The Insider by Ridley Pearson-OPTIONAL

Pearson, Ridley, The Insider. Pgs. 609. Disney Hyperion, 2014. $17.99 Language: G, Mature Content: PG, Violence: PG

Three years after the Kingdom Keepers last dealt with the Overtakers, a witch deep within the catacombs of an Aztec Temple summons powers that should’ve been left alone. Meanwhile, in the Archives on the Walt Disney Studios Lot, terrifying wraiths and demons have broken in and destroyed everything in their wake. Fresh from graduation, Finn and the others are summoned back one last final battle. What are the Overtakers planning? Will the five teens be able to save the world?

Although the characters are poorly developed, the plot is fast-paced and engaging. Although the ending will leave readers asking what just happened, teens who have enjoyed the other books in the series will not be disappointed. EL (4-6), MS. OPTIONAL. Reviewer: Kira Moody, Youth Services Librarian, WHI Public Library.
