Synopsis
While in pursuit of an "ape-bat", Conan meets the beautiful widow Lia. He also meets Lia's brother-in-law Zvevo, who secretly transforms into the ape-bat by using Akhalla's book of magic, which he stole from the brother he once murdered. After a fierce battle, the ape-bat is killed. But Conan cannot rest for long as a new threat appears in the form of a very familar demon. Wrarrl, the Devourer of Souls, seeks revenge on Conan. The only way for Lia to save Conan's life is to summon dead sailors from the bottom of the sea and offer her own life to them in return.
