A mysterious curse lingers, following Conan as he attempts to return to his homeland, and a great darkness looms ahead in the doomed city of Yaralet. This latest collection in Dark Horse's smart, innovative Conan series finds the cunning Cimmerian chased by both unfinished business from his past and a strange novice magician who seeks to deliver a dire warning to the wandering barbarian. A great evil from Conan's past moves ever closer while unfathomable terrors awaken and come into view. Conan is, of course, eager to meet both head on!
* "[Truman] knows Conan. He knows how the barbarian speaks. He knows how he acts. He knows how he swings his blade and thinks at the same time. Conan has been written as little more than mindless eye candy . . . [but] never by Truman. He has love and respect for the character and this comes through in every issue he scribes."
