Book of the Week (13)

Book of the Week (13)
botw is a weekly thing I do in order to give more attention to a book/series I think deserves it.

Kingdom Keepers by Ridley Pearson
published by Disney Hypiron
Genre: mid grade
$8.99 (paperback)
336 pages

What it's about:
In this fantastical thriller, five young teens tapped as models for theme park "guides" find themselves pitted against Disney villains and witches that threaten both the future of Walt Disney World and the stability of the world outside its walls.

Using a cutting-edge technology called DHI—which stands for both Disney Host Interactive and Daylight Hologram Imaging—Finn Whitman, an Orlando teen, and four other kids are transformed into hologram projections that guide guests through the park.
The new technology turns out, however, to have unexpected effects that are both thrilling and scary. Soon Finn finds himself transported in his DHI form into the Magic Kingdom at night. Is it real? Is he dreaming?
Finn's confusion only increases when he encounters Wayne, an elderly Imagineer who tells him that the park is in grave danger. Led by the scheming witch Maleficent, a mysterious group of characters called the Overtakers is plotting to destroy Disney's beloved realm, and maybe more.
This gripping high-tech tale will thrill every kid who has ever dreamed of sneaking into Walt Disney World after hours, and wondered what happens at night, when the park is closed.

I read the first of this series while I was in Florida and finished it two days before I went to Magic Kingdom. It was great timing. This book was really fun. Who wouldn't love to run around Disney at night after the park is closed? And then to have the characters be real? That is truly amazing. Each one of these books takes place in a different Disney World park. If you like Disney, I'd read these books.
My full review should be posted soon.


  1. I love how the kids are glowing, it reminds me of the movie Xanadu... because I am super old.

  2. I just wanted to pass along the Cherry on top award you can pick it up at my blog


I love getting comments! I'm always checking to see if I have any new comments. It's actually pretty sad how often I check for them really. So if there is anything you want to say about a post of mine, please say it! I want feedback :)

As of lately, I'm making the blog a no-award blog. I love getting them and I'm always honored, but I don't have the time to do all the things that are required of them. Sorry :(
Also, my "reply" button does not seem to be working in my comments on my computer. I have to use a different computer to reply back so if I don't reply, it's not because I'm rude, it's just that I can't.
