Beneath The Mask


Duty's Consequence

When Kelly Patterson was appointed to The Mask, it seemed like the perfect
distraction from her sire’s abandonment, and a way for the Toreador neonate to
prove her loyalty to clan and Camarilla. Tasked with protecting the Masquerade
and granted sweeping powers to do so, she was instrumental in exposing, and
ultimately destroying, the very Prince Merik who appointed her.

Now, almost a year later, The Mask is called upon to once again investigate and
put a stop to a series of grisly murders that threaten the Masquerade and the
safety of the kindred in Milwaukee. As the pressure and publicity grows, Kelly
must confront and understand the nature of her new prey, and so bring it to
ground, even as she must reconcile what her loyalty to the Camarilla and her
Prince means.

As Kelly struggles to balance the demands of her heart, her ties to the mortal
world, and her duty, she will come to understand that beauty is not the only thing
that lies in the eye of the beholder; sometimes, evil does too.

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.
