Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end.
Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze would mean freedom for him and the Gladers. But WICKED isn’t done yet. Phase Two has just begun. The Scorch.
There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.
The Gladers have two weeks to cross through the Scorch—the most burned-out section of the world. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.
There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.
May include spoilers from the first book.
The setting that The Scorch Trials take place in sounds like one wasteland. I wouldn’t be able to guess as to why the Safe Haven is there in the first place, but it works and I enjoyed Group A and the cast of characters on their way to the Safe Haven. What I liked was Group B being a group of girls who were just as bad-ass as the guys.
Wow! If I had an imagination like James Dashner, I’d be a writer as well! This book has mystery written all over it. (pun intended) I could not guess as to why WICKED planned anything! Usually I’m great at solving mysteries, but this one was quite hard to solve. There’s enough questions in here to litter a mailbox. The most simple question being: Why are WICKED making these children part of an experiment? What does this have to do with The Flare? Is there a real cure? I’m so confuzzled!
I’m so glad I have the third book so I can read it right away! James Dashner, you sure know how to captivate your audience!
