A frenetic fight with Conan's loyal friend from Poitain to open the book... and another secret mission to Nermesa. After some ordeals, he has no rest to find out about another conspiracy against the throne, which takes him into a hot pursuit to the borders of his liege's Cimmeria. Legendary beasts; nobility's treachery - again; magic of the Gray Lotus; a glimpse of King Conan fighting his enemies... this is all worthwhile to end the trilogy.
Just one problem: the stupid reviewer revealed the plot

Knaak's work is like a two-handed Viking axe cutting a swarth through grunt bodies. He isn't delicate, he isn't precise, but if you know what to expect, he will impress every time.

I liked his descriptions, but he has a problem with telegraphing his punches - if a character treats the main character badly to start with, this character will be a great boon and friend; if the character treats the main character with friendship to start with, this character will be an enemy. Every time.

Also, as often as the main character is knocked unconscious, he would have suffered brain damage.

I do get tired of the accidental heroism of the character.

Last in the trilogy and I was glad for it. These books were ok,but as bad as I hate to admit it, they ki d of pushed me away from reading anymore Conan books for a bit. Years later of course I went back and read the original books again, and was amazed, as I always am by Robert E. Howard's works. I wanted these to be far better books than they are. The author, Mr. Knaak has written some good books, but these just, in my opinion were not him at his best.
