Quest for the Golden Apple: An Unofficial Graphic Novel for Minecrafters
Phoenix dreams of seeing the world outside the high walls of her village. One day, she takes a risk--a quick hop over the walls--just to see the dark forest she's heard tales of. It is a magical forest, but Phoenix's forbidden trip unleashes a monster that attacks her brother, Xander. Her brother survives--but he's turned into a dreadful, moaning zombie! Now Phoenix has no choice. She must leave the village to find his cure. But beyond the cgates are dangers far worse than the slow night-time zombies. Phoenix will have to conquer treacherous enemies of both night and day--as well as her own fears--to find the enchanted golden apple, which is the only hope for her brother to return to his normal self.
