For six long Martian months, John Carter, Prince of Helium, 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?

In this continuation of the saga of the amazing world of Barsoom, the love story of Carter and Dejah Thoris—the red-skinned, oviparous princess—unfolds. Like all the tales in the series, fantasy and adventure combine in a style as malleable as dreams, exotic and dangerous and unending.

Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris Michael | 2/15/2014

    " A solid ending to the John Carter trilogy, but not as exciting as Gods of Mars. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sam | 1/15/2014

    " Really just a regurgitation of the first book. Why are these novels classic again? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gina | 1/9/2014

    " This has by far been my favourite in the Barsoom series. A glorious read with a marvelous ending. I am not ashamed to say I teared up during the last few pages. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Giulia | 1/5/2014

    " I loved this book it was straight into the action and didn't stop till the end another awesome book from ERB "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Solomon | 1/1/2014

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lindsay | 12/28/2013

    " Once again, another simply fun adventure book. Not my favorite compared to the Gods of Mars but it certainly wasn't terrible. And it is a nice conclusion to the "John Carter POV" story arc. Currently reading/listening to Thuvia of Mars and I have to say I am enjoying the 3rd POV story line. It's a nice change for the series and I look forward to continuing it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Flosi | 12/26/2013

    " Finally! John Carter and his Princess of Helium are united after the trials and battles take them from one Pole to the other. The Peoples of Mars are united as never before, the fighting between the four distinct nationalities has ceased and become allies. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacob | 12/15/2013

    " Doesn't matter what color foe you throw at John Carter, as long as it breathes and bleeds he will find a way to dominate and destroy and still make it home in time for dinner. Seriously though, green, red, white, black, and yellow men? Come on now.... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike Thomas | 12/9/2013

    " A good end to a very good trilogy of books, hope the films are as good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rodney | 9/16/2013

    " Better than the second, not as good as the first. The plot has been pretty standard through the first three books. I'm going to keep reading the series, so it's good enough to do that...and sometimes with series books, that's all you can ask for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gerry Arjona | 8/17/2013

    " John Carter is the James Bond of Mars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrew | 11/24/2012

    " Great book, I like this entire series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shane Mcdaniel | 11/7/2012

    " 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 Paul Harvey | 3/27/2012

    " Picks up from where book two ended, and the action was non-stop, much like a Bourne movie. As good as I remembered from my youth. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bill | 12/14/2011

    " Great stuff! A tad corny at times. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jjlupa | 9/7/2011

    " In which John Carter solves all mars's problems using grit alone. I'm a bit tired of it at this point, but its still an OK story... just, perhaps the series is running a bit long. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cynthiaj | 8/29/2011

    " another fun installment in the John Carter series...I am enjoying re-reading these very much. And they are quick reads which is nice when I don't have a lot of time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Keith | 7/28/2011

    " I would say the 1st Barsoom book is the best but the later installments tell a good story and do keep you invested in the characters which is always a nice thing for a series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Glyn | 7/7/2011

    " Got a little bored with this and perhaps became a little lost with it. LOoks like I will not be finishing this one. Perhaps I will get back into in a few years. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Charles | 6/30/2011

    " The second Martian book was even better than the first. This is actually my favorite of the series. Again, a major influence on my own Talera cycle. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael Barnette | 6/4/2011

    " 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. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 5/19/2011

    " The end of the "trilogy" that is the first 3 books of the ERB Mars' series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kelvin | 3/22/2011

    " Just finished reading the Barsoom serial, which I have on my kindle. These are excellent book to read, I'm really getting into E.R.B. style. It was a shame to find I reach the end on the books. I got totally absorbed into them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicholas | 2/6/2011

    " Like all Burroughs books, a princess got kidnapped and the hero needs to save her. Awesome. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marc | 1/19/2011

    " These books are lots of fun. I've read the first three in succession, but will take a break before moving on to book 4....the constant appearance of life-saving characters or objects in the "certain doom" situations is getting a bit tiresome.

    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brent | 9/12/2010

    " Book three of my guilty exercise-reading pleasures. Of course I haven't hit the gym too much recently, but that's no excuse to interrupt some good gym reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 9/4/2010

    " 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. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alexis | 6/21/2010

    " Better than the second book, that's for sure. Still ridiculously over-the-top and cheesy, but not unpleasant. Plus, Woola's awesome. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Nathan | 5/31/2010

    " A guilty pleasure. At this point in the series, it a formula of writing. "

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