Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sadie Kane can't seem to keep Apophis, the chaos snake, down. Now Apophis is threatening to plunge the world into eternal darkness, and the Kanes are faced with the impossible task of having to destroy him once and for all. Unfortunately, the magicians of the House of Life are on the brink of civil war, the gods are divided, and the young initiates of Brooklyn House stand almost alone against the forces of chaos. The Kanes' only hope is an ancient spell that might turn the serpent's own shadow into a weapon, but the magic has been lost for a millennia. To find the answer they need, the Kanes must rely on the murderous ghost of a powerful magician who might be able to lead them to the serpent's shadow . . . or might lead them to their deaths in the depths of the underworld. Nothing less than the mortal world is at stake when the Kane family fulfills its destiny in this thrilling conclusion to the Kane Chronicles. This non-stop thrill ride is adapted and brought to life by Orpheus Collar, who previously adapted and illustrated the rest of the Kane Chronicles series: Red Pyramid, The Graphic Novel; and Throne of Fire, The Graphic Novel.

    This graphic novel was a quick and entertaining read! Naturally, this would feel rushed compared to the original novel. I did appreciate the scenes included and the artwork was amazing! My only complaint is the font. Not sure if it's only because I was reading an ebook version of this, but the font of the text felt smaller than usual.

    The art style was so good in this volume. The action scene are so well done and overall I really liked the Visualization of the story, although this volume was so much darker and kinda creepier than the first two graphic novels.

    The book was much better than I expected. After a couple of pages, I was ready to throw this book out of the window, but it improvised. It probably didn't want me to rip it apart. Probably. The book was exactly like what Rick would write for a rough summary of the book. I'll just give a couple of pros and cons. Cons: 1. Anubis looked evil. Walt looked 50. Professor Thoth DID NOT look like what I imagined( a guy in his 20's with sand and pepper hair and a smile) 2. Sometimes, the descriptions were a The book was much better than I expected.

Professor Thoth DID NOT look like what I imagined( a guy in his 20's with sand and pepper hair and a smile) 2. Sometimes, the descriptions were a little too elaborate(read:disgusting)for me to contemplate) 3. That scene where Walt swoops in and catches the knife from hitting Sadie(The scene I was eager for) Was a huge disappointment(Hey,what's new?) 4. I DID NOT imagine Amos as some big beefy guy with weird goggles. Amos to me seemed more slick, thin and fashionable with his suits and all. Pros: 1. Sadie looked fine 2.(This is not a pro just a reference) That guy, face of horror, looked like Red Skull from Captain America XD 3. The drawing became better at the end of the book. 4. I am out of pros. Well, I do NOT want to read the graphic novel for the second book(gee, I don't know why) But I will move on to Demigod and Magicians, then the Kane survival guide and then Magnus Chase and then KOTLC then, well this will go on forever but bye for now!

    I love these kids . . . I was laughing hysterically by page four (Khufu!). Spectacular artwork from Orpheus Collar, as expected, and I am just stunned by how gorgeous Sadie, Zia, Bast, Anubis (damn, boy), and Isis - well, everyone - is. Absolutely gorgeous. I love this series just as much as the PJO titles (disagree if you must) and seeing it as a graphic novel so brilliantly crafted is an absolute joy. Appearances by my favorite crocs, Philip and Sobek, didn't hurt. I love these kids . . . I was laughing hysterically by page four (Khufu!).

    Just as good as the rest! I don't want to repeat myself but: This is too good!!! <3 I have loved this third one since I first read it but I can't name the best out of three. One thing I was very very upset about when I read the book was the Walt/Anubis merge. I was honestly yelling like: come on! But now, well it wasn't as annoying as I remembered. I couldn't be happier about the end. One more thing: Walnubis xD I couldn't stop laughing!! Just as good as the rest!

    This was the best one of the series by far! It kicked off quickly and just kept going! Awesome illustrations and it was just perfect! I kind of want more! I will have to start the Magnus Chase or Trials of Apollo books soon 😆

    So well illustrated and told. I think that the imagery and storyline works so well for a graphic novel since there are so many visual aspect of the magic, hierolygphs and so on. I imagined the characters to look a lot different, especially Anubis.

    3.5 stars Really well adapted from the book. It was very action pack and interesting. The portrayal of the story plot were okay. I'm so glad in a way I got to finish this series. The Egyptian mythology is very on point. Rick Riordan is the king in adapting mythology to the understanding of children. I enjoyed the final battle and the happy ending. Overall, a good read and would definitely recommend reading the novels. 3.5 stars Really well adapted from the book. It was very action pack and interesting.

