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?

Great family story

My 7 and 11 year-old sons and 9 year-old daughter enjoy listening to this story in the car as we run errands and spend family time on the weekends. Well-performed narrator makes it enjoyable for us parents to listen along, as well.

My children loved it!

What did you like best about Quest for the Diamond Sword? What did you like least?

This book was obviously written for children who love Minecraft. I have two boys who have now listened to it 5 times in the first two weeks we have owned it. However, the story is below average. I would have never finished it if my family wasn't on a road trip listening to books together. Parents are not going to love this book, but they won't hate it ether. It is a good book to listen to as a family.

Would you ever listen to anything by Winter Morgan again?

We have already purchased the second book in the series.

What about Luke Daniels’s performance did you like?

I love listening to Luke. When picking a Minecraft book for my kids I chose this one specifically because he was the reader. Like all of his work each character has a distinct voice. His performance provided life into an otherwise average book.

Do you think Quest for the Diamond Sword needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Need one? No. But there is one. My kids have listened to it twice in the past 36 hours we have owned it.

Very cool book

This is an awesome book. I play minecraft and these books show minecraft with higher expectations and also with mods that seem like are added. If you love minecraft you should read this book.:)
Also play on the server batpro.mcpro.co Tell your friends about the server because it's cool but barely any people play on it

Not great lit, but ok for car ride w kids

There is nothing remarkable about this short novel except that it kept my Minecraft-obsessed nieces (8 and 12 years old) interested throughout a long car ride. We did have to stop the book frequently so that they could explain what was going on ("see, the green slimy monsters live in such-and-such, and only the whatchamajiggy can kill them"). Adults with any video game or role-playing game experience will easily understand what is going on. Kids might find this boring unless they have played Minecraft. Listen to it at 1.25 speed if you want it to end more quickly.

Perfect Balance

I liked how the book started out and then I liked the rest of it and I think this is how everything should be written

Family liked it.

I love hearing Luke Daniels perform audio books. I think the author tried to cram everything minecraft in and it was almost too much but my daughter loved it.

#FakeFacts and Plot holes

In this story facts about Minecraft are totally fake and wrong. For Example 40 diamonds to make a sword? Making a gold sword from iron ingot dropped from zombie pig man? The author has clearly never ever played Minecraft. Waste of time. But loved voice actor❤️
