Is there anything you would change about this book?
This series has always been a little hard to listen to, because it changes from character to character very often. I had to skip back and re-listen to understand what was going on. I assume in the books there is a gap between paragraphs or something to indicate changing scenes. Maybe future audio versions could have sounds of some kind as indicators.
What was most disappointing about Ridley Pearson’s story?
This was the most poorly written book in the series. I felt like it was a failure as a novel. ****POSSIBLE MILD SPOILER ALERT**** I am not always opposed to cliffhangers but the end of this book was ridiculous. There were way too many loose ends. The book posed millions of questions but no answers. All the other installments have left us with some plot resolution, even though we know there's a lot more to be done. This story didn't. It was like he just ended. Like, "Well, time's up better get this to the publisher. I'll just give him what I've got" The story was full of distrust and teenage pigheadedness. The relationships so intricately built between the Keepers in the first four books broke down completely. They stopped being able to communicate. The whole team spirit they built is gone. Overall, it was a failure because there was no character growth. The characters did not evolve or change, they were stagnant. It was really disappointing. Pearson can do so much better. We know that, as evidenced by the first four books. Shame on the editor for not pressing for a re-write.
What aspect of MacLeod Andrews’s performance would you have changed?
Some voices seemed off but mostly he did well. Just wish the scene/character changes could be indicated, instead of smooshed together.
Was Kingdom Keepers V worth the listening time?
I suppose. There was as much action as ever. But don't expect the characters to develop. They are static.

I like how they added more than just Disney World and added The Cruise.
I would recommend it to Disney lovers like me.
I chose the rating because I liked the way the guy spoke for all the characters and made me feel like I was in the story!!!
