Percy Jackson fought Greek Gods. Now the Gods of Egypt are waking in the modern world....

To save their dad, they embark on a terrifying quest from Cairo to Paris to the American Southwest and discover the truth about their family’s connection to the House of Life: an Egyptian temple of magic that has existed for thousands of years.

    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?

    Magic meets mythology in this explosive trilogy of short stories from Rick Riordan. When a mysterious magical disturbance draws magicians Carter and Sadie Kane to New York, they meet another pair of kids with abilities as incredible as their own: Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase! And it's no coincidence that they've all been drawn to the Big Apple. A crazed sorcerer, Setne, is stirring up double trouble, unleashing dangerous creatures from both Greek and Egyptian myth.
