    The Narrow Maze is a nightmarish labyrinth where the souls of dead Heroes are given a chance to return to the living. Axe claims that he's escaped it twice, but I don't believe him... mainly for two reasons. 1: You can't kill Axe. 2. Even if he DID die, he would punch death in the face before he could be taken to the narrow maze.

    I've written a lot of books about Axe, the most popular of which is easily 'The Roshan Expedition'. Personally I think, 'Red Mist, Red Passion' is better, but people heard 'erotic thriller' and never gave it a chance.

    Chronicling Axe's adventure's has taken me to lots of interesting places. It first it was scary but eventually you get used to a certain level of baseline terror.
