EVER since the gods of Ancient Egypt were unleashed on the modern
world, Carter Kane and his sister, Sadie, have been in big trouble.
As descendants of the magical House of Life, they command certain
powers. But now a terrifying enemy - Apophis, the giant snake of
chaos - is rising. If Carter and Sadie don't destroy him, the world
will end in five days' time. And in order to battle the forces of
chaos, they must revive the sun god Ra - a feat no magician has
ever achieved. Because first they must search the world for the
three sections of the Book of Ra, then they have to learn how to
chant its spells . . . Can the Kanes destroy Apophis before he
swallows the sun and plunges the earth into darkness . . . forever?
