Under the trackless sands of the Sahara lies Zanthodon. That vast subterranean realm is the final homeland of the one-time masters of the world's surface - great dinosaurs, mighty jungles, and the living bands of primitive peoples from Neanderthals to Ancient Minoans and even Barbary Pirates!

It was into the cruel hands of those feared corsairs that Eric Carstairs' beloved

In the previous book, _Hurok of the Stone Age_, Carter has apparently split the narrative between the protagonists imprisoned in the secret city of Zar, and those protagonists involved in the pirate fortress city of El-Cazar, where this book is the latter of these threads. The story does better by ditching half the cast and telling of the other half in one consolidated block. This allows him to really dig into the events and setting of El-Cazar.

This particular part feels like it was grafted from

Fourth in the Underground World series focuses on cave girl Darya who is captured by pirates and taken to their island fortress. She is feisty and fiery and does not succumb to their nasty advances; eventually she is rescued by warriors in her tribe led by her father. Lots of references to breasts and nudity, probably for juvenile male audience. Much better than its predecessor "Hurok" (third book in the series). Sub-plot about descendants of the Minoans is terrible.

More of the same. This story is mostly about Darya and her time as a captive of the pirates. Some of the things that happen or don't happen are a stretch even for fiction. A quick read but oh so redundant.

A very rambling book. I'd give it probably 2 and a half stars. I enjoyed it at one level and it was an easy read. But it definitely did not have a coherent plot and there was a lot of coincidences involved.
