Teaser Tuesday - Warlord of Mars

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


After his war against the First Born, John Carter waits anxiously to determine the fate of his beloved Dejah Thoris...

The Tease:
 "For six long Martian months I had haunted the vicinity of the hateful Temple of the Sun, within whose slow-revolving shaft, far beneath the surface of Mars, my princess lay entombed - but whether alive or dead I knew not.  Had Phaidor's slim blade found that beloved heart? Time only would reveal the truth."
 -Warlord of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs
