I absolutely loved this book. It kept me up late reading and I was never bored. I really wish that Rick Riordan would do a full crossover series with the Percy Jackson series or even the Heroes of Olympus.

Great last book to the Kane Chronicles. The humor was relevant, the characters entertaining, and the story was overall pretty well written.

*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.

1 word. WOW! my absolute fave book. VancouverCanuck is being rude and irrelevant. He might want the one by another author. YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK!!!!!! If you want to know why then read the quotes section

Weasel cookie

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

“A weapon, I told Horus. I need a weapon.
I reached into the Duat and pulled out an ostrich feather.
“Really?” I yelled.
Horus didn’t answer”
