Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Disappointed"
    What disappointed you about The Kingdom Keepers?

    Sketchey story with a unbelievable ending....even for magic. Story was all over the place, and written for 1st graders, not for teenagers. Just really, really bad. The charters didn't even meet up to the real ones. Hard to fallow and does not keep attention.

    "Looks like this one's going to be a great series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Kingdom Keepers to be better than the print version?

    I think I'll just stick with the audio because braille, my version of print, is crazy expensive. So yes, I'd say it's much better.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kingdom Keepers?

    Learning who the Overtakers were. They were exactly who I'd hoped they'd be, btw.


    Which character – as performed by Gary Littman – was your favorite?

    Main protagonist's creepy and very familiar sounding teacher. Not quite finished with the first book, but I have my suspicions about this guy. The narrator sounds like Jonathan Freeman when he does this guy's voice, so that's all I know for now.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    They may have all failed going solo, but this time, their joining forces.


    Any additional comments?

    Brilliance Audio never disappoints. I haven't stumbled across the first book in a series that's captivated me this much since Harry Potter book 1 some years ago. You hit the ground running from page one, so to speak, and it's one massively exciting onslaught of familiar Disney heroes and villains from start to finish. I'm glad I've got 6 credits left because I know where they're going. Thanks for making the entire series available, Audible. I've never gotten to visit Disney World, so this is the next best thing. The author really did his homework. Now Audible, you guys should make some sort of deal with Disney and get Audible Frontiers to do the Pirates of The Caribbean: Jack Sparrow and Legends of The Brethren Court series.

    "Fantastic family fun"
    What aspect of Gary Littman’s performance would you have changed?

    At times the vocals were too quiet which made it hard for my daughter riding in the backseat to hear over the vehicle noise.

    "New to Kingdom Keepers"
    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    The ending left open questions. I guess the author was expecting this to be a series


    Any additional comments?

    I started reading this because my wife and boys liked the print version. It is definitely light listening. Don't expect the details to match the Disney parks exactly. In the same way that the technology is fictional, the author also takes liberties with the location.

    This book was great! It's definately a book I can have both my children listen to as well which is really important. They love audiobooks. It made me think about Disney World in a new light which is one of my favorite places to go on vacation. I can't wait to listen to the second book!

    "Excellent New Series"
    What made the experience of listening to The Kingdom Keepers the most enjoyable?

    It is an interesting story because it is about a place the readers may have been and can see in their minds. It was well read with good voices.


    What other book might you compare The Kingdom Keepers to and why?

    It was a different type of book to others I have read.


    Any additional comments?

    I already got the second book in the series and liked it too. I am waiting on the third one now.

    "Okay Story, Poor Preformance"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I think children about 10ish would like this book more, or anyone who really likes Disney.


    Would you recommend The Kingdom Keepers to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book, but not this performance. It's an okay book,and there aren't any major problems with the writing.


    What didn’t you like about Gary Littman’s performance?

    The voices of many of the characters are really annoying. Amanda's voice is fine, but pretty much all of the other kids sound annoying, especially Dillard (I think that's his name.) Dillard sounds like he has a lisp, is always congested, and I think I could do a better job, and I'm female. Also, Aunt Jelly has the most stereotypical "old black lady" voice I've heard in a while.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The book was fine. I got what I paid for. It was very Disney. I recognized the rides they were talking about, which was cool.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope. The book is pretty decent, but I don't really like this performance. The voices are pretty bad, the wrong words are emphasized, and a lot of sentences sound like questions.

    "A nice story for everyone...A must for Disney fans"

    I'm a fan of Walt Disney and try to plan a trip there at least every year or two. This is a great story for any young adult (or old ones too) who like adventure. I thoroughly enjoyed the descriptions of the WDW attractions and the behind the scenes areas, even if some of them don't exist outside the story...as far as I know anyway... I'm definitely looking forward to the rest of the series.
