    Been a while since I read them, but as I recall they do start off far more as a dark unknown evil to the reader and then, though the story, you get little bits or more info about the riders revealed. I think most of the info in the film appears in the Lord of the Rings books - I don't think there is much that is not contained within them and which is taken from other works of Tolkien

    The Hobbit won't tell the story of the Black Riders - it rather tells the story of Bilbo and the finding of the One Ring as well as some other events.
    The Silmarillion will go far more into the history of the riders and of middle earth itself; but its rated as very hard book to read. Mostly because its not really a reading book, but more a collection of linked short stories that aims to begin to build the history of middle earth itself.

    I'd focus on getting through LotR itself first

    It's too bad that they haven't explane it at Bree (Prancing pony) it would be much more exciting now when i know who are they,if i haven't watched the moveis then i would not know that they are the Nazgul and one of them the witch king of Angmar



    One friend of myne told me that maybe they will told me more about them in Rivindell
