*An eBook Review
This is a very quick read. Mark Mulle is the creator of the Minecraft game guides has a series of books to match. The stories are geared towards youth and young adult, maybe even adult lovers of the game. This is book one of a book series, and there are many to the Over and Under Worlds! This review is on City of the End, book 1 of The World Above.
The Story is about a girl who's been sent through a portal, to the Over World, in search of help for her people who are under attack. If you've played the game, you may know these creatures, called Creepers. But what she doesn't know is, there's some sort of conspiracy, because she's #1 deposited in the wrong location after stepping from the portal and #2 is wanted by the king's men as a criminal! Two strangers, children themselves offer to help her but there's more to these two than meets the eye.
The story is short and sweet. It's very simple so kids can easily get through it in about 30-40 minutes. It's a fun story, but it will only get the reader into the tale. It's about 45 pages and ends with a huge cliffhanger. The problem is, I'm couldn't get in to the story. I didn't find myself caring because when it's all described, it's not blocky and dorky as it is in the game and book covers. It felt as though it was missing something. I guess what I'm saying is, it's good for the kids, but maybe not adults.
If your kids like the games, get this book and the series. I'm off to the next read!
