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.

    "Fantastic narration"

    Fun story and the narrators make it that much better. Great for young teens and some adults will even enjoy it.

    "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

    "Great for our Roadtrip"

    Our family travels full time, following mine or my husband's work schedules. we Roadschool our four children.
    While doing a unit study on Egypt, I stumbled across The Kane Chronicles. And what a delight!!!
    We purchased both the kindle and audioboook versions. That way my older children were able to read ahead while my youngest was able to hear the whole story.
    My husband and I enjoyed the ability to team drive while still being able to 'read' to the kids for school!

    "Another classic series from Riordan!!"

    My friend had bn telling me I shld check this series out for YEARS and after watching the Tut miniseries on tv I decided to finally do it! So happy I did!!! I absolutely lived for Sadie ok! And as a Sickle Cell patient it was so moving to see one of my favorite authors write our life experience into the story so beautifully. I just LOVED it!! And the way everything came together in the end is what always keeps me a fan!! Awesome work Rick!! Can't wait to see what's in store for the next series!!

    "great tale..."

    another fun Riordan read! Love how he teaches the reader a bit of ancient Egyptian mythology and history!
    Some of the narration was quite distracting, such as when Carter is talking in Sadie's voice. The narrator for Sadie was also a bit too smug and sounded too old.
    This wraps the trilogy up but not too neatly and leaves some room for further Kane adventures.

    Sadie Kane is so adventurous and inspiring. And carter is smart and funny.
    Walt-Anubis are pretty cool and nice and talented.
