Revue de presse

Storytelling that will get readers hooked (Philip Ardagh The Guardian )

Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical. (Times )

Sure to become a classic (Sunday Express )

Présentation de l'éditeur

The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow is the final thrilling instalment in award-winning author Rick Riordan's Kane Chronicles trilogy. Is their inherited magic enough to battle against the most powerful mythical forces that Egypt's gods have to throw at them?

CARTER AND SADIE KANE, descendants of the magical House of Life, are in pretty big trouble.

Despite their bravest efforts, Apophis, the giant snake of Chaos, is still threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness. Now the Kanes must do something no magician has ever managed - defeat Apophis himself. No pressure there then.

Battling against the forces of Chaos, their only hope is an ancient spell - but the magic has been lost for a millennia. Will they find the serpent's shadow, or will they be led to their deaths in the depths of the Underworld?

Rick Riordan has now sold an incredible 55 million copies of his books worldwide

Praise for The Kane Chronicles: The Serpent's Shadow:

'Storytelling that will get readers hooked' - Philip Ardagh, The Guardian

'Witty and inspired. Gripping, touching and deliciously satirical.' - Times

Comme les deux autres tomes, celui-ci contient de l'action, de l'humour (Riri manie bien ce petit outil) mais aussi de l'amour !
Tellement accro à cette saga, je n'ai pas pu attendre septembre pour lire le livre, je l'ai donc lu en anglais et ne le regrette absolument pas. Pour ceux qui appréhendent de lire dans sa langue originale, il faut savoir que les termes employés ne sont pas du tout compliqués à comprendre, même si le vocabulaire n'est pas forcément su, on devine la traduction grâce au contexte. Non seulement on apprend du vocabulaire mais en plus on a le sentiment d'être plus près des personnages étant donné que l'on comprend la linguistique des deux personnages.

Quant à l'histoire, que dire? Simplement géniale, toutes les questions laissées en suspend durant les tomes précédents sont traitées (mais en ce qui concerne la relation Walt-Anubis-Sadie, ça peut paraître un peu compliqué...). Pour ce qui est de Carter et de Zia, j'ai aps mal rigolé de la situation (j'imaginais bien la tête du personnage, et vous saurez pourquoi).

Je suis assez triste que cette saga finisse !! Mais l'auteur ne semble pas vouloir abandonner nos héros car plusieurs pistes (depuis le premier tome)nous laisse entrevoir une suite mêlant Carter et Sadie avec nos héros de Percy Jackson !
Sans compter la nouvelle qui relate la rencontre en Percy Jackson et Carter Kane ne peut qu'être le prologue de nouvelles aventures (enfin j'espère) car je ne vois pas l'intérêt de l'auteur de nous laisser de nouvelles questions sans réponses !

Comme d'habitude, j'ai adoré les oeuvres de Riri, et je suis dans l'impatience de savoir ce qu'il va nous concocter !
En attendant, c'est la Maison d'Hadès qui nous attend !

j'ai 49 ans mais j'adore les livres de Riordan, on rentre facilement dans ses univers de mythologie.
Je n'aime pas les commentaires qui résument l'histoire, alors allez-y, ayez l'esprit ouvert

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An epic conclusion 8 mai 2012
Par Dani Shuping - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
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.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Teaches children history without them knowing it 4 avril 2017
Par Ark1836 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I love this entire series...Rick Riordan wrote a great trilogy bringing Ancient Egypt into modern times. As a parent, what I like the best about this series is that my kids learned Egyptian history and mythology without realizing it...sort of like slipping a vitamin into mashed potatoes. The kids ate it up and learned something at the same time. I took my kids to the Field Museum in Chicago shortly after my oldest read this series, and I was amazed at how much she knew...she saw statues and could immediately identify them and tell the basic story about them just because of this series.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Trilogy Comes to an End with The Serpent's Shadow 3 décembre 2014
Par babyruthy83 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The Serpent’s Shadow brings the Kane Chronicles to an end as the third (and “probably”) final recording of Sadie and Carter. Just like the previous two novels, this one has a great hook:

“Sadie Kane here.
If you’re listening to this, congratulations! You survived Doomsday.
I’d like to apologize straightaway for any inconvenience the end of the world may have caused you. The earthquakes, rebellions, riots, tornadoes, floods, tsunamis, and of course the giant snake who swallowed the sun — I’m afraid most of that was our fault.”

So there you have it: Apophis swallowed the sun! That’s one burning question down, and a whole lot of others to go — like, how did they survive Doomsday if the snake got away with his plan? Well, I guess that’s when you need to read and find out.

However, I did have some other very serious questions at the end of The Throne of Fire:

Are they making the right decision? Despite Ra being a crazy old guy who played with cookies, he was rather needed.

Is this a trap? Everything’s a trap! You need to go with it anyway.

Why would anyone try to ride a double-headed snake? Clearly this earned Carter some serious street cred. It was totally necessary.

What’s with the zebras and the weasels? Well, Zebras are clearly awesome and Ra’s very favorite… and Weasels are sick… though not beyond salvation.

