The Dark Eye - The Molted Serpent


A Blessed One has been murdered! Two years ago, a charismatic priest from the north caused a great stir in the Horasian Empire. He became famous for demanding that knowledge be made available to everybody and gathering a growing community of followers devoted to mutual enlightenment. Now the Blessed One is dead—murdered by one of his own disciples.

What caused his young student to turn against him? The killer’s trail leads to Vinsalt, “City of a Hundred Towers.” But the Imperial capital is much more than a colorful metropolis. It is also a den of conspirators and criminals, where nothing is as it appears. A dangerous plot unfurls against a backdrop of ancient monuments, mechanical wonders, and glorious temples, threatening everyone from the dirtiest alleys of Old Bosparan to the gleaming heights of political and clerical power.

Success and failure are two faces of the same coin in the city of Vinsalt, and a blasphemous murder is only the first in a string of events with far-reaching consequences for the Horasian Empire.

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.
