First hailing Conan as a liberator after he annihilated Aquilonia's foes on the battlefield, common folk and politicians alike now rally to unseat the Cimmerian from his stolen throne. Conspirators plot to kill King Conan and take the crown for themselves, but their schemes pale in comparison to a terror waiting quietly in the wings — Thoth-Amon, an enemy who has haunted Conan his whole adult life and whose wicked aspirations dwarf those of maneuvering politicians!

  1. I don't like it. I don't like Thoth-Amon made a personal enemy of Conan. That's changing the whole sense of the original tale. Conan just happened to be in the same place as the man who the stygian wanted to kill.

    His orders to the demon were: "kill him and all who are with him". His intended victim was NOT Conan.
