Danica Davidson Cover Art Gallery

Posted on: October 27, 2017

hi All!

I’m doing something a little bit different for my blog tour stop.  I’ve been getting a lot of questions from bloggers, reviewers, and parents who are in the tour about the reading order of these books.  Questions like – what all books are in which series?  Isn’t one of these series finished, and the other one isn’t?  Does my child (or me!) have to read these in order? Do we have to read the first series first and the second series second?

 

The easy answers are:

Danica’s six book Overworld Adventure series is complete.  She is currently writing the spin off series, which is called the Overworld Heroes series, the first book, Adventure Against the Endermen, will be available in early November.  You don’t have to read the first series first and the second series second. In fact, you could probably start with any book in any series, and enjoy a nice family friendly adventure that your kids are sure to love.

 

You can learn more about Danica Davidson and her many children’s novels at her website DanicaDavidson.com, or follow her on twitter at @DanicaDavidson.  To see a list of blog participating in this blog tour, click here.

 

Here’s the cover art for Danica’s  Minecrafter novels, with a little bit about each book:

THE OVERWORLD ADVENTURE SERIES:

Escape from the Overworld (book 1, published January 2015)

Stevie is in for a big surprise while building his treehouse: he’s first attacked by a creeper, and then must take on a group of zombies! The near miss has him feeling like the worst mob fighter in Minecraft, so when he finds a portal into a brand-new world, he’s willing to take his chances.

He steps out of a computer screen and into the room of a sixth-grade girl Maison, who’s a talented builder. Stevie is shocked by how different this world is, and Maison takes him under her wing. But soon the two friends learn zombies have also made their way out of the portal!

More and more creatures are slipping out by the second, wreaking havoc on a world that has no idea how to handle zombies, creepers, giant spiders, and the like. Stevie and Maison must put their heads together and use their combined talents in order to push the zombies back into Minecraft, where they belong. As Stevie and Maison’s worlds become more combined, their adventure becomes intense and even more frightening than they could have ever imagined.

 

Attack on the Overworld (book 2, published October 2015)

Stevie and Maison have a great friendship where they travel back and forth between the Overworld and the human world. Maison has earned some fame for battling off the mobs at her school, but the attention has also brought about cyberbullies DestinyIsChoice123 and TheVampireDragon555, who have hacked her computer and discovered the portal! Now, through complex coding, the cyberbullies have turned the Overworld into eternal night and unleashed a pack of zombies, allowing their griefing to reach a whole new level.

The Rise of Herobrine (book 3, published April 2016)

Stevie has been having repeated nightmares about the mysterious figure known as “Herobrine.” Some say Herobrine is an old ghost story. Some say he’s a virus. But no one believes he is real…except maybe Stevie, whose nightmares are telling him that Herobrine is going to take over the Overworld.

His cousin Alex has come to visit, and during one of her explorations, she finds a music disc that predicts the destruction of the Overworld! Are Stevie’s nightmares and the music disc connected? Stevie and Alex hook up with Stevie’s best friend Maison, and the three quickly begin looking for answers.

Down Into the Nether (book 4, published June 2016)

Stevie and Alex thought they defeated Herobrine completely, but they soon discover that he’s still on the loose. He has returned to Stevie’s nightmares, taunting him with threats to now destroy the human world.

The prophecies on music discs suggest that only Stevie and Alex, plus Maison, Destiny and Yancy, their friends from the human world will be able to defeat Herobrine. But the prophecies also warn that one of the friends will betray the rest, putting all the worlds at risk. Tensions run high as the group must figure out how to save the world while they try to discern the traitor in their midst. Maison, It isn’t long before the traitor is discovered.

Stevie and Alex find themselves separated from the others and must first journey into the Nether to find a special treasure that will enable them to confront Herobrine. The clock is ticking as they put their heads together to survive in the fiery depths of the Nether. Monsters are waiting for them around every corner and it won’t be much longer before they come face-to-face with Herobrine, who has become more powerful than ever.

The Armies of Herobrine (book 5, published September 2016)

The portal between Minecraft and the real world may have been restored, but Herobrine is still at large—and Stevie knows that a confrontation is inevitable. While Stevie, Alex, and their friends try to awaken humanity to the reality of Herobrine’s threats, the Overworld’s armies prepare for an epic battle.

When Herobrine creates his own portal to the human world and releases vicious zombies at the middle school Halloween party, the students are convinced the attack is just an elaborate prank—until the night takes a violent turn. With war breaking out around them, it’s up to Stevie and his friends to defeat Herobrine and restore peace.

Battle With the Wither (book 6, published October 2016)

After finally defeating Herobrine and rescuing his father, Stevie is looking forward to putting the prophecy far behind him. Bidding his friends farewell, Stevie returns to the Overworld to make up for lost time with his dad.

But their reunion is cut short when a Wither attacks the Overworld, destroying their house. When Stevie rushes outside to survey the damage, he can’t believe his eyes; they’re surrounded by deadly ghasts, blazes, and zombie pigmen from the Nether! Somehow, Herobrine has found a way to retaliate from beyond the grave—and now the entire Overworld must face his vengeance.

In the exciting conclusion to the Unofficial Overworld Adventure series, it’s up to Stevie, his dad, and their friends to restore balance between the Overworld and the Nether, defeat the Wither, and—most importantly of all — protect each other.

Adventure Against the Endermen
(book 1, available everywhere November 7th 2017)

After discovering a portal to Earth and battling the evil Herobrine and his army of vicious mobs, Steve and his friends are known throughout the Overworld as heroes. Stevie’s enjoying the attention―that is, until he tries to show off and instead falls down a mineshaft. At the bottom of the mineshaft, Stevie finds an Ender crystal with mysterious powers.

Soon the Overworld is in danger once again, this time from vicious Endermen! Mayor Alexandra summons Stevie, Alex, Maison, Yancy, and Destiny to try and stop the attacks. When the friends investigate, they quickly realize that the Endermen are looking for something. Could it be Stevie’s Ender crystal?

Soon the group of friends―now an Overworld task force―are caught up in a battle larger than any they could have imagined. Can they protect the world of Minecraft from Endermen―and the larger threat of the crystal?


Mysteries of the Overworld
(book 2, available January 2018)

Stevie and Alex are still looking for answers about the mysterious Ender crystal Stevie discovered, and the sinister voice that seems to emanate from it. Their search leads them to a strange book filled with writing in a strange language, and pictures that seem to show two adventurers trapping the evil Ender Dragon in the End.

As the writing in the book slowly reveals itself, the friends realize that the Overworld is in danger! The Ender crystal Stevie stumbled upon in the Overworld is one piece of an enchanted crystal that, if fully assembled, could either destroy the dragon―or set it free to destroy the world!

Now Stevie and his friends must race to find the pieces of the broken Ender crystal. Can they find them all before the Ender Dragon discovers a way to stop them?

The Overworld Heroes series will also be six books long, with the rest of the books scheduled to be available throughout 2018. If you’ve got a middle grade reader who enjoys adventure stories and Minecraft, this series will keep them busy for a while!
