This is the third month of Author Highlights. I love this post because I get to share some great authors I’ve read that are perhaps not that well known. While deciding what author to do I also have a chance to see what some of my childhood authors have written recently. It is exciting and I enjoy sharing these author’s with you. Without further ado, today’s author is…..
Kate O’Hearn is a children’s fantasy writer. She has written the Pegasus series, Shadow of the Dragon’s series, and the Valkyrie series. I have read the Pegasus series, and the first books in the other two series. I love her books. They are wonderfully told stories with the Pegasus and Valkyrie series featuring a stunning combination of modern society with that of Norse mythology.
Emily’s life changes forever when Pegasus, a mythical horse, crashes onto a Manhattan roof. Suddenly, Emily is thrust into a battle between the Roman gods and the Nirads. Along with Joel, a mortal, Diana, a goddess, Paelen,a thief, and Pegasus, she must rescue the gods from certain death all while avoiding a governmental agency bent on dissecting Pegasus. Can she save Olympus before the Eternal Flame burns out?
Freya is dreading turning fourteen. Fourteen is when she takes up the full mantle of responsibility that comes with being a Valkyrie – a collector of souls fallen upon the battlefield. She longs to interact in the human world as a mortal. To make friends without fear of killing them with one touch. Her chance comes when a soldier she is reaping asks for a favor that sends Freya to the human world. On her journey she battles both the ordinary and extraordinary to fulfill her promise.
Kira is twelve and strong willed. The daughter of a retired dragon knight, she yearns for adventure and dreams of following in her father’s footsteps astride her own magnificent mount. But this can never happen. According to the laws of the kingdom, all girls must be married by the age of thirteen. Kira hates it, but being a girl, she has no choice. Kira’s family is taken away by Lord Duncon who has orders to take them to the palace to serve the King. Kira and her sisters are thrown in jail. Their only crime is being unmarried girls. One day they manage to escape but Kira realizes the battle is just beginning. With the help of a baby dragon she sets out on a mission to save her family and keep her sister safe.
