Brought to you by Penguin.

Learn the tragic origins of the wicked Arch-Illager in this official Minecraft novel, a prequel to Minecraft Dungeons!

Brave heroes have banded together to take a perilous journey through the war-torn Overworld to defeat the Arch-Illager and his formidable army. But how did that army come to be? And just where did the Arch-Illager come from?

The terrible truth behind the Arch-Illager is that he never asked for ultimate power. Known as Archie, this little Illager is bullied by his fellow Illagers and mistrusted by fearful Villagers. Archie only ever wanted a place to call home, but he finds himself shunned by all. As he wanders through deep forests and up craggy mountains, he stumbles upon a dark cavern - with a sinister secret waiting inside.

Archie discovers an object that whispers to him promises of power: the Orb of Dominance. With it, Archie realises he can wield incredible magic and reshape a world that turned its back on him. All he needs to do is exactly what it tells him....

After all, it’s called the Orb of Dominance for a reason, right? But is it named for the way Archie uses it - or is it using him?

It is really cool, but sad that there's a cliffhanger. I wonder if there is another part 🤔
