The Lovereading4Kids comment
Best-selling Rick Riordan brings his thrilling Kane Chronicles trilogy to a dramatic close in this high octane story which fuses magic and mythology in a new world where the rules are very different. Twins Carter and Sadie, descendants of the House of Life are struggling to prevent the forces of evil, led by Apophos, the giant snake of Chaos, from snuffing out hope and plunging the world into eternal darkness. To do so, they will need to find an ancient spell which has been lost for hundreds of thousands of years. Can they find the spell? Rick Riordan creates dangers which set the hairs tingling.
The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan
Is their inherited magic enough to battle against the most powerful mythical forces that Egypt's gods have to throw at them? Carter and Sadie Kane, descendants of the magical House of Life, are in pretty big trouble. Despite their bravest efforts, Apophis, the giant snake of Chaos, is still threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Now the Kanes must do something no magician has ever managed - defeat Apophis himself. No pressure there then. Battling against the forces of Chaos, their only hope is an ancient spell - but the magic has been lost for a millennia. Will they find the serpent's shadow, or will they be led to their deaths in the depths of the Underworld?
