Publisher's Summary

Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end. No more puzzles. No more variables. And no more running. Thomas was sure that escape meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one really knew what sort of life they were going back to.

In the Maze, life was easy. They had food, and shelter, and safety... until Teresa triggered the end. In the world outside the Maze, however, the end was triggered long ago.

Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland. Government has disintegrated - and with it, order - and now Cranks, people covered in festering wounds and driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare, roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim... and meal.

The Gladers are far from finished with running. Instead of freedom, they find themselves faced with another trial. They must cross the Scorch, the most burned-out section of the world, and arrive at a safe haven in two weeks. And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.

Thomas can only wonder - does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?

What the Critics Say

"The Gladers meet new friends and enemies on their quest, and Deakins shows his skill by providing each of the speakers with a distinctive accent. Listeners will be eagerly awaiting the conclusion to this trilogy." (AudioFile)

    "WHAT. JUST. HAPPENED!!!"

    Once again I will say, I'm BLOWN AWAY by the fact that there is not even an OUNCE of similarity between the Scorch Trial movie (which is all I had to go by up til now) and what I just finished listening to from the actual book!!!! Did James Dashner REALLY sign off on the final script for the movie?!! Did he just sell the rights off and had no say at all about what went into the "Hollywood" version of his amazing book?! I'm baffled at how the movie is not even CLOSE to having the same storyline as the book!! Thank God I took time to do the "audible" version of the book, because it moved me in ways that the movie couldn't dream of doing. Wow......

    "i still prefer the movie"

    two completely different narratives. it is interesting to listen to this one, but the film adaptation brings more action and consistency to the story it is worth reading/listening

    "Maze Runner - #2 - The Scorch Trials"

    Story: I like the first book and I was willing to listen to the next book before the movie came out. I found it on par with the first book, no more or less than. The same about the second movie though they condensed and changed some of the characters to meet reel run time limitation. In addition, I felt that some of book events and characters were not quite believable. But then, I believe the author wanted to leave doubt about everyone in the book for suspense.

    Reader: Good.

    Production: Good.

    "very enjoyable"

    The plot was a little predictable and it was frustrating that Thomas seemed so gullible but otherwise I liked the book a lot!
