Conan the Fearless book. He did much of his work in other writers’ worlds, writing Star Wars, Aliens, Predator, and Indiana Jones books in addition to Conan books. He also wrote several Tom Clancy’s Net Force books. I have two: Conan the Fearless and Conan the Free Lance. I’ve only read Conan the Fearless and don’t plan on reading any more of the Steve Perry pastiches anytime soon. Conan the Fearless is the worst Conan story I’ve read.

The wind died slowly after the clouds sucked their whirling maw skyward: gone the tornado might be, but not the rain and ordinary airs of the storm th left by the wind-beast, a path much like a road cut through a forest. Following the whirlwind’s trail was the red demon, who saw Conan near the same instant he himself was spotted by the man. Despite the lashing rain, the Cimmerian could observe the demon’s face as it contorted in hatred. Conan drew his sword as the monster turned and began to sprint toward him. Vitarius!

Steve Perry simply revels in fantasy with "Conan the Fearless. Perry doesn't hold back a thing, bringing in demons, werecats, frost monsters, and of course sorcery and sword play. Maybe some of the ideas are a little cheesey, but the writing is strong enough to pull most of them off so it all flows naturally and in a logical manner. Perry makes good use of imagery and has one of the better vocabularies of the Conan pastiche authors I have read, which is nearly all of them.

I quite liked this book. I remember reading an excerpt from it at the end of another Conan book four years ago. Since that time I'd longed to read the book and was quite taken by it. My one quibble was I had assumed this would be a "road" book, not a sedentary one. But I loved Djuvula the demoness and her brother the demon. I've always liked intelligent female villains and Djuvula was just that. It's a shame that she had to die in the end but that's what happens when you go up against Conan.

I liked the balance of good and evil shown throughout this book. Sovartus was pure evil and had to be destroyed. But I also liked the showcase of a good wizard--a rarity in the world of Conan. I'm surprised that this book only has Three Stars. It's Four Stars in my opinion and could be rated a bit higher. The beginning of this book will really hook you and drag you in for more. Buy it and you won't be disappointed. I'm the fourth person to give this book Four Stars and the ninth to review it overall on Amazon.

good story a price

I found this story reasonably engaging. Perry certainly strove to closely parallel Howard's style and wording, but the plot is ultimately less enthralling than that of Roberts's "Conan the Rogue." It is remarkable how much strongly R-rated content (rated MS: mature or sexual content) is to be found. It may seem like a minor detail, but I would have found the atmosphere more engaging had Perry striven for more clever proper names: as it is, he just used Swedish words (for example, "Castle Slott": slott is merely Swedish for 'castle').

I highly recommend this book for Conan fans and fans of fantasy in general, since there are tons of fantasy elements here in a well-crafted tale that will keep you turning pages.

I was enthralled right at the start of this book. I've been reading Conan books for a long time and can honestly say Steve Perry's "Conan The Fearless" is my favorite with "Conan The Defiant" a close second (another Steve Perry masterpiece). The villains are intriguing, the plot is well thought out and Conan couldn't be more dashing, courageous and explicit. Robert E. Howard's work is done justice by Steve Perry.
His story telling is of the mature nature but not over the top. I just wish Mr. Perry had wrote more Conan books!!

Stupid Conan Story, I used to think that Leonard Carpenter was the worst Conan Author but now I believe it's a tie between him and Steve Perry!!! And yes, I have read almost all of the Conan Novels available! John Maddox Roberts is the best Conan author followed closely behind Robert Jordan!

What can I say about a Conan book? I am not a huge Conan fan, but I did watch the movies when I was a kid, and I liked those. I ended up with three or four Conan books when I was a teenager, which I always liked due to the hot chicks on the covers. This one, done by legendary artist, Boris Vajello, is pretty sweet, too. As it is a Conan book, what you’re pretty much going for is a lot of gritty action, evil wizards, and the aforementioned hot chicks. This one has them all.

Plot-wise, we have an evil wizard, Sovartus, in this case, who is attempting to create a super-elemental by tapping the strength of the four elemental powers embodied in four children. The mage has three of the four, but lacks the one with whom Conan is (of course) going to be associated. Conan meets up with her, ends up protecting her, and, with a rag-tag of heroes and quasi-heroes, Conan travels to the distant castle and defeats the evil sorcerer at the last minute after the latter has apparently accomplished his goal and successfully summoned the super-power.

This story is fun. There is a lot of action. Conan fights the elemental, a demon, a weird man-eating plant, a senator who is actually a were-panther who stalks the city streets at night, a few sets of bandits, a powerful witch--who also happens to be the demon’s sister (well, probably half-sister since she seems to be human in form)--who wants to make him her sex slave by proxy via infusing his soul into a construct that might accurately be considered a sex golem, some strange ape-like creatures who come out of a frozen lake, some sort of lizard or reptile men, and the wizard Sovartus. I appreciate the fact that the snow creatures actually outmatch him, and he flees before he is overcome. This is good because he is still alive to beat up everything else later.

There are hot chicks. The fire elementalist girl, Eldia, is hot in her way. The woman on the cover, though I am not sure who that is supposed to be—she seems allied to him the way she is depicted, so I think she is Kinna, the sister of the elementalist, Eldia—is definitely hot. Pretty much every fantasy woman I’ve ever seen in a metal bikini, high boots, and a cape was smokin’. Ditto for the witch, though in a spooky way. There may have been some other women in the story, but I don’t bother to try to remember them if they aren’t hot.

This book is great for what it is—an adventure tale. It would probably appeal to Conan fans, but I think it would also appeal to general fantasy readers because it has a number of standard sword and sorcery elements such as thieves, bandits, wizards, elementals, monsters, demons, were-beasts, and lots of cool sword fights. Oh, and, lest we forget, the mighty-thewed barbarian, himself. If you’re looking for an evening of light but fun entertainment, this might be worth a try.

I give it four stars; it isn’t the best I’ve read, but it is fun, and being fun is the point of the book.
