" Sadie Kane here.
If you're listening to this congratulations! You survived Doomsday.
I'd like to apologize straight away for any inconvenience the end of the world may have caused you."
LOVE the chapter titles! "Don't worry, Be Hapi" and "I Become a Purple Chimpanzee" "Sadie Rides Shotgun (Worst. Idea. Ever.)"
He gave us a toothless grin and hobbled around the roof, muttering, "Weasel,weasel,weasel.Cookies,cookie,cookie,cookie!" he reached into the fold of his loincloth and tossed cookie crumbs in the air like confetti- And yes it's disgusting as it sounds
"Last week she’d [Sadie] created a magical Thermos with googly eyes that levitated around the room, yelling, 'Exterminate! Exterminate!' until it smacked me in the head." - Carter Kane

The "Serpents Shadow" is the epic conclusion of Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles. In the "Serpents Shadow" the siblings, Sadie and Carter Kane (who have led there friends through unbelievable dangers), have their final battle with Apophis, the chaos snake, in Egypt
*Spoilers if you have not read the first 2 books* Carter and Sadie Kane are almost finished their quest, defeat the "Serpent", Apophis. But the road is bumby and they start to wonder if this quest is even possible. And add that to their personal dramas, they are almost completely overwhelmed. But never the less, they struggle on, knowing that if they fail, then all of mankind will perish.
Carter and Sadie Kane find themselves on the eve of the apocalypse with no clue what to do and a thousand and one problems to deal with before they can even think of confronting their ultimate enemy: Apophis. In the conclusion to the Kane Chronicles series, both characters find themselves in a race against time as they scramble to gather the pieces of the puzzle surrounding Apophis and unite the House of Life before it's too late.