The difference between the Novel and GN Adaptation is some part of Plot can’t be Absolute 100% on This And sometime, if moment uncut, can be disappointing, and little different. The Artwork is breaktaking And Much Better Than the 2nd, And Color is Visually Spectacular On Highlight. It is so Magnificently Great Shine of Illistration about Everything: Gods, Monsters, And Others of Egypt Myth, Settings And Landscape, Characters And More. Collar really know how to see the Vision of Riordan’s Mythological Worlds! That’s the Promise One. I got to be Honest, the Illustration with Colors are Very Beautiful as the Far Better. Much Like the Previous, Adventure Bring The Journey To the End, Characters were Great, Humor Are Still Goof, and Romance were a little touch and heartwarming. The Action Are Explosive Awesome And Non-Stop Fireworks Around Every Moments with a Bunch of Spellbounding. Moments such as Battle is incredibly Outstanding on Action Sequences. Minor Battles on 1st and 2nd Act can be quite Thrill And Terrifying, Then the Final Battle of The Three Pyramids In Giza was astonishing Breathtaking beautiful that I never imagine like this after I read the Original Novel that really Hard to follow what in my mind that felt Rush What Protagonist’s 1st POV to describe. The Epilogue were Very Well Deserve To End But Some Scene Were Cut Including Mother Speak To Sadie about the Escape of Setne and ‘Another Gods And Rival Magic’. I just Hope that either Collar or Robert Venditti or Both To GN Adapt The Epic Crossover Short Stories of Demigods & Magicians. I would love if they would do That. Don’t You Think? This been Wrap Up To Complete the GN Trilogy To become the Far the Best Adaptation Ever of Riordan’s Novels. 190 pages in every Super Highlight Color, Characters’s Facial Expression And Emotion, And Bring The World of Egypt Back to Life was extremely Knowledge, Well just a Fiction. It is sad that only 3, but if been better like 4 (Semi-Final) And 5 (Final) would exist by the Storyteller of the Gods. But it is Best Way To End. P.S.- Collar deserves the Awards of the Best Writer And Artist of the Graphic Novel And Comic Book.

    For the legions of Rick Riordan fans, here is the last installment of The Kane Chronicles, in graphic novel form. The myriad characters, bad guys and good guys, and the non-stop action, are actually made a bit easier to follow in this adaptation. Apophis, the snake of Chaos, is thrillingly dastardly, and it takes all of the magical skills of Carter and Sadie and their initiates to fight back. Lots of deep reds and blues keep the mood scary in this thriller featuring kids of many skin colors unit For the legions of Rick Riordan fans, here is the last installment of The Kane Chronicles, in graphic novel form.

I like that the humor is still present despite the overarching evil.

    I think this book is actually better than the second graphic novel in the Kane Chronicles series. I liked this book a lot because of all the ancient mythology put into modern style writing, it's freaking awesome! Plus, you're reading the book from the mind of teenager, which is relatable to me, being that I am one. One of coolest parts is when Carter gets crowned pharaoh. Not only did he get Ra's crook and flail, but he now has the power to summon a huge combat avatar.

    Good adaptation of the novel by Rick Riordan, but there are some disjointed parts so it really helps if you've read the novel first. interesting quotes: "Cows with freaking laser beams? Completely unfair!" (p. 76 - unpaged) "Untie me and I'll show you. You won't regret it." (p. 102- unpaged) "First tip on fighting a giant Chaos serpent: don't. Even with a squadron of gods and magicians at your back, it's not a battle you're likely to win."

    I loved this graphic novel. The story was in pieces and they all came together in a fun way. The battle at the end was exciting and believable. Believable for a story about kids who control magic and host Egyptian gods in their bodies. The magic followed files and they were able to solve the problem with their wits as well. The Kane’s are impressive characters. I’m sad their story was only three, but it might be better than dragging out and not having the story be as good.

    Love it. I just finished this book again. There are many series in the Percy Jackson series in this order. Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Kane Chronicles, Heroes of Olympus, Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard, Trials of Apollo. The Trials of Apollo and Magnus Chase and the Gods of Asgard happen at the same time so you need to read them at the same time. But The Trials of Apollo is longer it and is still going on. There are also add ons to each series.

Not sure how I feel about Sadie having two bfs in one. Chaos was vanquished, a villain escaped, rebels and House of Life and gods all unite. Bes came back and the world was saved and the gods returned to the skies, with Ra much improved. Didn't like demon land very much but it was all tied up nicely and the kids are still inviting us to join them in Brooklyn haha I liked the 1st two books more but....it wasnt bad.

    Yes, it's pretty predictable, yes, it's fairly short, and yes, the graphic's aren't breathtaking, but this story is fun. It has all kinds of interesting ideas, characters, and relationships. I'd say if you're a fan of Rick Riordan or this series, you should pick it up. But if you're going to read this instead of the novel, I'd rethink your decision.

    Honestly have to say I didn't really understand all that happened in this story. I also think some of this didn't belong - almost like puns. It was well illustrated and that helped figure out the characters and keep track of their rolls in the story. Not bad but I might need to follow up on this one to really get understanding of it.

    The other two graphic novels in this series are great, small changes in the story are acceptable due to the medium. However, entire plot points were changed or dropped in this last book changing the story significantly. This included Carters ending which in the book recalled an earlier promise Carter had made.

    This is the final book in the graphic novel trilogy. When I started this book I'd forgotten what actually happened in the novel, bus things started coming back to me. Quit funny at times and would have been a quick read but I've just been to busy. This is the final book in the graphic novel trilogy.

    I thought this book was great, but there were some things that were too different. Some things were cut too short or out altogether. It was still understandable, but it lost some of the magic for me. I still thought it was really good, but I think it was a little too short.
