So, whether you re acquainted with Red Sonja or are finding her here for the first time, this is a strong entry in the canon that delights on many levels. A very nice find.
Here’s the synopsis from the Dynamite website to get you even more excited:
Peter V. Brett, New York Times bestselling author of The Demon Cycle, lovingly pays homage to the iconic fantasy heroine in a tale that recaptures the tone of Robert E. Howard’s barbarian epics. An encounter with a devil leaves Red Sonja, the legendary swordswoman, bereft of her signature chainmail and fleeing murder charges, but a change of clothes and venue aren’t enough to escape the guilt in her heart. Penniless and under pursuit, she has no choice but to accept a dangerous mercenary job: to search for the tomb of an ancient warrior queen. But the spirit of Queen Gheta lives on: a fierce and unnatural combatant who may be the only creature in history capable of defeating Sonja. Meanwhile, the demonic entity Bhamothes wreaks havoc in her homeland of Hyrkania and only the forgiveness of a murdered boy can end its killing spree!
