The Hour of the Dragon (also known as Conan The Conqueror) by Robert E. Howard - Audio Book - 8.3 hr

The Hour of the Dragon also known as Conan the Conqueror is a fantasy novel by American writer Robert E. Howard featuring his sword and sorcery hero Conan the Cimmerian. It was one of the last Conan stories published before Howards suicide although not the last to be written. The novel was first published in serial form in the December 1935 through April 1936 issues of the pulp magazine Weird Tales. The first book edition was published by Gnome Press in hardcover in 1950. The Gnome Press edition retitled the story Conan the Conqueror a title retained by all subsequent editions until 1977 when the original title was restored in an edition issued published by Berkley/Putnam in 1977. The Berkley edition also reverted the text to that of its original Weird Tales publication discarding later edits. Later editions have generally followed Berkley and published under the original title. The plot is a loosely based melange of motifs from previous Conan short stories most notably "The Scarlet Citadel" with which it shares an almost identical storyline. It takes place when Conan is about forty-five during his reign as King of Aquilonia and follows a plot by a group of conspirators to depose him in favor of Valerius heir to Conans predecessor Numedides whom he had slain to gain the throne. To accomplish this they resort to necromancy resurrecting Xaltotun an ancient sorcerer from the pre-Hyborian empire of Acheron. With his aid the Aquilonian army is defeated by that of the rival kingdom of Nemedia and occupied. Conan captured is slated for execution until the sympathetic slave girl Zenobia risks her life to free him.Conans quest to retrieve the Heart of Ahriman in order to defeat the wizard and regain his throne takes him through all the lands of Hyboria.After his eventual triumph he vows to make Zenobia his queen.
