1828: Matthew Hervey of the Sixth Light Dragoons has been urgently recalled to South Africa. The stability of the Cape Colony has been threatened by Xhosa tribesmen who have been making incursions across the borders.

When Hervey is told by his old friend, Sir Eyre Somervile, that the Zulu warrior king, Shaka, is about to make war on neighbouring tribes, he knows that matters are perilous indeed.

Leaving his new wife and young daughter in England, Hervey speeds to his friend's aid. He and Somervile journey to meet the Zulu king, but Shaka's royal kraal is a horrifying place. The sentinels at the gates are corpses, and it is soon apparent that Shaka has slaughtered thousands of his own people. Into this febrile atmosphere ride Hervey, Somervile and their escort of dragoons and mounted rifles.

But the sudden death of the Zulu king plunges the region into civil war, with Hervey and his men into terrible danger. Yet worse is to come. Separated from his troop, Hervey must lead Shaka's queen across a hostile and perilous land where sanctuary has never seemed further away. Download and start listening now!

    " I forget what the precious Mr hervey was up to. He hasn't grown much as a character. But still, much better than either David Saul or Harry Sidebottom. Those two should stick to their lecturing. Mallinson at least was a soldier (maybe Saul was otoo, I don't know) "

    " A bit slow at the beginning, which could have been my fault expectiing a different style. I enjoyed the story and will keep my eye open for more of Mr Mallison's books. "

    " Waterloo with British cavalry. A few literary pretensions with Jane Austen references, but hey it's the first in the series. "

    " Patrick O'Brian's Captain Aubrey joins the dragoons..."Pride & Prejudice" in uniform. "

    " Could this be a worthy followup to Master and Commander, Sharpe and Flashman?

    After a slow start, I started to enjoy this series - sort of a 'Sharpe on a Horse'. What is most intriguing about this series is that it's hard to find. Had to get through Alibris. "

    " Has the flavour of a Patrick O'Brian book, but falls short of in terms of the richness of the characters and without the fascination of learning nautical language is a poor second to his writing. "
