Skein of Shadows: Vendetta



Elves have human generations to perfect their craft, and Arastin's chosen profession is death. An expert assassin, he's orchestrated the demise of hundreds, but the years of constant vigilance have worn on him. It's time to give up the trade but he's approached for one last job: assassinate a member of the Iceskull League. A vile group lead by white dragons, the League has plagued Crown on numerous occasions, and more importantly -- ages ago they drove the elves from their ancestral lands and destroyed their way of life.

The hook is baited, there's no one better suited – it’s a matter of revenge. But the job is a sham, Arastin finds himself an unwilling pawn in a complex plot that threatens all of Crown, and he hates being had. The fate of the city rests on this unlikely hero's shoulders.

About the Author

Nathan is a hobbyist writer-errant currently residing in Georgia. He's enjoyed writing ever since high school, but he followed the path of the dollar and got his degree in engineering. Since then he's been writing on and off, but just for fun. He's only recently – since 2006 – considered writing professionally. He pays the bills through his engineering day job, so he spends a lot of time editing his work before he submits it.

He prefers writing sci fantasy, pulp, and hardboiled detective stories, and regularly tries to blend all his favorite genres.

This book has a promising start, and continuously maintains its pace. Fast moving and interesting, Vendetta leaves me bowled over. It's really fun to try to spot references to characters from the other Wandering Men books, such as Tenet, the oltreggan, [...]

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.
