Publisher's Summary

In this second volume of the Gorean Series, Tarl Cabot finds himself transported back to Counter-Earth from the sedate life he has known as a history professor on Earth. He is glad to be back in his role as a dominant warrior and back in the arms of his true love.
Yet, Tarl finds that his name on Gor has been tainted, his city defiled, and all those he loves have been made into outcasts. He is no longer in the position of a proud warrior, but an outlaw for whom the simplest answers must come at a high price. He wonders why the Priest Kings have called him back to Gor, and whether it is only to render him powerless.

book 2, strong start, cheat ending

If your reading this, then you have probably already read book one Tarnsman of Gor, so I don't need to go on about John Norman's world where women are property and that is the way they like it. In this book our hero ends up in a city where women rule, so of course love his illegal. It turns out women secretly want to be slaves to men, even when the men don' want to be there masters. I like to visit used book stores and through the years I kept seeing this series of Gor books, which seem to be very popular in paperback, but never made it to hardback. Was this an underground movement? It helped that the covers usually had scantly clad women on them, usually tied up. If you are a teenage boy, hoping for some sex scenes, forget it. The book is full of women who are naked and the author will usually say something like she was beautiful, but that is the extent of it.

This story started out strong, I enjoyed the world that JN created and was getting lost in the action. I also found that the author is not a hack, he can write, (I bet he writes more acceptable books under a different name.) Then in chapter fourteen he starts to cheat and that starts to ruin the rest of the story. Our hero is in an arena and is suppose to be devoured by one of the more feared animals on the planet, when low and behold it's just happens to be his Tarn from six years before. The animal not only remembers him, but goes out of it's way to protect and help him escape. Up to this point this was a five star book. The author does redeem himself later in a underground mining captive scene that I liked. Then we get some more really lucky coincidences. Overall I liked this book slightly more then the first and if you haven't read the first, you really don't need to start there. I am hoping the author grows in his abilities in the rest of the series, as I do want to continue with it.

Fun adventure, but Lots of naked women

I like John Norman's books from an adventure standpoint, however, I must admit that knowing that every woman at some point is going to lose her clothes becomes at a point quite tedious. For some the master slave relationships might get on your nerves as well, but happily there is enough adventure to move the story along and keep most readers entertained. This volume tends to lag a bit, but it is important to lead into the next.
