A good, rollicking Conan adventure! Conan is the leader of a mercenary band who ends up in the employ of Nemedia and has to deal with their enemies from without...and an evil wizard within. This was written by Robert Jordan, acclaimed author of the Wheel of Time. So you know this is going to be better than your average Conan novel. He writes Conan a little smarter than Robert E. Howard, but I think in some ways it makes it better. If you're a Conan or Jordan fan, give this one a read.
