She then becomes the prisoner of the evil Kaldanes whose cannibalistic tendencies are unleashed against her. Everyone's fate is at stake with a deadly game of Martian chess.

George Lucas said that one-third of his inspiration for the Star Wars movies came from this series of books. This book was originally publishes in the newspaper Argosy All Story Weekly and the next year in hardback edition. The book is said to be the most thought provoking and imaginative books in the entire Burroughs series.
