Praise for David Gilman:
'What Gilman does superlatively is heart-pounding action.'
--Amanda Craig, The Times
'Gilman has just proved himself to be rather excellent. … In David Gilman I see flashes of brilliance that surpass Bernard Cornwell. ' --Bookbag
'If you only read one historical debut this year, make it this one. The prose is sharper than a bodkin arrow, the pace faster than thought and to be honest it was a book that I just couldn't put down without being left to wonder what was next for the lead hero... Great stuff.' --Gareth Wilson, Falcata Times
