Totally awesome and fantastic book! In this third book in the Kane Chronicles, Sadie and Carter once again save the world from destruction of course. Their adventures are thrilling and funny and this is another book that you won't want to put down. I did find the fact that Sadie was in a love triangle that included the God of the Dead a bit Shades of Twilight remnicient, but, that seems to be the popular theme nowdays, so I can see how it managed to wind up in this book too. I think the book is really funny and I totally enjoyed the humor in it. Here is one of my favorite parts: Neith is an ancient Egyptian warrior goddess and a hunter - here is something she says: "The end of the world? I've seen that coming for eons....I'm prepared. I've got an underground bunker stockpiled with food, clean water and enough weapons and ammunition to hold off a zombie army." That part of the book and many others are totally hilarious. This book had me laughing out loud many times. Good story, well written, and wickedly funny. What more can you ask for? Huge thumbs up to Rick Riordan!
Several young magicians must face an end of the world scenario that appears in Egyptian mythology. Carter and Sadie Kane, with help from many other magicians and several of the ancient Egyptian gods, plan to destroy chaos and restore order to the world using a dangerous spell that could get them killed.RIck Roirdan mixes humor with ancient Egyptian mythology in this third and final book in the Kane Chronicle series.
I love all of his books so much! This book was great.
Apophis is rising and chaos is about to destroy the world. And only Carter and Sadie Kane can stop him. But the only ones left to stand with them are the young magicians of Brooklyn House as their allies are being attacked, the House of Life is divided and on the brink of the civil war, and the gods themselves stand apart. To put an end to Apophis they need to find a spell that has been lost for a millennia and the only one that can lead them to it is the ghost of a deadly magician. Can Carter and Sadie do the impossible one last time? Or will the world fall into chaos?In this third and final book in the Kane trilogy, Riordan once again weaves his magic to create an epic battle and a memorable story. Riordan weaves a tale that will keep the reader on the edge of the seat through the twists and turns that are created, wondering and hoping that all of our heroes survive to do battle one more time. There’s plenty of humor, some romance, the return of old friends, and lots of fun twists in this tale. And possibly a hint or two of future adventures to come. It’s an epic read and I highly recommend it.
