"Arcanis is in civil war. The Margravine has been deposed. A plague rages. Sent by TerraFormation with a vaccine to help the war-torn planet, Miles Sheffield is reunited with his best friend and his niece, offering them refuge on Earth. When Pallas and the other women on the FSS Clara Barton are abducted and sold into slavery, Aric, Miles, and the crew begin a search taking them through the Emeraunt Galaxy and beyond to the law-forsaken depths of the Fringes. There, on the desert planet Bel-Ammon, Aric will find not only his missing wife but an old enemy he never expected to see again. He'll launch a fight to the death for possession of his own wife and make a decision affecting not only the Throne of Arcanis but the eventual fate of his own family."

Product Information
Scanned image
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.
