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?

Our customer reviews

Rick Riordan does it again. I 1st came across him when my nephew was reading Percy Jacksons 1st adventure. My nephew is now 20 years old and both of us are still reading Ricks books! This is the 3rd book based on the Egyptian Gods, Carter and Sadie Cane get in to all sorts of scrapes and come through the other side of them still able to tell their tale. There are one or two twists we weren't expecting and Ricks sense of humour shines through each situation the Canes find themselves in. Can they raise Ra the god of gods....... what sort of state will he be in after a couple of thousand years in a nursing home for forgotton Gods, and whats with his Zebra obsession! I'll not spoil the plot for you, but needless to say I couldn't put the book down and had finished it within 48hrs..... Absolutely BRILLIANT Hats off to you Rick!show more
