I love to read, and I love all things gaming related (you must know this about me by now). Admittedly, I enjoy MInecraft, but I am not a super fan like a lot of people I know. My nephew is however. He could watch YouTube videos of people playing for hours – and he has. When I mentioned a book I was receiving to him – Bacca and the Riddle of the Diamond Dragon – he immediately knew he was talking about. He started freaking out and asked if he could read the book when I was done with it. Well I breezed through it because despite not being a Minecraft super fan, I still really enjoyed it. It was a fun book and a great read! He breezed through it as well and loved it.

This book is written by JeromeASF, who is an enormously popular Minecraft Internet personality with nearly 3.6 million YouTube subscribers and over 647 million views. He has teamed up with Sky Pony Press, whose unofficial novels for Minecrafters are an industry phenomena with over 1.25 million titles sold, to debut his Bacca character in BACCA AND THE RIDDLE OF THE DIAMOND DRAGON: An Unofficial Minecrafter’s Adventure (8/4/15; $9.99; ages 9+). JeromeASF’s debut novel is timed to release with the premiere of a brand-new animated webseries based on the author’s Bacca character. Perfect for Minecraft fans of all ages, Bacca and the Riddle of the Diamond Dragon showcases the YouTube Minecraft star that fans around the world have come to love: funny, creative, and just a little bit crazy! Using an expert’s knowledge of the game and an exciting plot that mirrors much of what users would actually be doing while playing the game, the book is an energetic and action-packed digital saga. Perfect for reluctant readers, these books are sure to fly off the shelves just as quickly as the bestselling PC game of all time.

Bacca has it all. The most celebrated (and furry) star in the Overworld, he’s the person others look to for help building their dungeons, mazes, and castles. He has a girlfriend, LadyBacc, and his most prized possession of all—a diamond axe called Betty. One day, Bacca is approached by a mysterious dragon . . . made entirely of diamonds! The dragon is from a new biome—a secret land few have ever seen—where a special object has been stolen. A seemingly impossible set of riddles and challenges stands in the way of getting it back, but if Bacca can help, the dragon promises he’ll receive a new weapon even better than Betty. Is he willing to risk everything and push his crafting skills to their very limits? As his millions of YouTube fans already know . . . of course he is! He’s Bacca!
