The Maze of Mandoran

Maze Garden by Victor Garcia

Sinead awoke shivering in the darkness. She reached for her cloak but it was gone. Panic rising, she felt for the Sword of Elshain, but it was gone too. Then she remembered. She’d either been drugged or enchanted.

The room grew brighter. Stone walls encased her in a small chamber. No window. No door.

Not all is as it seems. Was this an illusion?

She looked up. A picture was forming on the ceiling as if painted by an invisible hand. It was a depiction of a maze. In the centre was a tiny figure enclosed within a solid wall. Sinead rose to her feet, not taking her eyes off the ceiling. The tiny figure moved too.

This must be the Maze of Mandoran; the first of the four final challenges.

She heard a dog barking. The Hound was calling to her! All she had to do now was escape.

  1. The figure moving as Sinead moves reminds me of “Locke and Key,” a Netflix series that has mirror reflections moving independently. It’s unnerving. It would be cool to see Moonsprite hovering over the chamber. I don’t trust that dog. (lol)
    Good story Chris.

  2. Ooh yes… intriguing and mysterious. I love the look of mazes but I’m not very good at them. I hope Sinead fares much better than I would. Another good installment, Chris.
