Not quite as strong as Gods of Mars -- at this point the pulp tropes are starting to wear a bit thin. Carter disguises himself as yet another race of Martians, infiltrates their highest echelons, eventually gets himself put in charge. Again! Also, there are a couple hilarious bits in the prose that come off tone-deaf to the modern reader -- obvious goofs that make Carter look like a bumbling idiot. Still a fun read, though.
