The main characters of [b:The Chessmen of Mars|40378|The Chessmen of Mars (Barsoom #5)|Edgar Rice Burroughs|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1328773629l/40378._SX50_.jpg|1933207] are Carter’s daughter Tara and Gahan of Gathol, a prince of another kingdom. Tara is engaged and is outraged when Gahan declares his love for her because she is not attracted to him at all. She takes off in her flier, only to get caught in a massive storm which sends her flying off into uncharted lands. She's captured by the horrific Kaldanes, who intend to fatten her up for an upcoming feast. She wins over one of the Kaldanes, Ghek, and escapes. in the meantime, Gahan rushes to rescue the woman he's fallen for, typical in these Barsoom fantasy novels.

Gahan reaches the city of Manator where he taken prisoner by the inhabitants. Tara and Ghek are also captured. Eventually they are forced to engage in a duel to the death in a massive game that is reminiscent of Chess.

The Chessmen of Mars is a wonderful piece of fantasy, one that had me cheering the characters along in an engaging story with some genuinely fun and thrilling moments. ( )

Tara, John Carter's daughter, is swept off to a new country where she encounters creatures with separate heads and bodies, then is taken prisoner by other bad men. A handsome Jeddak works to rescue her. Story is "told" to an American by Carter on one of his trips home from Mars. ( )

John Carter's daughter gets kidnapped, a lot.

Indifferent. There are some interesting weird creatures early in the book. But most of it's garbage, with only Burroughs' ridiculous prose style to give it any entertainment value. ( )

This story focuses on Tara, daughter of John Carter and Dehah Thoris, who is captured by the warriors of the city of Manatol, where they play living games of jetan or Martian chess, in which the living pieces fight to the death. These games are used as a form of social control --criminals may fight in the games, slaves, in theory, may win their freedom in them, nobles may command teams as a form of group duel.Tara is supposed to be a prize in one if these games, to be enjoyed by the entire team f criminals who wins her, but naturally this does not happen.The story includes an appendix with the rules for Martian chess, and I can recall making a set of pieces and playing it when young. To me, this is one of the more clever concepts in the Barsoom series. ( )

follows the adventures of John Carters daughter. A spoiled brat who should have been spanked, imo. Anyway, a Jed from another kingdom falls in love with her, rescues her and everyone is happy. Meet the kaldanes, heads without bodies and another nation that lives on slavery. Burroughs seems to be running out of people to have adventures. Needs to get back to John Carter. ( )

PRELUDE: Shea had just beaten me at chess, as usual, and, also as usual, I had gleaned what questionable satisfaction I might by twitting him with this indication of failing mentality by calling his attention to the nth time to that theory, propounded by certain scientists, which is based upon the assertion that phenomenal chess players are always found to be from the ranks of children under twelve, adults over seventy-two or the mentally defective—a theory that is lightly ignored upon those occasions that I win.
Tara of Helium rose from the pile of silks and soft furs upon which she had been reclining, stretched her lithe body languidly, and crossed toward the center of the room, where, above a large table, a bronze disc depended from the low ceiling.
