Atilus the Slave: The Saga of Atilus, Book One

Multiple File Formats

Set against the immense decadence of Imperial Rome, the story of Atilus depicts the glory, the spectacle, and the blood-lust of the gladitorial games in all their savagery.

In the third year of the reign of Claudius, a young boy, Atilus Cindras, watches in terror as the Roman legions plunder, rape, and route the proud Icení warriors of Britain. When they leave, they take the young men with them as slaves--and Atilus is among them. Trained first as a house slave, then as a secutor in the School for Gladíators, Atilus soon learns how to survive both slavery and the arena.

Using his sword and wits with fierce and deadly skill, Atílus becomes a favorite of the Roman mob. But even that's not enough. Atilus fights with only one goal in mind: to attain the rarely awarded rudis--the wooden sword from the Emperor's hands that will grant him his freedom!

The first book in the thrilling Atilus series.

Scanned image
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.
