Burning Lands: A Darwin's World Novel


"Burning Lands" is a story of the battle between the oppressive suffocation that is civilization and the wild unpredictability that comes with real freedom. In a world two hundred years after a planetwide cataclysm, the descendants of a great war's survivors are only now pulling themselves out of the chaos of the aftermath. The descendants of the Great Enemy, stranded on these shores for generations, have unified and begun to rebuild a new civilization on the ashes of the old. Their hope is to bury the animosities of the past, a lasting feud that no longer seems relevant. Poised against them are the wild natives of this land, who still cling to fragments of their ancestral memory of freedom, and yearn for independence from these foreign "invaders".

Overall the story is good and I'm a big fan of post-apoc. fiction & gaming. It certainly provided more flavor & background for Darwin's World. However, the book is extremely wordy. There are over 400 pages and individual chapters are dozens of [...]

This novel is slow to start, and when it starts get interesting, the author seems to rush to the end. After all the character build-up, they have a dissatisfying end. Overall, the end left me a bit empty and depressed, instead of encouraged for the goo [...]

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.
