Amanda Lockhart is one of the unofficial Kingdom
Keepers. She plays a huge role in all of the stories. She can be
found in all of Ridley Pearson's books based on the five DHI's
(Disney Host Interactive), who crossover into the Disney parks when
they sleep to stop an extremely evil group known as the Overtakers.
The Overtakers want to take all the fun and happiness out of the
parks and it's up to Philby, Maybeck, Finn, Charlene, Willa, Jess,
and herself to stop the Overtakers evil plans. Ridley Pearson's
books consist of "Disney After Dark," "Disney at Dawn," "Disney in
Shadow," "Power Play," "Shell Game," "Dark Passage," "The Insider,"
"The Syndrome," and "The Return" which was just released last week
as part of a trilogy set about the Kingdom Keepers.
She is 15 years old and moved from Maine to live
in Orlando, Florida at Mrs. Nash's orphanage where she lives with
her sister Jess. She goes to school at Winter Park High School with
Finn Whitman. She can always count on her friends Wayne, Jess, Finn,
Dillard, Willa, Philby, Charlene, Maybeck, Wanda, and the good
Disney characters. Her enemies include Mrs. Nash, Greg Luowski, the
Overtakers, and the rest of the evil Disney villains.
Amanda isn't like normal 15 year old girls. She
has special powers and is a Fairlie. Her powers include levitating
people and objects. She dresses like a normal teenager with normal
outfits such as jeans, shirts, shorts, skirts. She and Finn finally
have a romantic relationship after something always got in the way
in most of the books. Charlene was extremely jealous of this, but in
the later books Charlene started a relationship with Maybeck.
A lot of people including myself are hoping the
Kingdom Keepers series gets turned into movies and video games. I
think the stories are fantastic and they would really bring a new
element of fun and adventure to the Walt Disney Company.
The Kingdom Keepers aren't found in the parks, but
hopefully someday they can be incorporated somehow. After reading
the books, you will never look at Disney parks the same again,
especially 'It's a Small World!'
