The Serpent's Shadow (Kane Chronicles #3)
Well, not that too many months away I guess. I wonder if there will be anymore hints about the Manhattan side of the river.....
My brother thinks it would be pretty cool if the Kanes met Percy....
WOW!!!! Just saw the COVER!!!! BEST. ONE. YET. CANNOT WAIT!!!!!
AWESOMEAWESOMEAWESOME!!!!! Rick Riordan has done it again. Really wraps up this trilgoy...with hints to a possible follow-up.
*puts an Imperius curse on Riordan*
*Imperio! don't end the Kane Chronicles series!*
--> hahaha =) well that sounded really lame .
And best of all they hint at the End that there are other gods out there that they might encounter. As in the series, they already hinted that this is the same exact world Percy...more
Why? What went wrong?
Allow me to start off with an obvious fact about my regards to The Kane Chronicles in general: Like many other people, I preferred the Percy Jackson and the Olympians over The Kane Chronicles. I have to admit I consisted of more knowledge of Greek mythology than Egyptian mythology. However, I loved studying both types before reading both...more
Well that was a fun ride! Having started off sluggishly, the (supposed) trilogy didn't exactly end with a bang, but there were quite some fireworks in there nonetheless.
I say "supposed" because the very last paragraph in the book hints at a Heroes Of Olympus/Kane Chronicles crossover (I have a feeling we're going to run into Setne and the Book of Thoth pretty soon - say, September 2012?)! That should be interesting :)
Either that, or Egyptian gods are much less exploitable than the Greek/Roman ones.
I'd be interested to see what Rick would do with a children's stand-alone, however.
Hope this book will save this series. I am looking for a satisfying ending here!
The second book wasn't so good as the first!
I hope the the third book will be better. Rick Riordan,I count on you...
Rick Riordan's always been among my favorite authors so it's not surprising this one nailed it. Like, REALLY nailed! I loved it! :D The plot was great, the characters were awesome, and can I just say I think Anubis is the embodiment (well, as close to embodiment gods go) of uber hotness?
The microscopic downside (because the book was still mind-blowing despite this) of this book was that it s...more
And the only people who have a fighting chance against him are the young brother-sister duo of Carter and Sadie Kane. The twosome are strong Egyptian magicians, who follow the paths of Horusand Isis resp...more
The Kanes face a dilemma. Apophis, using the power of Chaos, is slowly destroying the artefacts that could lead to his destruction. When the Book of Overcom...more
Erm. Not really worth the wait. While I waited I started reading more classics, some fantasy, some biographies. Now this feels like junk. For some reason I've started to look at the mechanical parts of books as well as fan service.
Mechanically, this book d...more
- The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan.
- The main characters were Sadie and Carter Kane.
- The book is the last in the Kane trilogy. The trilogy is about these two children, Sadie and Carter, who are descendants of ancient Egyptian Pharaohs and also very powerful magicians. Sadie and Carter practice their magic through the path of the Ancient Egyptian Gods, a form of magic that has been banned for eons. The first two books were about the children figuring out their...more
First thing first, why the story has to end? WHY?! I wish it can go on forever so I can just keep on reading it, even...more
Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade Kane can’t seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Carter and Sadie must find a way to revive Ra, the Sun God and Apophis's mortal enemy, and help him regain his throne. With pressure and guidance from Isis and Horus, Carter and Sadie set off to find Apophis shadow, and preform a extraction spell that will banish the serpent deep into the Duat. Sadie is struggling with trying to find a way to save Walt...more
However, I still DON'T love the very early teen romance. Riordan seemed to do better with Carter & Zia in this one, it was light and puppy-ish and more about friendship. Sadie and her two lovers were a di...more
I'd like to see Riordan write a book for adults. As in most of his books, this one had fla...more
The Kane's are back. In this new adventure they are facing of Apophis, the god of chaos. It all begins when they head to Texas to retrieve the last scroll on how to defeat Apophis. All of a sudden Apophis attacked and killed all the magicians there, took the scroll and destroyed it. They all disappeared out of sight never seen again. Will magicians join forces with the gods to defeat Apophis or will they fight alone and kill Carter, Sadie and everyone on their side?
I gave this book 4 stars, beca...more
In reading the third (and hopefully final) installment of the Kane Chronicles, I'm reminded as to why I loathed the other two books. They started out great. Then the awesome-factor started going steeply downhill until the very end where it sputters to a stop. To put it simply; it's like a bottle of coke that slowly loses its fizz. But The Serpent's Shadow did somewhat make up for the shortcomings of the second book.
Before I proceed with the rest of my review, I have to ask this questio...more

Ammit ran at me and leaped into my arms, nuzzling me with his rough snout.
“My lord Osiris!” Disturber lost the bottom of his scroll again, which unraveled around his legs. “This is an outrage!”
“Sadie,” Dad said firmly, “please do not refer to the Devourer of Souls as Poochiekins.”
