Prince Xander was being groomed to be a warrior. It was all he had ever dreamed of and was rather proud of himself. Then came a night when one of the best warriors died saving him and another was mortally wounded.
That night changed Xander’s view, his feeling about himself, and his dream. However, his mother, the queen, and the people allowed him to continue his training where others would have been severely dealt with.
However the night Xander finally completes his training he also found out the truth about his quest and the evil being perpetuated by his people. This changes Xander’s view and choices irrevocably.
In spite of the fact that I am not a Minecraft fan, this story caught my attention from the very first line and managed to hold it. Considering that the book is only 109 pages long I would say the author managed to make the best use of every line, still managing to have a well-developed story that would appeal to readers of all ages.
Xander has the heart of a hero. In spite of his fatal mistake at the beginning of the book, I fell in love with his character and cannot wait to see how he moves forward in book two.
What I Liked
I liked the fact that you do not need to be a Minecraft fan to understand and enjoy the story. In fact, if Minecraft is anything like this book I can finally understand why so many love it.
I actually choose this book because both my sons are Minecraft fans. I thought we would read it together for their entertainment and at the very least I may begin to understand what draws them to the game so much.
What I didn’t expect was that I would fall in love with this book.
What I Didn’t Like
I wouldn’t change one line. I think this book would appeal to adults and children alike.
Point to Note
I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for a review.
Stamp of Approval
I recommend this book without reservation. I would definitely love to read the others in the series. I would love to get my son a copy of this book.
