Legacy of Secrets (Kingdom Keepers: The Return #2) by Ridley Pearson
(Disney-Hyperion, 2016, 400 pages)
Legacy of Secrets by Ridley Pearson is the second book in the Kingdom Keepers: The Return series. The Kingdom Keepers are a group of five recent high school graduates who are on a mission to save the Disney Parks. In this book, the five Kingdom Keepers have traveled back in time 60 years from 2015 to the Opening Day of Disneyland in 1955 in search of Walt Disney’s magic pen. They find themselves in awe of being present on Opening Day, but also at a disadvantage when it comes to technology. If the five do manage to find the pen, there is another big hurdle. How do they return to 2015?
Legacy of Secrets alternates between being in 1955 and 2015. In 2015, friends of the Kingdom Keepers are trying to contact the five Keepers. The friends need to get an important message to the Keepers. In 1955, the Keepers are trying to stay one step ahead of others who are also trying to find Walt’s pen. Ridley Pearson is currently working on the third book in the series, but the official title hasn’t been released yet.
Even though the Kingdom Keepers series is fiction, it is obvious that Ridley Pearson does his research. Pearson has been given access to “all things Disney” that most fans will never get to see. If you are a Disney fan, this series is for you.
