Interesting Stories but Slightly Hard to Follow
This was a little outside what I normally like to read in science fiction, but it sounded interesting from the start. The author combines three stories with the themes of alternate universes, other dimensions, and time travel.
All three stories were definitely interesting and kept my attention. The slight downside here was that I found them a little hard to follow. The first one was definitely my favorite and I would be interested in reading an entire full length book with the same theme.
If you're looking for a quick listen for a road trip or plane ride this is a good choice.
This book was provided at no cost by the author or publisher in exchange for an honest review.

A dystopian tale in three parts
The narration for The Maze was done by Ashley Klanac who does a really nice job narrating these three tales. Her voice and inflection worked really well with the style that Tahmaseb was going for in these books. The quality was perfect and I had no issues.
My least favorite story of the three was The Maze, don’t get me wrong — I still enjoyed the story the other two just outshined it in my opinion. I think if it had some more time to develop and there was some more character development, it could have shined just as bright as the other two stories.
All three stories could have used a little more (that’s the problem with most short stories), but I think that they were better than others I’ve read in the past. Usually, in a short story, the author has to pick between the story and the backstory and usually most/all of the backstory gets cut.
I think that overall, these were a great collection of dystopian/sci-fi stories from an author who has nowhere else to go but up! Check these out if you want fast stories from a new author.
