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.

    "Fantastic series! I wish there were more!"

    I love the Kane Chronicles! They are The perfect combination of historical and fantasy, making them a gripping series that you are eager to hear. The voice actors are terrific, and they really bring the story to life. I find myself listening to these books every six months or so and enjoying them everytime! I highly recommend.

    "great story"

    loved this series the way that the two main characters trade the telling of the tale between each other with asides to each other make the listening more enjoyable. The story of Egypt and their Gods is engrossing and exciting. following the Kane family through the story is engrossing and thrilling. the author keeps the listener invested in the story as well.

    "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?
