Quick Summary:  Conan is king of Aquilonia, and people are plotting to depose him by reviving a long-dead wizard.  Conan is saved from death and travels the land seeking revenge and a way to regain his kingdom.

A decent fantasy read.  Nothing super spectacular to prioritize, but if you enjoy Conan it is a good story.

My Highlights

"I can not make you understand; I do not altogether understand myself, though I have sought wisdom in the silences of the high places for more years than I can remember. I cannot save you, though I would if I might. Man must, at last, work out his own salvation. Yet perhaps wisdom may come to me in dreams, and in the morn I may be able to give you the clue to the enigma."
