I just finished reading this short book. I read the Ace edition illustrated by Maroto. I must admit, guys. This book caught me from page 1 and held my attention all the way through. Reading it was a guilty pleasure. I found it very cinematic. Lots of action. The story is fun--very "Conan-esque". Big, grand ending.
Those that say de Camp can't rewrite Howard's non-Conan tales and make them a good tale of the Barbarian should read this one.
