Azieran: Against the Drimlith

Watermarked PDF

Sir Vaiden Erro is a knight of the Malkan Order, sorcerers sworn to uphold the ever-expanding mandates of the Calantian bureaucracy.

Originally assigned to guard an ambassador in a foreign land, it is through a twist of fate that Vaiden finds himself charged to help a colleague, Alix, track down and destroy the headquarters of the Drimlith Cabal-those responsible for the recent assassination of a prominent politician.

Their course leads them through the borderlands of civility into Bludland, a country where both the customs and the people are wrought of extreme cruelty. Indeed, as much can be expected by a nation which reveres Bakkal, God of the Undead, above all others. Against this backdrop the two knights (escorted by a small troop of Bludland soldiers) travel across the land, through strange cities and even stranger circumstances. Vaiden is haunted by word that one of his own, a defected
Malkan Knight and old acquaintance, has taken up the Drimlith's cause. To further agitate matters, rumors spread that Bakkal has been slain, provoking social and religious unrest. Meanwhile the Drimlith discover they are being sought and retaliate with their own ruthless countermeasures. The journey culminates in an all-out bloodbath, where not only do Vaiden and Alix stab into the heart of the cabal, but they discover a guarded secret tied to Azieran's mysterious past.

Against the Drimlith is the first novel set in the richly detailed Azieran fantasy world, filled with innumerable dangers, political consequences, and magical intrigue. It is a grim world where civilization is on the wane, savage wastelands meet crumbling keeps, and men of virtue are a rarity. Within this context, dark fantasy takes on new meaning, epic in scope and elegant in design.

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.
