Book Description

1 July 2005
Purchase one of 1st World Library's Classic Books and help support our free internet library of downloadable eBooks. Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - 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. Six hundred and eighty-seven Martian days must come and go before the cell's door would again come opposite the tunnel's end where last I had seen my ever-beautiful Dejah Thoris.

5.0 out of 5 stars Desert Island Classic 18 Nov 1998
By A Customer
If I had to be stuck on a desert island with only ten books, the Barsoomian trilogy (Princess of Mars, Gods of Mars, and Warlord of Mars) would be three of them. Warlord wraps up the tale as Carter takes up the trail of the incomparable Dejah Thoris, following her captors to the hidden cities of the polar regions, culminating in a battle that settles the future of Barsoom. All the breathless adventure, daring swordplay, hairsbreadth escapes, and dry humor you could ask for. Even more in control of his material than in the other two excellent volumes, Burroughs challenges himself both to keep in the established material about Barsoom and still invent new elements. If you have not read the Barsoomian trilogy, and you love SF adventure, buy it NOW! You will re-read it with delight the rest of your life.

By Lawrance M. Bernabo HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Edgar Rice Burroughs did not intended to write a trilogy, but his 1914 pulp novel “The Warlord of Mars” completes the story begun in “A Princess of Mars” and continued in “The Gods of Mars” and finally brings John Carter and his beloved Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium (i.e., no cliffhanger this time around, boys and girls). The story picks up six months after the conclusion of “The Gods of Mars,” with our hero not knowing whether she is dead or alive in the Temple of the Sun of the Holy Therns where he last saw here with the blade of Phaidor was descending towards her heart as the evil Issus, queen of the First Born, had locked his mate in a cell that would not open for another year. However, it turns out that the exiled leader of the Therns has reached the trapped women to rescue his daughter and to seek revenge on Carter for exposing his evil cult.
The focus of “The Warlord of Mars” is on Carter’s relentless pursuit of the villainous Thurid who have taken his beloved princess from the south pole of Barsoom across rivers, desert, jungles, and ice to the forbidden lands of the north in the city of Kadabra where the combined armies of the green, red and black races attack the yellow tribes of the north, thereby justifying the book’s title. It is interesting to note that Carter’s heroics in this novel have the same sort of over the top implausibility we find in contemporary Hollywood blockbusters as ERB pours on the action sequences one on top of another. Whether he is scaling towers in the dark of night or surviving in a pit for over a week without food and water, John Carter is a manly hero in the great pulp fiction tradition of which ERB was an admitted master.

5.0 out of 5 stars Second Time Round 20 April 2000
By A Customer
When I was 22 I was working for a spell in Rhodesia and came across one of the John Carson on Mars series, well I enjoyed it so much I went out of my way to collect the whole series and I enjoyed every one of them, but when I was moving house I must have either chucked them out by mistake or missplaced them but now I am looking forward to collecting them again and will start with the Mars Triology

4.0 out of 5 stars Warlord Of Mars 25 April 2013

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the book because I was interested in the historic science fiction as written by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The language though is archaic and might not suit everyone.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another engaging adventure 5 Mar 2013
By Jimbo
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These books are all about adventure and in this context are timeless. The world Edgar Rice Burroughs creates in the depth of his own mind is one the reader can enter knowing that the princess always gets rescued, the hero survives to be proclaimed, and the villain always gets his or her just deserts!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where does it go now 14 Jan 2013
By denand
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great series so far, where does it go now. There are many small bits to tidy up but no major villain still to kill, more will need to be identified and a new strategy or direction found.

3.0 out of 5 stars Space Opera/Fantasy - ages Well! 8 Nov 2012
By Alan W
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This title in the chronicles of John Carter has aged very well. The storyline is good, though predictable. As Space-Opera/Fantasies go it has all of the staple ingredients - A hero who faces danger, escapes from impossible situations and/or horrible creatures, chases his enemies tirelessly across half a planet, gets the girl, etc. ect. Even so I found the book to be a good 'page-turner', As are all of the titles I have read in this series. Considering that the book is one of many free titles available for my Kindle, I thoroughly enjoyed the story and would recommend the title to anyone who enjoys reading a good 'Space-Opera/Fantasy'.
