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.

    "Engaging to the end"

    I enjoyed this creative and intriguing end to the Kane Chronicles even when I could figure out what was going to happen next. You will enjoy this book more if you read the first two in this YA series.

    "Serpent's Shadow Audio"

    I loved reading this book, but I couldn't stand this lady's voice for even 5 mins before I deleted the audiobook.

    "The Egyptian gods come out to play too!"

    This was a great finale to the Kane Chronicles. For those who weren't aware (very few I'm sure), the Kane trilogy focus on the siblings, Carter and Sadie Kane and how they fit into the lore of the Egyptian gods and goddesses. Just he introduced many readers to the Greek Pantheon and then the Roman gods, Riordan has done an excellent job making Egyptian gods and history fascinating as well. I look forward to the possibility of a additional stories from series, perhaps even some cross over with the other gods who have their home base mountain in New York? Regardless, Riordan's stories are great to read, and as I just found out, great to listen to as well.

    "The final book?"

    This wraps up the two previous books. It does seem that there should be more to come. It does in some of the cross over books but will there be more from the Kane's?

    "Good Story, male narrator could be better"
    Would you listen to The Serpent's Shadow: The Kane Chronicles, Book 3 again? Why?

    Probably. I did enjoy listening to the story, but found the male narrator to take away from my enjoyment of the book.


    What three words best describe Katherine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free ’s voice?

    Katherine is great at showing emotion in her voice, and her accents are great. I enjoyed her chapters very much. Kevin has much less inflection in his voice, and his accents and pronunciations are awful. Every time he pronounces Bast as Bosst I wanted to twitch. I understand there's no way to know the correct way to pronounce this name, however, it's generally the way the female narrator pronounces it. If anything, whoever was overseeing his project (and the other two books) should have had them both say it the same way. Kevin make a Russian accent sound like a weird mix of French and something else, and when he speaks for Saddie she sounds like a stuck up old Brit, not a young cockney girl.

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

    Yes, simply because the print version is made out to be a transcription of an audio recording. So hearing it performed by two wonderful narrators added a whole new level to the book.


    Have you listened to any of Katherine Kellgren and Kevin R. Free ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Only the other two in the series. They're all fantastic.
