Conan's lustful desires again get him into a whole pile of trouble. This time the beautiful, golden haired, noble born Octavia, lures him into a fiendish trap set by his most powerful enemies and from which there seems to be no escape. But on the long deserted island of Xapur where he goes to capture this crafty beauty, it is not just mortal enemies that await him; Khosatral Khel a demon that crawled up from the abyss many eons ago and is of a substance as hard as iron has been awakened and is intent on crushing Conan and the woman like bugs for it's amusement. Conan is up against a being immensely stronger than he is and which he cannot kill with normal weapons. Will his mighty thews and muscles finally be crushed beneath the iron fists of this devil? Will Conan finally meet his match in this fierce but scantily clad woman or will she finally yield to his powerful kisses? Listen and discover the answer to these questions.

the Devil in Iron

(4.5 stars)

Very well read. The reader has an excellent clear style. Not altogether sure on his pronunciation of a few things, but overall he does a superb job. He reads at a very nice pace and has a pleasant tonal quality that make the story flow exceptionally. If your a fan of R.E. Howard you can't go wrong giving this book a listen.

excellent consistency.

(5 stars)

I've been a fan of Libra box for a while, and I love Conan even longer. this was a great rendition of the story, with excellent diction and pasting by the narrator. I also appreciate the fact that they kept one narrator through the entire story, so the story was more consistent throughout.

Still good

(4 stars)

Not,(in my opinion), one of Howard's best, but still a grand story, well worth the listen, or for that matter, to read again, and yet again, as I have many times over the years.

(5 stars)

This was a fun and breezy story. I could see the monster in my head the entire time. One of Howard’s best Conan tales.
