Spoilers!!!This is my favorite book in The Kane Chronicles. I love Carter a lot in this book! He seems to acted more confidence, and everyone looks to him as the leader, kind of like Percy in The Last Olympian. CARTER AND ZIA ARE FINALLY A COUPLE!!!! You guys don't know how happy this makes me!

I love Sadie and the whole Walt/Anubis thing! Now you know why I like this love triangle: first, I love Walt and Anubis; second,Walt and Anubis don't fist over Sadie, or anything like that. They join bodies so Walt is able to live, and Anubis can have a mortal form and Sadie doesn't get to choose. Everybody wins!

And Bes is back! Yay!

And the book made references to the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, and Dr Who, and even though I don't watch Dr Who, I thought the references were funny.

The book kind of ended like how The Last Olympians ended with the Second Great Prophesy, which makes me think will Rick Riordan write a spin-off series like he did with PJO? I sure hope so. ( )

This was a really good series! Easy to read and fast moving, it was also interesting and Riordan has a way of really making you care about the characters. That said; I liked Carter a whole lot more than Sadie - who got on my nerves a whole lot.

I must say I'm very excited by the hints at the end that there might be some sort of meeting between the Egyptian gods and the PJO-verse I would be so up for that! ( )

Great book! I love the creative use of Egyptian mythology in the storyline. I like that the characters are written as adolescents who are just starting to explore crushes on the opposite sex, too many books rush into sexual behavior without spending time describing the development of a relationship. The rediscovery of an old love between two gods is a new addition for the older reader. Mr. Riordan stresses the importance of family ties throughout the books in this series as the main characters battle evil while dealing with ancient gods who wish to share their bodies. ( )

WHAT? THIS IS ONLY A TRILOGY? I definitely want more of Sadie and Carter Kane. ( )

Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Their only hope: find an ancient spell that might turn the serpent's own shadow into a weapon.
