As with all books in TOR's "Conan" series, any resemblance the main character has to Robert E. Howard's creation is purely coincidental. Despite that, however, this is a well-crafted sword & sorcery novel about a warrior whose mercenary band is betrayed by their employer. The band then strikes back against the traitor's army and pet wizard.
The main problem with the book is the climax of the story. *** SPOILER *** Like many entries in this series, the author sets up a wizard as the main threat to Conan's plans and then builds towards Conan destroying the character. Unfortunately, Conan screws up only to be saved by a magical creature with little connection to the rest of the story.
A good read if you like this series, though.
