The Infernal Bargain

Cover of a promotional e-book for DMR Books, written by Dave Ritzlin, in the vein of Conan by Robert E. Howard et al. The story centers around a barbarian who falls prey to a frail sorcerer who has made one-too many demonic bargains. Here the hero, Avok, comes face to face with his infernal threat.
