Hilary Mantel has written about the short story collection His Last Fire:

‘This is the best kind of historical fiction: the past is freshly and energetically reimagined in Alix Nathan’s intricate and interweaving tales.  She cuts against cliché, against the received version, against cosiness.  She leaves her reader restless, curious, wanting more.  She is an original, with a virtuoso touch.’

In his Wall Street Journal review of the novel The Flight of Sarah Battle Allan Massie has written:

‘the vividness with which she portrays her heroine’s world makes it always interesting and often moving. The Flight of Sarah Battle is the work of a very talented novelist.’
