Egyptian Book of the Dead

Can anyone give me some examples of the trials a newly-deceased soul would have to face in the underworld, as discribed by the Egyptian Book of the Dead (and any related Egyptian texts)? Specifically, I'd like episodes with demons and other nasty things, as I am going to have a character go through these trials and I'd like her ordeal to be dramatic (not to mention traumatic). I've been searching around, but I've only been able to find vague references to the exsistance of said trials and things about the weighing of the soul, which isn't really what I'm looking for.

Thanks for any help in advance!
