4.0 out of 5 stars Some Flaws, but a Mostly Enjoyable Adventure, 20 Nov 2008
This review is from: The Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark (Paperback)
Finn is having strange dreams. They started when the thirteen year old became a "Disney Host Interactive," a fancy term for a hologram that guides guests around Disney World's Magic Kingdom. But now, every night, he finds himself wandering around the deserted theme park.

Things only get weirder when he finds out the other four DHI's are experiencing the same thing. Then they learn from Imagineer Wayne that this was their real purpose. Seems that the forces of evil are trying to rebel and take over the park. And it is up to Finn and his new friends to figure out a way to stop them from succeeding. Can they do it?

For a Disney fan like me, this book has an irresistible premise. When I learned about it, I couldn't pass it up. And I mostly enjoyed it. In fact, every time I picked it up, it was a fight to set it back down again. The story moved quickly and I especially enjoyed the setting since I just made my first trip to Disney World. Several scenes were very exciting, and I may never look at some of my favorite attractions the same way again.

However, the book did have some problems. The only character I felt I really got to know where Finn and Amanda, a new student at his school. The other four DHI's were a bit interchangeable to me. Additionally, there is a major plot hole in the story. Finally, the climax was a bit weak.

I know these complaints sound rather major, but they weren't. The fantasy and fun of the story made it easy to overlook them and enjoy the story. I'm sure anyone in the targeted 10 and up age range, but especially Disney fans, will find this book thrilling.
