MISSION to HELLJust yesterday, Sergeant Gil MacDonald and his APC crew had been fending off an ambush in a Viet Nam jungle. In the middle of the firefight, some kind of magic spell had transported them to this Fantasy Land complete with flying dragons, wizards, crazy castles, and dispossessed princes.They would stay trapped here forever unless they could rescue the sorceress Gabrielle. Master magician, Amon, held her captive in his palace; and to reach her, Gil and his men would have to infiltrate Hell itself!

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTELY FABULOUS!!!! April 4, 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I'm sure most of us got started on Brian Daley through his Han Solo trilogy like I did. Then my cousin brought this book over called "The Doomfarers of Coramonde" and since it was from the author of some of my fav. Star Wars books, I gave it a shot. Boy am I glad that I did! An Armored Personnel Carrier gets [snatched] out of the middle of a fight [and sent] to another reality where they have to slay a dragon and rescue a sorceress... and that's only a small bit! It was very readable and believable (for a fantasy story). Of all Mr. Daley's books, this and "The Starfollowers of Coramonde" are probably my favorite that he's written. I still have to read the GammaLAW books and Tron, so my opinion *might* be subject to change, but for now, "The Doomfarers of Coramonde" and "The Starfollowers of Coramonde" remain my favorites.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite book January 4, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I re-read the Doomfarers and Starfollowers at least once every year. Mr. Daley was one of those authors who threw you right into the action within the first few pages and unfolded the history and detail as he went. Brian Daley served in the Army and it shows in the books attention to detail. I highly recommend.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a first novel February 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I can't believe this book is out of print. Brian Daley is an underrated Sci-Fi/Fantasy writer. He only had 10 novels pulished up until the GammaLaw saga. Fans should try to find this one. In it, Prince Springbuck, rightful heir to the throne of Coramonde enlists the aid of Gabrielle and Andre DeCourtney-a pair of sorcerers-and their friend Edward van Duyn from our reality. Together they transport Gil MacDonald and his armored tank-like machine to kill a dragon beset upon them by the evil wizard Yardiff Bey. Gil goes back to his time to retrieve some things, then returns to help Springbuck regain his throne. The story leads into the Starfollowers of Coramonde book. A pretty good story with the fantasy elements thrown around like afterthoughts. 4 stars cause it works.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally good read July 26, 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Though this book and its companion are now out of print, don't hestitate to buy them used. Like other reviewers here, I have read the Coramonde duology many times over the years, and enjoyed every reading. Though not high literature, these are two of the most readable and entertaining books I've ever read, and a personal benchmark for simply pleasurable fiction.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Sci-Fi Adventure May 11, 1999
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've read this and the sequel (Starfollowers of Coramonde) many times over. One of my favorites of all time. The story is fast paced, and the characters are extremely believable. romance, humor, pitched battles and hair raising terror all under one title.

5.0 out of 5 stars People OTHER than gamers get taken to a fantasy world! January 7, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
An excellent pair of books. The book has a very "real" feel to it. The characters tend to act more like people some of the other top authors.

Brain Daley was a rare talent. He will be missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars A splended mix of fantasy and sci-fi adventure! November 26, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a consummate Star Wars fan. Brian Daley wrote the scripts for the NPR Radio Adaptations of the original Star Wars trilogy. It was something I grew up with, and still listen to today. Truly, a masterpiece of writing, voicing, and audio post-production. Sadly, the world will not benefit from any new Daley material, as he has become one with the Force. But, when I saw his Coramonde duology at the local used book store, I eagerly grabbed it, as I'd not read any of his non-Star Wars work. This first novel in the 2-book set surprised me at many turns. For one, his masterful command of the English language had me looking up words left and right. I felt as if I were prepping for a go at the SAT verbal section. Secondly, where else will you find a novel that appeared as typical fantasy story with princes and kingdoms, but that has such surprises inside as science-fiction gizmos including inter-dimensional travel, Vietnam war battle scenes, and don't forget the vocabulary lessons. If you enjoy wizards, demons, ogres, grenades, dragons, magic, machine guns, epic battle scenes, castle sieges, knights, hand-to-hand combat, lizard men, tanks, trips to hell, a smattering of tasteful love scenes, and don't mind pulling out the dictionary, I think you'll enjoy this book, just like I did. Bravo, Brian, and R.I.P.!

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is the movie series? June 1, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
This 2 book series is quite good, though dated a bit, due to the Vietnam references. Transpose the current conflict for Vietnam, however and the novel doesn't suffer in the least. Daley was very talented and was able to generate, better than most, decent 3 dimensional characters very quickly. The fantasy, swashbuckler feel of this book and it's companion book "The Starfollowers of Coramonde", make for great summer fare. Give it a whirl, if you're a fan of the fantasy genre, you like it. If you're not, it's an easy enough read to maybe convert you! I truly wish someone would option this series for a movie(s) or miniseries.
