The Serpent's Shadow

The Serpent's Shadow 
By Rick Riordan; Hyperion Books 2012

Summary: He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade 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.

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...

My Review: Definitely my favorite out of the three! Whew! What a great ending! I am devastated that The Kane Chronicles are over.    :(   Well done once again my dear Rick Riordan. Excellent writing  and ever so clever and funny. I laughed out loud through out this book. He is a brilliant writer and he has this amazing way of drawing you in to the Egypitian mythology.  

I especially loved Sadie and Carter in this book. They have grown so much throughout this series. Now they are leaders and kick trash magicians.  Sadie is amazing at magic  and Carter is a great fighter. Both of them had interesting love lives in this book. Sadie was going through a love triangle with Anubis and Walt and I won't give details on that, but I was satisfied. I have a crush on Anubis. That Egpyitian God  makes my heart spin. I blame Rick Riordan and his writing.

In other words this is an amazing book and Rick Riordan's books are amazing. Read them! 

Watch Out For: Kissing, fantasy violence, and magic.
