The winds of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Mars blow across a world where danger, daring, and adventure are the lifeblood of its untamed inhabitants. Here are magnificent cities glistening with barbaric splendor and peopled by the noble red men of Mars…savage, rampaging hordes of giant, multilimbed green men who roam the Martian plains…fierce beasts of prey whose hideous cries are the dreadful chorus of the red planet’s night.

In Thuvia, Maid of Mars, Carthoris, son of the legendary John Carter, is accused of abducting the beautiful Princess Thuvia. To clear his name and to rescue the woman he loves, he must battle hosts of diabolical foes. Yet all seems lost when they fall into the hands of Tario, made ruler of Lothar, for he proposes to sacrifice them to his savage, beast-like god.

  • “Todd’s delivery is well paced, shifting cadence to follow Burroughs’ shifts from war to philosophy. And Thuvia is full of adventure—telepathic warriors, giant apes, true love, and more.”

    AudioFile

    Kliatt

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 10/24/2009

    " Aside from the fact that it has one of the all time great covers, this is a cool sci-fi adventure concentrating on John Carter's son and the maid of the title and the various adventure and intrigue they get caught up in which is required as a form of courtship in any Burroughs novel.
