Empire of the Worm by Jack Conner

Jack Conner's "Empire of the Worm" is a melding of multiple genres, predominantly fantasy and horror.

The book's premise is incredibly engaging: think Cthulhu in Ancient Egpyt. The plot is chock-full of action and suspense. It begins with Prince Davril having to make a choice between sacrificing his fiancee to a god-like beast or face its wrath. He chooses the second choice and results are terrifying.

Unimaginable horrors make way for the kingdom, and Davril finds himself trying to keep it all together. The task is made complicated by an evil uncle with an insidious plan. In the midst of all the chaos, the Worm arrives -- and the results are hellish.

Without giving too much away, this book contains lots of strange terrors and dread events. The book is extremely fast-paced and action-packed, but maintains its character-oriented writing style

The book is not for minors (there's violence and graphic sex), but if you’re an adult that likes Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, "Empire of the Worm" is a must-read.
