Power Play, written by Ridley Pearson is the fourth installment in his series, Kingdom Keepers. Following the events of Disney in Shadow, the DHIs are in for quite the surprise when they hand in hand experience the true power of the villains they face at night. As the villains’ plans start to affect their day to day life, and the DHIs and their friends are continuing to fight the battle that seems to get worse and worse with each passing minute. Overall, I find this series to be perfect for anyone of the age of 11 and older. This novel is a excellent 4 out of 5 stars, and I can’t wait for this series to expand as the characters grow older, the next book is called Shell Game.

Not all information about WDW is accurate. The monorail does not go to Disney's Hollywood Studios.

Book #5 is now out.
