This week's teaser comes from the final installment of the Kingdom Keepers series by Ridley Pearson, The Insider. This is a young adult fantasy series set in the Disney parks.

Tia Dalma steps forward from behind the cages, observing the headless corpse lying on the the grate. She looks up at Chernabog, back at the guard's body. She shakes her head.

"Now, that's a problem," she says.

About the book:
Series: Kingdom Keepers #7

Deep within the catacombs beneath an Aztec temple, a Disney witch doctor is summoning powers that should be left alone. As terrifying wraiths and demons attack the Archives on the Walt Disney Studios lot, leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, Finn, Willa, Philby, Maybeck, and Charlene are summoned to Disneyland fresh from high school graduation. They must stop an enemy that hasn't been clearly identified.

In this, the final installment in the epic Kingdom Keepers series, betrayal and ambition push the boundaries of loyalty. Chasing scattered clues in pursuit of a long-lost icon--whose magic offers a fighting chance against an evil that Walt Disney himself created--the Keepers find their hearts and minds tested in the park where it all began. Bonds that once threatened to fray are renewed under the pressure for survival. As the five are pushed to their limits--and then beyond--feelings intensify behind self-imposed walls of well-kept secrets.

With its dazzling action sequences and moments of touching intimacy, Kingdom Keepers VII: The Insider will leave readers breathless, cheering, and biting their nails. It's a winner-take-all battle for magical good--but then why is Disneyland burning out of control?

I can't help but think of the Kingdom Hearts video games which uses Disney characters.

Can honestly say I have not heard of that. Am less than 150 to the end, and am anxious to finish this one, even though it is the end of the series.
