This is the extraordinary story of John Carter, who returns to the Red Planet in search of his beloved, Dejah Thoris. Along with his friend Tars Tarkas, mighty Jeddak of Thark, John lands in the Valley Dor, which is populated by vicious plant men, and discovers the Lost Sea of Korus, guarded by the great white apes and horrifying lions of Barsoom. It is here that he finds the princess Thuvia, who is a captive of the Holy Therns, high priests who eat only the flesh of humans slain by their plant men. But this is only the beginning of John Carter’s adventures under the double moons of Mars before he fights his way back to his own people as the Prince of the House of Tardos Mors.

    " Fighting, jumping, weird pacing, really convenient happenstance, maybe a little racism, etc. I didn't intend to carry on with Barsoom, but I have to admit that this ending was pretty epic and such a cliffhanger that I already began the next one. "

    " John Carter Of Mars: The Gods Of Mars is a fantastic book. It has just the right proportion of imagination and adventure.It is a classic science fiction novel. It is a sequel to A Princess Of Mars. The main character is John Carter. He was a Virginia cavalry man on Earth. He was transoported to Mars(Barsoom as the natives call it) through a magical cave. He began to love Mars, and married the red martian princess, Dejah Thoris. At the end of the first book, he is transported back to Earth. In the second book, he is able to get back to Mars through strenuous efforts. But when he does get back to Mars, he cannot get back to his family. He reunites with Tars Tarkas, a green martian who is the Jeddak(leader) of a race called Tharks. While trying to reunite with his wife and son, John Carter must battle fascinating foes such as the plant men, the white apes and the black pirates of Barsoom. He must escape from the black martians, who have captured him in a ship that sails the air. I enjoyed this book because its imagination and creativity never comes to an end. It is even more exciting than the first installment. The type of reader that would like this book, is someone that enjoys fun, swashbuckling adventure books. "
