The focus of the novel

In this novel the focus shifts from John Carter, Warlord of Mars, and Dejah Thoris of Helium, protagonists of the first three books in the series, to their son, Carthoris, prince of Helium, and Thuvia, princess of Ptarth. Helium and Ptarth are both prominent Barsoomian city state/empires, and both Carthoris and Thuvia were secondary characters in the previous novel. (From Source: Wikipedia).

About the book

Thuvia, Maid of Mars is a science fiction novel by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the fourth of the Barsoom series. The principal characters are the Son of John Carter of Mars, Carthoris, and Thuvia of Ptarth, each of whom appeared in the previous two novels. (From Source: Wikipedia).

Answer to Terrible edition

The edition specified was done for Quiet Vision by a third party and was discontiuned years ago. This edition's cover is a reproduction of the original St. John dust jacket. All the original St. John interiors are present. Quiet Vision not longer uses outside printers and binders.

One of the Better Mars Books

More similar in its simplicity to a Princess of Mars than Gods/Warlord. John Carter's son engages in search for abducted Thuvia, while he remains the prime suspect in her abduction. Usual strange meetings and stranger neighborhoods, but this story is a little less frenentic than Gods/Warlord, and both Carthoris and Thuvia are solid characters.

Outstanding, although not as good as it's prequels

It's hard to describe the fulfillment one feels after reading anyone of the books in Burrough's series. The complete dominance of honor, and the constant heroism and adventure in these books is heart warming, as well as thrilling. In this part of the series, somewhat to my dissappointment, John Carter is no longer telling the story, but his son, Carthoris, is. Readers of the first three books don't be alarmed however! Carthoris is "just as good a story teller as his father." And the story is just as exciting.
