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.

This book is yet the best series of Rick Riordan’s books that I personally have ever read or enjoyed reading including the second and first books. Second book is The Throne of Fire, and the first book is The Red Pyramid. I have read hundreds of books but this is a unique exception. Though this book was kind of sad, historical, humorous, and gave much suspense it brought lots of emotions but from the inside it rocked. Go Carter, and Sadie Kane you can do anything (except for the really cheesy ending that kind of, not literally or mostly, messed it up)! I salute you once again Rick Riordan :)

*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.

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

"'Noble.' I agreed. 'That's the first word that comes to mind when I think of pigeons.'"

its the final chapter to Kane Chronicles

They should call it The Kane Trilogy than Kane Chronicles

“I lifted my wand, hoping she would see this as a dramatic move, not a threat. “Why once, in my bunker at Charing Cross Station, I stalked the deadly prey known as Jelly Babies.” Neith’s eyes widened. “They are dangerous?” “Horrible,” I agreed. “Oh, they seem small alone, but they always appear in great numbers. Sticky, fattening—quite deadly. There I was, alone with only two quid and a Tube pass, beset by Jelly Babies, when…Ah, but never mind. When the Jelly Babies come for you…you will find out on your own.” She lowered her bow. “Tell me. I must know how to hunt Jelly Babies.” I looked at Walt gravely. “How many months have I trained you, Walt?” “Seven,” he said. “Almost eight.” “And have I ever deemed you worthy of hunting Jelly Babies with me?” “Uh…no.”

“There’s my baby!” I cried, quite carried away. “There’s my Poochiekins!” Ammit ran at me and leaped into my arms, nuzzling me with his rough snout. “My lord Osiris!” Disturber lost the bottom of his scroll again, which unraveled around his legs. “This is an outrage!” “Sadie,” Dad said firmly, “please do not refer to the Devourer of Souls as Poochiekins.”
