Right now I’m writing in a Books-A-Million. They seem to be affiliates of Barnes and Noble though they appear more Borders-like. Anyway…
My name is Kathryn Faye or at least that’s my pseudonym used on my novel series “Death Walkers.” I know you are probably wondering where the hell it is in the stores… well it’s not in them yet! One day… that is my hope. What this blog serves for me is a chance to talk about my Death Walkers… interview them and the books and also to enjoy reading and commenting on other books that I get my hands on.
ALL books! Not just mine!
With that said… why “Neutral Plains.” Well the Neutral Plains is a holding cell or a Purgatory shall we say for spirits that have not been born yet or are seeking to claim rebirth. The judgment place in my little world. It is also where the Revenants originated.
Revenants are ghosts that, for whatever reason, decided they did not want to accept their fate of death and believe that if they consume enough soul energy they will regenerate their decomposing bodies and live again. Guess what… it WORKS!
Now the gods find this irritating to their plan, especially since it was one of them who created these abominations. Therefore, to counter-act and protect their precious humans, they create the Death Walkers. Together they are neutral spirits who had never experienced life and the bias of being human, and were recruited to become beings who were charged to safely escort innocent spirits back to the Neutral Plains AND to hunt down and eliminate the Revenant abomination.
The god who created the Revenants, seeing this, rebelled and breached the barrier to let the Revenants on Earth. Now Death Walkers must be born into human bodies to destroy them before they destroy the humans, thereby forcing an apocalypse of sorts. Three major problems with that:
1. To be born on Earth, each soul was split into TWO Death Walker beings on Earth
2. Each Death Walker only has 5,000 years of life on Earth
3. They must find their Soul – other half – to bring more Death Walkers in
Not all find their Souls. When they do not all can keep them. Some are even forced to slay their Souls. One thing is certain… if the Death Walkers lose this battle, it won’t be just the humans who face annihilation…
