Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

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 Audible Audio Edition edition.

Having been a Disney cast member for many years, I read Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark, and now it's sequel Kingdom Keepers II: Disney at Dawn with great interest. Both offer a fun read for kids and adults alike. With "Disney at Dawn," author Ridley Pearson has continued his story of the Kingdom Keepers, a group of school children who originally modeled for the fictional holographic Interactive Host Program at Disney's Magic Kingdom but who now find themselves the unofficial protectors of Disney. In the original story, the kids are magically transported into the Magic Kingdom at night while they're asleep. Their mission - to find out who is behind the mysterious goings on in the park after dark. Animatronic figures are roaming the parks and Disney characters have come alive, including the villians. Now, in the sequel, the kids again find themselves in the park; this time in Disney's Animal Kingdom. They must delve deeper into the mystery of the Overtakers, to find out which super villian is really in charge and what horrible scheme the villians have in mind. Fans of Disney, especially cast members past and present, will enjoy the refereneces to familiar locations and settings. Sure, there are some glaring errors (Ridley, it's Fantasmic, not the fantasmics) and some lesser errors that only cast members will appreciate (there are some interesting assumptions concerning ride operation and cast member IDs for example) but it is a work of fiction, so those mistakes offer an additional element of interest for those of us who work in the industry. I strongly recommend this series as a wonderful read for all ages. With page-turning actions, humorous dialogue, and engaging characters, it's a fun addition to any library!

I was not able to get past the first chapter so it may not be fair for me to review this book. Having just finished Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark, I eagerly bought and downloaded Disney At Dawn. However, the very first chapter describes the sisters Jez and Amanda saying, "They claim to be sisters but it must be through adoption..." and then goes on to describe how they look completely different from each other. The problem with this is at the very end of Disney After Dark, the sisters are described as twins, "They were sisters, twins perhaps, not identical, but close to it." Now it seems to me that if Ridley Pearson had written both books, he never would have made such an error. So maybe he had a ghost writer. Nothing wrong with that right? Maybe but what kind of writer doesn't research the book they are writing?! This was too much of a gross error for me to get past. It might have been a good book but unfortunately I have a feeling it was written simply as a money maker.

If you're a Disney addict and looking for a book to help "tie you over" until your next trip, get the Kingdom Keeper books!
It's really great to be able to totally visualize where the kids are when you've been there many times.

Though this book was not as good as the first in my opinion, it was still pretty interesting, especially for those of us who haven't been to the park in over 15 years. This book mainly focuses on the Animal Kingdom part of the park and also Maleficent and Chernaborg. Hardly any other characters are mentioned (Aladdin and Jasmine breifly, Ariel has about a two page part..) which that was disappointing to me as I wanted more character interaction, but was left with only the two bad guys that were talked about constantly. Though the story line still moved along rather quickly, I just kept wishing for more characters and more parts of the park. Hopefully in the next book they'll do just that.

This one was not as good as the first. I realize I am an adult reading a book for young adults but anything to do with Disney I will read. The characters and the way they act or speak is appropriate for the young adult. So I know it is the book for them. It is, however, a strong, sometimes funny, and is very believable. (hey, it could happen). But what I love most about it is the author is spot on where the parks are concerned. Every thing is in its place as it should be as he goes about the plot. So, if your child reads these books be sure that if you end up at Disney you can follow the book in each park and know that the Kingdom Keepers are taking care of business.

Great sequel to the first book, cannot wait to read book 3! It's a great read for any kid that enjoys Disney, adventure, good trumping evil! There are nice twists to the plot! Reading level 4/5th grade depending on your reader. My son is going into 4th grade and is just starting this series.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on book II after reading the first book. New adventures for the crew and will they be able to thwart the green witch again--Maleficent? Where is there helper? This is such a fun read especially for anyone of any age that loves Disney--be sure to read book I first. The characters are so fun you want them to be your friends!!

This is a sequel to the first Kingdom Keeper book and it was, as I understand, a few years later. It was also something of a disappointment... or the one where Pearson got a little lazy. Not that I want to pick apart a kid's book, but there are a handful (or two) of inconsistencies that raise flags and take the reader out of this adventure. Many are minor, like confusing which character did what and whether or not clues would mean anything to characters who weren't privy to certain conversations. There are some logistic issues, such as whether the keepers are banned from all the theme parks or if their agreement as DHIs was limited to the Magic Kingdom. And there's a question of how they manage to keep in contact using their Nintendo DS systems for chat and maybe audio? However, the first and most persistent concern was the name of a main character. Is she Jess or Jez? (If you've read the 1st book, that makes more sense.)

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.
