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.
