This one's mostly about Tarzan's son, Jack, aka Korak the Killer. He too becomes a wild ape man. He also gets a girl who is way tougher and smarter than Jane. Of course, Burroughs has to go through incredible plot convolutions to make sure that he can find a wild girl of European stock in deepest Africa. No interracial romances for Burroughs! ( )

I was surprised how little I remembered of this book.
The book is as much about Meriem as it is about Tarzan's son, They spend quite a bit of time separated. ( )

While this fourth in the series was full of adventure, much of it felt recycled from adventures Tarzan had himself. And while I know it is all fantasy, I somehow had an easier time believing Tarzan as a superhero but his son, not so much. Somehow the fact that Tarzan had been raised by apes gave some cause for his super powers but I couldn't buy a proper English school boy somehow acquiring all those abilities simply because he landed on African shores.

Visit us online at www.1stWorldLibrary.ORG - - The long boat of the Marjorie W. was floating down the broad Ugambi with ebb tide and current. Her crew were lazily enjoying this respite from the arduous labor of rowing up stream. Three miles below them lay the Marjorie W. herself, quite ready to sail so soon as they should have clambered aboard and swung the long boat to its davits. Presently the attention of every man was drawn from his dreaming or his gossiping to the northern bank of the river. There, screaming at them in a cracked falsetto and with skinny arms outstretched, stood a strange apparition of a man. "Wot the 'ell?" ejaculated one of the crew. "A white man!" muttered the mate, and then: "Man the oars, boys, and we'll just pull over an' see what he wants."

"Alexis Paulvitch, a henchman of Tarzan's now-deceased enemy, Nikolas Rokoff, survived his encounter with the ape-man in The Beasts of Tarzan and wants to even the score. He lures Jack, Tarzan's son, away from London and into his clutches, but the youngster escapes with the help of the ape named Akut. The pair then flees into the deep African jungle where two decades earlier Tarzan himself had been raised. Jack Clayton, now on his own, becomes known as Korak the Killer and builds a reputation for himself in the jungle. Like his father before him, he finds his own place among the great apes, and also like his father, meets and rescues a beautiful young woman, Meriem, the daughter of a Captain in the French Foreign Legion, who was also a Prince (Prince de Cadrenet), named Armand Jacot." --Wikipedia.… (more)
