Chapter 1 “On the River Iss”
At the conclusion of The Gods of Mars, we left John Carter at the fiendish Temple of the Sun in which his beloved Dejah Thoris has been imprisoned for a long Martian year. Jailed with Thuvia and Phaidor, both in love with her husband, we last saw her with Phaidor about to plunge a dagger into her heart – and then the smoke of the burning Temple of Issus blotted out the sight of what transpired next. A Martian year must elapse before Carter can learn the fate of his beloved princess of Helium.
