"As they solve puzzles and fight demons, the siblings grow in confidence and ability. Their wry asides and comedic takes on their predicament keep them accessible to their adventure-loving audience, many of whom will enjoy the romantic byplay between Carter and Zia and between Sadie and Walt."
"Beyond the explosive action and fireworks, Riordan deftly develops the theme of the duality of the universe-order versus chaos, living a normal life versus risking the extraordinary, being protected by parents versus growing up and stepping out of their shadows."

Carter and Sadie Kane aren't strangers to magic, mythology, and the end of world, so the reappearance of Apophis the chaos snake doesn't phase them. Of course, this time the pair must find a way to permanently get rid of Aphophis, ask for help from various, tricky gods, cope with devious magicians, and avoid civil war. At the same time, they are each coping with their own complicated love lives, and keeping their band of very young initiates on track. With appearances of characters from the Percy Jackson series and lots of adventure, the final book in the Kane Chronicles trilogy is sure to thrill fans.
Carter and Sade prepare for the ultimate confrontation with the chaos snake Apophis at the same time the House of Life magicians launch a civil war, compelling the Kanes to tap the power of an ancient spell.
