In this sequel to The Kingdom Keepers: Disney after Dark (2005), Disney World is again in danger. The five Kingdom Keepers must battle Maleficent and the Overtakers, who threaten to capture them while they sleep, so the kids must stay awake from the beginning of the battle to its end. Can they do it, or will the urge to sleep be too intense? Lane uses perfectly timed dramatic pauses to build on the suspense-filled story. A number of characters speak with accents (British and African American), and Lane’s interpretations are authentic sounding and crisp. Upbeat music begins and ends each disc. Kids who loved the first title (also available from Brilliance) won’t be disappointed. Grades 5-8. --Anna Rich --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

All that aside, however, this is a nice second installment to an on-going series that explores the Disney mythology and provides kids (and adults) with adventure-filled stories. This one takes place mostly in the Animal Kingdom as the keepers attempt to find and rescue Jez, who has been kidnapped. They face many challenges of course, not the least of which is an alternate DHI server that threatens to capture them in Sleeping Beauty Syndrome (asleep and can't wake up) should they drift off. And this time, Maleficent is joined by the most evil Disney villain ever: Chernabog (from Fantasia). And the slight hints at leadership lessons from book one blossom a little more in this book. I won't give away any spoilers, but the story provides a resolution while still leaving plenty of plot lines in play for book three, which... I haven't read yet.
A note to parents: there is a bit of suggestiveness throughout the books - both in language (Maybeck has a mouth on him apparently) and in relationships (very mild, but it's there - you sense a love triangle in the making). And, of course, behavior you don't want your kids emulating (lying, etc.).

She said the Kindle version was much handier for reading any time (she rereads her books a *lot*).
We are a family of Walt Disney World park lovers and both my daughter and my wife said this entire series of books is really great for park lovers.
