    One thought on “Dark Passage”

    1. Kinda sad I finished this so quick! I really want to go on a Disney cruise. OTS optional! I haven't given this book full marks and it's the first Kingdom Keepers book I've done that with. The reason is this, Ridley has a massive backlog of Disney Charcters to use in his books and yet the whole series we've only seen about 6 of them. I just think this is such a waste and there could have been so many cool interactions between Keepers and Characters. Also where the hell are the good guys? I mean w [...]

    2. I have been a fan of the Kingdom Keepers series by Ridley Pearson since the first book and have loved it. I'm just sad that this series is ending next year when book 7 is released in April. It's been a fun run with the keepers fighting the Disney villains known as the overtakers and getting help from the Disney heroes and heroines. They have even had to solve puzzles to find out where their friend Wayne is hiding. Placing the story on the Disney cruise line is really interesting too. Definitely [...]

    3. Finished this book earlier. It was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! It's totally got me on the edge of my seat waiting for the seventh ( and final ) book. I've read the Peter & the Starcatchers series and I, personally think Ridley Pearson does much better writing alone than with somebody else. Just an opinion.

    4. Sixth in the Kingdom Keepers urban fantasy series for kids revolving around holograms, Disney World, and a close-knit group of kids.My TakeWe pick up where we left off in Shell Game, 5, while Finn and Willa are flying through the air just after they've jumped off the Disney Dream. And it's a mad race to survive!This is the first time Pearson has concentrated on romance for Charlene and she's torn between two boys while Amanda is frustrated with Finn who is torn between Amanda and Storey. It's a [...]

    5. The biggest problem with the Kingdom Keepers Series is that it is too long. If Ridley Pearson had kept it to three or four books, he could have done what he wanted to do with it but would not have run out of plot devices.This book dragged on and on with the same things happening over and over again from the previous books but set on a ship which somehow made it more boring than interesting.The characters never learned anything and just made me annoyed. I used to like some of the characters but [...]

    6. The sixth of Ridley Pearson's clever "Kingdom Keeper" novels starts with a splash -- literally. Two of the Disney Hologram Interactive (DHI) kids, Willa and Finn, are overboard the Disney Dream cruise ship, and in trouble. The Overtakers (OT) Disney villains of the worst sort are on-board and planning an even bigger takeover than just the Disney parks.I've found these books consistently clever and entertaining. The characters, with the exception of the villains (who are who they are), are well [...]

    7. 3.5I'm sad to say I didn't like this one as much as the previous ones in the series. I missed the parks! Hopefully the next (and last book in the series) will be more like the first ones.

    8. WTH??? When did this book become so dark? I actually love that aspect, but I wasn't expecting it! I'll write a full review soon, but for now, some thoughts--Charlene and Maybeck! Charbeck! (No seriously, that's there ship name). The only couple in this series I actually care about, and their scenes together are just perfect! But RP needs to let Charlene get over Finn. It's getting annoying and adds nothing to the story--poor hyena! And the stereotypical bully might actually have a heart! Predict [...]

    9. This is the first time that I've ever reviewed a book, but Dark Passage is definitely worth a review. Just a warning- spoilers are ahead, so if you haven't finished yet, don't read! As always, the plot raced along. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. The characters were all developed a little more throughout the book. It was interesting how Ridley Pearson added how romance and crushes affected the relationships between the keepers. And the ending. Oh, the ending. Ridley, it's official- [...]

    10. Ridley Pearson's terrific Kingdom Keepers series, like the Harry Potter series, has officially graduated from YA to adult. With each successive release (this is now the 6th of 7 novels) the Kingdom Keepers have gotten far more serious and the danger that much more real than when the series started.In DARK PASSAGE, the 5 DHI hosts and their alllies continue to battle the Over Takers for domination of all things Disney. Seeing the greatest Disney villains come to life and actually try to harm peop [...]

    11. "You ready", are the first words you read and that is from the 5th book and the Keepers have a bigger problem then they could ever think of. Chernabog was brought aboard at Castaway Cay and with the looming phrase "One of us will die," and no one know what the phrase means and with Disney 365 gone wrong this have gone into the Keeper hardest fight yet to "keep" the peace in Disney

    12. This one was definitely better than the last one. The seriousness and severity of their adventures are alarming. Very quick read though the spa day I took helped get through it quickly. I thought there were at least 9 books in the series but just discovered that the 7th book is the final one, and then there is a prequel trilogy.

    13. The Overtakers are on board the Disney dream and this message comes repeatedly 'One of you is going to die' Will one of the kingdom keepers die? Who keeps sending that message to the keepers? Will this have a fairy tale ending? you will have to read to find out

    14. It isn't too often that a book catches me off guard, but WOW! I did not see some of the events at the end coming! Anxious to start the next one!

