The Serpent's Shadow: The Serpent's Shadow

by Rick Riordan

Disney-Hyperion | May 1, 2012 | Hardcover

The Serpent's Shadow: The Serpent's Shadow is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
He''s b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sadie Kane can''t seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all. Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos. The Kanes'' only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent''s own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia. To find the answer they need, the Kanes must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician who might be able to lead them to the serpent''s shadow . . . or might lead them to their deaths in the depths of the underworld.
Nothing less than the mortal world is at stake when the Kane family fulfills its destiny in this thrilling conclusion to the Kane Chronicles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome This book was GREAT!! And for whoever has read his other books did you notice how Rick made a reference to the Heroes of Olympus. He added Drew and Lacy to the story and they even mentioned Camp Half Blood. Loved that part. When I realized it I laughed my head off.

Editorial Reviews

Riordan''s Kane Chronicles trilogy concludes with a smash, as Carter and Sadie Kane once again try to save the world from the forces of Chaos. The giant Chaos snake Apophis and his rebel magician allies are on the rise. Luckily, Carter and Sadie Kane are back, ready to fight Apophis and restore Ma''at, the order of the universe. The ghost of an ancient psychotic magician offers help: Find the shadow of Apophis, capture it and use it for an execration spell that will pop the evil god so far into the Duat-the magical realm that coexists with our world-that he will never return. As in the previous volumes-The Red Pyramid (2010) and The Throne of Fire (2011)-the tale is told in the alternating and still-fresh voices of Sadie and Carter. Beyond the explosive action and fireworks, Riordan deftly develops the theme of the duality of the universe-order versus chaos, living a normal life versus risking the extraordinary, being protected by parents versus growing up and stepping out of their shadows. A rousing adventure with plenty of magic and food for thought. Other gods and future stories are hinted at in the conclusion; in the meantime, Riordan''s The Kane Chronicles Survival Guide is available to maintain the spell. (glossary, list of gods and goddesses) (Fantasy. 10-14)-Kirkus
