Format: Mass Market Paperback
Conan the Defiant is the second of the five novels which Steve Perry wrote in the fifty-book Tor Series. In William Galen Gray's chronology it is the fourth Conan tale (following Conan of Venarium, Legions of the Dead and The Thing in the Crypt), taking place before Sean Moore's Conan the Hunter.

****MINOR SPOILERS BELOW****

The young Conan comes upon a lone priest being waylaid by five bandits. Impressed with the stranger's skill with a wooden staff, the Cimmerian wades in and helps the man dispatch his opponents. Cengh, a priest of the Suddah Oblates, is later murdered, sending Conan on a quest of justice for his short-time friend.

In typical Conan fashion, he beds Elashi, a desert-bred warrior maiden as well as Tuanne, a beautiful zombie. Yep, a zombie. Being the irresistable stud he is, the trio engage in threesomes all along their trek to the bad guy's castle. This one seems to rate higher than normal on the Conan adolescent fantasies scale.

Neg the Malefic is a necromancer who needs a gem called The Source of Light to raise and unleash a horde of undead minions to conquer the world. Both Conan's and Elisha's quests are a result of Neg's machinations, even though the evil spellcaster has no idea who they are.

There is no shortage of foes in this tale, with undead, the Men with No Eyes, Neg's lackey, the Suddah Oblates, agents in the employ of The One With No Name and an ensorcelled pack of spiders providing more than enough bad guys at every step of the way. With so many enemies to deal with, it is surprising how often Conan finds time to have sex with his two travelling partners.

The story, which is rather linear, works. There is enough tension throughout, with the time element constantly in play and moving things along.

Perry can right, and his Conan books are great. Well paced with lots of action and adventure, while building the characters.
