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.

I read this story before and it's still a good story! No matter what, there is always a good mine craft story out there and I think I found it. I'm not sure how many I've read so far but guarantee I've missed a few.
Your imagination is the only tool needed in mine craft.I love it! If you can dream it you can build it.
In fact there was this one time that I built a giant castle, but those griefers are the worst thing ever.
It is hard seeing the destruction people can do to things ,that you build. I have seen the destruction and It makes you have these feeling of rage,madness and sadness. My created worlds are all troll proof at least I try.
Somehow I can't stop the destruction or the rage. Last time the rage was to difficult and I destroyed everything I had created.
It's hard knowing what rage does to you, to me it makes me a different person. First I'm a mister nice guy then in an instant I destroy everything that makes my world special.
The only thing that helps me calm down are my dogs,minecraft and music.

As a professional Minecraft gamer, under the legendary username "MLGCOOLKID69", in the legendary clam, "MYLITTLEPONY4LYFE", this is one of the dankest books I have ever laid my 45 year old hands on. As I read this book I felt my whole body sweating profusely in excitement of the books ore (Get It). We get to witness the thrilling adventures of gamernight999 in the world of minecraft. This is a great read and hope for there too be more in this lit series.
