    I Loved it!

    I'll be honest I am a fairly recent discoverer of conan. I have only got mt hands on two original conan books by Robert E Howard. But I have read conan novels of other authors, and I did not find them to be that entriging. So when I saw this book I was a little scepticle. All I can say is that Loren L Colemen won me over. I have already bought the second volumes and I am going to read them as soon as possible. This is a great cimmerian tale!

    Fans of Robert E. Howard

    If you like Robert E. Howard's writing style then you will really like what Loren L. Coleman has put together with this new Cimmerian character. My complements to Mr. Coleman for an intereting plot with Howard-like graphics. Mr. Coleman's character, Kern is more of a tragic hero versus Conan. Kern stays in Cimmeria even after being cast out of his clan, unlike Conan who left. Kern fights for Cimmeria, trying to unite the Cimmerian clans against Nothern raiders. All the while Kern is discovering his heritage is Ymirish. The same as the norther raiders he fights so hard to push out Cimmeria. This is the first book of a three part series and I've read the first two books. I am here to order the third book.

    Excellent Conan tale

    To the villagers of Gaud in the Kingdom of Cimmeria, winter feels like it will never end. Food is being rationed and the people go on raids seeking bounty held by others. The animals have not yet appeared so there is no hunting for fresh meat and the Vanir raiders from the north steal what little the clans have. --- When Cul becomes chief, he exiles the weakest of Clan Gaudt as well as Kern ¿Wolf-Eye¿ who people distrust because of his appearance. Unlike the dark blued eyed clansmen, he has pale skin and amber glowing eyes with white hair. While on the trek to bury the dead clan chief, he sees the men of Vanir raiding villages and he returns to warn his former clansmen and help them in their fight. He decides to follow the raiders and bring back the hostages and his little band travels north and west into the heart of the land of the men of Vanir determined to fight the men who want to destroy the clans. --- This takes place at the time Conan is king and magic is a fighting skill used in battle. The leader of the enemy Grimnir is said to be immortal, a son of Ymir who has the strength of many men and is a friend of the gods his people worship. There is plenty of action and gory battle scenes but the most exciting part of this storyline is the protagonist who goes from outcast to hero and leader. Sword and sorcery fans as well as readers who love the Conan stories will have a lot of fun reading this exceptional tale.--- Harriet Klausner
