Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 5-8–In Ridley Pearson's third installment (Hyperion, 2010) of the Kingdom Keepers saga, the five teenage Disney hologram guides (DHIs) are once again transported at night into Disney World to solve a crime. When the Disney Imagineers originally developed the holograms out of real teenagers, they didn't know Finn, Philby, Willa, Charlene, and Maybeck would be able to cross over into the park when they went to sleep at night. During the day, the park offers its world-famous adventures, but at night it's plagued with evil doers. The DHIs discover that their mentor and head Imagineer, Wayne, is being held hostage somewhere in the park. A close friend's dream points them to the Hollywood Studios and Epcot, but a lost remote, used for getting them out of the park, takes away their ability to return to their sleeping bodies and traps them as holograms. They enter the rides hoping to discover clues along the way, but danger awaits them at every turn. The villains are deliciously evil, making their ultimate defeat all the more urgent. This volume can stand along, but the story line begins with events in the first two books. MacLeod Andrews gives the characters distinct voices and conveys the thrill of the chase. The behind-the-scenes interaction with Disney World makes these stories unique.–Robyn Gioia, Bolles School, Ponte Vedra, FLα(c) Copyright 2010.

Praise for

The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark:

“The adventure makes cunning use of Disney’s mythos.”—

Kirkus Reviews

“The illicit thrill of seeing all the things you don’t normally get to see (both real and

imaginary) makes this a must-read for serious Disney fans.”—

School Library Journal

“This is a read-with-the-flashlight-under-the-blankets-until-two-in-the-morning kind

of book, taking familiar scenes and places and turning them upside down.”

Washington Post

Kingdom Keepers is an excellent book for kids and adults. It helps you imagine yourself in the Walt Disney World Resort getting involved in the story. Fabulous plots and the kids love to read them. Can't wait for the next edition.

Though not as good as his past books in the series, this was still an interesting read. I felt like the story dragged on a little bit too much, a little more action and a little less talking would have been ideal, as what action happens isn't very much. I also felt like they didn't go into as much detail about the parks as in the past books and that left me wanting to know more about the parks. That's why I mainly read the books is so that I feel like I'm at the parks. So again still a good read but not as great as it has been in the past

My daughter loves these books. They are a must have if your child reads books and especially if they have been to Disney. She's constantly telling me stories about these books in relation to rides or attractions we've been to at Disney.

I am an adult who happens to really love Disney World, which is why I originally picked up this series. From the get-go, I was very unimpressed as it was clear that Ridley Pearson doesn't have a great grasp of Disney World (in all three books so far he makes multiple factual errors that are well-documented in other reviews). Regardless, I would pick up one of these books on the last night of every Disney trip - you, know, that sad time where you're desperate to hang on to that wonderful Disney feeling? That desperation is to be blamed for me purchasing these clunkers. I'm can't help it; I'm a Disney addict.
Disney in Shadow is the worst of the books thus far. It is SO dull. In the first half of the book, much of the action takes place away from the parks. Who wants to read about Maybeck's aunt's pottery store? Not I.
The plot is pretty thin - four hundred and some pages of Finn and company trying to find Wayne? Way too much. I had to force myself to finish this one. And I have to say, at no time did I actually care whether they found Wayne or not. So many details about the whole concept are shady, including the rather important question of the Overtakers' end game. We know they want to take over the parks, but to what end? So that they can have the parks all to themselves? But that doesn't make any sense. Who would actually operate the parks and keep them running if they were overtaken? Three books in, and I'm not even sure what this group of annoying, stereotypical kids is working so hard for.
Despite all the factual problems and vagueness of plot, my biggest gripe is with the writing itself. I can practically SEE Ridley Pearson at his desk, thinking "now what catch-phrase can I give these characters to make it seem like they're actually young and cool?

In my opinion, Kingdom Keepers keeps getting better. The characters continue to become more developed, the references to Disney buzz words are a great tie in, and my daughter keeps wanting to read the next book...what's not to like?

I recommend this to adults and children..especially those who have an interest in all things Disney. One tip is that I would NOT try to pick up in the middle of the series. Start with book ONE.

The Kingdom Keepers books were written for Disney Geeks like me. (Or as actor Zachary Levi has dubbed us, Disnerds.) Through fiction and author Ridley Pearson's imagination, we get to see what would happen if the villains began to take over the parks in Disney World. Our heroes on the journey are five kids who cross over to the parks as semi-holograms when the parks have closed down. Kingdom Keepers III: Disney in Shadow picks up from the second in the series and is another wild ride.

It's been a couple of weeks since the Kingdom Keepers had their wild adventure in Animal Kingdom, and Wayne, the elderly Imagineer who gave them the ability to cross over to the parks, is still missing. They know he was kidnapped by the Overtakers, the group of villains out to take over the parks. And their only leads make them think that Wayne is being held in EPCOT. As usual, Wayne has left them some strange clues, but can they figure out what they mean?

Meanwhile, the group has grown from five to seven when they add Amanda and Jess, two teens with some pretty usual powers, to their group. Jess seems to dream the future. Will that help? And will they survive some pretty harrowing experiences on Disney attractions to find Wayne?

The second book in the series was a bit of a letdown, and I'm still not sure if it was the introduction of some new mythology with little to no explanation or the setting of Animal Kingdom, my least favorite of the theme parks. This book brought the magic back. The 545 pages practically flew by as I raced to find out what would happen next. No, not every scene was a nail biting edge of your seat ride, but there were plenty of those. Trust me, I never put the book down by choice.

This review is from my 10 year old granddaughter. The book keeps up the excitement of the previous two Kingdom Keeper books. It keeps you engrossed in the Disney feel of the stories while bringing in a great mystery. Highly recommended.
