The Eyes of Death

Watermarked PDF

“A fox-named king, a sylfaea minstrel who walks with demigods and a mysterious man of silver are given a quest by the Seeress of Glass. They are to journey to the Hold of Ashes and help its people against the enemy that besieges the city – a foe that has the eye of death. Unknown to them, they will be the last to enter the tunnels and the last to fall to the consort of the Mother of Madness. After he takes their eyes, their skin and their bones, he will complete her house and call his mother and consort to Earth. It is up to three unlikely heroes and one chalyvos who wants to wash away his shame, to face the eye of death and conquer it, lest darkness rules the land.”

This book is a 32.000 word novella that fits snugly into the Heroic Fantasy genre. This is a tale which takes place in the middle of the over-arching story about the triumphs and tragedies that shape the lives of the protagonists. It may seem counter-intuitive to begin a tale in the middle of the greater story-arc but I'm in favour of such an introduction. Although there is a clear beginning, it is not the true beginning and although there is an end to the tale, it is not the end of the greater story. Those of you who enjoy this fantasy tale be assured that all the tales will be told and that the story will unfold.

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.
