Like many people, I’ve always been fascinated by Disney, especially by the man behind the colorful characters and fantasy parks that delight both young and old alike, Walt Disney.
Walt Disney World is an exciting, magical place, so I was happy to review a book written by Jeff Dixon,The Key to the Kingdom.
This book is not exactly what one might think; at first, I really didn’t know what to expect in reading it. However, it became apparent from the very beginning that it was a mystery/thriller type book with Grayson Hawkes as the lead character. When Hawkes accepts the invitation to meet an old friend, he receives an antique key that will end up leading him on the adventure of a lifetime, both dangerous and revealing. He longs to discover what this key is truly meant for….what does it unlock?
As I read this book, I realized how full of facts about Disney World and Walt Disney it really was; it was really very interesting because it’s almost a behind-the-scenes type of reading. It’s through both his knowledge of Disney and his Heavenly Father’s help that Grayson will unravel the many mysteries he will encounter along the way.
To be honest, I just couldn’t totally get into this book; and that’s ok because not every book is going to be my type of story. However, I did find the parts about Walt Disney World absolutely fascinating, so it was a 50-50 book for me, per se.:)I also agree with the author in certain ways, in that I believe that within everything we see, there is a deeper, more hidden story to tell, a story that may never be finished….a sort of mystery that we may never wrap our minds around. The author certainly does a great job of telling this story in such a mysterious way, so that the reader has to dig right along with the main character for the clues.
You can purchase The Key to the Kingdom for $15.99 from Deep River Books. It’s also available at Barnes & Noble, as well as The Key to the Kingdom‘s website. Be sure to Like Key to the Kingdom by Jeff Dixon on Facebook, and follow @DeepRiverBooks on Twitter.
