$8.99

The Stormshadow is a new Solomani Confederation ship, captained by the disgraced Lieutenant Simon Crowe.  Unfortunately, what was intended to be a series of trials for the Stormshadow suddenly turns into a six-jump patrol — and what should have been a simple patrol uncovers a conspiracy that might burn down the entire Solomani Rim.

Infantry assaults, political espionage, and naval battles are all part of a larger pattern that will write the future history of the Confederation … with the ill-equipped Stormshadow right at the center of them.

Quite an enjoyable read of battles set in the Solomani realm, with a fair share of things going on outside the ship to keep things multi-dimensional. Two shortcomings:

* I'd second Darren B's note below on the use of the ship's AI to relay comms, I can see that being used for port clearances but not much more -- people like the additional info they get from the speaker's intonation.

* In the final battle, there were a few times when "the corvette" was referred to when it would have been easier to track the battle if the name of the ship had been used instead.

I'll be looking for more by MJD, he writes well.

I've read Shadow of the Storm twice now, and enjoyed it both times. The author has a nice grasp on what it is to be Solomani, and shows that in his writing. The plot is engaging and kept me interested all through the book. The only thing that annoyed me was that the ship's AI was used to relay communications, not a Comms officer. Only a minor quip. I would have liked to see the vessels mentioned n the book detailed in an appendix, only because I can't find references to said craft elsewhere and would be interested in seeing their stats.

I recommend this novel highly for any Traveller fan, and in particular anyone gaming in the Solomani Rim.

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.
