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.

    "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.

    "Great fun"

    Fun romp of a story! I was very amused by what Bast mused at the end "Yarn, dangerous prey yarn ".

    "It's great"

    It was funny how you had Walt and Anubis merge how you had her so angry and astonished and if I were a girl and I was struggling between to boyfriends I would love for them to merge. And Bess with his ugly outfit it just makes me crack up. And his BÔOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! it's just hilarious and overall it's a good book. So that's my review bye. P.S. you should make a book where Greek and Egyptian myths mix together it would bee fun to see how that would work out now i'm really saying bye. :) ;D
