Publisher's Summary

The brand-new official Minecraft novel is a journey into the unknown! Max and Alison are proof that differences don’t stand in the way of friendship. Max is always on the lookout for a new adventure - even if it means getting into trouble - while Alison prefers to follow the rules. But both of them are fascinated by the beat-up old journal Max finds and the strange gate its secretive author, the Enchanter, describes: a portal to an otherworldly realm of danger called the Nether. 

After they use the journal’s instructions to craft the portal, Max and Alison squabble over whether to remain safe in the Overworld or to journey into the Nether to find the Enchanter...until a fateful accident makes the decision for them.Trapped in a scary new world, Max and Alison find an ally in Freya, a fierce warrior who has been living in the Nether with her beloved wolf, Bunny Biter. With Freya’s help, and with the clues that lie in the pages of the mysterious journal, Max and Alison embark on a quest to find the Enchanter, even as the Nether pushes their skills - and their friendship - to the limit.

Mixed feelings: Possibly Good?

This Minecraft book took me by surprise. After trudging through the train wreck that was “The Crash” I went into this book uncertain of what I would get. And what I got was ok to say the least. But there is a little about it that left me confused. To start off, after reading “The Crash” I could tell the author Mojang hired had CLEARLY never played Minecraft. This one, however, seemed to show that the author does play Minecraft, or, at least I think they do. Practically everything that happens in the overworld is accurate to the game, and what does change is acceptable for the world the author is trying to build. I could nitpick and say “ooooh but there’s no enchantment for boots that can make you fly, and unless you somehow get a curse, there’s no way to fail enchanting” but with the characters the author was trying to build, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is I can tell the author has played Minecraft... in the overworld. Once the characters go to the nether, I get confused as to how much the author actually knows about this game. Pigmen... don’t ride chickens. What the heck? And only wither skeletons have swords, not normal skeletons. And something is just off about the way they describe the Nether landscape, and the fortresses, well, aren’t like the ones in the game. The problem I have with some of these Minecraft books is that the authors try to change stuff in Minecraft to be like the real world, when it’s them who should be changing their story to fit with Minecraft. I could go on and on, but I should just get on with my review on the actual story now, shouldn’t I?
BIG step up from “The Crash”. I can relate to and feel for these characters, and actually care about them and their journey. This book hits hard, evoking emotions for the characters I never thought I would have. It hurts when the sad parts happen, and the little victories are even happier. The characters grow and change throughout as they reach their goals and achievements. I dunno, I’m just kind of rambling and using filler at this point, but what else can I say? It’s a good book. Read it. It’s great. Uhhhhh that’s it. Thanks.
