Description

Product Description


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.

Ridley Pearson had a great idea with the first Kingdom Keepers book. Kingdom Keepers 4 continues to expand on that original great idea and ramp up the action, however it appears that much needed change is in the future for the series of books.

The Kingdom Keepers are taking a similar route as the kids from Hogwarts. Each book they are a little older, a little wiser and the stakes get a little higher. If you haven''t read the first three books, you are likely going to be completely lost.

At the beginning of the latest installment, the Disney villains (or Overtakers in the terminology of the book) are once again attacking the Kingdom Keepers. Unlike before, their reach has gone all the way to DisneyQuest and the cast of villains has expanded. Snow White''s Evil Queen, Cruella De Vil, Claude Frollo, Shan-Yu and others have picked up where Chernabog and Maleficent left off in KK3. All signs point to an attempted jailbreak for the captured monsters.

The Evil Queen is particularly dangerous however since she has the ability to put actual humans under spells, including several of the Kingdom Keepers. The Keepers are unable to trust even each other. Meanwhile, the Overtakers are putting motion a plan that will capture the Keepers in their DHI state as well as break out their leaders.

Joining the cast this time are some of the good Disney Characters. The first KK alluded to this by seeing Chip, Dale and Winnie the Pooh, but we haven''t seen much from them since.

The action is continually ramping up in Power Play between a daredevil escape from Claude Frollo, a swordfight on Malestrom, a battle on Tom Sawyer Island and other scenes of action. Somehow, Pearson has never been able to recapture the honest terror of the Small World or Big Thunder scenes from KK1.

But regardless, this is a quick and fun read. The Keepers'' personalities are starting to show more and the teenage love triangles are getting complicated. The next books will leave the Florida area and head to the cruise before spending the last two books at Disneyland California.

I think Pearson realized that to a certain extent, books two and three tread water a bit at the Disney parks and that it is time for a final battle between the Overtakers and the Keepers and for the plan to be more than jailbreaks and killing the Keepers. This book thankfully takes the time to set up the rest of the series nicely and shows the battle lines being drawn.

This is an excellent series for most ages and I look forward to next year when we see KK5 hit the shelves.

I love this book because it takes place in Disney World, and Disney World is my Happy Place. Kingdom Keepers is a series of six books that so far takes place in the different Disney World parks. The author, Ridley Pearson, writes about seven 14 year old teens who fight Disney Villains at night in the Disney parks. These Villains are trying to take over Disney World, and the teens have to stop them. As far as their parents know, the teens are just asleep in their beds at night. However, even though it looks like they are sleeping, the teens actually crossover in their dreams and find themselves fighting the Villains.

In Book 4, these seven teens are fighting Cruella De Vil and The Evil Queen in the main control center of Disney World, The Cell Tower, along with Maleficent and Chernabog in the Disney parks. The teens travel from park to park most nights fighting these Villains. They are also fighting to free their Leader and friend, Wayne. Wayne was captured by the Villains in Book 3.

I thought the author, Ridley Pearson, did an amazing job on this book with his descriptive details. I was able to visualize in my head what he was writing about when describing the teens, the Villains, the Disney parks, and so on. To me, the book was a little hard to follow because the author would flip from one place to another. For example, one minute he would be talking about the teens being in school, and then the next minute the teens would be in the parks fighting the Villains. Even though the book was hard to follow, I still enjoyed reading it and plan on reading the rest of the series.

Ever since the leaders of the Overtakers have been captures, life for the Kingdom Keepers has been quiet. But all that changes when they are visiting Disney Quest and see Snow White''s Evil Queen and Cruella de Vil. The two villains are definitely up to something, and a video sent to Philby confirms it. Meanwhile, Charlene is acting strangely and some kids at their schools suddenly have green eyes. Can the Kingdom Keepers figure out what the villains are planning in time to stop it?

As I was starting this book, I was thinking how formulaic these books are. And then the author started doing some interesting things that definitely pushed the boundries of the formula. He brought in some new villains to fight and even introduced some non-Overtaker characters.

The plot moves forward at a quick pace as always, and any time I picked up the book I had a hard time setting it down. The pages flew by, and things are concluded by the end, something I didn''t see how he was going to do 40 pages out.

Once again, the characters are sacrificed to the plot. Even after four books, I don''t feel that attached to any of them. I care enough to worry about the outcome of the story, but that might also be because I already know the villains to root against them.

Character issues aside, those who love Disney and thrill rides will enjoy this book no matter whether they are in the target age group of not.

This wasn''t the most intense installment of the Kingdom Keepers series, but it provided excellent set up for what''s in store in the next book(s). It didn''t have the same driving ''quest'' feel to it as the previous three books. And the activities in the Parks were mild at best. However, the character development vastly improved. We''re watching Finn and all the Keepers grow up and their interactions with each other are unfolding beautifully.

Because I was not on the edge of my seat reading this, as I was with the previous books, I could only award 3 stars. However, I do believe that this book is a stepping stone that must be read in order to fully understand the development of the series overall. I am really looking forward to future installments and, based on the upcoming plotline and setting that was hinted at in the concluding pages, I feel like the next book will be explosive!

I have fallen in love with the Kingdom Keepers books. They are my kids'' books but I have taken them over. I enjoyed this book tremendously. It does keep you riveted as the story twists and turns on the Disney Cruise Lines. Ok - so it would be a bit improbable that some of the characters can actually find a way to stowaway on the ship. Not necessarily very realistic - however, you have to remember this is fiction/fantasy & these folks are supported by Villains or Imagineers. They can do pretty much almost anything. I am still eager to see what happens to these 5 to 7 Kingdom Keepers. They are a bit fickle & fleeting in their emotional attachments but these kids are teenagers. I find that behavior pretty accurate. Read these books. You won''t be sorry & you''ll want to read Book V to continue your cruise.

Probably the best book in the series so far. Chapters are spaced out longer, more occurs storywise than the previous books, and the ending finally leaves you with a sense of excitement for the next book.

Have not been able to put this series down. Bought them all at once after my daughter had seen commercial for the newest release on Disney channel. The Keepers are funny, you actually learn tidbits about the characters, films, and parks, cruise line, you may not have known. The Villains are far more dangerous than you would think given they are from animated cartoons and are restricted by the animators. Being alive has really proved their nastiness. Can I just say that Chernabog takes the cake for being really bad. If you need to get away from all the Disney history and true-life books about Disney, this is a perfect getaway.
