A freak storm on Mars throws Tara, Princess of Helium and beautiful daughter of John Carter, wildly off course after she embarks on an imprudent flight. Gahan, Jed of Gathol, her new admirer, takes off in pursuit and they soon find themselves in a land of bodies without heads and heads without bodies. In Chessmen of Mars, Edgar Rice Burroughs once again whirls the reader into an entertaining maelstrom of breakneck action.

I read this book in high school back in the sixties, and loved it. I got an electronic copy to reread because of the upcoming movie, "John Carter." I found the story as compelling today as I did back then; additionally, I found that the story included some barbs aimed at society that I missed as a teenager. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone that likes science fiction and fantasy.
