Conan's awakening was abrupt and crystal-clear. He possessed full knowledge of the battle in the mountains and he had a good idea of where he was . . . He lay on a velvet couch, his limbs loaded with chains even he could not break. The figure seated on a silver, thronelike chaire before him seemed unreal--with a suggestion of more than human knowledge.
"What the devil did you do to me?" demanded Conan.
I blasted your consciousness." answered Xaltotum. "How, you would not understand. Call it black magic, if you will."
Conan felt a chill along his spine . . .
I have yet to read this book. I'm on book 5 of the series, but I have 2 of copies of this one, so I figured I would share it. This series is GREAT so far, I rate the original Conan series head and shoulders above all the latest ones!! Book has water damage on the first 3 pages of the book(cover pages, not actual story pages)
