Finally complete! I read this book in its three separate installments, and let me say that I am 1) a Robert Jordan fan, and 2) a Conan fan, so this was a great synergy in my opinion. However, these are a far cry from the Wheel of Time, and if he had written these books in that style (or had been given the freedom to do so), I feel that this could have been a very different series. Maybe he wrote the WoT as a catharsis from this episodic sequence of mind-numbing stereotypes, but as a WoT fan firs ...more

This collection of tales was much better than the previous collection. Conan doesn't act like as terrible of a human being. Yes, he is still very much a chauvinist. Yes, he is still very much a man whore and womanizer. But in this collection of tales he comes off more like a James Bond and less like...well, his former self. I don't know how to explain this phenomenon, it just is...what it is.

Womanizing aside, Conan faced up against some really awesome villains in these three stories. Robert Jord

The three stories are actually quite similar in the sense that the flow and the big picture are the same. There's the woman, there's the intermediate difficulty, and then there's the villain. On the whole, they're interesting enough short stories to stand on their own so, not too bad.

Loved the Wheel of Time, Cheyenne Raiders and The Fallon Blood.

Didn't love Conan... I guess its just too much on the swords and sorcery side of the genre for me. Too many empty calories I guess.

Much better read than the Legends of Kern books that I had been reading. This author is a true master of Fantasy genre, and spun tales that were worthy of reading.

Not that great. I read it because it was written by Robert Jordan but it was not nearly as good as the wheel of time books.

I love anything written by Robert Jordan - not the biggest Conan fan, but this book is worth reading for the fantasy and silliness! A good read so far!

Very good interpretations of the Conan saga, though you still cannot beat the original Robert E. Howard stories.

What can I say? Conan is Conan. I found that Robert Jordan did a good job in keeping with the style of the original Conan stories. I enjoyed all three stories.
