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.

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.

Awful narration

The narration of this book was so bad that we considered not even listening. The voices he switched back and forth between were so fake and over the top. It was almost painful to listen to. If there weren't more books in the series we probably would have stopped listening. I have read about half of the books in the series and my husband wanted to join in on the fun, so we continued to listen to this. Hopefully, he does not narrate the other books.
