Within a small but wealthy kingdom near Poitain, Conan is among a few select mercenaries chosen to participate in a series of grueling and dangerous trials to determine who is the strongest, most resourceful, and best-suited to recover the sacred shrine of Luma, a religious icon stolen ages ago. The terrifying trials are but one of the many obstacles Conan must face; he must also deal with the whims of a fickle king, his devious warlords, and the treachery that infests the entire domain. Enter the enigmatic peasant maid Laika, who seeks his refuge as an ally. Who can he trust? A bittersweet epic by Larry Yakata and Ernie Chan.
