This book is a 5 star special, it gives real life lessons, great minecraft content, and a amazing story, I would highly recommend this book to a minecraft player.

Instead of reading this book, I would recommend The Island. This book had a lot of potential but fell short. Doesn't explain the crafting and inventory very well and just leaves that up into the air. Plus, many Minecraft physics are ignored. Better for any Minecraft fan under 12.

I don't let my kids read Minecraft fiction mainly because they are poorly written, with lots of grammatical errors, violent and weak stories.
Mark Cheverton's Minecraft series of books is none of the above. Maybe violence in the game, but hey no more than playing the game itself. I appreciate the vast vocabulary used, grammatically correct and well edited content. My sons thought the story was gripping. They were 7 and 10 when I read the this book to them. They have now consumed all of this authors books.
This first book of the series starts out with the same heartbreak many of our kids face when playing Minecraft - being griefed - where someone deliberately destroys your creations that you worked hours on. It leads the main character down the path to anger, etc. But the real magic is what happens after that - lots of real life lessons to learn here. I recommend you read aloud to kids as young as 7 to 9, and discuss the themes and plots.

This book on it's own was fairly slow, but still interesting enough to not be boring. As things continue through the rest of the series, however, the characters get much more developed and the books get harder and harder to put down. The plots are intriguing and creative, and I greatly enjoyed the fact that mobs were used as actual important characters, rather than simply being used as cannon fodder for the good guys. Overall, I think this series is good for pretty much anyone who enjoys quick reads and enjoyable characters.

I especially liked Erebus. I mean, who doesn't? :)

Invasion of the Overworld is centered around a boy named Thomas "Tommy" Feynman, a Minecrafter, and the self-proclaimed "King of the Griefers". For those who don't know, a griefer is someone who destroys other people's builds, and takes their items for the purpose of a cruel prank. Tommy is simply messing around when he activates one of his father's latest inventions, the Digitizer, a machine that can transport things from the physical world into the digital plane. He gets zapped by the Digitizer, and is transported to the program currently playing on his computer, which just so happened to be Minecraft. Once he figures out what happened, he does his best to survive his first night. He then finds a village and befriends the villagers, who are amazed at his presence. Tommy finds out that he is the "User-that-is-not-a-user", the one destined to save Minecraft. At the same time, he meets Erebus, the violent and feared King of the Endermen, and see that the king has had his monsters attacking the villagers. Needless to say, Erebus isn't to excited to see the User-that-is-not-a-user. Can Tommy, known to the villagers as "GameKnight999", find a way to protect what Erebus has vowed to destroy? You'll have to read the book(s) to find out.
