Conan becomes the leader of an army of rebels, brave warriors who thought their battles would be fought with spear and sword, axe and dagger. Dark clouds loom ahead for the people of Aquilonia, and only Conan can save them. In this they were mistaken, for their greatest foe is not the army of Aquilonia, but the vile sorcerer Thulandra Thuu.

Conan, known for his heroism, is chosen to command a rebel army opposing Numedides, the mad king of Aquilonia, and his swaggering sorcerer, Thulandra Thuu

De camp turns in a better than average Conan tale unfortunately, in this one, it seems like the author couldn’t decide if he was writing a Conan adventure or a military fiction. Most of the book reads like Tom Clancy wrote a medieval war story. There is enough high fantasy here to keep you entertained and pass the time. On the whole, it is light years ahead of most of the lesser Conan pastiche works.

I am coming right off a Robert E. Howard run of ALL his Conan stories. It was my first time reading them, when I came across this book. I had read it was the long awaited story of how Conan became king. I'll get straight to the point. It's boring, Conan is barely in it, there is little action, and the attempts at writing like Howard fail horribly. To give you an idea of how boring it is, the first action scene takes place 55 pages in. The next doesn't show up for about another 50 pages. Howard could have written three great Conan stories with over 100 pages all with dozens of great action scenes. Conan in this story doesn't even feel like Conan. At one point he actually calls someone "my lord." Seriously. Anyone who has read Howard knows that isn't the real Conan. I'd skip this book if you were trying to get into Conan. Go buy "The Complete Chronicles of Conan" by Howard. The only reason to read this is if you're a HUGE Conan fan and you want to see how he became king. Even then it might not be a good idea.

A good account of how Conan became King by his own hand! Well written and every bit what i would have expected from Conan.

A fortyish Conan leads an army trying to overthrow the maniacal tyranny of king Numedides of Aquilonia. Conan believes his rebel force has a great chance of defeating the king's forces led by General Procas and consequently expects to topple a monarch who abuses children and kills concubines on some of mad whim.

Conan and his advisors anticipate and plan a war they expect fought in which blade goes against blade. Instead, the evil sorcerer Thulandra Thuu and his servant Alcina intercede. Soon a mysterious illness threaten to do what the king's forces have failed to do, destroy the rebel army unless Conan can find some way of saving himself, his soldiers and ultimately the people of Aquilonia.

This is a reprint of an exciting sword and sorcery tale released over two decades ago. The story line is fast-paced and loaded with non-magical and esoteric action as expected from the novels starring the pre-history hero. Conan remains dauntless while trying to do what he believes is right while his deadly foe Thuu will return for another day (or is that novel - if this reviewer's memory holds see CONAN THE SWORDSMAN).

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. We've all heard that statement before, right? In most cases, it may even be true. Something tells me it isn't so with this book. The two authors of this book point out in the introduction (which, along with the map of Howard's fantasy world, is the only interesting thing about this book) that great care has been taken to carefully reconstruct Howard's prose style while maintaining character continuity with his original stories. Even though I've never read a Howard book before--and I will seek some of them out after this--I don't doubt that the prose and descriptions match the original stories. Unfortunately, in their careful attempts at mimicry, these two authors forgot to craft an engaging story.
"Conan the Liberator" tells the story about a revolution mounted against the evil Numedides, King of Aquilonia, by Conan the Cimmerian, a former general of Numedides. People are fed up with the debaucheries of Numedides, and the high taxes that go along with them. But Numedides is under the spell of the evil Lemurian sorcerer Thulandra Thuu, a man who wishes to further his own interests through the king. Conan has other ideas, and assembles an army with the help of Count Trocero, a nobleman of Poitain; Dexitheus, a priest of Mitra; Publius, a rebel tax accessor; and Prospero, another exiled general. The army assembles in nearby Argos, where spies keep watch on their activities, and a beauty by the name of Alcina, in the employ of Thuu, watches Conan. The entire book is a painfully detailed account of the grinding excursion north to a showdown with Numedides and Thuu.
"Conan the Liberator" is the worst fantasy book I've ever read. Page after page is loaded with meaningless dialogue and politics. I always felt the name Conan was synonymous with action. This book showed me the error of that type of thinking. NOTHING happens in this book. Sure, there are a couple of short battles during the course of the story, and Thuu manages to cast a couple of spells against Conan and his army. But overall, these few scenes are not enough to justify writing this book, let alone reprinting it. Almost every scene manages to land with an earth-shattering thud
Character development is criminally, excruciatingly flat. I've seen better character development in industrial training films. Not one character ever rises above simple human traits such as breathing and moving. It will be a miracle if I remember anything about any of them in a few days.
What is good about this book pertains directly to the creator of Conan, Robert Howard. The introduction is good, and the map of Howard's fantasy world is fascinating. According to the introduction, Howard created a world with a mix of ancient, medieval, viking, and biblical place names. Howard placed his world between the sinking of Atlantis and "the emergence of the cities." Our gods and mythologies, according to Howard, are fragmentary memories of this forgotten age.
Avoid this clunker at all costs. Go out and find the original stories, or rent the Conan movies. Learning Esperanto or cleaning the lint out of your navel would be more fun than diving into this cesspool. I suspect Howard would be quite testy if he was still alive today to witness what others have done with his ideas.

In this novel, DeCamp and Carter tell the story of the Cimmerian's oft-mentioned revolt agains King Numedides of Aquilonia. Manipulating the madness of the king is Stygian wizard, Thulandra Thuu. (For those of you familiar with the works of Lin Carter, you gotta know that name was from Lin). Carter and DeCamp find a way to maintain the suspense even though any Conan fan knows the outcome of the story. The story shifts between Conan's inexorable march to Aquilonia and Thuu's attempts to stop the rebel army. Numedides is an excellent character, nasty and pitiful at the same time, every character in the book knows what's going on except him.
Great book with fantastic cover, condition was not as I expected however.
