Written by Rick Riordan. First edition, 2012. Disney - Hyperion Books.
The Kane Chronicles feature two siblings, Carter and Sadie Kane, powerful magicians descended from the pharaohs Narmer and Ramses the Great.
In The Serpent's Shadow, the Kanes and their trainees look for ways to defeat Apophis in their battle against the forces of chaos.
"The Chaos snake Apophis is loose and threatening to destroy the earth in three days' time. ... The gods are disappearing, and those who remain are weak... What are a couple of teenagers and a handful of young trainees to do?
"There is possibly one way to stop Apophis, but it is so difficult that it might cost Carter and Sadie their lives... It involves trusting the ghost of a psychopathic magician not to betray them, or worse, kill them. They'd have to be crazy to try it..."
