Back in civilization, in the colorful and fragrant streets of the Turanian city of Khawarizm, the mercenaries no longer have the means to charter a ship of find a crew. Time is short and faced with the lack of other solutions, the Cimmerian suggests to his companions that they carry out a raid on one of the palaces of Jehungir Agha, the lord of Khawarizm and guardian of the maritime borders.

Conan had known for a long time that Jehungir keeps some of his most precious treasures in a fortress on the edge of the city. When he was a Kozak, a good-for-nothing moving in the savage and bare expanses of the steppe, the Cimmerian heard of magical objects worth a King’s ransom that the provincial governor jealousy protects. There is no doubt that these artifacts would soon find takers if they were stolen.

If Conan has kept his reflexes as a thief, it is not the case of some of his companions. Shortly after they had discreetly infiltrated the building, one of the mercenaries sets off an alarm, releasing a monstrosity with shiny and sinuous rings at the same time. The Cimmerian and his companions are also unaware that Jehungir’s artifacts are gorged with the darkest and most evil of witchcraft.
