Close but he's not Robert Howard
Christian and Amy
Chris - Ah Conan,
Though written after creator Robert E. Howard's death, Roberts does a good job bringing the same pacing a 'magic' familiar with most Conan tales.
It's a longer tale them most of Howard's stories, but Roberts keeps things moving, and does a great job keeping interest and bringing elements to a head.

Also of note, Robert Jordan had written two Conan novels which I have not yet had a chance to read. Could be good fun-
'The Conan chronicles' and 'The further chronicles of Conan'
Conan pastiche.
