Sample text:

King Heinrich Witz stood atop a skyscraper in St. Louis, Missouri, a thick expanse of gray mist spoiling the view. The Gateway Arch and some of the taller buildings poked out above the haze, but that was about it. “What do you think it is, Aaron?” he asked.

“Well, it does remind me of the fog we ran into in the second part of the maze,” Aaron said and then paused for a moment. “And it did show up right after the Sovereigns destroyed the Corridor.”

Rich nodded. It was a good answer, but it didn't seem like the whole story. That fog had knocked them all unconscious and started messing with their minds to try to get make them give up the will to live. With this fog however, people didn't lose consciousness. They just walked around in a trance-like state, going through routines like eating and sleeping, even going to the bathroom as though they were permanently on autopilot.

“Are you sure you don't want me to fly you under the Arch?” Aaron asked. “I’d feel a lot better about that.”

“Sorry, Aaron,” Rich said. “I read all the instructions my grandparents left me. They said I need to pack light when going through the gate like this. I know that means I shouldn’t take an airplane, but it probably also means I shouldn’t take any extra passengers. I need you to stay behind and keep Angela safe. Besides, little Libby would miss you too much if you left.”
