Publisher's Summary

Castle Joiry had been taken. The heavy boots of invaders rang in the hallways, and the arching ceiling echoed back the clash of falling swords. Still struggling violently, Joiry's commander was brought before the conqueror. Standing tall, armor running red with blood, Jirel of Joiry refused to surrender her home and vowed to her enemy that his victory would cost him his life, and more. That very night, Joiry's lady crept by secret ways to the castle's deepest dungeon. Laying her strong hands upon a forbidden door, she bade farewell to the world of treacherous men, then walked of her own will through the doorway and into Hell in search of revenge. A haunting, powerful, surrealistic fantasy by a true grand master of the genre.

written in 1934

This story appeared in Weird Tales in 1934 and has the look and feel of a Conan story. This story is all about texture and feel. The author jumps right into the action and sends you into a dark and strange world. After the beginning it takes a long time for anything else to happen. If you like Robert E. Howard, H.P. Lovecraft or Jack Williamson then you will like this story, although I believe it took too long to tell too simple of a story. The music in this recording adds a lot to the mood of the book, my problem with it was the narration. The narrator does a lot of whispering, even though the back ground music is loud. It was hard to hear in parts. You want to listen to this in your quiet living room, not on a busy highway. I gave this a low rating because I do not care for flowery descriptive language, you on the other hand may like it. It is just a matter of taste and many people I believe will feel this is a masterpiece.