Who’d make a better boyfriend, Walt or Anubis? The answer is… YES.

So many things go wrong as Doomsday approaches — go figure. Sadie and Carter, along with Walter and Zia, the Brooklyn House, and any stragglers… er, supporters, of the First Nome, must fight the greatest threat to human kind. What could possibly go wrong? … Well, they survive to tell the tale, so clearly a few things go right.

The Serpent’s Shadow is driven not only by the impending deadline of the end of the world — as Sadie and Carter search for a way to defeat Apophis and vanquish him– but also by the characters’ interactions, hilarious events (just imagine a kindergartener running around with crayons, screaming “Die! Die! Die!”), and senile senior gods who just want to partake in the fun of fighting the forces of chaos. The third and final installment of this trilogy may not tie everything into a neat little bow (because we know Rick Riordan loves his loose ends… as do we, since it leaves the possibility of continuing the tale), but it is a satisfying end.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 1 OF THE BEST DARN BOOKS EVER 23 juin 2014
Par A Percy Jackson Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
THIS BOOKS IS 1 OF THE BEST. No kids. SPOILER ALERT!!! Sadie/Carter try to save a scroll by Setne, an Egyptian whatever, but Apophis burns it up (curse him) so they get (or are given) a clue- King Tut's shadow (sheut) box. Sadie/Carter find out if they destroy Apophis' s shadow, Lord Dummy would never return. Setne (btw he's dead) says something like, "You can't do the spell without me. It's to complicated!" Which is a utter lie. Hmm... let's call him Sir Most-Idiotic-Brainless-Ghost-Ever. SMIBGE for short. So Walt (Sadie' s dying crush) and Sadie go off and capture Bes' s sheut and restore him (long story). Zia and Carter try to get Apophis' s sheut with SMIBGE (longer story) Walt and Anubis (Sadie' s other crush) meld together and Sadie comes and saves the day (don't even ask). Then Ra and Zia oh MUST become one (poor Carter-can't kiss his girlfriend without kissing the sub god) Lord Dummy (remember me, the git? He says) swallows Ra/Zia and.... let's just say Lord Dummy dies (ahem, pardon me, permanent exile) and the gods follow. Zia/Carter/Sadie no longer host gods. Walt/Anubis (Walt, Sadie decided) is still Walt/Anubis though. Now proudly entitled, Sadie's-Boyfriend. Zia and Carter are dating, too. (As I quote,"I could sense about twenty jealous guys") so yeah. Tata.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Final Installment to This Series 12 mai 2012
Par A - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
SPOILER FREE:

My son is now 11 years old and just finishing up 5th grade, and he is an avid Rick Riordan fan. He enjoys the fantasy aspects of the stories, the descriptive passages of the books, the excitement inherent in the extreme time compression (stories take place usually within the course of a week or less), and the humor (take that last one for what it's worth - if you've ever listened in on 11 year old boys and their jokes, you know what I mean about that).

With The Serpent's Shadow, Riordan has made yet another solid contribution to the world of apocalyptic kid lit. As with previous installments in this trilogy, the story is told in the alternating voices and points of view of Carter and Sadie Kane, which can be jarring for kids who are used to books that are written entirely from one character's point of view or from an omniscient narrator's point of view. I think the device works well, once the reader gets used to it, especially since both protagonists are carefully drawn and very consistent in their characterizations. It also allows Riordan to pack a lot more action into his plots, since the reader can be two places at once, and it builds cliffhangers into each character's separate journeys as the reader switches from viewpoint to viewpoint.

Which brings me to my favorite aspects of the books: I enjoy the storytelling almost as much as my son does. But, apart from the fact that the books are well-written, funny, and move along quickly, I love love love the way they hook my son into exploring vocabulary and world history on his own. And I think they are genius at exploiting the opportunities that are available to kids via today's technology. You don't need an e-reader to enjoy reading these books as books - they are wonderful on their own - but if you have an e-reader with a dictionary and a browser, they become completely amazing educational tools.

The day we got this book, my son's teacher had sent home a love note indicating that he was way WAY behind on his dictionary (students were told at the beginning of the year to keep a list of words they learned while reading independently, and my son had about half the number of words his teacher wanted to see by this point in the school year). Enter The Serpent's Shadow and my kindle application. As my son read the book, he was able to highlight new words and words he wasn't sure of and get their definitions straight from the app. He also delved into Egyptian history and mythology as he read, taking time to look up the gods' official stories and compare them with the characters presented in the book. Any book that arouses that kind of curiosity while managing to entertain on the most basic level gets five stars from this mom. With bonus points for tight writing and a well-crafted plot that, for a story about gods, relies surprisingly more on logic and character development than it does on deus ex machina.

There is enough explication in this book to enable the reader to understand what is going on even if he or she has not read the first two books, but I really do recommend starting at the beginning. The series goes fast, and it's well worth reading. I also suggest having research and vocabulary tools available, whether online or in hard copy, because there's a lot of enrichment to be had within these books.
