    A well-crafted middle issue that provides the right amounts of intrigue, drama, suspense, and action, this is an enjoyable Conan book. Zub's narration is good and his plotting excellent; Zircher's art is always clear and conveys suspense and violence with equal confidence and no little skill. All in all, a very good read.
