Overview

Invasion of the Overworld: An Unofficial Minecrafter's Adventure (Gameknight999 Series #1) by Mark Cheverton

A New York Times Best Seller!

The world of Minecraft comes to life in this thrilling adventure!

Gameknight999 loved Minecraft, but above all else, he loved to grief—to intentionally ruin the gaming experience for other users.

When one of his father’s inventions teleports him into the game, Gameknight is forced to live out a real-life adventure inside a digital world. What will happen if he’s killed? Will he respawn? Die in real life? Stuck in the game, Gameknight discovers Minecraft’s best-kept secret, something not even the game’s programmers realize: the creatures within the game are alive! He will have to stay one step ahead of the sharp claws of zombies and pointed fangs of spiders, but he’ll also have to learn to make friends and work as a team if he has any chance of surviving the Minecraft war his arrival has started.

This action-packed tribute to the worldwide computer game phenomenon is a runaway publishing smash and the perfect companion for Minecraft fans of all ages.

Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers—picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults.

This book was awesome, I loved the main character, Gameknight, he was great at Minecraft, even though he was a griefer. This book was exciting and funny and sad and great. the best part was the bad guy, Erebus. I instantly hated this character, but at the same time, was a little scared of him. Nice job, author. If you love minecraft, you have to get this book, you read it over and over again, I'm already starting to read it again!!!

As blackstyx saw the sword he was suprised and confused. Usually he had prophothetic dreams and if this was true the fate of minecraft depended in his hands. The options: relese the furies and the fury hydragon or get his freind back. There were hundreds of soldiers. Mikcholango109 also was hunting down creepers. As blackstyx put his armour on( all enchanted diamond.) He picked up the sword of red. It was made of a mix of notchian marble and herobianic magma. Ingraved was now the englesh language. Balance." He will make a fine colection to out souls" . Shut up hes mine 'silence and watch the cube. Remember how we escaped'. Blackstyx heard in his head. He gathered the troops and set off into the foest him and his team plowing down the trees with 1000 diamond axes. There weapons and armour were at the highest enchantment. The cube was near. They got to the creeper camp and they saw hundreds mabey thousands of the hissing creeps. Then in the sky, the furies. Firey red with wings of herobianic magma. This is going to be one tough job thought blackstyx. Reply and give suggestions. Thanks for the support and help. And a special thx to mikerocks210 for being awesome next part in unabriged guide.

Well done, quite an imagination! I base my rating on the story, how the story moves me and how the story keeps me interested. What an idea using Minecraft to set this adventure. Yes, error here and there, violence but this is based on a game and I don't let the error bother me unless the error distort the story so much that I lose interest. Gameknight 999, his father's invention teleports him into the game. His adventure takes him in the digital world of Minecraft. To survive Minecraft he must play the game. Creepers, Spiders, Zombie, Skeletons, did it have wolves? Hmmm..... Now these rotting decaying monsters are not the block kind but blood thirsty sharp clawed monsters. He soon learns it's scarier in the game than outside of it. Violence galore but it's a game. He battles through challenges one after another. Villagers, hunters, archers,dark red enderman, so much going on but easy to follow. Erebus the king of the Endermen, can Gameknight999 stand up to this terrifying King? You can feel Gameknight999 fear of this monster of a king. He battles to save his life and to keep the monsters from entering the physical world. I continued to read with anticipation no sooner I reached the end.":( If you enjoy the game or just want to read a brilliant fun game book this is it. Amazing how the author managed to create a story out of a game like Minecraft, well done and quite an imagination. Won this on Goodreads, First Read Giveaway. Thank you, Darlene Cruz

FirestarLily you read warriors too I Love Them! :D Also liked the chapter one you wrote so far! You should make a book of your own. Minecraft Name: Tigerleaf after Tigerstar's strength and Spottedleaf's caringness. Warrior Cat Name: Stealthpaw of WindClan. If you are reading this and you don't know what warrior cats is you should Really Read it! Go Erin Hunter!!!!!!

Awesome book! So many parts freaked me out, but were exciting! Really fast paced, and has this idea that is really original! Can't wait for the next ones! Wonder if there's going to be more characters with the same intentions as Erebus... Hope for a certain thing to appear!

We were in the nether portal and saw a person named enderleader111. We all went to his house and he gave us all diamonds. We all wondered where he got all of those diamonds from. We asked and he said hefound a cave full of diamonds diamonds and more diamonds. We were going to get more diamonds and we saw creepers. We killed them all and made tnt. We were going back but all of a sudden out of nowhere every mutant mob you would know started to attack. We all killed them with our diamind swords and we almost died. We all didnt suspect thing when a mystrious mob came. Join on quest fothe diamond sword to be in my book. Thanks for reading.
