After his death-defying feats in Princess of Mars, John Carter was forced to return to Earth--but 10 years later, he's finally sent back to the Red Planet. Carter dreams of reuniting with his beautiful wife Dejah Thoris, but first he must join his Martian ally Tars Tarkas to battle a wide array of enemies--including the deadly Pirates of Barsoom on their speeding aerial craft. Amidst all the thrilling swordplay and intrigue, Carter learns more about the ancient theological, racial, and political divisions that have kept Mars in strife for centuries.

Another top-notch action/adventure book. Seem to be reading a lot of these...

Even tho this is a 100 year old book, holds up extremely well. The writing is a little florid, which might make sense since the "author" is a Civil War era soldier, but the action is non-stop, with the usual ERB convenient coincidences thrown in throughout.

One thing I've noticed with some of these roughly 100 year old adventure tales I've been reading is the limited or lack of dialogue: a lot of what would be written out as conversations, which might go on for pages, are instead wrapped up in tidy sentences or short paragraphs.

Read the first Martian Tales just after the movie, "John Carter," came out, tho I still haven't seen that. Liked the book enough to want to continue the series. This book ends on a heck of a cliff-hanger, so I'm committed to reading the next one as well!
