The Scorch Trials: Maze Runner, Book 2

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.

Burned by sun flares and baked by a new, brutal climate, the earth is a wasteland....

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)

    "Almost too much action"

    Narration is great. The story is interesting but I would have liked it if it ever slowed down. It was like a continuous stream of action from start to finish and just a chapter of slow down to catch my breath might have improved things. Good sequel, though, and I look forward to the next book in the series.

    "Don't start series."

    Each book is set up to sell the next book and doesn't answer any questions so far through the Second book

    "Couldn't even finish."
    Any additional comments?

    To be honest the book was great, I loved the story and all. It's been a while since a book actually filled me with such rage to where I can't even finish it. I was completely fine with the betrayal thing but funny one of the things that really grinded my gears was when Aris and Teresa kissed. It's nothing to do with stupid relationships. It hit me on a personal level, I know how it feels to have your heart ripped out like that. Even if it was an act it filled me with a lot of emotion and that's only one of the things that bothered me about this book. As I said I love the story, very dark and well written, but I just can't finish it especially since I know how it ends because of spoilers. Great book and would suggest it to anyone who is thinking about it.

    "Amazing! Thrilling!"

    I was on the edge of my seat. I actually verbally cheered at the end. Awesome narration too complete with pleasant voices. These characters are more dear to me than those in the movie! Download it now! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌπŸ‘πŸΌ

    Story
    "Wish I hadn't watched the movie first"

    Talk about WICKED messing with me. Maybe the movie being absolutely nothing like the book is some sort of test. Maybe it's all a lie as well. I'm so confused.

    Seriously though...don't know if I'm going to keep going with the books now or wait until after the movies. If I continue with the books, I'll really hate the movies. If I wait at least I can separate the two more easily.

    Talk about messing up an already great and original story. But that's Hollywood.
