Pegasus by Robin McKinley

Genre: fantasy

Synopsis: Princess Sylviianel has always known that on her twelfth birthday she too would be bound to her own pegasus. All members of the royal family have been thus bound since the Alliance was made almost a thousand years ago; the binding system was created to strengthen the Alliance, because humans and pegasi can only communicate formally, through specially trained Speaker magicians. But everything is different for Sylvi and Ebon from the moment they meet at her binding - when they discover they can talk to each other.

The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan

Genres: fantasy, adventure, children's

Prequel series: Percy Jackson and the Olympians, beginning with The Lightning Thief

Synopsis: When Jason, Piper and Leo crash land at Camp Half-Blood, they have no idea what to expect. Apparently this is the only safe place for children of the Greek Gods – despite the monsters roaming the woods and demigods practising archery with flaming arrows and explosives. But rumours of a terrible curse – and a missing hero – are flying around camp. It seems Jason, Piper and Leo are the chosen ones to embark on a terrifying new quest, which they must complete by the winter solstice. In just four days time.
