The She-Devil With A Sword has traveled from pastoral Shem to strife-torn Koth and now, into the dark heart of Stygia itself. Sonja’s quest: a lost weapon of terrifying power, and perhaps, some measure of atonement. But the sinister schemes of the Phaorah’s own witch, Azenathi, may only bring Red Sonja death.

Queen Sonja #24

When finally the forces of Emora and Songoria meet in open battle, who lives and who dies? Can Queen Sonja quit the Emperor’s onslaught on Songoria from a hundred Leagues away? And the moment she sits on the Emperor’s throne, will she ever give it up?

Sonja’s taken enough poison to kill a wooly Rhinoceros. But she’s no wooly Rhino, she’s Sonja! She awakens from her poison-induced coma into a very new reality: Thulsa Doom has destroyed her capital, and with the help of his evil god, Set, he is rounding up Sonja’s subjects, for an unknown but surely extremely unpleasant purpose. Thulsa hires the very mercenary band whom Sonja fielded against the Emorans to hunt the refugee Queen down. Not all of the mercenaries are feeling good about their new assignment, but don’t they have much say in the matter — Thulsa will kill them if they don’t succeed!

Red Sonja has seized the crown of the tiny nation of Sogaria. She finds herself plunged into a dark world of intrigue, rivalry and assassination. Lord Ariok, foremost of the rebellious lords of eastern Sogaria, takes the opportunity of her ascension to incite a rebellion against the new queen. The signs are unclear, but it’s possible Ariok is the one prophesied to defeat Sonja and take her for a wife. Sonja, much to her surprise, finds herself charmed by Ariok, and by his little sister, Alethia. But what of the terrible, demonic sword Ariok wields, and the grisly murders that follow in his wake?
