Minecraft–Kids love it!



Guest post by Mark Cheverton

MINECRAFT NOVEL – Invasion of the Overworld: A Minecraft Novel is the first book about Minecraft to have made it into Amazon's top 100 list. With an exciting adventure story for kids & a strong positive message about friendships & helping others for parents, people of all ages are reading this book. It’s generating reviews like:

5.0 out of 5 stars 11-year-old grandson thought it was "fantastic" By Grandma PK

My grandson got this book as a Christmas gift. As soon as he opened the package he headed for a soft place in the sun to lay down & start reading. Later he read it for 45 minutes in the bathtub. When I tried to turn out the light to go to sleep he pleaded with me to let him read to the end of that section because the story was "fantastic". He had finished the book by 7 am the morning after Christmas. Now he intends to read it again.
This exciting action/adventure novel is a fast paced book that keeps the reader engaged until the last page. It addresses issues about cyber-bullying and the value of friendships and is resonating with people of all ages.


Note from Seann: This book is for ages 10+. Invasion of the Overworld: A Minecraft Novel has 221 reviews. Mostly 5 star. Wow! That is impressive.

An excerpt:(Kindle Locations 348-359)

Stopping quickly, Gameknight just barely avoided falling into a cavern where he would’ve likely taken damage. Slowing his pace, he proceeded more carefully, avoiding the many caverns and crevasses in this world.

What an interesting map.

It was like nothing he’d ever seen before. The village appeared as he crested the next hill. It was your standard village with crops at the center near the well, small structures surrounding the fields, and larger buildings on the periphery. Dispersed amidst the wooden homes were the stone buildings that looked castle-like, with a tall two story tower rising above the rest of the structures. And of course there were the villagers, maybe twenty of them. Most of them were hiding in their homes because it was dark, and night time was monster time.

There were monsters all throughout the village: spiders, skeletons, zombies, and the occasional enderman.

Excerpt of a review by L.J - AWESOME

As some of the other reviewers have pointed out, this is a book for OLDER kids. My 11 year old son said it was AWESOME. He said the main character was really cool and there were tons of lines that cracked him up. I hope the author comes out with some more Minecraft novels soon.

Invasion of the Overworld: A Minecraft Novel is Available on Amazon!
