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?

The balance between Ma`at and Chaos must be restored, which means Ra the Sun god has to be found and resume his nightly journey through the sky. Bast the cat goddess, who had been bound into Sadie`s cat Muffin,after being freed from her endless battle with Apophis tells them she has asked an old friend to help out while she returns to see how close Apophis is to feeing himself.
Starting their journey in London for Sadie`s birthday, disasters ensue, from possessed grandparents and a stand off on Waterloo Bridge, then a limo ride to St Petersberg with Bes the dwarf god in spedos before the Egyptian Queen barque through the land of the dead passing through each "House" in turn, facing challenges on the way.
Of course things work out, the bad guys get punished and all is well.
Sadly in my opinion this trilogy does not come up to Mr Riordan's expectedstandard.
In the Percy books, we got used to in depth characters, good continuity in the story lines, plenty of descriptive narrative taking us from place to place & situation to situation.
The Kane chronicles lack much of that. The main characters are irritating and very juvenile, despite supposedly being the next pharaohs of Egypt. They get into a fight/situation/place and whoops, its all over, they won and they are already in the next fight/situation/whatever. They manage to learn all sorts of new magic (of which they supposedly have no previous knowledge) apparently through the ether as there is no description of their lessons/reading etc.
Disappointing given how good the Percy books are
