The Shadows are Searching...

The assassin Ronan hunts through the city of Hearne, desperate to find the young thief Jute. But there are greater powers at work, and both Ronan and Jute are unwitting pawns in an ancient struggle of deadly importance. 

Captured and imprisoned in the catacombs beneath the city of Hearne, Jute frantically attempts to break out of his dungeon before it's too late. On the run, tracked by shadows and shadowhounds, Jute and his friends flee the city for the wilderness of the north.

All the while, the wind is coming alive inside of him. But, before Jute can figure out how to unleash its power, he needs to learn how to fly. Even more important, he must learn who his enemy is and what it is plotting in the darkness.

The epic fantasy saga that began with The Hawk and His Boy, and continued with The Shadow at the Gate, concludes with The Wicked Day.

Product Information
File Size:
16.52 MB
Original electronic
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.
