The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan

Sadie and Carter Kane continue to follow the path of the Ancient Egyptian gods in order to restore the world from the powers of Chaos. The brother and sister pair have much to lose if they are unable to restore Ma'at, including themselves.

Sadie still struggles with her two loves, Walt Stone - the boy who is cursed - and Anubis - the god of funerals. Carter also has continued romantic struggles with Zia Rashid.

The two will have to split up and unite the gods if they ever have a chance of winning against Chaos and Apophis. It is a rush against very limited time - with they be able to destroy the snake or will they be consumed by Chaos forever?

The Serpent's Shadow is the final installment in The Kane Chronicles by Rick Riordan (book one and book two). Told in the point of views of both Sadie and Carter, this book is full of wit as well as serious moments. It is a great ending to the chronicles and if readers enjoy Riordan's other works they will be sure to enjoy this book as well. Perhaps readers will see Sadie and Carter sometime in the future as the ending leaves the book rather open ended.
