    Cleary, Conan novels are about the life and times of our hero, and this particular title delves into his life as the general of an army of rebellion trying to take Aquilonia.So, as a general, Conan is portrayed planning troop movements, leading skirmishes, and overseeing the campaign against King Numedides The latter is crazy and seeks immortality through his dark sorcerer, Thulandra Thuu The wizard is actually ruling the country, the king but a figurehead.I won t spoil the tale Suffice it to Cleary, Conan novels are about the life and times of our hero, and this particular title delves into his life as the general of an army of rebellion trying to take Aquilonia.So, as a general, Conan is portrayed planning troop movements, leading skirmishes, and overseeing the campaign against...

    A good but conflicted Conan readDe camp turns in a better than average Conan tale unfortunately, in this one, it seems like the author couldn t decide if he was writing a Conan adventure or a military fiction Most of the book reads like Tom Clancy wrote a medieval war story T...

    Most complaints about this book is that Conan doesn t take part in much of the action of this book In fact, there is not much action at all It s mostly military units marching over vast distances and long periods of times, with stops along the way and skirmishes between Conan s rebel army or mad King Numedides royalist legions At one point, Conan is even incapacited for almost a month and not even able to get out of bed But I find this all appropriate for this story It is after all the even Most complaints about this book is that Conan doesn t take part in much of the action of this book In fact, there is not much action at all It s mostly military units marching over vast distances and long periods of times, with stops along the way and skirmishes between Conan s rebel army or mad King Numedides royalist legions At one point, Conan is even incapacited for almost a month and not even able to get out of bed But I find this all appropriate for this story It is after all the event inferred in REH s.The Phoenix on the Sword how did Conan usurp the throne from Aquilonia s king It does make sense that he would form an army himself, and even though he s not Aquilonian he did get a great reputation while being a General in their army on the Pictish frontier skirmishes Of course having to use predetermined events and characters is a bit limiting, but I found the book enjoyable and approriate to the subject I am a harsh c...

    So from some of the best fantasy I ve read in awhile to well, to Conan A friend on the Boyz Trip was reading one of the Conan books, and I thought I d give one a try just to see what they were like Had a hard time picking one the whole timeline is kind of confusing It ended up that my library only had one of the books on the shelf, anyway Conan the Liberator, a later title by L Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter It was kind of hard to pick up the thread of where in his career Conan was a So from ...

    Esta un poco aburrido y la verdad es que Conan aparece y hace poco durante el libro pero es parte importante de la historia del Cimmerio Aqu se relata, por fin, que ocurri exactamente con el rey Numedides y como es que C...

    These licensed Conan novellas always mystify me The character clearly inspires a great deal of passion in certain audiences, to the point where they are clamoring to seeof his adventures And yet the licensed novels seem to be completely devoid of the charm of Robert E Howard ma...

    One of the dryer additions to the early De Camp Carter pastiches It feels like a gap filling exercise, to explain Conan s rise to the throne of Aquilonia something which Howard himself never did It serves its purpose without sparkling.
