For boys and girls who love Minecraft, a graphic novel adventure that uses over 750 images to transport young readers into the world of the game they love most.
Phoenix, Wolfie, and their friends are back in this exciting second part of the Unofficial Graphic Novel for Minecrafters series! Past the walls of their monastery, the monks of Xenos grow enchanted golden apples for their neighbor villagers. As readers learn in Quest for the Golden Apple, these golden apples have magical healing abilities and have the power to keep the villagers save. The monks also have and protect the knowledge that connects Xenos to her sister worlds. This knowledge keeps Xenos and her citizens safe. But when the monks are zombified, Xenos’s citizens need a new hero.
Following the design of zombie comics and Minecraft comics, follow Phoenix and her friends as they fight to save the citizens and monks of Xenos. But Phoenix and her crew of heroes have no idea and do not suspect the culprit behind this disaster—an incredibly powerful foe who will do anything to keep Phoenix from saving her world.
The following three books in this series—Chasing Herobrine, The Ender Eye Prophecy, and Battle for the Dragon’s Temple—continue the adventures of Phoenix and are written by Cara J. Stevens. This book is sure to delight fans of both authors, graphic novels, and Minecraft.

In particular, this adventure series is created especially for readers who love the fight of good vs. evil, magical academies like Hogwarts in the Harry Potter saga, and games like Minecraft, Terraria, and Pokemon GO. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

"The highly pixilated art reflects the distinctive animation-style of the game and looks almost like screen grabs, which will only endear it more to young readers who love to play Minecraft. The book reads like the first volume of a continuing adventure and will leave kids wanting more."Booklist on Quest for the Golden Apple
