A Witch Shall Be Born

Gelesen von Phil Chenevert

(4,472 Sterne; 230 Bewertungen)

The kingdom of Khauran is admittedly a small one, nestled between the vast desert and the plains, but it is blessed with an abundance of rich soil, hard working devoted inhabitants and much gold but most of all by a sweet young queen who is as wise and beneficent as she is beautiful. But then from out of nowhere, disaster strikes. A horrible witch (her evil twin sister) secretly replaces her and introduces devil worship, human sacrifice and other things too repulsive to mention. Conan, who was the captain of her guard is captured and crucified in the desert. From there the incomparable story telling skill of Robert E. Howard takes us on a spiral of exciting intrigue, battle, blood, demons, and final retribution. (summary by phil chenevert) (2 hr 5 min)

Well Read

(3 Sterne)

The story is a little short, Conan is not the primary character as much as usual and I assume it was a short story. But it is enjoyable and well read once again by Mythra!

classic Conan

(5 Sterne)

brutal and straight to the spearpoint. I'm not sure why Conan is always stronger, faster, tougher, and better than his enemies, and the fantasy of being this guy is the book's draw.

Good Short Conan Story

(4 Sterne)

Good story & a good reading. The only flaw is one of the chapters has a double recording. A little annoying.

Great adventure

Tho, I love Phil Chenovert as a narrator....his lilting and up/down cadence just does not quite fit with a Conan epic.

One of the best

The reading was well done and did credit to another gem from the mind of Robert E Howard

Thanks so much Mr Chenovert
