A Witch Shall Be Born (Dodo Press)

A Witch Shall Be Born - Robert E. Howard Queen Taramis of Khauran awakens to find her identical twin sister Salome, thought to have been killed at birth for having the witches birthmark staring her in the face, she then takes over the kingdom impersonating Taramis who is then imprisoned. The army is disbanded, something the Captain of the Queens Guard (Conan) doesnt take to well.

After a struggle against mercenaries hired by Salome, Conan is taken away and crucified, he really really doesnt take this well.

A Witch Shall be Born is an average Conan story who hardly features in it but the crucifixtion sequence is the best passage of the story.
