    But he may not have grown powerful enough yet to make a difference. Under the poncho? Cabal is not a nice man, although he has his redeeming moments. But he is too great a prize to be given up so easily and one of the Chaos sorcerers raises an army and attacks the city where our hero has been quietly trying to develop his own powers.

    The violence gets out of control, however, and a young woman and a musician have some adventures as they attempt to escape in the aftermath. Rival sorcerers want to stop him or at least arrive ahead of time because the cave will be the scene of a spell that will make one sorcerer all powerful. A long dead warrior is brought back from the dead and the world is in danger until Conan ends the threat. This was quite enjoyable.

    The two chief villains are also well developed characters and the pursuit covers multiple nations. This is a book that sticks with you, a character who is far from perfect, but all the better for it. I suspect most people would like this much more if they were already familiar with their previous adventures, so I suggest looking for The Unnoticeables and The Empty Ones before trying this one.
