One of my favorites to this point in reading the series. This book takes you to a hidden valley where a lost Roman civilization has lived for hundreds of years. Through this Burroughs gives us a peek at Roman culture and existence, much like he did with Knights in the previous book.

This was a really great read. I could not put it down once I started. ( )

This adventure into a small lost civilisation of the past is a lot more fun than Lord of the Jungle. Tarzan is much more the focal character in this book, rather than a sideline character, so that helps.

Running around with his simian sidekick provides some comic relief, as he comes up against a couple of tinpot Caesars, manhandles one, overcomes in the arena, survives a siege, and topples some government.

Definitely entertaining.

"He rose from the throne and raised his hand for silence. The hum of voices ceased. "Caesar is dead, but upon someone of you must fall the
mantle of Caesar."

"Long live Tarzan! Long live the new Caesar!" cried one of the gladiators, and instantly every Sanguinarian in the room took up the cry."

Tarzan doesn't really fancy the job, so makes a suggestion that one of his martial Roman friends would fill the void nicely.

One of Burroughs' more interesting archaeological Tarzan adventures in which Erich Von Harben is introduced, and Tarzan discovers himself inside one of Burroughs' many lost civilizations in Africa, a Roman City. An interesting portrayal of Burroughs' concept of Roman life and mores, and a satisfying adventure. ( )

While searching for a missing scholar in the treacherous Wiramwazi Mountains, Tarzan is captured by an ancient tribe of the centuries-dead Roman Empire. In this dangerous throwback to Caesar's brutal regime, Tarzan must triumph over cruel emperors, skilled gladiators, and blood-hungry lions - or he will never taste freedom again...
