated it it was amazing. Fantastic with lots of action and that twist of mythology that we all love. Can't wait to read the next book. Jun 03, Jasmine rated it it was amazing.
