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.
Exclusive to the paperback edition: "The Son of Sobek", an exciting new short story from Rick Riordan where Carter Kane meets Percy Jackson!

      Carter and Sadie Kane are the twin descendants of very powerful magicians. They are struggling to keep Apophis, the god of chaos, from gaining power. Ra, the sun God, is also being babysat by Zia. Carter and Sadie can only hope that trusting Setne will help lead them defeating Apophis. Overall, I thought this book was a good finish to the Kane Chronicles trilogy. If you are interested in Egyptian mythology or enjoy the Percy Jackson and the Heroes of Olympus series, then you will definitely find yourself interested in this. I rate this book 5/5.
