Praise for The Nizam's Daughters (The Matthew Hervey Adventures: 2)

A marvellous read, paced like a well-balanced symphony ... This is more than a ripping yarn...I look forward enormously to hearing more of Hervey's exploits; he is as fascinating on horseback as Jack Aubrey is on the quarterdeck.

The Times

'This is an engaging work...The attention to detail is admirable'

Daily Express

Allan Mallinson's grasp of the technical side of his subject is effortless and impressive...The portrayal of the men of all ranks is excellent ...This promises to be an extremely enjoyable series

Spectator

Treads a middle course between the subtleties of O'Brian and the simplicities of Cornwell...An exciting, fast-moving story, full of bloody hacking with sabre and tulwar.

Evening Standard

'O'Brian's equal in accurate knowledge of the equipment, methods, weapons and conditions of serve of the fighting men of whom he writes...An imaginative feat of high order, owning as much to thorough scholarship as it does to compassion and sensibility... Brilliantly conveyed'

Country Life

'An epic adventure...a book with a texture as rich as cut velvet, and a storyline as detailed as a Bruges tapestry. Patrick O'Brian may no longer be with us. But Mallinson has obviously taken up the historical baton'

The Birmingham Post

'Allan Mallinson...has already achieved a considerable priase for his brand of derring-do in his first novel, A Close Run Thing...a début of real excitement and verve. With The Nizam's Daughters, the author has overcome the second hurdle with equal aplomb...Mallinson is a genuine storyteller'
