The Warlord of Mars completes the story begun in A Princess of Mars and continued in The Gods of Mars, finally bringing together John Carter and his beloved Dejah Thoris, Princess of Helium.

For six long Martian months, John Carter has haunted the terrifying Temple of the Sun. Inside the walls of this mysterious revolving tower is his beloved wife, Dejah Thoris, the beautiful princess of Barsoom. Worse yet, his wife is trapped there with the lovely but wicked Phaidor, who has sworn to make John Carter her own—even if it means murder. How can Carter gain access to the Temple, whose doors swing open only once a year? And when he does find his way inside, will he find Dejah Thoris’ welcoming embrace—or her corpse?

    " I love me some Woola. :D "

    " Adventure, fantasy, romance, this book is amazing. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Alicia Reffett | 2/2/2014

    " After reading 3 books in this series, they all start to sound the same. They are well written, but don't think I'll read anymore at this point. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Allyson | 1/27/2014

    " Maybe I'm crazy, or maybe I have questionable tastes in literature, but even with the antiquated language I really enjoyed this book. Ned's language is sometimes tedious but if you pay attention to the details he paints a vivid picture of the new regions of the world of Barsoom. The "just in the nick of time" action can seem predictable, but even though you know something will save JC and DJ, you never know what it will be. And now on to Thuvia's story! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 John Keller | 1/27/2014

    " As is common with Burroughs, one must suspend disbelief and just accept the constant impossible coincidence and amazing stokes of luck. Just revel in the great swashbuckling adventure, for that is what makes it great. It is why after 98 years people still read it with joy! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter Bosson | 1/10/2014

    " At this point in the series I know exactly what I am going to get with John Carter. The book has many flaws but it is also imaginative and exciting. I enjoyed this one more than the last because instead of focusing on an lackluster mystery (the obvious identity of his son) it is more nonstop action. Though I must say that it is incredibly frustrating that his princess is kidnapped multiple times. As before Burroughs introduces interesting characters and fantastical settings. A fun read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Stephen | 1/9/2014

    " Well, this series got to be a little long in the tooth by the third book. I think the first book was the best, the second built on the first book but ended up just falling Carter as he ran around everywhere. I also enjoyed that the characters got a little more flesh on them in the first book, Tar Tarkas and Dejah Thoris in particular. In this book and the second, all the other characters not names John Carter just have brief interludes and are pretty shallow. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wayne | 1/6/2014

    " As with "A Princess of Mars", I can't be objective about this book. It is the final part of a three-volume book. The ending is a nice, satisfying wrap-up to the story told through "A Princess of Mars" and "The Gods of Mars". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Solomon | 12/29/2013

    " I still like this siries they keep adding new types of.aliens now there are five different ones. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roman | 12/25/2013

    " The Warlord of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs (1985) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Peters | 12/7/2013

    " As I read this I realized where the Super Mario Brothers game franchise got the idea of the bad guy taking the princess after each battle scene, that got a little old. I'm invested now, I think I will finish reading the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 L.a. Matthies | 11/23/2013

    " Always a good adventure!Very strong and descript characters. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard Tolleson | 8/30/2013

    " say this about ERB: he could write fight scenes better than possibly any writer before or since. John Carter loves to fight, so ERB has ample opportunity to demonstrate his fight-writing skills. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Barnette | 7/24/2013

    " Another great offering in this classic series. I really enjoyed reading it as a kid, and I still read through the series from time to time just for the pleasure the books give me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Miller | 6/4/2013

    " I really enjoy reading E.R.Burroughs. Simple reading, yet you can see the imagination the man had. Brilliant!!!! "

    " Mindless fun watching the luckiest man in existence pull off the imposible several times a day. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tamara | 5/5/2013

    " Warlord of Mars picks up right where the Gods of Mars leaves off. It was a quick, enjoyable read--probably my favorite of the first three Barsoom books. Again, we see another side and another people of Mars as John Carter fights to get Dejah Thoris and take her back home to Helium. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erin | 12/23/2012

    " Adventure and danger lurking behind every martian corner. I really enjoyed it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane Mcdaniel | 11/12/2012

    " This third installment of John Carter is much more swashbuckling that the rest. It's a tad shorter and the story is effectively one long chase scene though it still allows for a lot of fun. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 10/27/2012

    " These books are still so much fun. Yes, you know John Carter is going to win every battle, but so what. The ebb & flow of the tale speaks to its original serialization. On to Thuvia, Maid of Mars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 9/5/2012

    " Better than The Gods of Mars. "
