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!

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.

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.
