The Saga of the Jack of Spades


Jack’s days are numbered. Surrounded by criminals, assassins, knaves, and usurpers, everyone is out to get him, and that’s just members of his own court.

For centuries, The Four Kingdoms, the Hearts, Clubs, Diamonds, and Spades, waged war upon each other. To stem the bloodshed, the Four of a Kind, an order of wise and holy men, were entrusted to keep the peace at any cost.

But the wheels of war are turning once more. Bands of criminals amass in the forests of Spade territory, fleets of sea-mad pirates pillage the Heart coasts, and the Four of a Kind, corrupted by their ill-gotten power, play at war. 

With the Spade King in poor health, Jack, the young Prince of Spades, is next in line to inherit the throne. All eyes are on Jack, and he is eager to prove to the royal court and himself, that he’s worthy of the crown. As a test of his worth, the King, under the direction of his conniving advisor, the Ace of Spades, grants Jack the role of Minister of Executions, a death sentence to those that bear the title. It is up to Jack to round up the enemies of the Spade Crown and deliver the King’s justice. As the King’s enemies grow more desperate, their murderous aim turns to Prince Jack.

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.
