The Serpent's Shadow

A solid ending to the series. Once again the world will end in n days and it’s up to Sadie and Carter to save that day.

Really, it feels like the second half of The Throne of Fire. We have the same support characters, the same big bad, the same magic, and it doesn’t feel like that terribly much time has passed. Honestly, it’s not a bad thing; it’s just a little bit weird.


The Throne of Fire

I don’t really have particularly much to add for Throne of Fire that I didn’t already say for The Red Pyramid.

Basically, more of the same. The Kanes have five days to save the world (it’s impressive how even something like that can start to get old after a dozen novels…). They proceed to do so.


The Red Pyramid

Red Pyramid would be a lot strong if I hadn’t read Percy Jackson.

Don’t get me wrong. Red Pyramid is still a fine book, although it feels like it’s written for an even younger audience than Percy Jackson.
