Publisher's Summary

The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent’s Shadow, read by Joseph May and Jane Collingwood.

Carter and Sadie Kane, descendants of the magical House of Life, are in pretty big trouble. Despite their bravest efforts, Apophis, the giant snake of Chaos, is still threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Now the Kanes must do something no magician has ever managed - defeat Apophis himself. No pressure there then.

Battling against the forces of Chaos, their only hope is an ancient spell - but the magic has been lost for a millennia. Will they find the serpent’s shadow, or will they be led to their deaths in the depths of the Underworld?

Another success from Rick

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. To be honest I'll recommend all books of this serie.

What did you like best about this story?

I loved the idea of him to explore this mythology so complicated. Rick do it very simple and fit things of reality in a fictional story of a very realistic way. And of course give many twists and have many exciting discoveries in the end.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's impossible choose only one moments... all the book is wonderful.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Oh, I laugh a lot...

Brilliant Conclusion to the Series

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

I have not read the print version, however I think the style of storytelling lends itself heavily to an audiobook format.

What did you like best about this story?

I love the fact that we get both points of view, and that neither sibling is given priority in terms of the storytelling.

Have you listened to any of Jane Collingwood and Joseph May ’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I have listened to the previous two books in this series and the performances in all three were amazing.
I particularly like Jane Collingwood's performance in this book.

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Not all shadows fade.
