Waiting on Wednesday (80)

"Waiting on" Wednesday is a weekly meme to discuss upcoming books we can't wait to get our hands on. Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine. 

This week, I'm waiting on:

The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan
Publication date: May 1, 2012

Description from Goodreads:

He's b-a-a-ack! Despite their best efforts, Carter and Sade 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. 

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...

I love this series! It is so much fun (and I learn something about Egyptian mythology at the same time!) and I can't wait to dive into The Serpent's Shadow.

What are you waiting on this week?


  1. This sounds really good. Great pick! I haven't read any books form him yet, but I really need to.
