Diary of an 8-Bit Warrior

    The Diary of an 8-bit warrior series is the ultimate Minecraft fan-fiction for ages 7 and over. Written by author, gamer and Minecraft super-fan Cube Kid, the series follows Runt, a twelve-year-old Minecraft villager who dreams of becoming a warrior. 

    Runt is determined to be a hero. The time has come for him to choose his future vocation at the Minecraftia school, but somehow the jobs on offer - farmer, crafter or miner - just do not appeal. What he really wants is to be a warrior like his idol, Steve. When his school offers the chance for the five best students to start warrior training, he finds the ideal opportunity to prove himself. The series follows Runt’s journey as he tries to make it as a first-class warrior, and then, in Quest Mode and the latest book Forging Destinythe perilous adventures he undertakes when he finally makes it.

    Originally self-published under the title Wimpy Villager, Diary of an 8 Bit Warrior became an instant hit in the Minecraft community. There are now six books in the unofficial Minecraft adventure series.

    Runt’s journal has great colour illustrations and lots of laugh-out-loud moments alongside the exciting adventures. The journal format will appeal to fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid or Dork Diaries and, needless to say, Minecraft book series can be the perfect way to get fans of the game reading.

    Although there are many other Minecraft books for kids, the gripping pace, humour and illustrations in this series make it a great one to start with. It’s best to read the books in order to follow Rudy’s journey from noob to warrior on his perilous and exciting quests. Start with book one and you’ll race through the series in no time thanks to the cliff-hangers at the end of each story.
