Book review: Conan the Defender

I have had some requests from people who have read my reviews of Conan pastiche novels (wow, people actually read these things!) to do write-ups on the Robert Jordan novels. Okay, your wish is my blog entry. Actually, two blog entries, since I’ll have another Robert Jordan review up next week, the same day I fly off to Germany for two weeks.

So . . . this week’s Robert Jordan Conan novel is his second, Conan the Defender. It’s not as enjoyably pulpy as his first, Conan the Invincible, but as far as the Tor series of pastiches go, it’s high quality.

The review is now up over at Black Gate.
