As I said about Doomfarers, this one is really a great read. It wouldn't make much sense without Doomfarers, but it develops the world nicely and provides a really good sense of completion. THe great characters from Doomfarers continue: Gil MacDonald recovers his sanity eventually, Springbuck grows up, and Yardiff Bey gets run through, but only after making a good play for the brass ring. And the supporting cast--van Duyn, the de Courtenays, Angorman, Reacher and Katya, etc. And the pace keeps up, never letting things slide.
Unlike the standard fantasy cliche nowdays, the Coramonde series has but two lean and mean books, not a trilogy or the multi-volume bloat that has become all too common these days. I'd love to have seen more in the world of course but not at the expense of quality. Alas they don't write 'em much like this anymore.

I read The Starfollowers of Coramonde when it first came out, along with its prequel, The Doomfarers of Coramonde, and I loved the story. It was then, and remains, a sidewise take on heroic fantasy, with the heroes not perfect (Prince Starbuck can't see well until he gets glasses) and villains very villainous.

Daley's untimely death put an end to his burgeoning writing career, and I am very glad to see some of his best work being released.

This is good stuff.

This is a review of the paperback version being provided, not the Brian Daily book itself. I had read both of Brian Daily's books back in the mists of time and still had my original paperback copy of the Doomfarers of Coramonde from 1977. I wanted to add the second book for nostalgia's sake, especially when I found Daily had died.

I thought I was purchasing an original paperback version of the book, but what I received is some kind of knock-off copy. The original paperback book has been scanned and then reproduced, not as typeset text, but as an image exactly the size of the original paperback, printed in the center of a much larger page. This leaves large (like 2") borders around the text. Photo-copy a paperback page at original size onto an 8x10 sheet of paper, and you'll have a good approximation of what's provided.

Look for the original book, Daily deserves it.

Wasn't worth the shipping charge to return or I would have.

I have no problem recommending the Doomfarers/Starfollowers duo as a good read, I would've given it 5 stars for content alone. I gave it 3 stars as a heads-up about something I think potential buyers ought to be made aware of. That is that the layout of the manuscript is that of the original Del Rey paperbacks, ie. the format is that of the 4"x7" paperbacks (which I have) with zero changes - same page layout, typefaces and all. For this 6"x9" printing I was expecting at least a larger typeface that would make use of the increased page area (my eyes are not what they used to be!) instead of an inch of blank space around every page. IMHO the publisher, iUniverse, is ripping off the reading public by charging $18 for what is effectively a $7 reprint on larger paper. That said, even had I known this I probably would have bought them at some point anyway (my other copies are showing their age and starting to lose pages) but at least I would have known what I was getting and could have waited for the price to drop to my comfort level. As it is, I just feel irritated at being duped...

This book, one of two in a series is well written, has a great theme and is good reading material for anyone interested in science fiction. I recommend this book. It is a shame that the author died as such a young age as I am sure there would have been many more great books coming from this man.

This, the sequel to the superior "Doomfarers of Coramonde" explains the aftermath of Prince Springbuck and Coramonde's war against his nemesis, Yardiff Bey: Archmage and manipulator of kingdoms and other worldly dimensions.

As a young man, I thrilled to these novels and the worlds they illustrated for my "Theater of the Mind" in the late 70's and early '80s. In the days before MMORPG and the Internet, Science Fiction channel and Hollywood's demand for the stories only then found in comics and fantasy novels, Brian Daley's mastery of the creation of political/social worlds is truly ahead of its time. Thirty years before the monster HBO hit "Game of Thrones", Starfollowers shows the aftermath of a kingdom won, the changing dynamics of allies and friends and the need for Honor to be served when an enemy, vanquished but not destroyed, comes back with a vengeance.

Written long before Saddam Hussain was vanquished in Desert Storm but not destroyed in the 10 years prior to 2003's Iraq War, which was dubbed Operation Iraqi Freedom by the United States, "The Starfollowers of Coramonde" is well executed and remarkably prescient (as science fiction often is) regarding the consequences of leaving a crusade under-won.

I read this and Doomfarers when they first came out during the horrid period in the 80s when fantasy was either new Conan novels or plain junk. Only Glen Cook's Black Company series kept me as entertained as these two books did. I can't recommend these two enough.
