by Ridley Pearson
Illustrator Tristan Elwell

Disney-Hyperion | September 1, 2009 | Trade Paperback

Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Featuring a new paperback cover to match hardcover of Kingdom Keepers II:
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.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ridley Pearson + Disney's magic kingdom= a fantastic novel When I started reading this, I practically couldn't put this down. It was an absolutely amazing the way it drew me in from the moment I started reading it. Althought I haven't read any of his other books, I can easily tell that Ridley Pearson is a fantastic writer. I was stunned by how the story seemed both realistic and imaginative it was. I was also amazed at how much research on the theme park was done and how he tied in that information into the story itself. I can guarantee you that even if you are not a fan of Disney, that if you were tostart reading this you won't want to stop.
