Publisher's Summary

Stranded on the planet Venus, known as Amtor to its inhabitants, Earthman Carson Napier has faced countless perils to win the hand of the courageous Duare, his beloved princess, and to be bestowed with high honors and the title of prince in the powerful nation of Korva. But when a new threat strikes from out of the skies, Carson discovers his own arrival on the planet years ago may have unknowingly led the mysterious enemy to attack.

Following a trail of destruction and death, Carson, Duare, and their friends set off across wild Amtor to track down the lethal adversary. Their journey leads them headlong into battle with the Linneauns, an ancient, seemingly indestructible race dating to the dawn of the planet. But that is not Carson’s only challenge. For even as he takes on these daunting foes, an uncanny phenomenon has entangled him with two strange individuals from beyond spacetime and threatens to drive him mad. Will Carson be able to solve the mysteries of his past and the enigmatic visitors and then defeat the terrifying menace - or will the nations of Amtor be crushed beneath the Linneauns’ heel?

Includes Pellucidar: Dark of the Sun by Christopher Paul Carey, an all-new bonus novelette introducing the Edgar Rice Burroughs Universe’s newest heroine, Victory Harben!

Larger-than-life technicolor style

I'm loving everything about the relaunch of the Edgar Rice Burroughs universe and especially enjoyed this first novel from Matt Betts set on the Amtor that Burroughs first imagined. I have read a few of Burroughs' books and am familiar with the aspects that have made it into the larger popular culture like Tarzan but I am by no means an expert. However, you do not need any prior experience with Burroughs to enjoy this book. It's non-stop action with plenty of alien races, odd happenings and sneering villains to keep you entertained in larger-than-life technicolor style. But if you are a Burroughs fan you will appreciate the attention to detail that ERB has shown. I loved the meta nature of the introduction in which Betts tells us how he "received" this story from Carson himself, just the way Burroughs purported to be only a transcriptionist. The pulp style of bold moves and brash banter has been retained but I love the way Betts injects a subtle self-deprecating humor that modernizes the characters a bit. If you are looking for an escape this is highly recommended. I have both the limited edition and the audio version and would note that the reader also does a great job of capturing the swagger and humor of Betts' Carson
