Publisher's Summary

When young magicians Carter and Sadie Kane learned how to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods, they knew they would have to play an important role in restoring Ma’at (order) to the world. What they didn’t know is how chaotic the world would become.

The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the Earth in three days’ time. The magicians are divided. The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak.

Walt, one of Carter and Sadie’s most gifted initiates, is doomed and can already feel his life force ebbing. Zia is too busy babysitting the senile sun god, Ra, to be of much help. What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?

There is possibly one way to stop Apophis, but it is so difficult that it might cost Carter and Sadie their lives, if it even works at all. It involves trusting the ghost of a psychopathic magician not to betray them, or worse, kill them. They’d have to be crazy to try it. Well, call them crazy!

With hilarious asides, memorable monsters, and an ever-changing crew of friends and foes, the excitement never lets up in The Serpent’s Shadow, a thoroughly entertaining and satisfying conclusion to the Kane Chronicles.

    "Good Story, male narrator could be better"
    Would you listen to The Serpent's Shadow: The Kane Chronicles, Book 3 again? Why?

    Probably. I did enjoy listening to the story, but found the male narrator to take away from my enjoyment of the book.


    What three words best describe Katherine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free ’s voice?

    Katherine is great at showing emotion in her voice, and her accents are great. I enjoyed her chapters very much. Kevin has much less inflection in his voice, and his accents and pronunciations are awful. Every time he pronounces Bast as Bosst I wanted to twitch. I understand there's no way to know the correct way to pronounce this name, however, it's generally the way the female narrator pronounces it. If anything, whoever was overseeing his project (and the other two books) should have had them both say it the same way. Kevin make a Russian accent sound like a weird mix of French and something else, and when he speaks for Saddie she sounds like a stuck up old Brit, not a young cockney girl.

    "Two amazing narrators!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Serpent's Shadow: The Kane Chronicles, Book 3 to be better than the print version?

    Yes, simply because the print version is made out to be a transcription of an audio recording. So hearing it performed by two wonderful narrators added a whole new level to the book.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only the other two in the series. They're all fantastic.

    "great book series for all ages"

    best book series is the closest thing that you're going to get to a new modern day Harry Potter book series.... But instead of dealing with Wizards and witches you're dealing with gods and magicians of ancient Egypt in modern day Society.... Very masterfully Blended.... If you enjoy books with drama and suspense and Magic and you have stumbled upon the perfect book series

    "The ending was lacking..."

    The climax of the book was very short and disappointing, but then the book seemed to go on and on to close it all out. Disappointing end to the series.
