AWESOME ~ Review by L.J
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.
If you're looking for other Minecraft novels to pick up, my son also loved ENCOUNTERS WITH THE HEROBRINE 3-IN-1: Minecraft Novel Collection

~The most successful Minecraft novel on Amazon~
Gameknight999, King of the Griefers, is suddenly transported into his favorite game, Minecraft. As he struggles through spine-tingling life and death adventures, with giant spiders, zombies and creepers hunting him at every turn, Gameknight learns the greatest secret in Minecraft—the NPCs are alive and battling for their very survival.
A war is raging across all the server planes between the monsters of the Overworld and the NPCs. If the mobs win, then they’ll destroy everything within Minecraft, and be able to move into the physical world to take over EVERYTHING!
The Invasion of the Overworld is filled with exciting battles, suspenseful adventures, and detailed characters that will take the reader on a fully immersive journey that will let them see and feel Minecraft. The story has a strong message about anti-bullying and shows the negative ramifications of these anti-social behaviors. The Invasion of the Overworld teaches a compelling message that is resonating with both kids and adults all over the world.
For ages 10+ Book 1 in the Gameknight999 series: Gameknight999 loved Minecraft, reveled in building fabulous structures, playing on servers, creating custom maps, but most of all, he loved to grief.
As the self-proclaimed King of the Griefers, Gameknight played the game for himself at the expense of everyone else, keeping the list of his friends in the game short, extremely short. But when one of his father’s inventions teleports him into the game, Gameknight is forced to live out a real-life adventure within the digital world of Minecraft.
Unsure if he would respawn if killed in the game ... maybe he’d just disconnect ... or maybe he’d really die ... Gameknight must play the game with all of his skill and knowledge in order to avoid the sharp claws of zombies and pointed fangs of spiders.
While living out this terrible and painful adventure, he discovers the most well-kept secret about Minecraft, something not even the programmers realize; the creatures within the game are alive!
His emergence into the game triggers a war that threatens to consume all of Minecraft and possible the physical world as well. Gameknight must fight through the electronic world with his new NPC friend.
