Welcome to Christmas in July! In celebration, this digital title has been marked down by up to 40%! For more of Santa's savings, visit our Christmas in July sale page.

Clarke is a quiet, peaceful world, and Major Galdrian has resigned himself to a quiet, uneventful career in the planetary security force. That changes when an archaeological team digging in the planet’s radioactive wastelands unleashes a bioweapon from the distant past, creatures that both slaughter the living and despoil the dead. Both acts are horrifying in a society built around the idea of preserving and ultimately resurrecting the deceased, and the psychopomps of the theocracy give the young infantry officer the task of hunting the monsters down.

It’s a mission that will take Galdrian from the desolation of the wastelands to a little girl’s hospital room to the halls of power, and from obedience through suspicion to rebellion. Because there’s more going on than meets the eye, and he can only track down the ghouls by uncovering the truth – then he just needs to survive.

This story comes in Mobi, ePub and PDF formats.

A decent story, a nice and unique Theocratic world, and decent characters. Unfortunately it was shorter than I expected. Much shorter. Major Galdrian is an interesting character that I would like to see more of, either on Clarke or off-world. The 3 file types cover most e-readers as well as any browser.

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.
