In the battle for the Underworld there can be only one victor. Will a witch, her Companion and her friend be the next victims of Lord Sesnas, High Priest of Seth, or will he be defeated by the forces of good? Let battle commence ...This childrens fantasy novel of magic, ghosts, ghuls and an Egyptian curse will be enjoyed by 10/11 year olds upwards. It takes place in Glasgows incredible Victorian cemetery - the Necropolis - and an ancient Egyptian Palace of the Afterlife.The first book of the series - The Devils Creature in the City of the Dead - was a gory Gothic tale for older teenagers who enjoy horror. Though this new story is less gruesome than its predecessor there are enough shocks and thrills to keep lovers of the genre fully involved. Meet the Egyptian Goddess Ma-at and her terrifying beast, Ammit, the hideously ugly giant creature that looks as if it has been fashioned from parts hacked from a lion, a crocodile and a hippopotamus and then jumbled into a strange, confusing mass.Colonel Calum Harris MacKintosh discovers a tomb on Al-Qurn, in the hills above the Valley of the Kings. While his partners are in Luxor for supplies he breaks into the tomb and lifts the jar holding the heart of Lord Sesnas, evil Magician, Vizier and Chief Architect to Pharaoh Merneptah. Voices scream at MacKintosh from the wall and figures start to appear. MacKintosh drops the jar and flees. But hes too late - he is already cursed. He returns to Glasgow but is never a well man, and the following year dies in agony and fear on the anniversary of his entrance into Sesnas tomb. He is taken to Lord Sesnas Palace of the Afterlife, where he is to serve the evil Vizier for eternity and feed him with his soul.Once a year the Colonel is allowed to return to his own grave for three days of peace.This is where Mhairi, Jet and Dougie discover the haggard and bedraggled ghost of the Colonel and persuade him to tell his story. Lord Antoninus - the cruel Lord of the undead ghuls - learns of their plan to help MacKintosh. This knowledge gives him the opportunity to take revenge on the friends for the defeat they had inflicted on him.Because of Antoninus the three friends are swept through the Earth to Lord Sesnas tomb, where they battle the evil Vizier and his Grey Guard for Colonel MacKintoshs soul and to prevent Lord Sesnas from taking control of the Underworld.Also available by this author: The Devils Creature in the City of the Dead
