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.
Sadie and Carters voices
I think that the people who are voicing Sadie and Carter are much to old for the characters. After all Carter is supposed to be 16 and Sadie is supposed to be 14 and they are telling the story past tense but not long after it happened, the people who are voicing it are adults. Also I don’t think Sadie would have that strong of a British accent, it would be faded by the time it was the 3rd book.
Best book ever
BEST RICK RIORDAN BOOK
This book is by far the best Rick Riordan book. Ever. Trust me I have read a lot of them. Extremely entertaining and I hope he includes Carter and Sadie in more of his books even though the series is done. U need to get it now. Worth all the money. Also the narrators are very good.
