Conan the Unconquered book. Robert Jordan wrote a bunch before he started The Wheel of Time. None of these are really Howard's Conan and might have been better about a different character, although they probably wouldn't have been published then.

Conan the Unconquered. I truly enjoyed this book. Aside from Robert Howard, the creator of Conan, Robert Jordan (And L. Sprague De Camp) is the man who brings us closest to the realm Howard created. This work should be considered one of the very best additions to the Conan universe. The characters of the novel are resplendent and varied.

Conan the Unconquered is a fantasy novel by American writer Robert Jordan, featuring Robert E. Howard's seminal sword and sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. It was first published in paperback by Tor Books in April 1983, and reprinted on a number of occasions.

Storm winds howling off the midnight-shrouded Vilayet Sea clawed at the granite-walled compound of the Cult of Doom. The compound gave the appearance of a small city, though there were no people on its streets at that hour. More than the storm and the lateness kept them fast in their beds, praying for sleep, though but a bare handful of them could have put a finger to the real reason, and those that could did not allow themselves to think on it. The gods uplift, and the gods destroy

Remembering this book from when I was young, I went ahead and purchased the Kindle edition. It was a good read, and one that kept me asking, "Why do the movies always get Conan so wrong?" Conan's wit and personality are a much larger entity in books.
Robert Jordan does a handily good job in holding the reader's attention, while bringing to life the character invented by Robert E. Howard. The sorcerer, Jhandar, is a bit thin for depth, but is a worthy nemesis in a roundabout way for Conan in this tale.
But c'mon it's Conan, who would want to face the Cimmerian with imposing and icy blue eyes with such a fierce sword arm, full with bands of knotted flesh as hard as the steel it wields?
No one. The necromancer should damn sure have known better!
All in all I would recommend this book, it is an easy read though, and not very lengthy.
My four star rating reflects a bit of nostalgia on my part, as well as acknowledgement that Robert Jordan, while talented, is no Robert E. Howard.

Jordan is an excellent writer of the Conan saga......highly recommended to all Conan fans

I have read a lot of the Conan books lately. None of them measure up to REH, and his original stories. But this one wasn't to bad. I rather enjoyed it above R. Jordan's other Conan books. Not that his other ones are terrible, just that this one captured my interest from the start and held it. Pretty good one. Check it out

Unlike Robert Howard, Robert Jordan offers a bit more sensuality in his versions of Conan. It's not vulgar but it is titillating.

The Unconquered benefits from a more eastern setting (Aghrapur in Turan, with a trip across the Vilayet Sea to the Mongol-inspired Hyrkania). The cult leader who serves as the villain is a nice twist on the usual evil sorcerer, and his Khitan bodyguards were a highlight when I first read the book and a highlight now.

“The air hummed as if a thousand hornets had been loosed. Arrows sliced through the space where they had stood, toward the man in black. And before Conan’s astounded gaze the man, hands darting like lightning, knocked two shafts aside, seized two more from the air, then seemed to slide between the rest and disappear.”

After arriving in Aghrapur, Conan becomes entangled with the schemes of the necromancer Jhandar, leader of the Cult of Doom. When the sorcerer raises undead minions to kill him, Conan is forced to flee to Hyrkania to find the secret to destroying Jhandar. He is joined by an old, eccentric astrologer named Sharak and a sergeant of the Turanian Army, Akeba, whose daughter was kidnapped by the Cult. Complicating matters is a young, naïve daughter of a nobleman who Conan feels honor bound to protect.

‘Unconquered’ is a fun, fast read. Some do not like author Robert Jordan’s use of archaic diction, arguing that he’s “aping” Howard’s style. No, it’s actually a much more colorful, pulpy style of prose than Howard’s, and in my view, it compliments Conan’s Hyborian world perfectly. I don’t expect barbarians and necromancers to talk like 21st century English Lit. majors, but that’s just me. I mean, who doesn’t want words like “ensorceled” and “thaumaturgical” in their fantasy?

As always, Jordan does a great job of creating vivid atmospheres, particularly with the “thaumaturgical” rituals of its sorcerer villains. He also balances a diverse cast of interesting characters to compliment Conan, giving many opportunities for drama and surprisingly well-timed humor here and there (especially when Conan gets doused with perfume).

Unconquered isn’t Jordan’s best (check out 'Invincible' and 'Defender'), but still considerably better than the great majority of Conan pastiches. As in his other books, Jordan’s 19-year-old Conan still seems a little too shrewd and smooth with women, even though most of them are usually preoccupied with sleeping with him. But hey, it’s Conan.

Another fine work by the late great Robert Jordan. I read this book as part of a three part Conan omnibus, this being the third work in the omnibus.

All I can say is how in awe I am of Conan the Barbarian! He can do anything that he puts his mind to. Indomitable and tenacious, Conan will do whatever it takes to save a damsel in distress while slaying her said tormenter. In this book Conan embarks on a quest to destroy the evil Cult of Doom. It is this cult that seeks to bring the Turanian Empire under its sway. However, its wizard does not count on having Conan stand in his way.

Conan journeys to Hyrkania for a magical object that can bring balance in favor of those opposing the order. In order to succede, Conan must battle pirates, assassins, nomads and hideous monsters and then prevail over the tempests of the Vialyet Sea. But prevail he does and woe to any who stand against the Cimmerian. Those who do are cut down in ruthless savagery.

The scenes described in Agrahpur were realistic and precise in prose. Jordan's descriptions have always been precise. He is second to none in the Conan Genre. He may not have created it but he did perfect it. My one quibble with Jordan is that he tended to be quite verbose when going deep into prose; he used words that were difficult to understand. I took the SAT, but the words he used were never on any of my vocabulary lists! Despite this, I loved the book and the characters even more.

Seeing Esmira enslave Davinia in the book's end brought a shock of surprise to my system at firt, but I realize it was a woman's revenge against she who had intended to kill her. Davinia was sold to a brothel. She went from being the concubine of one of the most powerful men in the empire to being nothing but a slut in a whore house. Esmira was ruthless to Davinia! Hell Hath No Fury Like A Woman Scorned.

Get this book and you won't be dissapointed.
