These books have all started to meld together so correct me if I'm wrong, but wasn't the last book all about rescuing a slave? Or was that this book? Either way, this whole mess begins with the casual bartering of slaves by John Carter's son. Which of course causes the woman he loves, but turned him down because she is already betrothed, to need rescuing, which Carthoris is more than happy to start a war or two over. Needless to say we win the girl over, even though she has already said no. (Because what's better than a good old fashion lesson saying that if you get turned down you just have to keep asking and you get what you want). All tied up with a nice big bow of John Carter showing up for dramatic effect to save the day or blow some people up, which ever is fine. ( )

After the original Mars trilogy, Burroughs goes in another direction concentrating on other heroes of Mars. Carthoris, son of John Carter and Dejah Thoris, looks for the abducted princess Thuvia. The book features one of Burroughs' most original creations, Kar Komak the phantom bowman. ( )

This fourth part of the Barsoom series is a very good read. Some new groups of inhabitants of Barsoom are introduced, and the story is good. The main character in this book is not John Carter (who only appears in a few lines) but his son Carthoris. He has to save Thuvia, who has been abducted. Because rumours have been spread that Carthoris abducted her, he also has to save her and his own honor. ( )

The ending left a lot to be desired; it wrapped things up too nicely & quickly. Up to that point, another thrilling adventure ride. ( )

Book description
Captive of the Green Horde

Carthoris saw Thuvia dragged to the foot of the rostrum. He saw Hortan Gur address her. He could not hear the Torquasian jeddak's words, nor Thuvia's reply, but it must have angered the green monster, for Carthoris saw him leap toward the prisoner, striking her a cruel blow across the face.
Then the son of John Carter, Warlord of Barsoom, went mad. His half-Earth muscles sent him in enormous leaps and bounds toward the vile creature who had struck the woman he loved.
Before the green warriors of Hortan Gur could respond, there came from the beleaguered city across the plains a fearsome sound - and from the gates issued a threat far more deadly than the swordsman advancing upon them!
