Imagine that you are in Disney World and it's after closing. It's like a dream come true! Or a nightmare if you're Finn Whitman and his group of DHI (Disney Host Ineractive) friends. After their last episode (Kingdom Keepers: Disney After Dark), the DHIs are returning to the Magic Kingdom. During a parade celebrating their return, Finn notices two girls in the crowd. It's Amanda and Jez. He's happy to see them, but they don't look so happy.
During the middle of the parade, funny things start to happen. It appears that the Overtakers are back and they aren't going down so easily this time. It's a race against time and the kids seem to be on their own for the majority of this adventure. Can they save the park and themselves?
Kingdom Keepers II was a lot better than the first one. The best part is, Mr. Pearson left the ending open for a third book in the series, and I cannot wait to get a copy in my hands. Be forewarned this series needs to be read in order.
Though this book was not as good as the first in my opinion, it was still pretty interesting, especially for those of us who haven't been to the park in over 15 years. This book mainly focuses on the Animal Kingdom part of the park and also Maleficent and Chernaborg. Hardly any other characters are mentioned (Aladdin and Jasmine breifly, Ariel has about a two page part..) which that was disappointing to me as I wanted more character interaction, but was left with only the two bad guys that were talked about constantly. Though the story line still moved along rather quickly, I just kept wishing for more characters and more parts of the park. Hopefully in the next book they'll do just that.
