Publisher's Summary

Steve lives on a wheat farm. He has everything he needs to live in the Minecraft world: a bed, a house, and food. Steve likes to spend his mornings in the NCP village and trade his wheat for emeralds, armor, books, swords, and food. One morning, he finds that Zombies have attacked the villagers. The Zombies have also turned the village blacksmith into a Zombie, leaving Steve without a place to get swords. To protect himself and the few villagers that remain, Steve goes on a quest to mine for 40 diamonds, which are the most powerful mineral in the Overworld. He wants to craft these diamonds into a diamond sword to shield him and the villagers from the Zombies.

Far from his home, with night about to set in, Steve fears for his life. Nighttime is when users are most vulnerable in Minecraft. As he looks for shelter in a temple, he meets a trio of treasure hunters, Max, Lucy, and Henry, who are trying to unearth the treasure under the temple. Steve tells them of his master plan to mine for the most powerful mineral in the Overworld - the diamond. The treasure hunters are eager to join him. Facing treacherous mining conditions, a thunderstorm, and attacks from hostile mobs, these four friends question if it's better to be a single player than a multiplayer, as they try to watch out for each other and chase Steve's dream at the same time. Will Steve find the diamonds? Will his friends help or hinder the search? Should he trust his new treasure hunter friends? And will Steve get back in time to save the villagers?

Good performance, unrealistic story.

Explained and described well so my kids could understand and relate but Wasn’t realistic compared to the real minecraft game.

The strong zombie

I loved that he did so much to keep the villagers alive and that he tried so so hard to get the diamond sword so let’s appreciate the effort the writer put in this.

Awful! If you are a fan of the game, this is not for you.

This book was, I’m sorry to say, truly abysmal. I have no words.










Ok, you know what? I do have words. A lot. First off, iron blocks from a blacksmith? No. This simply does not happen. Secondly, why would you need a player to build a golem? They spawn naturally in the villages! And you don’t read the books from the library, you enchant with them. And that’s just the village! End portals only exist in nether portals?!?!?! I do not have enough disapproving emojis to express my feelings. The narrator does a good job, I must admit, although I hope he uses his talents on a better project in the future. This book is sufficient for kids under 7 who don’t really know the game, but fans, I warn you: ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE!

Also Steve’s hair isn’t yellow smh

Narrator tried, but not a lot to work with

I’m going to be generous and say this is a story for young children. The ‘plot’ jumps around a lot and doesn’t make a ton of sense most of the time (especially if you play the game), which wouldn’t bother young children much, so it’s the only thing that makes sense to me. Otherwise, a waste of 2+ hours.

Explain how to play the game, but not

The story feel really stilted. always trying to explain how the game works. This could be forgivable if the thing in the story where like in the game.
ex: End portal can only be created in a nether forteress. This is not true, end portal are found in the overworld. I feel that it might cause frustration for a child thinking the game works like the story.

Excellent book

This book dives deep into the very depths of literature. Creating new ways to think about a simple game. Simply extraordinary. Bravo!

Ok...

A great book for bedtime but narration isn’t as good as Other Minecraft books like The End or The Lost Journals. Still, it was ok. Definitely a good book.