    15. Hot on the heels of Book 5's (extremely predictably resolved) cliffhanger, Finn and his fellow Kingdom Keepers/honorary Keepers/anyone who wants to become a Keeper are still hanging out on the Disney Dream cruise ship trying to figure out what the Overtakers are up to and how they can stop them. (If this sounds familiar, it's because it's the EXACT SAME plot that every KK book is about, but most especially the previous book in the series.)*sigh* Where do I begin? Seeing as how this book is almos [...]

    16. I found Book VI (continuation of the cruise storyline) better than Book V, particularly because it focused solely on the cruise ship and the ports of call, with no addition of a water park or Hollywood Studios. Tia Dalma, who was on the cover of Book VI, was actually a main villain in this book unlike Ursula in the previous book. The cruise line storyline intrigued me, but it wasn’t as well executed as I had hoped. The writer utilized a few more characters in this book, particularly villains, [...]

    17. DISCLAIMER: Because this is the sixth book in the Kingdom Keepers series, this review does contain some references to occurrences in the previous books. Major plot points or spoilers, however, are avoided.I am at a loss when it comes to my feelings about this series. It started out so incredibly strong, with awesome world-building and likable characters. I loved the inside look at the inner workings of Disney that most tourists and fans don't get to see, from the behind-the-scenes mechanics of r [...]

    18. The Kingdom Keepers tricked me! I started the series a couple of weeks ago when the sixth (and supposedly FINAL) book was published. If you've read my reviews, you know I never start a series until I can read the whole series at once.a rule I established after enduring the torture of waiting for each new Harry Potter book. So you can imagine my surprise when I arrived at the end of book 6 of The Kingdom Keepers to find there is still more story left! And not just a little! Oh, and book 7--the RE [...]

    19. Ok, this one isn't going to count towards my total b/c I didn't actually FINISH it, but I thought I should warn others about this book. It is SO bad. I only made it about 100 pages in before I gave up. I have read all the other books in the series and they have gotten progressively worse. First of, the books starts mid action. Now, while it has been a while since I finished the previous book, I don't remember it ending in a cliff hanger. Which means, action has taken place between the end of boo [...]

    20. These are no longer enjoyable. The author spends a lot of time wasted on tween feelings. He likes her. She likes him. He gets excited by every girl he walks byI'm a disney fanatic and the author is given exclusive rights to research. The disney facts are the only things keeping me reading this series.

    21. Dark PassagePLOT: Takes up after SHELL GAME. The Keepers are now faced with figuring out why the OT's want the journal, what the passages in the journal mean, what Jess's dream means, and how to stop the OT from bringing Chernabog to power. Then there's some other drama going on about their individual relationships, Philby and Finn's conflict over who's the leader, and concerns if they are all going to be replaced with the newer version of DHI's THOUGHTS*Usually it isn't hard for me to give my t [...]

    22. This one got darkREALLY dark. Dark Passage was definitely an apt title for this particular installment. As the Kingdom Keepers continue to keep the Overtakers at bay, additional characters and loyalties are tried. I'm also very surprised that the story took the dark line that it didI'm anticipating some remedying of the story line coming up in the novellas and #7, but I can't really say for sure where this is going (except to Disneyland, that's a definite). These Overtakers are getting REALLY DA [...]

    23. The only reason I gave this three stars is because it has potential and the plot is interesting, but overall it could have been way better and just fell flat for me. I used to really like this series but as I keep reading it, it seems to get worse. I loved the action in the first couple of books but it seems to have gotten side tracked with all of the teenage drama. There are plot holes and lines of dialogue that don't always match up with the speaker. These books, and series in general, could h [...]

    24. The "Kingdom Keepers" series is about teens who are chosen to be models for one of the Disney company's biggest projects: DHI projection. Not only does "DHI" stand for Disney Host Interactive, it also stands for Daylight Hologram Imaging. These teens were chosen because they must fight against the actual Disney villains themselves. These evil characters are called the Overtakers. Philby, Finn, Charlene, Willa, and Maybeck must battle for the control of the Disney parks. These fights have led to [...]

    25. I'm purely reading this series now just to finish it but this book was better than the last. I'm glad the next one finishes this series. One really annoying thing to note is how the author tries to instil a sense of character by giving Philby the nickname "professor" but all it does is confuse the dialogue and make the reader lose focus. In one sentence he uses the real name and another the nickname. It's just annoying in my opinion and doesn't add to the story development.

    26. I really enjoy this series they remind me of Disney (and how much I wish I could be there). So much action, adventure in all of these books. I enjoyed learning a little about Chernybog and how evil he can be. I didn’t really know anything about him until they mentioned him in this particular book. I wish there was more of Amanda and Jess in this book. Overall great book, great series and I recommend to anyone who is looking for a fast read. They make you not want to put the book down!
