With the tavern where he works as well as life as he knows it literally on fire, Elyot takes the only possible way out. Down into the sewers that lead deeper into the catacombs. No one knows for sure what lurks in the depths. But every child knows the stories.
He just wants to lead his new companions Keani and Alextra to safety. But with the enforcers dogging their steps and the caverns themselves conspiring to drive the three ever deeper, any hope for safety vanishes.
The three know what the enforcers intend. But what lurks in the deep? Just might be worse.
“The Maze and the Maw” is the second episode in the ongoing monthly science fiction adventure serial TALES OF THE CHAI MAKHANI TRIO.
