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

We loved it. Having the myth aspects be based in actual myths makes this educational and fun.

Love the trilogy, narrators get a bit grating

I love these books and the fun side bits of knowledge. At times, the story is a bit too melodramatic, with unnecessary drama. The narrators seem to yell at you all the way through. The action/suspense doesn’t build because the narrators are always yelling.

it mostly wraps up.

so.... the ending is slightly lackluster. As if Sadie and Carter just kind of give up on making audio logs even though only one of the issues has been completely solved. I don't know. it may be a bittersweet taste in my mouth due to how attached I became to the narration and the characters from this story. the Kane Chronicles feel so underrated.

Excellent end to an INCREDIBLE series!!!

I will admit, it took me a few weeks to work through the beginning which I personally felt was a little slow, but once the pace picked up for me, I was hooked just like the others! I'm sad to see the series end as it was a very entertaining part of my day, but LOVED this book probably more than the first two. Rick Riordan, you did it again! Fantastically fun ☺
