The Minecraft adventures continue in this spectacular follow-up to Invasion of the Overworld! When Invasion of the Overworld ended, Gameknight999, a real-life Minecraft user trapped inside the game he loves to play, and his friend Crafter found themselves on a new Minecraft server. Knowing the lives of all those within Minecraft--as well as those in the physical world--are depending on them, Gameknight and Crafter will need to search the land to recruit an NPC army if they are to stand a fighting chance. Malacoda is the King of the Nether, a terrible ghast that has a vile, evil plan for the destruction of Minecraft. His massive army includes blazes, magma cubes, zombie pigmen, and wither skeletons, and his plans will take one of Gameknight's closest friends from him. Gameknight999 will have to sift through the chaos and put his Minecraft-playing skills to the test to solve the mysterious disappearance of all the crafters. But the battles Gameknight fought on the previous server and the enemy he faced have left him doubting his strength and his knowledge, and he'll need to reach deep inside himself to summon all the courage he has if he's to have any shot at victory. Epic battles, terrible monsters, heartwarming friendships, and spine-tingling suspense ...Battle for the Nether takes the adventures of Gameknight999 to the next level in a nonstop roller-coaster ride of adventure.
