Who captured them? Why were they taken? What does their captor want from them? What can the riddles mean? Who are they?
Lacking allies and options, the duo must learn to trust one another. Mazes, puzzles, and even strange, lurking creatures force them to rely on their wits--and each other--for survival. But survival isn't enough. They need answers.
Will the answers be enough? Will the truth bring them closer together, or drive them forever apart? Will discovering their identities finally bring them home?
Saffron Bryant's Review
This book had an excellent premise; two people completely lost, without their memories, in some kind of puzzle maze. Here I was expecting some kind of Saw experience, or at least some good problem solving, unfortunately that’s not what I got.
The first scene met my initial expectations; a strange room with many doors and locks and keys but from there the momentum plateaued.
I found the characters quite shallow and inconsistent and the helpless whining female character made me want to put the book aside (a pet peeve). Very little of the story actually took place in any kind of puzzle maze and in the end the book was actually more sci-fi than mystery.
However, even as a fan of sci-fi I wasn’t overly impressed. The story was confusing and it’s not until the very end that you find out what’s actually happening. Unfortunately while that’s kind of what you’d expect from a mystery book I don’t think it worked for this one, it felt very contrived and incongruous.
So only 2 stars from me for this one; a great premise but poorly executed.
