A Witch Shall Be Born

Robert E. Howard

Book Overview: 

The kingdom of Khauran is admittedly a small one, nestled between the vast desert and the plains, but it is blessed with an abundance of rich soil, hard working devoted inhabitants and much gold but most of all by a sweet young queen who is as wise and beneficent as she is beautiful. But then from out of nowhere, disaster strikes. A horrible witch (her evil twin sister) secretly replaces her and introduces devil worship, human sacrifice and other things too repulsive to mention. Conan, who was the captain of her guard is captured and crucified in the desert.

Book Excerpt: 
. . .Tomorrow I shall bid him order his troops to leave the kingdom. He himself shall be kept captive until they are over the border. Meantime, my soldiers man the walls of the city, and I have warned him that he will answer for any outrages perpetrated on the villagers or shepherds by his mercenaries.'

'He is confined in the south tower?' asked Salome.

'That is what I said. Why do you ask?'

For answer Salome clapped her hands, and lifting her voice, with a gurgle of cruel mirth in it, called: 'The queen grants you an audience, Falcon!'

A gold-arabesqued door opened and a tall figure entered the chamber, at the sight of which Taramis cried out in amazement and anger.

'Constantius! You dare enter my chamber!'

'As you see, Your Majesty!' He bent his dark, hawk-like head in mock humility.

Constantius, whom men called Falcon, was tall, broad-shouldered, slim-waisted, lithe and strong as pliant steel. He was handsome . . . Read More

This is a treat. Sword and sorcery at its best. One of my more favorite Conan tales, it has many facets and interesting storytelling elements. Many times Conan is mentioned almost as a supporting character, and then Howard brings him front and center in an awesome way. It's just splendid Howard stor

While the previous story felt quite familiar, though executed really well, this story feels much more original. It’s all about a queen whose evil twin impersonates her to take her throne. And in the end it’s up to Conan to save the day.

Este es el relato/novella en el que Conan se pasa un capítulo entero CRUCIFICADO EN EL DESIERTO hasta que le rescatan muy de milagro. Joder: es que SABES que es Conan y que no le va a pasar nada pero aún así hay tensión.

También aquí es donde hay un divertido enfrentamiento dialéctico entre el líder

A superb translation. Highly recommended.
