The Serpent's Shadow Teaser

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

*Grab your current read.
*Let the book fall open to a random page.
*Share with us “teaser” sentences from that page.
*You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

The Serpent's Shadow by Rick Riordan
May 1st 2012 by Hyperion Books for Children

"In the voice of Apophis, they spoke in unison: 'No one leaves this place alive. Good-bye, Sadie Kane.'
 Would you be surprised to learn that things went badly from there?
  I didn't think so.
  Our first casualties were Felix's penguins. The criosphinxes blew fire at the unfortuante birds, and they melted into puddles of water.
  'No!' Felix cried.
  The room rumbled, much stronger this time." (pg. 16-17)
