The Cursed Darkness
"Things have grown far worse, and the Shadows contain more horrors than any had thought..."
"Even now, strange shapes seemed to move within that place. I had done a thing which had never been done before, not during the whole of Oberon's reign: I had opened a new way to Amber. And I had opened it only to the worst."
It has been four years since Eric crowned himself king in Amber, blinded his brother Corwin, and threw him into the dungeons. However, Eric’s head has rested uneasy, bearing the crown. A dark and terrible force has manifested in the Valley of Garnath. Dark beings dwell there, who worship a mysterious force known only as the Logrus. The once beautiful valley has become twisted and corrupted by Corwin’s death curse, a representation of the hatred and anger Corwin bears for his brother. And now, Corwin has escaped from his dungeon cell, and has promised to return, no doubt seeking his vengeance....
