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)

    "Book 2 of the Maze Runner series"

    An interesting follow up to the Maze Runner. The Scorch Trials is about the second stage of the trials that the characters are put through. What is WICKED's end game and what are they doing to these people?
    The Gladers learn there is another group of maize subjects and now try and learn whether they are in competition with the other group or are supposed to join them to accomplish their goals of completing the Scorch Trials.

    "wow, just amazing"

    this series now has me hooked! it is such a wieed mix because I couldn't wait to find out where the story is going, but I never wanted it to end! although I do wish it had harder language and a slight bit more violence /vengeance.

    "I just finished the series..."

    overall I enjoyed the Maze Runner series. this book however was my least favorite. it felt as if Dashner was just plodding through this one to get to Death Cure. I'm glad I read it in the end... it introduced a few new characters like Rat Man and a few others that are involved in Death Cure.
    The relationship between Tom and the Gladers kinda falls away in this book which is disappointing.
    If you enjoyed the first book, the Maze Runner, stick it out through Scorch Trials, in the end you'll be glad you did.

    "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.
