The Dreadmire Chronicles: Knight of the Demon Tree

Watermarked PDF

"BEWARE DARK POLLEN" read Alesia, staring at a rotting wooden sign. The halfling and the Knights knew they had passed through the sinking forest, and were now in Dreadmire. The paladin said a quick prayer, before they silently moved forward into the evil Perdition...

Based in the campaign world of the popular Dreadmire role-playing game accessory, three-time Darrell Award winner, author Elizabeth Donald, takes its elaborate characters on a daring journey through the malevolent swamp: Kancethedrus, the clumsy paladin; Alesia, a voluptuous red-haired Creep; Angiss, the wise halfling prophet; Wynter, a lost elven druid; her lover Tam, a Moor Knight gone rogue; and the dysfunctional elven wizard, Salia; all on a quest to destroy the legacy of the mysterious Witch Hammer. Harrowed by unspeakable dead things and a myriad of strange swamp monsters, an unwitting group of adventurers attempts to save the sinking forest they fearfully call, Dreadmire.

Elizabeth Donald's first novel, a vampire mystery titled Nocturnal Urges, was published in 2004. It won the Darrell Award and was a finalist for the Prism Award. The sequel, titled A More Perfect Union, was released in 2005. Both books were combined in a trade paperback titled, Nocturne. The third vampire book, Abaddon, won the Darrell Award as well. Elizabeth has written a number of short stories and essays that have appeared in a variety of online and print publications. One such story, Wonderland, won the Darrell Award in 2006. Her short-story collection, Setting Suns, was also published in 2006. Current projects include The Cold Ones, a zombie novella coming out in fall 2009. In the real world, Elizabeth is a newspaper reporter in the St. Louis are, and writes CultureGeek, a pop-culture review blog & column at

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.
