Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan

My oldest son contributed this review of the Serpent's Shadow.

The Serpents Shadow is a fantastic fantasy novel perfect for ages 11-20 and an incredibly funny third book in the Kane chronicles, there is so much humor that it is hard to tell if it is a comedy or a fantasy.

Readers should be ready for a dose of Egyptian mythology and be almost unable to stop reading because this book is just that good. Hours may pass before you’ve even noticed that it is happening.

 So be sure to check this amazing novel out, I literally cannot describe how great this book is, so see for yourself.

A Parent's Perspective on Rick Riordan

This is the third book of the Kane Chronicles; books one and two were just as exciting and fun. Riordan is known for adding a lot of mythological characters to his novels, which I love. He does it in a way that intrigues the reader and makes them want to learn more about the Roman and Egyptian gods and goddesses. Make sure that you start with the first book to keep up with the characters. It is also a fantastic bonding experience to enjoy a book with your child.

We received a review copy of this title from Disney Publishing Worldwide.
