Summary

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?

My review

I like the way it is split into two parts Sadie and Carter. I think it’s a bit mysterious and sometimes unclear about the plans but then you realise and it all makes sense. The performance is very good and I love the beginning and end music. It’s a great thing to listen to. Though It could be improved

R.R books

I like all of R.R books 📚 but these are my favorite of all the books because it’s more intense and the two characters are close

such a shame I hope the writer reads this.

shame I loved Percy Jackson had high hopes for this. but the story telling sucked they just we rent right... but worst part of it was this 12 year old girl did I mention 12 years old spent more time talking about getting shivers over guys than fighting the war.... to the point t I felt a little uncomfy at times shame like I said

Another success from Rick

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. To be honest I'll recommend all books of this serie.

What did you like best about this story?

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.

Which scene was your favorite?

It's impossible choose only one moments... all the book is wonderful.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Oh, I laugh a lot...
