You have to remember that this book came out in 1913!!! It was the base from which many of our beloved sci-fi stuff sprang. It seems almost comical today. The language is archaic because of the time it was written. So while I sometimes tired of the flowery language, its mesmerizing hero, John Carter, Prince of Helium, formerly from Virginia USA Planet Earth, is an amazing character and I liked spending time with him!

The Barsoom series was originally written as a trilogy and Warlords of Mars was supposed to wrap up some plot threads. This is the first Martian novel to take place entirely on Mars. As usual, John Carter spends lots of time running from one pole of Mars to the other, trying to recover his kidnapped princess. When the story opens, he has triumphed over the wicked, tyrannical ruler of the Firstborn, and has exposed the official religion of Barsoom as a farce and a system of control. Before he could rescue his beloved princess, Dejah Thoris, she is imprisoned in the depths of the Temple of the Sun by the evil Matai Shang. John Carter continues to prove himself the greatest warrior on two worlds, and is the most heroic person in the entire universe.

Although there are still eight more books to go in the Mars series, with The Warlord of Mars, Burroughs can bring to a conclusion Phase One of the saga. The books that follow will take different paths with new heroes. John Carter will not return to the protagonist role until the eighth book.

For as cheesy as everything is in the series, Burroughs is at least consistent in his cheesiness. Sensationalized to the utmost degree, he once again puts his flair for storytelling to use via endless action and adventure. And you've got to love the book covers!

This is the third book of the John Carter of Mars series and finishes the sequence of events that began in the second book, The Gods Of Mars. Like the second book, this novel features extraordinary accomplishments by the hero combined with an unlikely streak of incredibly good luck that sees him through the trials he faces. Some might say this stuff is unrealistic and is to be discounted as quality science fiction. I say hogwash! These novels are written in a specific way to portray the hero, John Carter, as a man of uncompromising principles bent on heroic goals despite all odds. That is the theme of these books and to think any other format would be more desirous is false. Before there was Superman, before Captain America, before any of your modern day superheroes, there was John Carter of Mars. Accept what he was, a legend of his time. One of the greatest fictional literary heroes ever written about. Nuff said. ( )

Not finding time to read anything else these days, but at least its something. Series continues to be surprisingly good. ( )

This third book of the series picks up after a cliff-hanger ending In the second book, with John Carter seeing the Phaidor daughter of the "Father of Therns," the high priest of the Martian religion Carter has done much to discredit, about to murder Carter's beloved wife Dejah Thoris. In this book Carter sets off to rescue DEjah and becomes involved with the city of Kaol (once of the last whose ruler is faithful to the old religion) and later with the yellow and black races of Mars, ( )

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.
