Chapter 273: Close Quarters

Stepping into the open, he waited for God to make clear which of the connecting passages he should follow. But no prompting came. “Adin?”
A faint shimmer caught Tamaes’s eye, and he slowly crossed to the only other source of light. Cast-off raiment lay crumpled against the wall, half-hidden by the bodies of dead rats.
