The final installment of the Kingdom Keepers series opens with Tia Dalma, the formidable voodoopracticing witch, winding her way through the Devil's Labyrinth, a rat-infested underground chamber in which she has been imprisoned. She escapes, liberates the beast Chernabog, and transports him to Anaheim in hopes of destroying Disneyland and the "good magic" within it. The five teenagers who have been charged with protecting the park are ready for the pair and battle against them, as well as many other villains of familiar Disney films. The action in scenes occasionally falls flat, and readers accustomed to strong female protagonists may feel dismayed by the sometimes stereotypical depictions of girls. Nevertheless, descriptions of the antagonists are notably rich and evocative, and this will appeal to established fans of the series, who will welcome the conclusion enthusiastically and no doubt appreciate the unbridled adventure they have come to expect from this author. - Julie Hanson Booklist Online"

These books do require a bit of open imagination because things happen here that just don't happen in the real world. Or do they? You have to suspend reality and believe that real magic exists within the Disney Parks. Audioanimatronic Characters can come to life. The Villains are out to destroy the good magic of Disney to there won evil ambitions. With villains like Maleficent, The Evil Queen, Cruella De Ville and Chernabog involved our teenaged heroes are in for the battle of their lives. See this is where you have to suspend your thinking and just go with it. The Kingdom Keepers that were hired by Disney Imagineers for a new project that would provide holographic projection of these 5 kids into the Parks as guides for the guests. The only problem for the kids involved is that once the program goes into operation, they can never enter the Parks again. But of course once everything goes wrong, they have to enter to solve the crisis. There is a lot to these books that is pure fun and lots of action with fear for them. It's and entertaining look at behind the scenes and adventure and a little romance along the way.Read more ›
This is about teen-agers who can transport into the parks at night....when the characters come to life, and the villains try to take over. I think it may been been targeted for teen-agers...but as an adult...I loved it too.
Then the attack comes. The five friends are quickly crossed over to battle a group of Overtakers trying to break into the achieves - a group lead my Wayne. Wait, what? But the real threat is coming toward Disneyland. Will the group be able to stop the Overtakers once and for all?
I have felt this series has been uneven (in fact the last book was the weakest), but I am glad to say I found this one to be much better. Yes, it did feel a bit too long at times, but for the most part, the plot moved forward at a steady pace. It was nice to see the characters acting as friends more than they have in the past books. I even found myself tearing up a few times as the book progressed.
I've always wondered why we didn't see more of the good characters in this series, and I was pleased that more of them appeared in this book. That was a nice touch that I hope continues in the follow up series.
For now, fans who have followed these characters through six previous books will be glad to know how the initial struggle against the Overtakers ends.

As the series progresses, I felt the story lines started to get rather contrived, and some of the character interaction repetitive and tired. Still, it wasn't a bad read.Published 3 months ago by AMH
