Sword Bearer

Multiple File Formats

You swing a staff until you're ready to swing a sword. Then you go on all kinds of adventures - fighting monsters, casting spells and saving damsels in distress. At least that's how it's supposed to work, but I didn't believe a word of it.


Tired of his controlling father treating him like a child, sixteen-year-old Anders Tomason yearns for grown-up adventure. Until the day when he opens a magic portal by accident, and a Kriek girl bursts into his locked room with a chemical warlock hot on her trail. Now Anders will discover just how much his parents had been protecting him from, and at what cost. 

Because the adventure is upon him, and it's an adventure full of danger, full of blood, fire, demons and Evil. To face it, he'll need the sword given him by his blademaster, need the ancient words his grandfather bequeathed to him on his deathbed. Need the song that runs in his own blood, in his veins.

But will blade, word and blood be enough?

In a world where ancient civilizations and their technology lie in ruin and their languages lie forgotten, and where remembered words from long dead tongues hold power for those who can speak them - in a world where unspeakable evil is personified by not just by demons, but by the unholy chemical mages who invoke them with guttural chant, with fire and acrid smoke - shameful family secrets will merge with age-old prophecy to push Anders into a dangerous destiny he isn't the least prepared to face. Yet face it he must.

A sword will be reforged, battles will be fought, friends will be made and lost, secrets revealed. And blood will be spilled.

Anders will become both swordsman and sorcerer. And, ready or not, he will become a man.

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.
