"I love this book series.(i'm still reading tho, only on the second book) l love how it deals with the Olympians and stuff like that. the funny thing is when i got this book i thought it said it was the 1st book, but as i was reading it(in the middle somewhere) i found out it was actually the 4th book. Even tho it was the 4th and it made no sense it's a really, really good book and it makes a little bit more sense now that i have read the first book and starting the 2nd one. It does have a few swear words here and there but they're very scarce. This book has adventure, action, and fantasy. :) " said.

This is the fourth book in the Pegasus Series. I absolutely LOVED it!

Emily is The Flame of Olympus. She thought she was an ordinary girl, but she is very special. She is a fantastic character, who has faced many challenges in the previous books and triumphed. When her beloved Olympians become ill, she embarks on her biggest adventure yet.

I have a soft spot for Emily and Pegasus, and when I heard that this book was due for release, I immediately pre-ordered it! This is a fantastic adventure, filled with danger and amazing twists and surprises. In this story, we are taken on an amazing journey through time and space. We get to meet the Titans as they battle with the Olympians in ancient Greece. The action is intense, and we meet a lot of new characters including Stella and Vulcan. Emily makes a shocking discovery in this story that changes her life once again. I found myself getting rather emotional in places, as there are some very sad scenes, but there is also a few witty scenes that had me smiling. I struggled to put this book down, and was disgruntled when I had to! I love the imagery created by Kate O'Hearn, as it felt like I was actually there.

Kate O'Hearn has created a world for Pegasus and the other Olympians that is completely believable. I love her writing style, which is very descriptive and flows beautifully. She is now one of my favourite authors. I love this series, and I hope there are more adventures to come! I highly recommend this book, and series, to children of 11+ and adults alike, as this is one of the most exciting stories I have read in a long time. - Lynn Worton (WaAR)

" I really love all the emotions in this book. When Pegs dies, there was SO much emotion, so I cried all 10 times I read this book. I would tell anyone in this world to read it. There is a mix of Greek mythology and science fiction. Also, you would NEVER get bored of it. I really, really love this book. " said.

"I really enjoyed the plot (except for that "romance," but we'll get to that later). The writing was... not so great. I was cringing at times. I looked back at the other books and it was good. Much better than this anyway. What happened? (You should know by know. Spoilers ahead. If your not planning on reading this than I implore you to read on and laugh at my rambling).Regardless, I sill love Paelen (Ugh Paelen D:). I feel like she should have revealed that it would bring them back later on in the plot, because it took away a lot of the sadness for me. I did audibly gasp about Chiron though... I think it was more because of Mr. Brunner but who cares. It shocked me. but hahaha Juno was the first to die. Again pjo weaving its way into other series. Okay, so I feel like we kind of just forgot about Agent T and Alexis. We saw them like once and then we left and they stayed and they were never mentioned again. I like Alexis so that was kind of annoying. I really thought that Agent B was the Titan spy. I wish we had figured out who it was. I feel like all of the conflicts were resolved too easily. Emily was really annoying. Especially when Riza was like all you have to do to get out of this energy void is calm down. The more you fight, the more you trap yourself. Emily just kept shooting fire everywhere. Like girl. Listen to RIZA! She knows what your supposed to be doing! Do it! Ugh! Actually, Riza really creeped me out at first. I agreed with Paelen like, Emily stop saying we you have no clue how creepy that is. I guess we''ll see why her vaporizing all of the titans was a bad thing in the next one. Riza seems to think it's pretty bad. I partially agree with her. They were gonna die though so... Okay. The time has come to talk about the romance. *Bursts out laughing* I wish I was Joel and didn't remember that. The entire time I was flashing back to Gregor and Luna's random romance in Gregor and the Code of Claw(is that the last one? I think so.). It was so reminiscent of it. I can't really say anything else about it... that pretty much sums it up. Poor Paelen though. He had a rough time this book. It was completely unforshadowed, but I was still upset about it. Paelen was my favorite character. You could see how that upset me. So, Steve... I'm really sorry to tell you this, but Diana is a maiden godess. Sorry :P. Stella! I really liked her. Emily healed her, so does that mean she's immortal. That's why Agent B didn't want to be healed. He didn't want to live forever. Stella must've eaten the ambrosia too. It doesn't matter though because time travel. Whatever. I hope that we get to see her in the next book. We probably won't though, considering that little boy in the 3rd one that was really important to the plot was never heard from again. I want to see Emily convince Stella to come with her. And Agent B. That would be fun. I feel like Agent B would try to shoot her as soon as he saw her and Emily would just vaporize the gun. Emily's powers were kind of all over the place. When she had that epiphany at the end where she was energy that was really confusing. I thought she was going to be a phantom or something but she stayed in her "human form" How boring. I hope we leave Xan. I don't like it there. I like Olympus much better. Okay. I think I've rampled on long enough. Oh wait Mike. I get the feeling that Mike is not a normal dog. He just attacks dragons like he doesn't care. Weird. We'll probably never know. Okay. NOW I'm done. Yup. I think the next one's out(with a different cover :(. That's one really good thing about the series. The covers are really pretty. Cheesy at times, but still pretty. Oh well I'll survive. Maybe." said.

" So best one so far. And still am addicted " said.

" O'Hearn went "oh hey, that was a popular series - let's add lots of random content, over-inform the reader, and create some books with nothing to do with Pegasus. Who needs the book's main characters when the word 'Xanadus' sounds cool?" " said.

"I really liked this book except it's not as intense as all the other books but it is still really good. I will warn you there is more pages in the book than it says on goodreads. I don't want to spoil it for anyone so I won't give little tiny details but it does get a little intense kind of in the middle and ends at the end of the book, it's not super intense but it is a little intense for Emily because all of the Olympians lives depend on what she does. They do, do a little bit of time traveling bt that is only so they can.......... sorry I won't spoil it anymore. I just love it so much and you just have to read the book and the whole series this is the very last book it does end a little bit like there should be another one just so you know." said.

"I believe that this book lacked some aspects of a book which makes a book enjoyable. First of all, character development. The characters need a lot of work, especially more than the regular plot feelings. All the characters act the same, have the same characteristics. Of all characters, I believe that many of the gods were the same. In my opinion, the gods should act differently to show who they truly are(their powers). All the characters have the same wants and needs, and there isn't a lot of depth to them which can create an attachment for the reader. Also, the plot is the same each time. The CRU come in, and one of the agent's change and becomes kind. Really? You've been working for years for an organization which has turned you mean and cruel and you change in just a couple of days? Talk about unrealistic. This book doesn't seem very well thought out, and you can see that through the characters and the plot." said.
