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.

the two narrators really made it feel as if they were two siblings and helped the story feel alive. very funny with the two main characters always having one thing or another to make me short with laughter! great read for trans and above!
the mythology, and the humor
again the mythology and the humor
yes, the other books previously in this series, and it was just fine
Yes, I love these types of books. They draw you into the history of the story that is being written. The performers on this one were great and did the best that they could to cover the difference between the people in the story.
Sadie Kane is my favorite. She is an absolute firecracker and her love/hate of Walt/Anubis/Carter are absolutely hilarious.
No, This is the first from these performers and I really did enjoy it. It is hard to get all the characters down but they tried and made it fun.
None the movies are never ever as good as the books! I would rather read them then see them.
What I loved most about this and the other two audiobooks is that unlike so many, there were two narrators. It may not have been the authors intention but the fact that these books are written as a narration makes them perfectly suited for audiobooks.
I would compare them to Rick Riordans other works.
Not to give anything away but I particularly like the Walt/Anubis hybrid story arch. Nothing like a well written love triangle to hook me.
The Narrator that read for Carter was absolutely flawless, however Sadie's narrator has a less than ideal British accent. I did eventually get over it, but at first it was hard to imagine it coming from a 13 year old girl.
