Their new mission takes them from Area 51 to Las Vegas, where they discover a sinister conspiracy. Emily is convinced that they will trace it back to their old enemies - the corrupt governmental agency, the CRU. But what they find is bigger and more dangerous than they ever expected and will pit Olympian against Human in a war of epic proportions.
With the fate of two worlds in her hands, Emily must make an impossible choice; otherwise everything she has ever known and loved will be destroyed. Join Emily astride the magnificent winged-stallion, Pegasus, as she embarks on a new flight of adventure through worlds both old and new.
by Edith Hamilton
For nearly 70 years, readers have chosen this book above all others to discover the thrilling, enchanting, and fascinating world of Western mythology. From Odysseus's adventure-filled journey to the Norse god Odin's effort to postpone the final day of doom, Edith Hamilton's classic collection not only retells these stories with brilliant clarity but shows us how the ancients saw their own place in the world and how their themes echo in our consciousness today.
An essential part of every home library, Mythology is the definitive volume for anyone who wants to know the key dramas, the primary characters, the triumphs, failures, fears, and hopes first narrated thousands of years ago - and is still spellbinding to this day.
