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.

    "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!!

    "Wonderful Ending!!!"

    This last book of the Cane Series was just as good as the first and second. Loved it. Great job of closing all the loops in the end. Truly a series that I will listen to again!!!

    "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.

    "Characters"

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

    "Not the best book of the three"

    This is Rick's lesser of the three books but still worth listening to so the series can be wrapped up.
