A mission to Hell....
Just 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!

This and the sequel, the Starfollowers of Coramonde are two of my all time favorite books. Alas, the narrator, who has a wonderful speaking voice, has managed to create the most jarring character voices I've heard in the many years that I've listened to audio books. His falsetto for the women's voices is very annoying.
Love the book! The issues I had with the reader may be a download issue.
I haven't read anything like Doomfarers.
Very robotic nararation (might have been the download) Although, I did not like the character voice he gave Gil. I think he gave Gil a John Wayne style voice and my interpertation of Gil is much younger. I was not thrilled with Andre's voice either.
Absolutely!!! Although I had some issue with two character voices, I understand it is subjective. Overall, I would recomend the book and I will listen to it again and again
I am going to listen to the book again through my Ipod instead of my Kindle to determine if the robotic tone may have been a download issue.
Characters that were better written and therefore believable.
The supporting characters were not developed enough and the plot was choppy.
The narration was decent he just didn't have much to work with.
The story started out well enough and the characters developed at first and then the characters became unbelievable and the plot became choppy. Might have been alright as a graphic novel or perhaps TV show.
Anyone who says they have only one life to live must not know how to read a book.
Well, it was a book, and there were words in it. It was not completely awful, but it was not anything to write a review about. I will not recommend this book to any reader that has a couple of brain cells.
