Not usually my type of book, I'm more of a modern military fiction reader, but nevertheless once I had started to read the book I couldn't put it down! A fictional story of the British army's time in India.

The writer as the gift of allowing the characters to develop as the story progresses and the content of the story appears to have been very well researched. A painstaking task at the best of times! I also like how the author has used a Cornish regiment as the basis of the story rather than using one of the more "glamorous" army regiments.

Overall, a generally good read and looking forward to any subsequent sequels!

A true epic novel of adventure, class boundaries, camaraderie with a smattering of detective work, a tinge of tenderness and a boxing match so good that it went to extra time. It's about individuals extending their horizons and growing into more fully ripe adults. This novel is partially set in India just before the first world war. It is a work that takes us to a very good space and invokes a bygone age and psyche. However, "Tallon's Kill" is not a whimsical or sentimental glimpse into the past; it is an accurate composite of history that has been carefully and rigorously researched. It is a story that captures a unique historical era for future generations to enjoy.

The story itself is extremely well written and the plots and the interactions between the characters are very good. I highly recommend this book. If that's not enough to tempt you... there are tigers too!!!!

"Tallon's Kill", by S. D. Drew is definitely a worthwhile read!

This is a well researched book with great attention to detail regarding the setting, India at the time of World War I, the military of this period and their training. The characters are extremely credible and Tallon's development within the story is both interesting and entertaining. I hope there is a sequel!
I would recommend this novel without hesitation.,

Tallon's Kill is an eruditely written book. S. Drew skilfully uses the lexis of the time in which his story unfolds to realistically create the atmosphere of the era. Additionally, the vernacular used by his characters supports their class, education and position in society, making the book very credible.

His clever writing style makes his characters very believable and adds to their development. The book follows the evolution of Tallon as he finds his way in the world and passes through the scrapes of life that finally give him the strength of character to face his most powerful and final adversary at the climax of his travels.

Thoroughly enjoyable and would definitely recommend. A must read if you want to be transported back to an enigmatic time, which had mystique and charm; but could be cold and hard too.

5.0 out of 5 stars with good character development and were a delight 21 Feb. 2015
By harold r. hicks - Published on Amazon.com

The Talon's Warpath books 1 & 2 are some of the most intriging and interesting reading I have done in recent months. Both books are well written, action is superb, with good character development and were a delight.The description of the life of an English "Tommy", as portayed by the main character during the time of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, must have been seriously researched, complete with the defects of a waning class system. These books are worth reading from both the historical and military perspective.
