Broken Gods

Watermarked PDF

It begins with a massacre on a city bus and the shooter's suicide. A mysterious man in black watches the spectacle, then moves on, pondering about a great battle soon to come.

Elsewhere, emotionally scarred 18-year-old Sabrina Matthews is offered the chance to become the living avatar of a goddess and jumps at the chance despite a depraved cost. Following a horrific dream-vision, Sabrina awakens to find that she has apparently murdered a young boy while she slept. Spurred on by the voice of her goddess, she flees into the darkness.

A year later, an amnesiac young man named Jacob dreams that he is walking through the landscape of hell itself, and then awakens in a filthy alley, covered in blood, his hand immersed in the chest cavity of a corpse missing its eyes and heart. A man in black emerges from the shadows, introduces himself as a god named "Jack," and informs Jacob that he has been granted great power, but at a price. After Jack saves him from the police, Jacob accepts the offer, despite the need to feed on souls to use his own power.

Sabrina seduces the two people closest to her as acolytes in her new cult, and she and Jacob begin a game of cat and mouse that could spell Armageddon if not contained. While Sabrina builds a cult for her mistress, slaughtering "sinners" in the name of the dark goddess, Jacob uses power over fortune and chaos to oppose her.

Across town a jaded homicide detective named Frank Hill calls his old flame, forensic psychologist Lexie Miller, to help him catch a serial killer unlike any he's encountered. Their rekindled love could be their salvation or cost them everything, for Lexie, too, is called to power and darkness by a beautiful woman in black, and Frank will receive a call of his own before the end: the ability to bring together the warring factions and stand against the machinations of the would-be gods.

The conflict escalates and the body count rises, from a nightclub massacre to an all-out war in the streets between the congregations of three suburban churches, until the motley group at last meets face-to-face. The battle comes to an explosive conclusion as one by one, the humans turn on their otherworldly masters. In the end, with the help of a true Goddess, Sabrina finds redemption by turning on her demonic patron and becomes the savior of humankind in a bloody showdown with the dark queen of Hell who started it all.

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.
