Warning: Kane-bashing ahead!
Ugh. The Serpent's Shadow was a complete piece of #)$%#ing pulp. I had been predicting this plot twist:
since the author explained Walt's curse.
A perfect waste of my hard-earned twenty bucks -
. The Kane Chronicles were already so melodramatic "sorry for all those deaths" "we have no hope of defeating Apophis" "ohmigawsh the guy I love is going to die" "ohmigawsh I'm in love with two guys and one of them is dying and the other is a god" "ohmigawsh my dad just died" "it's my birthday and I'm running away from my crazy grandparents but I still have time to think about the fact that a guy just kissed me."
But I'm really looking forwards to The Demigod Diaries, crappy title aside.
