In the third of Burroughs's "John Carter of Mars" series, the man from Earth unites warring races and is reunited with his love, Dejah Thoris. John Bolen unnecessarily reads the story with a Virginia accent, but he does so effectively and consistently in a way that does not take away from the performance. The MP3 CD is divided into 115 short (3-minute) files. Playback is clear and clean sounding, unadorned by music or other effects. The story is a fitting and exciting conclusion to the first three books, and provides a satisfying surprise ending. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2001, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
In the shadows of the forest that flanks the crimson plain by the side of the Lost Sea of Korus in the Valley Dor beneath the hurtling moons of Mars speeding their meteoric way close above the bosom of the dying planet I crept stealthily along the trail of a shadowy form that hugged the darker places with a persistency that proclaimed the sinister nature of its errand.
The Warlord of mars is the last book in the trilogy that Mr. Burroughs did not intend to write. The first book being: "The Princess of Mars" and the second being: "The God of Mars". The book takes up 6 months after "The Princess of Mars" Where our hero Carter is relentless in trying to find his princess and the villain "Thurid" whom has taken her. Please Note: This book is easy to read in true text, not scanned images that can sometimes be difficult to decipher.
