    They have never met, they have been assigned strange pseudonyms, they inhabit identical rooms that open out onto very different landscapes, and they have entered a dialogue they cannot escape - a discourse defined and destroyed by the Helmet of Horror. Its wearer is the dominant force they call Asterisk, a force for good and ill in which the Minotaur is forever present and Theseus is the great unknown.

    Overall

    I thought the premise for this looked interesting enough to give it a go but I certainly wouldn't recommend it. I think it is a kind of extended essay on and around the idea of the labyrinth but would be better served in non-fiction. There are a few interesting ideas but because there is no real characterisation or even plot I found it tiresome. It gets one star because I thought the narration and production was really well done. I would give this a miss.
