Shadows in the Moonlight

Read by Phil Chenevert

(4.5 stars; 354 reviews)

For a genuine Conan tale, full of barbarian craftiness, magic, fierce fighting and his berserker strength, this meets every criteria and is one of the best. Conan was raiding with the Free Companions when they were trapped and slaughtered by the merciless Shah Amurath the great Lord of Akif. Conan is one of the very few who escape by hiding in the mud of the marshes like a beast living on raw snake and muskrat. Luck, which seems to have deserted him, smiles again and allows him the chance for revenge and he eagerly seizes it, destroying his enemy with fierce strokes. Barely escaping his soldiers with the slave girl Olivia, once a princess of Koth, they reach a deserted island that holds many enchantments and strange dangers. Then the pirates arrive and things become even bloodier. (Summary by Phil Chenevert) (1 hr 30 min)

Enjoyable Story, bit Distracting Narration

(3.5 stars)

The plot was what you would expect from a magazine serial, but the voice was distracting. It felt more like the narrator for The Adventures of Tom Sawyer than for a swashbuckling swords and sorcery story.

Aother googone.

I think I will listen to it again.

great story but...

(4 stars)

Great story, however the ending leaves you a bit unsatisfied. The reader was great. Not much to say about him. No complaints, he did a masterful job.

If you say you like fantasy/adventure, and don't love that, then you are a fool, by Crom.

Great story

(5 stars)

This is a short but great Conan story. Sword fights, monsters, pirates, devils, and a babe. Perfect!

One thing about Howard, he does not waste words on story endings.
