Soar with Pegasus
Ladies (and gentlemen too), are you a fan of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series? Do you love stories that are equal parts myth and action? Are you familiar with Kate O'Hearn's Pegasus series? Trust me, you'll love it. A normal thirteen-year-old girl is thrust into a battle between Roman gods and stone warriors. Why? Because Pegasus crashed onto her Manhattan roof during a storm. Their latest adventures were published yesterday. Find all four books at the Hoover Public Library.
