Sorry for the lateness of this post. Misunderstandings have occurred. I didn’t realize it was finished so I didn’t get it posted. Oops! Anyhow, here it is.
Pegasus series – Kate O’Hearn
The first book is titled The Flame Of Olympus and it is about a girl named Emily who lives in New York. Her mother has just passed away and her father is a cop and is almost always working, trying to pay off the medical bills left over from her mother’s battle with cancer. While Emily watches a storm one night, the legendary Pegasus crashes into her roof and changes her life forever. There is a special Flame on Olympus that is in danger of going out, because of the war between the Roman gods and a terrifying race of monsters called Nirads. Emily teams up with the goddess Diana, a young Roman thief named Paelen, and a boy named Joel to save Olympus before the Flame goes out.
E – I liked this book series because Emily was such a good character. I liked how she always seemed to try to look on the bright side of things. I also liked how she found love in her heart for almost everyone.
Princess Academy – Shannon Hale
Miri is a fourteen-year-old girl living on the slopes of Mount Eskel. Mount Eskel is the home of a large quarry that produces linder. Miri is content with her simple life, despite the fact that her father won’t allow her to step foot inside the quarry itself unlike everyone else her age. But Miri’s life changes forever when the priests of Danland, the land below the mountain, decree that Prince Steffan’s future bride will come from Mount Eskel. All girls ages fourteen to seventeen have to attend a makeshift academy to prepare them in case they are chosen by the prince in one year. The academy is run by a sharp woman called Tutor Olana. At the academy, Miri finds herself struggling with many things: the competing girls, keeping her old friends, her own conflicting desires to be the one chosen, and perhaps biggest of all, proving that she isn’t the small, weak, little girl she thinks everyone sees her as. But when danger strikes the academy, it is Miri, named after the tiny mountain flower, who has to save her classmates, and their village.
E – I liked this book because Miri was another character that I found very relatable. I liked that she felt like she was always in some conflict with herself but she never let it take over.
Keep your eyes open. The Q post is coming. 🙂
