(4.6 stars; 193 reviews)

Conan the Barbarian is employed by one of the civilized countries to help in it's push to claim lands from the primitive Picts. The Picts are not excited about the idea however. Old gods and mythical creatures are called up by the Pict witches to contest the invading army and Conan finds himself battling for his life amid the blood thirsty hordes that include saber-toothed tigers, 40 foot long venomous snakes and a demon from another dimension who is intent on crushing him. The huge dog Slasher makes an appearance here and distinguishes himself so well in a doomed battle to delay their forces that Conan openly praises his courage and pledges that 7 Pict heads will roll in his honor.

Reviews

Conan, nothing more to say...

(4 stars)

...but I do enjoy when Phil reads them, you can tell he is a fan.

Simply Amazing

(5 stars)

Howard, that widest of columns at the center of the cathedral of western fantasy literature, shines brightest in this story. While it lacks the brevity of his amazing Tower of the Elephant, it packs a far more powerful punch.

Great Book and Excellent Narration

I read this book almost 40 years ago. I then purchased every Conan book I could find! It's still my favorite story!

Great story. The reader is excellent in all parts except how he pronounces Conan's name.
