About the BookTales there are of ancient Nithia, a city buried in the sand for countless generations. And there is a statue, it is whispered, in a building in these forbidden ruins, carved from an impossibly huge pearl: the treasure of a lifetime.
This is Conan's quest--the treasure with which he can achieve anything.
But others have heard the whispers that tell of the statue, this Grim Grey God: Jade, the mysterious empress of the thieves' guild; Toj, the most deadly assassin of Hyborea; and two of the most dangerous necromancers alive. These last seek the statue not for it fortune, but for its power--the power to end the reign of light and begin the rule of darkness. Only Conan dares to stand against them....
But he is too late?
