Pearson, Ridley Legacy of Secrets (The Return), 391 pages. Disney, 2016. $18. Langauge: G; Mature Content: G; Violence: PG (some fighting).
Finn has finally convinced the other Kingdom Keepers that there really is way to travel into the past and that they need to all go back to Disney’s opening day so that they can find Walt’s magic pen and put it in place for them to find in the future. We they make their way back, however, the swiftly realize that the pen is only a small part of their problems. The originator of the Overtakers is also there at the beginning – on the look out for opposition from Disney or others. Meanwhile, back in our present day, Amanda and Jess know that the Keepers are stuck in the past with no way to return – yet. And they are also battling opposition from the Overtakers. The girls need to find a few people to trust if they are ever going to bring the Keepers back.
I am so glad that the Kingdom Keepers books are still going strong. I am, however, mightly annoyed the Tia Dalma plays such a large role in the overall plot. Continue buying the series for your fantasy fans and your Disney fans.
