Great book, was on a plane listening to this and it took the whole journey! It has a great story and really gets you sucked in it! Has some great twists with it too! one of the best books I've read! AMAZING!

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.

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.
