The Lost Sword

Watermarked PDF

A blind seer's prophecy sends young Prince Delvin of Sea Reach Hold on a desperate quest for the magical sword, Havoc. Delvin has one day to retrieve the sword. If he fails, a fleet of pirates will attack his home and kill everyone he loves. The ancient family heirloom is said to be on Blackthorn, a volcanic island where the rivers run with evil magic, the shadows conceal enemies, ghosts walk and the boundaries of past, present and even future do not hold. And then there's the dragon.

In the Paths of Doom series the reader must choose which path the story will take. Each tale presents both challenges and choices. Every path will lead to an exciting conclusion, but each story has but one happy ending. The wrong choice leads only to doom. Return to the world of choice-driven adventure fiction from this exciting new series of books for young readers!

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.
