The unabridged, digital audiobook edition of The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow, read by Joseph May and Jane Collingwood.
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?

I have not read the print version, however I think the style of storytelling lends itself heavily to an audiobook format.
I love the fact that we get both points of view, and that neither sibling is given priority in terms of the storytelling.
I have listened to the previous two books in this series and the performances in all three were amazing.
I particularly like Jane Collingwood's performance in this book.
Not all shadows fade.
"Another success from Rick"
Yes. To be honest I'll recommend all books of this serie.
I loved the idea of him to explore this mythology so complicated. Rick do it very simple and fit things of reality in a fictional story of a very realistic way. And of course give many twists and have many exciting discoveries in the end.
It's impossible choose only one moments... all the book is wonderful.
Oh, I laugh a lot...
"Love at first listen"
I loved it so much I could not stop listening :) :8 :D :P lol so funny loved it.
