About the book: 

The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow is the final thrilling instalment in award-winning author and Percy Jackson creator Rick Riordan's The 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 is the award-winning writer of the Percy Jackson series, The Kane Chronicles and the Heroes of Olympus series. He lives in San Antonio, Texas, with his wife and two sons. Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief was made into a blockbuster film starring Sean Bean, Pierce Brosnan and Uma Thurman in 2010. The series has gone on to become a chart-topping success.

About the Author

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.
