THE WAY KNIGHT - a dark fantasy by Alexander Wallis

I am a social educator, working with young people considered 'troubled'. I wrote The Way Knight to provoke people. To recall the innocence of having questions instead of opinions. To take stock of all the moral compromises we make. To re-experience the tension of not-knowing instead of knowing.


Daimonia Vornir is a wild and impulsive girl, who fears she is unlovable. When corrupt politicians execute her brother, she travels to find her mother — the famous hero who abandoned her years before. To survive the treacherous journey, she hires the Way Knight — a travelling warrior sworn to protect anyone who pays his fee, no matter how dangerous the journey, or hopeless their cause. Together they will chance the battle-torn coast, pursued by the champion of the Secret God. THE WAY KNIGHT is the terrifying tale of a girl’s journey from child, to woman, to goddess. It is a provocative story that will challenge everything you believe.
