Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating.
This week’s Waiting on Wednesday post is for Dark Passage (Kingdom Keepers #6) by Ridley Pearson (Disney-Hyperion):
The five Kingdom Keepers and their core friends have uncovered a startling truth: Maleficent and the Overtakers are plotting a catastrophic event that could have repercussions far beyond the world of Disney.
Aboard the Disney Cruise Line’s inaugural passage through the new Panama Canal, the Keepers and their holograms uncover a puzzle hidden within the pages of a stolen journal. The point of that puzzle will reveal itself in the caves of Aruba, the zip lines of Costa Rica, and the jungles of Mexico. A destructive force, dormant for decades, is about to be unleashed. The five Kingdom Keepers are to be its first victims.
Why I’m looking forward to this book:
I have been a fan of the Kingdom Keepers series since the first book was published. As a giant Disney fan, I love the look inside the inner workings of Disney, and really enjoy the idea of five teenagers who are attempting to keep the Parks safe from the villains that Walt Disney created. Unfortunately, as the series has progressed, major issues have arisen in terms of the editing – I feel that the books are over-long and sometimes don’t always make sense – but nonetheless I am devoted and want to see the series through to its conclusion. This is the penultimate book – there’s only one left – so I’m looking forward to seeing just how Pearson raises the stakes. I just really hope more attention is paid to the editing!
Release Date: April 9, 2013
