Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy Under Seige (2017)
Fiction Review by The Gravedigger
02.26.21

Tarzan: The Greystoke Legacy Under Seige (2017) The fourth book in ERB's "The Wild Adventures of Tarzan" takes the character in a direction in which he officially needed to be taken. That is, into the modern world. Tarzan and Jane maintain their compound in Africa, where his son Korak and wife Meriem also live. Korak's son, Jackie, primarily works in London and is in charge of the Greystoke Trust, a massively wealthy organization. Jackie has been in a wheelchair since the accident in which is wife was killed. And Jackie's son, Jonathan, is a young man ambivalent about his ancestry, stemming from a bad experience he had with a lion in Africa. All is well.

Then, the African compound is blown up and the Greystone Trust is accused of capital crimes against England. To further complicate things, Korak is accused of having killed primatologist Diane Fossey, who he had been working with. At first, this is a lot of information and new characters to digest, but as the book progresses we get to know the grandson and great grandson and how they do, indeed, continue Tarzan's legacy. There's a bad guy, that ties into the original series, and a backdrop that can support a continuing series. And Tarzan, who is scarcely in the first half of the book, definitely makes his presence known as he resolves everything.

The only thing I thought odd is that it's never addressed why no one has aged- Tarzan, Korak (and their mates) and even Jackie, seem to be in their early thirties-which is explained by the events in the original TARZAN's QUEST novel (he has taken an elixir that prolongs life). But it's never mentioned in the context of the book. I think it would pose a problem and bring up a lot of questions from all the other people who deal with them (and would be a story unto itself). This aside, I really enjoyed this latest entry in THE WILD ADVENTURES OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGH's SERIES. Highly recommended.
