Warlord of Mars (version 2)

Book cover
By: (1875-1950)

In this third installment of the adventures of John Carter on Mars, our hero labors under sentence of death (for having returned from the land of the dead) in a heroic struggle to recover the beautiful Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium. He scours the planet from pole to pole, enduring imprisonment and torture, outwitting antagonists, reveling in carnage, accepting aid from unlikely sources, and dealing tactfully with women who love him despite his devotion to his wife. Having deprived an entire planet of its false religion, he offers in its place worldwide alliances and the promise of lasting peace.

In the shadows of the forest that flanks the crimson plain by the side of the Lost Sea of Korus in the Valley Dor, beneath the hurtling moons of Mars, speeding their meteoric way close above the bosom of the dying planet, I crept stealthily along the trail of a shadowy form that hugged the darker places with a persistency that proclaimed the sinister nature of its errand.

For six long Martian months I had haunted the vicinity of the hateful Temple of the Sun, within whose slow revolving shaft, far beneath the surface of Mars, my princess lay entombed but whether alive or dead I knew not. Had Phaidor's slim blade found that beloved heart? Time only would reveal the truth... Continue reading book >>

Another great SiFi book by ERB. Long John Carter of Barsoom and Princess Dejah Thoris. I read this series many many years ago and just happened upon them a few months ago. Thanks Loyal Books for hosting them and many other audio books.

I don't binge read these, but I love listening to them as I go to sleep. I am so glad I found this website, I don't have to pirate audio books anymore!

I was sad when the last chapter was read by someone else after listening to him for 3 full books. This book is good and continues in the same fighting sense as the others. Good ending. Now onto book 4.

I had to continue in the series to find out what happens. I can't say I was disappointed and glad to finally get to the ending that didn't leave me dying to know what came next. If you loved the first two books in the series this one is a must. You won't be sorry.

Same reader as the previous book? What's really odd is that the last chapter is read by someone completely different. I guess it says that in the description. Also, you get what you pay for. LOL

Lost interest. Unless someone tells me these books get better, I'll probably skip the rest.
