Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, intends to pay back a blood debt owed to the one man who has gained her respect… even if it means leading a doomed army to their certain deaths! Who is Dark Annisia, and how has this fearsome warrior accomplished what neither god nor demon has been able to do: force Sonja to her knees in surrender? An epic tale of blood, lust, and vengeance, Queen of the Plagues takes Red Sonja from the depths of her own grave to the heights of battlefield glory.
The character has been a fixture in comic books since the early 1970s as Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith adapted a character from Robert E. Howard’s Conan stories and made her a match for the Cimmerian.
