#TPQ5: ALEXANDER WALLIS

The Darkness That Comes Before – R. Scott Bakker

I felt such kinship with the protagonist’s struggle to defeat evil, even though his own soul was lost.

Nineteen Eighty-Four – George Orwell

A warning of the horror of absolute power. Despite which, love blooms in all its frailty.

V for Vendetta – Alan Moore

I was spellbound by the mystery, tragedy and painful beauty of this story.

The Vampire Lestat – Anne Rice

Anne Rice’s vision of immortals confronting the savage garden of existence, thrilled my heart!

Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte

Emily Bronte’s epic on the elemental force of love, its rapturous peaks and dark valleys, speaks to my soul.


Alexander Wallis is the author of The Way Knight: A Tale of Revenge and Revolution.
