Disney after Dark
Disney after Dark - Ridley Pearson,David Frankland The Kingdom Keepers is a sorry excuse for a novel. This novel was so bad that it offended me, and I am offended by very little. It’s really not a novel but a pathetic advertisement for the Walt Disney Company. I can’t even count how many times the author broke off from the story to give a soliloquy about the greatness of Disney, or going in depth about this product or that product of theirs. I can only assume that the company paid this writer to write this series of novels. In this story, a group of teens have to go into the Magic Kingdom and fight off the evil Disney characters. Some of the characters in the novel attack the heroes while others help fight off the baddies. It’s so bad, it’s not even worth going into the plot. Suffice it to say, save yourself from having to read this book. It’s simply not worth it.

Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark
Disney After Dark (The Kingdom Keepers, #1) - Ridley Pearson This book is especially good to read if you are about to make a trip to a Disney park. I read it before my second trip Disney, so I knew the area of most of the attractions that are spoken of which makes that much more fun as well. Now this book is not really one of those deep thinkers. It is purely action and adventure. It is simply written and this the first book in the series. The second book Kingdom Keepers II: Disney at Dawn just recently came out. Finn and friends are enjoyable to read about because in a way they are just there enjoying the rides along with you, even though they may be in danger. I highly recommend this book for both boys and girls.

Sadly, there were no severed heads...or glowsticks
Disney after Dark - Ridley Pearson,David Frankland




Soo...I guess if we're gonna bump into each other tonight in our dreams, we might want to decide when we're all going to sleep. Everyone has a 9 p.m. bedtime, right? Wait, what? You get to stay up til 10? No fair! 


While I was reading Disney After Dark, I kept comparing it in my head to a starter version of Ready Player One. Unfortunately, I kept wishing for this book to become as epic as RPO and it never quite got there.

Disney after Dark
Disney after Dark - Ridley Pearson This book did not live up to my expectations at all! The cover blurb sounded so good, and yet it took me forever to get into it. The first 30-45% of the book really drags and that detracts from the story. As readers, we are expected to suspend disbelief in order to get into and enjoy the story, yet the author has his characters fighting with disbelief for most of the book. It is this conflict that doesn't allow the story to progress at a decent pace. Most of the reviews over at Amazon.com say that this series is better than [a:Jeff Dixon|3440085|Jeff Dixon|http://d202m5krfqbpi5.cloudfront.net/authors/1305841692p2/3440085.jpg]'s [b:The Key to the Kingdom|8004231|The Key to the Kingdom|Jeff Dixon|/assets/nocover/60x80.png|11200663], but having read this, I have to question that. There are too many unanswered questions at the end, even for a start of the series book, and while that may serve as a hook for younger readers to continue with the series, older readers might get more frustrated with it. While I recommended this to my 11 year old before I read it, I will not be encouraging her to read it anytime soon and definitely would not recommend it to my 4 year old when he gets older!
