First publication in any form by TOR 1989. Used book. Wear marks on front and back (se pictures). Someone wrote a quote by Conan on the inside of the cover. Some browning/yellowing to the pages.
A young Conan’s prospects for a domestic existence are destroyed, along with his intended fiance, by the renegade Taharka of Keshan. To achieve vengeance, the Cimmerian joins forces with a one-eyed warrior woman, Mad Kalya, also wronged by Taharka’s outlaws. The couple pursue their enemies across several nations, from Croton’s fighting pits to the Ophirian plains, overtaking them in time and again only to see Taharka slip through their fingers. The chase ultimately culminates in a battle to the death.
