Product Overview

He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all. Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos. The Kanes' only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent's own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia. To find the answer they need, the Kanes must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician who might be able to lead them to the serpent's shadow . . . or might lead them to their deaths in the depths of the underworld.

Nothing less than the mortal world is at stake when the Kane family fulfills its destiny in this thrilling conclusion to the Kane Chronicles.

From the Publisher
Editors Note When Apophis, the chaos snake, threatens to plunge the world into eternal darkness, siblings Carter and Sade Kane plan to use an ancient spell to destroy the snake, but first must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician.
Annotation 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.
