Maze by Jason Brannon
Brannon stumbled through his own maze for much of his adult life and only
recently found his way out. During his stint inside The Maze, he was the author
of The Cage, Lake October, and
numerous other dark fantasy titles. His fiction has been translated into
German, nominated for awards, and even won a few. Since locating the exit to
the labyrinth and escaping, he has made a home for himself in Amory,
Mississippi where he enjoys spending time with his son and writing fiction that
weaves faith and fantasy together.
From the book’s back cover:
A near death experience
transports Jamie Burroughs into The Maze, a realm every bit as peculiar as
Lewis Caroll’s Wonderland, yet engineered with the moral intent of C.S. Lewis’
Narnia. Built by angels and demons and filled with traps and riddles, The Maze
gives whoever enters a face-to-face encounter with their sins.
For Jamie, The Maze becomes a
terrifying journey through a world of darkness where his soul and the lives of
those he loves hang in the balance. With his family in danger and his soul in
peril, Jamie is forced to reevaluate the kind of man he truly is as he
struggles to escape The Maze before it’s too late.
Jason Brannon gives The Maze vivid descriptions as Jamie
finds himself inside a frightful maze with no exit in sight. I’m claustrophobic
and I shared Jamie’s heightened anxiety as he searches for a way out of the
maze. Inside the maze Jamie finds help from angels and fear from demons. He is
reminded of and must face his past sins. What must he do to escape the maze?
Answer that and he will have solved the riddle of the maze. As mentioned in Jason
Brannon’s biography above, Jason weaves faith and fantasy together in this
book. There is no doubt of God’s love for the one who sins. If you read
books like The Maze, you’ll love this
book. If you don’t read books like The
Maze, Jason Brannon’s attention to details within the maze and his ultimate
moral theme will please you. I read it and didn’t have nightmares so maybe you
