La was in trouble. The high priestess of the Flaming God in the ancient city of Opar – forgotten outpost of Atlantis – had been betrayed by her people and locked in the eon-haunted dungeons until Tarzan came to rescue her. La still loved Tarzan, but Tarzan had brought her to his people, and then left her. Now, together with a strange woman of Tarzan’s kind, she lay bound in the tent of an Arab slave-trader, dreading her certain fate. Meanwhile Tarzan was beset by a strange band of men who had invaded his land… led by a madman bent on evil subversion!

Edgar Rice Burroughs is one of the world’s most popular authors. With no previous experience as an author, he wrote and sold his first novel,  A Princess of Mars in 1912. In the ensuing thirty-eight years until his death in 1950, Burroughs wrote ninety-one books and a host of short stories and articles. Although best known as the creator of the classic Tarzan of the Apes and John Carter of Mars, his restless imagination knew few bounds. Burroughs’s prolific pen ranged from the American West to primitive Africa and on to romantic adventure on the moon, the planets, and even beyond the farthest star.
