They went on to write a novella and 2 full novels in which the Swifts continue their fight against evil. Christopher and Amber also wrote the radio drama Lights Out, a chilling tale set inside a women's prison. This was part of the BBC's Man in Black series. Now Amber has lent her vocal talents to the audiobook version of The Pandora Room.
For more information on this exciting audiobook I've included the official publisher summary from audible.com website. No copyright infringement is intended:
The Pandora Room is New York Times best-selling author Christopher Golden’s chilling exploration of what happens when the original Pandora's box is discovered in an ancient subterranean city, stirring international conflict and exposing the archaeological team to curses, whispers, and the terror of a legendary plague.
In one ancient variation on the myth of Pandora’s box, there were two jars, one for Pandora and one for her sister, Anesidora. One contained all the blessings of the gods; the other all the world’s curses. Now, in a subterranean city in Northern Iraq, archaeologist Sophie Durand has discovered a secret chamber covered in writing that confirms that version of the tale - a chamber that contains a single jar.
“Weird shit” expert Ben Walker joins Sophie’s team just as the mystery deepens and grows ugly. Those who believe the myth want to know you jar has been found in the Pandora Room, the one containing blessings or the one full of curses.
Governments rush to lay claim, but jihadi forces aren’t waiting for the dust to settle. Whatever the jar contains, they want it, no matter who they have to kill...or what will emerge when they open it. For Sophie, Walker, and the others, the Pandora Room may soon become their tomb.
