Publisher's Summary

In the thrilling sequel to the New York Times best-selling novel Minecraft: The Island, a stranded hero stumbles upon another castaway - and discovers that teamwork might just be the secret to survival. 

Wandering a vast, icy tundra, the explorer has never felt more alone. Is there anything out here? Did I do the right thing by leaving the safety of my island? Should I give up and go back? So many questions, and no time to ponder - not when dark is falling and dangerous mobs are on the horizon.

Gurgling zombies and snarling wolves lurk in the night, and they’re closing in. With nowhere to hide, the lone traveler flees up a mountain, trapped and out of options...until a mysterious figure arrives, fighting off the horde singlehandedly. The unexpected savior is Summer, a fellow castaway and master of survival in these frozen wastes.

Excited to find another person in this strange, blocky world, the explorer teams up with Summer, whose impressive mountain fortress as a safe haven...for now. But teamwork is a new skill for two people used to working alone. If they want to make it home, they will have to learn to work together - or risk losing everything.

continuation of Jack Black's story, without Jack.

The story was great, would have been better with Jack Black's narrative again. Sean did a great job, but sing Jack narrated the first book, and this was part 2 of the story, it would have been much better with Jack. I would buy it again if they rereleased it with Jack Black...

Unbearable without jack black

The new guy just sounds so annoying sometimes. I haven't finished but i can already tell it won't be as good. Story is fantastic though!

This book is good

I love this book, but I wish jack black narrated it because having to people be the same voice hurts my brain.

Beautiful

This is a very poignant book for these Covid times. Max Brooks is able to capture what my children (and I) were feeling while looking forward to a bright adventurous future. Thank you Max Brooks for such a lovely story.

Not as good as the first one

The first one was a fun read because it was about a guy learning to survive and overcome the challenges of a familiar world. This one is about that same guy getting stripped of most of his agency and becoming a sidekick to a Strong Female Character. It's not as preachy as it might have been, but whereas the "lessons" in the first book were rules of survival and general common sense, this book really stepped up the social commentary with "this reminds me of a problem we have back in the real world..." I don't need to be lectured about religious tolerance by a Minecraft novelization.

That said, it was still a moderately entertaining read. It's always fun seeing Minecraft picked apart and dissected, and this book does pretty well with that. Unfortunately, whereas the first book was all about discovery and innovation, this book is all about being shown the answers by someone who already knows. And boy, Summer is the worst. "I'm not gonna tell you anything about what's going to happen to help you prepare. Hey, why don't you know this? I can't always take care of you!" She's already done everything and she's just flat out better at literally everything than our narrator, except being a good friend and sometimes, critical thinking. She's also condescending and seemed self absorbed at times. I don't like her.

Anyway, I'll still probably read the next one, but I wasn't super impressed with this one.

Where's Jack Black?

Story was good but Jack Black made the last book. This title has a completely different energy.

Just like the last one with the same issues.

Sean is fantastic, the story is very good but with the same lame self-help platitudes hammed in your ear like a iron spike. They constantly ruined great story beats.

So cool and I love Minecraft

So I love that it updates as the story progresses. I recommend this not just to people who like Minecraft but also suspense and action. I chose a 5 star rating because it is a very good book I bet it is even better if you read it plus,if you listened to it you would have to read the first book that kind of leaves you on a cliffhanger.
