The Burning Crown

Watermarked PDF

Book 4 in the Stone Blade series.

Failing a mission can cost Micah Stone his life, that's nothing new, but now success may cost him his best friend! Lately, the League Navy has seen a suspicious increase in the number of defective parts they receive. These parts only fail during combat, when they're needed most, and often with fatal consequence. Micah and his teammate Vera Kidwell begin tracing this trail in an under-the-garble mission to find the source of the bad equipment. It leads them to the Starcrown Sector, a long-time League member whose government is organized around a King and his Noble Houses. Micah and Vera must then navigate this labyrinthine tangle of intrigue, hidden agendas, plots and counter-plots in order to discover who is sabotaging the League. When Micah delves too deeply he makes a horrible discovery: the thing standing between them and success is nothing less than the life of his friends!

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.
