Conan and the Gods of the Mountain is a fantasy novel written by Roland Green featuring Robert E. Howard's sword and sorcery hero Conan the Barbarian. It was first published in paperback by Tor Books in May 1993 and reprinted in November 1998.[1]

Plot[edit]

The novel picks up where Robert E. Howard's "Red Nails" leaves off, with Conan and his current flame, the she-pirate Valeria of the Red Brotherhood, newly escaped from the self-destruction of the lost city of Xuchotl. Treking through the jungles of Kush in an attempt to reach the coast, they become involved in a three-sided conflict between the Kwanyi tribe, divided among feuding clans, the Ichiribu, and the God-Men of Thunder Mountain, who can read the future and command the soul-eating Living Wind. Much of the action occurs underground, culminating in a battle between Conan and the giant Golden Serpent. The Living Wind, faced at the end of the story, proves an anticlimactic threat, summarily dealt with by a local shaman.
