Fear breeds the unlikeliest of allies . . . 

The mercenary Rutger Shaw doesn’t have many friends, but to the ones he’s earned he’s loyal to the death. That’s just what his partner Taryn di la Rovissi is afraid of, and it’s one reason she’s not thrilled when Rutger dodges another contract so they can help out his old Steelhead captain, Brunner Ainsworth. Together with Brunner, Rutger and Taryn join a Highborn army and march to liberate the Llaelese town of Dunlyf from Khadoran oppressors. Yet the mercenary force finds Dunlyf deserted, with no sign of its people or what happened to them and its buildings strangely intact.

When Brunner’s squad goes missing as well, Rutger and Taryn’s search leads them to stumble across an old enemy, Harlan Versh, a zealous witch hunter and member of the infamous Order of Illumination. It soon becomes clear that a mysterious evil is plaguing this region and Harlan Versh may be able to help the mercenaries track down their friend and the missing people of Dunlyf. A tenuous alliance is struck, and Rutger, Taryn, and Harlan Versh begin to uncover clues that point to a vast and deadly threat lurking beneath their feet. 

Note: This digital edition includes the PDF, ePub and Mobi (Kindle) versions of the book.

this is what roped me into the fiction accompanying the Iron Kingdoms...

The story is the 4 part Fiction that accompanied the Machinations League of 2013, and I have to tell you, I was more excited about the new fiction releases than I was the actual league and rules set. The overall story is very well written and really grabs you and pulls you in. A great way to spend a quiet night would be reading this story.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
