I saw on Twitter that the book is currently free on Amazon in both the UK and US this weekend, I downloaded it and have started it, I’m 20% through and it seems fairly good.
Whilst looking for reviews I came across this author interview with Alexander Wallis the author of The Way Knight and thought I would share it with you all in case the book interests any of you.
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.
Daimonia 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.
