Having added new lands to his father's empire, the prince must deal with diplomacy, border wars, and a local champion. The wazir offers guidance with a legend of when Conan was a hill chief of the Afghulis, high in the Himelian Mountains. Conan is building the seeds of a kingdomcan he betray a brave man to gain power? And if he can, should the prince do the same? Imperial skullduggery, high-mountain action, and devious schemes take the spotlight in this gorgeously drawn tale.
