Publisher's Summary

"Find the heart of your kingdom."
With these cryptic words, the sylvan witch, Zelata, sends Conan, the barbarian once-and-future king of Aquilonia, forth on a quest that will take him back along all the long, weary trails he once trod on his way to the kingship of the greatest of the Hyborian nations. Along the way he'll battle traitorous noblemen, crafty bandits, scheming merchants, bloodthirsty pirates, mysterious assassins from the East, eldritch vampires from the tomb, and powerful Stygian wizard-priests - and in the end he'll face an enemy called up from the land's nightmare-haunted past, an evil, ancient wizard who plans to bring back his 3,000-year-old empire of blood and sorcery....

The master of sword and sorcery at his best...

Born on a mountain. Raised in a cave. Truckin' and Robert Howard's prose is all I crave

Great book, but get the complete set

Finn J.D. John's performance is astounding and is the true voice of Conan for me. Howard's prose is magical and his training in poetry really shows. The one criticism I have is that this book and performance is included in the complete collection, also narrated by John.
