* SelfPlagiarism: One of the common complaints against the story, as it blatantly recycles elements from previous stories, ''Iron Shadows in the Moon'' and ''Xuthal of the Dusk'' being the most obvious.

On the island, Conan and Octavia are shocked to find a city that wasn't there the day before, full of hanging tapestries, golden banquet halls, and beautiful sleeping people. Heading for the center of the city, they find it's keeper, Khostral Khel, a millennia old HumanoidAbomination who has just awoken from his long slumber, who has [[MindOverMatter brought the]] [[RealityWarper city back]] to it's former glory.

* EldritchAbomination: Khosatral Khel, first appearing as an EvilSorcerer and a {{Necromancer}}, turns out to be this when Conan kills him, reverting to a form so ghastly that it causes Conan to flee in fear.

* EldritchAbomination: Khosatral Khel, first appearing as an EvilSorcerer and a {{Necromancer}}, turns out to be this when Conan kills him, reverting to a form so ghastly that it causes Conan to flee in fear. In fact, he's stated to be this, as he came from the primordial chaos. The name of the country he's ruled? Dagon.
** HumanoidAbomination: Khosatral Khel, again, as he has taken a human form. His description is a quote for this very trope!
