Traditional epic sword and sorcery--------
His life imperiled by the mistrust of a mad king, hunted by the armies of every nation of the Hyborian Age, the mighty Cimmerian, Conan, and a small band of loyal followers flee to the grim heights of the unmapped (and feared) Ilbars Mountains in search of a stronghold they can make their own.
Instead they find the midnight evil of the legendary Magus of the Sons of Yezm and his assassin followers . . . and even blacker horror spawned by the very hills themselves . . .
