Book Short Summary:

Impetuous and headstrong is Tara, Princess of Helium and daughter of John Carter. Tara meets Prince Gahan of Gathol, and is initially unimpressed, viewing him as something of a popinjay. Later she takes her flier into a storm and loses control of the craft, and the storm carries her to an unfamiliar region of Barsoom. After landing and fleeing from a pack of ferocious Banths (Martian lions), she is captured by the horrific Kaldanes, who resemble large heads with small, crab-like legs. The Kaldanes have bred a symbiotic race of headless human-like creatures called Rykors, which they can attach themselves to and ride like a horse. While imprisoned, Tara manages to win over one of the Kaldanes, Ghek, with her lovely singing voice. Fifth of his Barsoom series. Burroughs began writing it in January, 1921, and the finished story was first published in Argosy All-Story Weekly as a six-part serial in the issues for February 18 and 25 and March 4, 11, 18 and 25, 1922. It was later published as a complete novel by A. C. McClurg in November 1922. "A daughter," he replied, "only a little younger than Carthoris, and, barring one, the fairest thing that ever breathed the thin air of dying Mars. Only Dejah Thoris, her mother, could be more beautiful than Tara of Helium." For a moment he fingered the chessmen idly. "We have a game on Mars similar to chess," he said, "very similar. And there is a race there that plays it grimly with men and naked swords. We call the game jetan. It is played on a board like yours, except that there are a hundred squares and we use twenty pieces on each side. I never see it played without thinking of Tara of Helium and what befell her among the chessmen of Barsoom. Would you like to hear her story?" I said that I would and so he told it to me, and now I shall try to re-tell it for you as nearly in the words of The Warlord of Mars as I can recall them, but in the third person. If there be inconsistencies and errors, let the blame fall not upon John Carter, but rather upon my faulty memory, where it belongs. It is a strange tale and utterly Barsoomian.

When the woman he loves is in danger, Carthoris follows the footsteps of his heroic parents, John Carter and Dejah, to save her. Carthoris is in love with Thuvia, the princess of Ptarth. Constantly consumed by the thought of her, Carthoris is desperate to proclaim his love. However, Thuvia will not entertain his feelings, as she is betrothed to someone else, and Barsoomian engagements can only be broken through death. Even though his feelings are not reciprocated, Carthoris is still distraught when Thuvia gets kidnapped. Immediately, he rushes to save her. Traveling deep into the undiscovered South, the rescue mission leads to the discovery of an ancient race of Barsoomian, the Lothar. The Lothar are pale-skinned beings with powers that allow them to create illusions purely from their imaginations, yet Thuvia and Carthoris has bigger issues. Back in Ptarth, rumors circulate that Carthoris is guilty of kidnapping Thuvia, and the evidence is stacked high against him. As their two prominent home cities, Ptarth and Helium prepare to battle over this offense, Thuvia and Carthoris must hurry home to stop the war and clear Carthoris’ name before it’s too late. While Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Thuvia, Maid of Mars is the fourth in the Barsoom series, it is the first of the collection to focus on a new generation of characters, Thuvia and Carthoris. With the same level of action, excitement, and imagination of the previous novels, Thuvia, Maid of Mars is a fresh adventure that features new discoveries, unexplored settings, and a relatable romance.

With these accommodations, Thuvia, Maid of Mars caters to a modern audience while preserving the original wonder and adventure of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ work.

Though literary critics carped at what they called pulp fiction Burroughs' influence on generations of young people in search of excitement and adventure is undeniable.

Carter explores deeper and further into the planet's far flung regions and discovers all manner of fantastic creatures who he has to vanquish to gain the title of Warlord of Mars.In the Barsoom series, Burroughs has created an entire fictional universe, complete with history, geography, politics, religion and people with their own set of values. He based much of his work on the scientific information available at the time and used it to create these fantasy worlds. For Sci-Fi fans, Warlord of Mars is indeed a gripping and entertaining read.

Book Short Summary:

Soon after the American Civil War, Confederate soldier John Carter joins the gold rush in Arizona. After striking a vein of gold, Carter runs into trouble with the natives of the area. In attempts to evade their pursuit, Carter hides in a cave, unaware of its magical properties. Mysteriously, Carter is transported to Mars, which the planet inhabitants call “Barsoom”. When Carter discovers that the gravity difference between Mars and Earth has granted him powers of extraordinary strength, he uses his ability to rise among the ranks of a tribe named the Tharks. However, when a group of Tharks kidnap Dejah, a princess, Carter feels obligated to save her. Promising to return her to her people, Carter helps Dejah escape, unintentionally becoming involved in political turmoil while he falls in love with the princess. When an opposing force plans to invade Dejah’s home city, Carter leads an army to fight back, risking his life for the woman he loves. With high adventure, intense action, and fantasy, A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs is a classic example of 20th century pulp fiction.
