Summary

For six long Martian months, John Carter 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's welcoming embrace - or her corpse?

Hurrah!

It's no secret that I love Rice-Burroughs. Some of the plot is guessable but I found that I was so caught up in the moment that I didn't want to think ahead-draw the book out as far as possible!

John Carter does our again - even better

Such classic space opera shouldn't be missed. John Carter meets new Martians and has to battle new foes and old. He makes it back to Barsoom (Mars) but is thwarted in finding home and family. In the mean time he has to solve a world of problems from false gods to evil villains that just won't stay down. Classic wiring style and beautiful language you don't hear much anymore. Well worth the listen as Scott Brick has style in reading that is a pleasure to listen to.

The final book of the first Barsoom trilogy

This was the third book of the initial Barsoom / John Carter series. It concludes the introductory trilogy. If the series ended here, I believe everyone would have been happy with the situation. As it was, popular demand and publishers had other ideas. This series ran for several more volumes, while entertaining, were not quite as original as these first three books.

This volume concludes John Carter's desperate search for his missing wife, Dejah Thoris. He, quite literally follows her abductors from one pole of Mars to the other. Along the way he gains allies and enemies, all the while battling incredible beasts and hordes of men. All while staunchly remaining true to his goal and his principles.

The author is remembered best for two of his many creations, Tarzan and the Barsoom series. This is well deserved. If you like adventures, romance, exotic worlds, and virtuous heroes, you owe it to yourself to read this series. I cannot recommend any more highly.

Excellent narrator brought the story to life

I was very pleased with the third book in the series. Only after I purchased the same book earlier by a different narrator, John Bolen, did I realize that the narrator could make or break a book. Scott Brick delivered the goods. I was pulled into the story and made real in my mind,

FANTASTIC!!!

I work as a Campus Safety officer at a university. I don't have time to read on my off duty time, however on lull times on graveyards, I listen to Audible. Of all the Audible books John Carter has been the best. The narrator is FANTASTIC.

same old same old

The first book of John carter princess of helium was excellent and fun and then the second book was starting to see a familiar pattern but by the 3rd it was sort of getting exhausting. over and over was John Carter and the princess in the same predicaments and nothing really evolved but the same until the end. overall as a trilogy it is a great story but just that 3rd book burnt me out.
