Thuvia, Maid of Mars is a science fantasy novel by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs, the fourth of 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. 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.

Her shapely, sandalled foot tapped impatiently upon the jewel-strewn walk that wound beneath the stately sorapus trees across the scarlet sward of the royal gardens of Thuvan Dihn, Jeddak of Ptarth, as a dark-haired, red- skinned warrior bent low toward her, whispering heated words close to her ear. "Ah, Thuvia of Ptarth," he cried, "you are cold even before the fiery blasts of my consuming love!

Talk about Thuvia Maid of Mars (John Carter of Mars)

I read the first book in the “Barsoom” series as a story in the “Steam Punk Megapack” collection. It is pure action/adventure and I really enjoyed it! I then went to Wikipedia and discovered there are eleven books total in the series. The last book is really two separate stories. These books are all fun and easy to read.

I discovered that many of the individual titles in the series are free at Amazon for the Kindle, particularly the first five. Then the stories seem to come in collections for a price. I suggest avoiding the collections based on the negative reviews that I read. I was able to acquire all of the books eventually as single Kindle books.

Two books, numbers 8 and 10 (I believe), I was able to get by googling the titles. They were in Kindle format and free! Check out feedbooks.com. I did not know before this that the Kindle format is available outside of the Amazon Web Site. I could not get these two books through Amazon.

Book eleven is available at Amazon Kindle but the Title is listed as: “John Carter on Mars.” In Wikipedia it is listed as: “John Carter of Mars.” I believe the two stories: “John Carter and the Giant of Mars” & “Skeleton Men of Jupiter” can be acquired for free as separate titles at feedbooks.com if you prefer “free”.

I love his writing style. I find myself flying through the pages. It is fantasy stuff, maidens in distress, monsters, heroes, and warrior princesses. What's not to like? The books were written in simpler times when sex was implied and violence was surreal. They appeal to children and adults alike because they stimulate the imagination and satisfy our desire for good to triumph over evil.
In a Paris Review interview, Ray Bradbury said of Burroughs that "Edgar Rice Burroughs never would have looked upon himself as a social mover and shaker with social obligations. But as it turns out – and I love to say it because it upsets everyone terribly – Burroughs is probably the most influential writer in the entire history of the world." Bradbury continued that "By giving romance and adventure to a whole generation of boys, Burroughs caused them to go out and decide to become special." I agree, and girls enjoy them too.

"Thuvia, Maid of Mars" is the fourth book in Edgar Rice Burroughs' groundbreaking Barsoom series. It was originally published in 1916 in All-Story Weekly and then as a novel in 1920. Like the first three novels in the series, "Thuvia, Maid of Mars" is a swashbuckling tale of derring-do and adventure, taking place on the dying planet Mars. It differs from the first three tales in that, instead of following the adventures of John Carter, it follows the adventures of his son, Carthoris, who, like his father, spends his time attempting to rescue a princess in danger, Thuvia, who first appeared in "The Gods of Mars."

This novel involves palace intrigue with nobles from three nations attempting to secure the hand of Thuvia, Princess of Ptarth. It involves not just palace intrigue, but a mighty battle where the navies of the great powers of Mars (or Barsoom as the natives call it) face each other in something like when the English faced off against the great Spanish Armada.

This novel also involves some science fiction aspects (apart from taking place on another planet) in that an ancient race that somehow survived the drying up of Mars' mighty oceans can create things and people and warriors with just their thoughts. This is a theme that was explored at length in many other science fiction novels and even in Star Trek episodes. Burroughs spends much time in this novel not just writing about Carthoris' adventures, but also exploring the philosophical ends of such things as mental creation and what is real and what is fantasy. Can these ancient people survive on just imaginary food? Can imaginary arrows kill Green Martians? Are the bowmen brought into existence to defend the city any less real flesh and blood than the men who bring them into existence? Is it necessary for imaginary archers to eat and make camp?

Even though the Barsoomian adventures of John Carter and his son involve flying airships and ray guns, most Barsoomians prefer to do battle hand to hand with swords. They also act with a code of honor and do not slay women. Thus, to read one of these tales is to bring an adventure of the knights of the middle ages and their chivalry to life, just on another planet where the various city-states vie against each other for honor.

If you are looking for a terrific adventure story, this is your ticket.
