Wasn't too sure what to expect from this since I haven't read any of the other books in this series and I'm not a fan of coming in at the middle of things. I could understand it as a standalone just fine, but probably would have gotten a LOT more out of it if I'd known more about their backgrounds and previous meetings with certain villains.

I found the book to be both fantastic and terribly weird. I don't mind supernatural/new agey stuff seeping into a real world story line, but parts of this book were a little much even for me. The basic plot is that, while taking a trip to Walt Disney World, Stoner's business partner mysteriously goes missing. It turns out she was kidnapped (I won't say who, but I bet it's pretty obvious if you're familiar with the series). At the same time, Stoner keeps receiving strange phone calls from a girl who's lost at WDW as well. As they search for the missing women, more clues and more danger jumps out at them. And then it definitely takes a supernatural turn for the worse involving spirit planes and Disney rides come to life as death hangs in the balance.

Stoner McTavish and her gang are great characters. They're interesting, three-dimensional, and believable. Stoner and her girlfriend are a great couple- I had no trouble in feeling their love or understanding what each sees in the other.

It was a nice read, but I bet I would have loved it more if I had read previous books... or if I'd ever visited Epcot Center (I've been to WDW but not to most of the places mentioned here). It was very strange at times, but in general it was still very enjoyable. And it was great to see strong women, conflicting emotions, true love, strong friendships, and all that good stuff that went along with the mystery.

Will set this aside for an LGBT bookbox.
