In this 10th volume of John Norman's Gor series, Tarl Cabot must prove his final loyalty to the harsh and caste-bound planet known as counter-earth. "Surrender Gor," reads a message sent from the Others, a mysterious people from the worlds of steel. Either the proud rulers of Gor submit or be destroyed. Now Tarl Cabot is leaving the decadent city of Port Kar to wander in the wilds of Gor, taking up the sword to defend his rulers and enemies, the Priest-kings. For he knows that the fate of his home planet, Earth, is inextricably tied to the fate of Gor.

Lister is the Voice of Gor
"Too much regurgitation on slavery. Little story."
This book spent even more time focused on retelling the "I am a women so I and a slave" story. This is something you end of getting numb to in previous books but i literally skipped 1/3 to 1/2 of this book on skimming fast forward to get past this drivel. A great story is hidden here behind all of this meaningless slave talk.
Honestly getting 10 books into the series shows a profound determination to search of the great stories in these books. Most of the books are fairly easy to skip through the gratuitous slave segways. This book seemed to dive deep into retelling the same thing over and over and has tested my patience to the limit. These books would be amazing if the author would allow some editing to make a PG version that slimmed down the slave talk.
He's growing on me. The first book Tarnsman of Gor was rough.. very rough. He's gotten significantly better as he gets into the series.
Less preaching about female slavery. Some of it is fine to help define the world and culture but the constant bombardment of "I am a female, I am slave" really takes away from the story.
