The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow is the final thrilling instalment in award-winning author Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles trilogy. 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?


Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 55 million copies of his books worldwide

Rick Riordan

Rick Riordan is a teacher and a writer, and has won many awards for his mystery novels for adults.

He says that the idea for Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief first came to him while he was teaching Greek mythology at middle school in San Francisco.

But rumour has it that Camp Half Blood actually exists, and Rick spends his summers there recording the adventures of young demigods. Some believe that, to avoid a mass panic among the mortal population, he was forced to swear on the River Styx to present Percy Jackson's story as fiction.

Rick lives in Texas (apart from his summers on Half Blood Hill) with his wife and two sons.
