The Savage Sword of Conan Volume 18

Written by: Chuck Dixon et al.

First line: The Zamoran dawn sheds crimson tears of a rebellion met with doom.

Why you should read this book: Fighting, death, thievery, death, sex, death, magic, death, betrayal, death, monsters, death, and more fighting, and more death. I should probably feel guilty about how much I enjoy slipping into the world of Conan, a world in which one man defeats gods (sometimes on a daily basis) and survives impossible odds every single day. Conan lives by a code, and while it wouldn't get you or me very far in our world, in Conan's world it always makes sense and it always ends with Conan surviving.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You demand accountability in your fantasy fiction.
