Publisher's Summary

"Thuvia, Maid of Mars" is a science fantasy novel from the "Barsoom" series. The principal characters are Carthoris (the son of John Carter of Mars) and Thuvia of Ptarth, each of whom appeared in the previous two novels. Carthoris is madly in love with Thuvia. This love was foreshadowed at the end of the previous novel. Unfortunately Thuvia is promised to Kulan Tith, Jeddak of Kaol. On Barsoom nothing can break an engagement between a man and woman except death, although the new suitor may not cause that death.

Thus it is that Thuvia will have none of him. This situation leaves Carthoris in a predicament. As Thuvia suffers the common Burroughsian heroine's fate of being kidnapped and in need of rescue, Carthoris' goal is abetted by circumstances. Thus he sets out to find the love of his life, igniting a war between the red nations of Barsoom as a result of being framed as the kidnapper of Thuvia.

This story was interesting.

I enjoyed the progression of the story. Although was abit annoyed by the change in narration from the first 3 books to this one. I dont have anything against Mr. Vincent, but was hoping to have Mr. Dufris narrating this one as well.

better than book 3

story line &characters more engaging than *war lord*. loved reading about Carthoris. loved Thuvia who makes up for Burroughs' need to have women kidnapped by kicking butt on her own account.
