At the end of the first book, A Princess of Mars, John Carter is unwillingly transported back to Earth. The Gods of Mars begins with his arrival back on Barsoom (Mars) after a 10-year separation from his wife, Dejah Thoris; his unborn child; and the Red Martian people of the nation of Helium, whom he has adopted as his own. Unfortunately Carter materializes in the one place on Barsoom from which nobody is allowed to depart: the Valley Dor, which is the Barsoomian afterlife.

This was difficult to get through. I’m leaving the series after my experience with this blandly written book. Such a shame as I loved the first book so much.

I was afraid it'd be too long and monotonous

I was wrong! This is now my favorite book I've listened to on audible. It's absolutely wonderful. John Lee did a fantastic job of narrating the different voices. He really brought the story alive. I listened to it on my morning drive to work, my lunch breaks, going home, and all the time I could while home. It went by fast and I miss it now. A beautiful story!
