A young girl, a winged horse, and a war of epic proportions make for an adventurous start to an exciting new trilogy.

When Pegasus crashes onto a Manhattan roof during a terrible storm, 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 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 skylineβ€”all as part of a quest to save Olympus before time runs out.

        A very heart warming and lovely story of a never-ending friendship between the Roman myths reality. Bringing you to a new world full of suspense and fear as Pegasus and Emily (a completely ordinary girl) as they rage through the terrors of the world, fighting the once legendary nightmares to a peaceful new home of dreams, high in the clouds! WARNING: always have something to squeeze because intensity is very strong in this book. Always get to a good stopping point where you won't get anxious. I am being very serious. (something like a pillow to hug should be fine!). Anyways enjoy the book! My opinion it is fantastic. You might want to start on the first book though (unlike I did), but you should still understand it even in like the 3rd book. xD

                  First word that pops into my mind when I think of this book: courage. Emily, a New York girl living in a apartment, finds a winged horse on her roof after she experiences a power outage. What would your reaction be after finding a mythological creature on top of your house? "Oh. There's another horse that's living on top of our house. Hey, Dad! Do you want to call that guy that took care of the other one again?" Probably not. So put yourself in Emily's position. One of the most powerful beings from Mount Olympus thrown is thrown on your roof, you have to defend yourself from psychotic rock monsters, and on top of that you have to make sure a dangerous secret govenment force doesn't find out and run experiments on you for their benefit to "help" the country. Doesn't sound so chill anymore, does it? But that's one of the reasons why I love it so much. It's packed with adventure and twists and turns. It keeps you on your toes and I don't mean that like I put books under my toes. That's weird. I seriously love this book though. I had my doubts about it because I was looking for a good fiction mythology book to read after Percy Jackson and The Heroes of Olympus and this one looked like it was a rip-off of it. Boy, was I wrong! This is definitely worth your money and time. You won't regret it!

                    Same! It was the first book that caught my eye right after the, "Percy Jackson and The Heroes of Olympus" series! And you're right, it's definitely not a rip-off! <3
