A modern fairy tale from Leonard Kinsey, bestselling author of The Dark Side of Disney.
Man-child Blaine McKinnon is brilliant, wealthy, and completely alone. After an emotional breakdown, Blaine starts a new life at the only place he was ever truly happy: Walt Disney World. But he soon finds that just below the surface of his childhood paradise lies a kingdom corrupted by drugs, violence, and deceit.
For the first time, Kinsey brings his fresh writing style to the world of fiction, with astounding results. Our Kingdom of Dust deftly combines and insightful and riveting tale with the humor and irreverence that made The Dark Side of Disney an international bestseller.

A nice short listen.
A unique novel set at the theme parks.
It is in the top 25%. Mainly because the setting is so relevant to me as a theme park junkie.
You can't compare this book to the Dark Side of Disney. One is a travelogue (so to speak) and this is fiction.
There is a reason she is called "Snow" White and it ain't her purity.
Kinsey uses his breadth of Disney theme park knowledge and did something unique by setting a modern day adult fairy tale at a place that has so much meaning to so many of us. He mostly succeeded. There were times in the book where I wanted some more back story. In my opinion, the best part of the book was the beginning and the end. Very powerful on both fronts.
