When what appears to be the original Pandora's Box is
discovered in an ancient city, neighboring countries fight
for ownership and unleash a terrible plague.
The Pandora Room is New York Times bestselling
author Christopher Goldenâ€™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 Pandoraâ€™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 worldâ€™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 taleâ€”a chamber which contains a single jar.
â€śWeird shitâ€ť expert Ben Walker joins Sophieâ€™s team just as
the mystery deepens and grows ugly. Those who believe the
myth want to know which 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
arenâ€™t waiting for the dust to settle. Whatever the jar
contains, they want it, no matter who they have to killâ€¦or
what will emerge when they open it. For Sophie, Walker, and
the others, the Pandora Room may soon become their tomb.
