In this novel the focus shifts from John Carter, Warlord of Mars, and Dejah Thoris of Helium, protagonists of the first three books in the series, to their son, Carthoris, prince of Helium, and Thuvia, princess of Ptarth. Helium and Ptarth are both prominent Barsoomian city state/empires, and both Carthoris and Thuvia were secondary characters in the previous two books. (Summary by Wikipedia)

(3 stars)

It's a good book, but it sounds like an afterthought rather than a direct part of the series. The narrator was fine for a while and then there were a lot of mouth noises and wheezing nasal passages that were a little irritating. Overall the story was good.

good read

(5 stars)

though written in the third person, it's quite good. it did have a few looks ends that didn't get wrapped up. but over all a good listen Reader did a good job. sometimes his voices were comical in a serious situation. but he did a good job

Philosophy and adventure

(5 stars)

This novel is a remarkable work where the adventures of the heros and heroines of Barsoom are intermingled with the philosophical discourse. This all forms great sustenance for the heart and the intellect.
