As the five Kingdom Keepers enter high school, everything is about to change. The Maintenance Base that controls all four parks in Disney World is under attack by the Overtakers, a group determined to change Disney forever. Relationships between the Keepers are no longer as simple as they once were. In fact, nothing is as simple as it once was. An after-hours visit to Typhoon Lagoon is a game changer. The Keepers lose one of their most valuable supporters. But there's work to do....

The Disney Dream leaves Port Canaveral on a historic cruise to Los Angeles with a special treat in store for guests: the Disney Host Interactive teenage guides are on board.

Finn, Maybeck, Charlene, Willa, and Philby join celebrity guests as the DHI experience moves to one of the most advanced cruise ships in the world.

But all is not right belowdecks. Strange things are happening. Unexplained phenomena. Only the Kingdom Keepers know the truth behind their invitation to be in attendance: nearly every Disney villain is aboard the ship, including Maleficent.

The Overtakers have infiltrated the cast and crew. And no one knows what they have planned.The Dream sets sail filled with enthusiastic guests and crew. But not for long. Maleficent takes over a video screen and warns the guests of trouble to come. With the ship arriving at the beaches of Castaway Cay - its first of many exotic ports of call - the Kingdom Keepers are under attack; back home the Base is threatened and about to fall. The Overtakers have expanded in ways never foreseen, and it's clear they intend to use this element of surprise to accomplish what has eluded them so far: victory. But not if Finn Whitman and friends have anything to say about it.

Listener Opinions

    " I'd actually like to give this 3.5 stars. So much development in writing technique, characters, and plot! Completely surprised me and answered all my concerns or worries about the lacking in the series I previously pointed out with book four. Really enjoyed this book! I did feel that when the kids are captured during their performance and throughout the end of the book there was a slight lack of cohesion with the sequence of events. The content definitely took a leap - sword fighting, actual talk of death, and the villian's action - which is very appropriate for the high school age with the author has designated for the kids. Otherwise, well written...and did not see such a huge cliff hanger coming! "

    " Book 5 in the series, getting a little boring for me but this ones ends in the middle of the action so I will have to read Book 6. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chelsea | 2/11/2014

    " I got the first book in this series out of a school book order my mom brought home from work, purchasing it only because I love all things Disney and feeling like I was probably way to old to be reading it, I gave it a shot. Little did I know that I would absolutely love the series...it is suspenseful, fun, and yet realistic because you can imagine exactly where you are in your mind. Although, I am extremely angry with Mr. Pearson each time he leaves me hanging for a year after completing each book, I know that along with the enjoyment his books have brought me, I will never be able to visit Disney World again without thinking in the back of my mind..."What if it isn't just a story!" "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aurora Taylor | 1/19/2014

    " Well. Ahem. That was some ending. I'm kind of in a state of shock right now. I love cliffhangers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 5martens_kimberly | 1/15/2014

    " I really enjoyed the book Shell Game. It's the fifth book in the series and it really leaves you wanting to read the next book. The ending was not my favorite because it ends with them jumping off the edge of the boat and you have no idea what happens next. The book was very long and even though I like long books, this one seemed to lead no where. Usually in books there is a problem and then the problem is resolved. In Shell Game there was a problem from the very beginning and it just kept getting worse and worse. At the end the problem was still very big and it never got resolved. I hope that the at least a part of the problem will be resolved in the next book. Overall I really enjoyed the book Shell Game and I would recommend it to anyone who loves adventure, mystery, and Disney. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shazzer | 1/15/2014

    " I'm feeling that this series is starting to spin its wheels. I need some resolution. The action is well-paced and the characters continue to evolve, but I'm looking for more than the usual cliffhanger ending. I didn't connect to this book like I have others in the series, perhaps because I've never been on a Disney cruise, and therefore didn't connect with the surroundings like I did with the Disney World parks. All the same, I'm eager for the next installment. Pearson does know how to leave a girl hanging. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Cozette R | 1/14/2014

    " I enjoy anything Disney! This is a fun series for any age. As a group of teenagers battle the Disney villains to save the world. And this time it is based on the Disney cruise. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne Monsoon | 1/14/2014

    " Pretty fast-moving and interesting, especially toward the end. This, like books 3 and 4, is half of a full story. Unfortunately, I'm not sure when I'll be able to get a hold of the sixth book. Whomp. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Parker | 1/11/2014

    " I really enjoyed the leaders' adventures in this book. I was flushed rated by the end, which didn't really end but it leads into another book in the future. I would recommend this book to anyone who was a fan of Percy Jackson. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 ultimate reader | 1/5/2014

    " It was a flood of action, literally. I like the new update for the kingdom keepers that makes it easier to become pure light, but I don't like how it made it harder to just go from being a regular human to a DHI "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 1/4/2014

    " This is a great book. What a fast read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Molly Riggs | 12/20/2013

    " Great beginning, action-packed middle, terrible end...Now I can hardly wait for the next one bacause it stops so suddenly in the middle of their cruise! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie Donely | 12/6/2013

    " The further we go in this series, the more convoluted it gets, but I feel to far in to back out now. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Megan Jowers | 12/3/2013

    " It's fast moving. The kids are older and the details are getting more complex. I was able to read book 4 and 5 together. And wish I had #6 so that I could finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sean J. | 12/3/2013

    " The story continues to be interesting and I can't wait to see what happens in Book 6! Ridley Pearson deserves a LOT of credit for all the research he does! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 11/11/2013

    " just from reading the description of how it's on the maiden voyage of the Dream, but it's going to LA (instead of just the Bahamas, like it actually did) is going to bother the heck out of me the entire time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth Jansen | 6/8/2013

    " It was a very good book, but slightly complicated and confusing at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dominica | 5/9/2013

    " So far, I'm hooked. It's so awesome! But you'll have to start with the first book if you want to understand it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Matthew Johnson | 2/17/2013

    " Great book. Was hoping for more 'cruise' theme going on though. Ending was completely unexpected and now I have to read the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jason Mccue | 2/7/2013

    " While it had a few hiccups in the story it was still a good read and continues the Keeper's story, this time on the Disney Cruise Ship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Izzy | 11/21/2012

    " If it hadn't been for the cliffhanger, I would have given it 5 stars but.... Loved it but HATE how I have to wait a year for the next one! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 9/11/2012

    " I hate the ending but the fact that there are going to be 2 more books it's got to be just a cliffhanger so... "

    " I couldn't finish because it was sadly due at the library :( "
