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. Peace has finally been restored in Xenos, but Phoenix longs to return home to her family of miners. Sheltered by the monks who guard the border world, she spends her days searching for clues about her real identity. Just when Phoenix is losing hope that she'll ever discover the truth, two miner ambassadors arrive at the monastery, looking for a girl from their ancient legends who is said to wear an enchanted Ender eye necklace and is destined to save their village. Could that girl be Phoenix? Determined to follow every clue that could set her free, Phoenix decides to join them on their quest to restore peace to their land. But along the way, zombie pirates attack, capturing Phoenix and taking her to the Nether. Now it's up to Xander to convince the villagers and miners to put aside their differences and come to Phoenix's rescue. The fate of their world depends on it. Fans of Minecraft will be on the edge of their seats in this thrilling follow-up to Quest for the Golden Apple and Revenge of the Zombie Monks!
