Overview

For the five teens who modeled as Disney Hologram Imaging hosts, life is beginning to settle down when an intriguing video arrives to Philby's computer at school. It's a call for action: the Overtakers, a group of Disney villains, seem to be plotting to attempt a rescue of two of their leaders, both of whom the Disney Imagineers have hidden away somewhere following a violent encounter in Epcot. A staged attack by new Overtakers at Downtown Disney, startles the group.

One of their own, Charlene, is acting strange of late. Has she tired of her role as a Kingdom Keeper or is there something more sinister at play? When caught sneaking into Epcot as her DHI, acting strictly against the group's rules, Finn and Philby take action.

Has the "impossible" occurred? Have the Overtakers created their own holograms? Have they found a way to "jump" from the Virtual Maintenance Network onto the Internet, and if so, what does that mean for the safety of the parks, and the spread and reach of the Overtakers? Are they recruiting an army from outside the parks?

A dark cloud in the Kingdom Keeper era is unfolding, and with dissention in their own ranks, it's unclear if there's any chance of escape.

My son is functioning autistic. As much as I tried he never ever like to read books until the Kingdom Keepers came along. Jon, my son, loves all things Disney especially anything to do with Disneyworld. When he began to read these wonderful books its as if he has discovered the world of reading for the first time. He has read every one of the series and is very patiently waiting for next month when the fourth book arrives in his hands. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Mr. Pearson for giving the gift of loving reading to my son.

These books r a personal fave of mine bc my cousins work at floridas disney amgic kingdom and i LUV disney soooo much. These boks are basicaly bout these teens that r trying to help the disney imagineers save disney from the over takers a.k.a. all the disney villians. In the first book they became disney host holograms to help guide ppl throught the magic kingdom. They r picked by a old guy named wayne and learn their duty of saving the parks. Bc of the holograms when they sleep they turn into part hologram and human. They wake up in the magic kingdom and return with a black fob. Malificent is the ring leader of ALL the over takers. In this book malificent anf chernabog r in a jail and wot the help of cruela and the evil queen they break out with a very carefully planned.... plan. The kingdom keeper books in order: Kingdom keepers Kingdom keepers 2: disney at dawn Kingdom keepers 3:disney at dusk Kingdom keepers 4:power play

The Kingdom Keepers books are amazing, they have a great story, but many fans of Disney who know of the characters mentioned in these books will find mistakes, and being a Disney fan, that bugs me. Even so, if you have a great imagination, it's not hard to be able to pictiure the events taking place at the Disney parks. Overall a great read!

I have read every other kingdom keepers book and i cant wait for this one to come out. With the cliff hanger at the end of the third book the fourth is sure to be more intense. Ridley Pearson has done an amazing job with the detail and story line that goes into these books. If your looking for a way disney can be intese pick up the first book and read on through to the fourth. This should not disappoint!

I see these books as amazing stories of what walt wanted for the characters. He wanted them to be free to roam thier home because they are gonna be there forever. He wanted them to be comfortable. So to I LIKE THESE BOOKS BUT... you really shouldn't be bad mouthing these books as ads.

I love all of the Kingdom Keepers books. (Im suprised I put it down to write this.) They are absolutley amazing! I would definitely recommend these books to Disney lovers and action/suspense lovers. But more Disney lovers because you would get the location of whats happining where. But thats just my opinion. Overall, I LOVE THESE BOOKS!!!!! <3
