Okay, so, you hear the name “Death Walker” and you probably know immediately that you’re dealing with something evil, something that’s dead or at least un-dead, and something tremendously scary. (Or if you’re a certain kind of person, maybe you think you’re dealing with something evil, dead, and creepily cool.)
But what is a Death Walker?
For the ancient Egyptians to make it to the afterlife, they had to have their heart weighed by Anubis, the jackal-headed guardian of the underworld. If their heart was lighter than a feather, they could pass through to the afterlife. But if their heart was heavy, weighed down by bad deeds, the heart would be scarfed down by Ammit the Devourer—total oblivion.
The Death Walkers were evil men who knew they would fail the weighing of the heart ceremony. So after death, instead of passing through to the underworld, they used their powerful wills to cling to the edge of the afterlife . . .
Waiting for an opportunity to escape . . .
Waiting for thousands of years . . .
If you think that sounds creepy, wait until you meet the Death Walker in Book 2: Amulet Keepers! Get a sneak peek here
