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)

    "Not as good as the first but still worth it"

    The action in the Scorch Trials kept me on the edge of my seat. I did enjoy listening. But this book was more of a taunt and tease than a sequel. I felt a little strung along only to get no answers in the end. In the Maze Runner and the Scorch Trials, Thomas and Theresa kept saying they were responsible for everything. In both books, people forgot things and saw things. There were a lot of impossibilities thrown at us that were never really explained. The kids were constantly running for their lives and the whole time met betrayal after betrayal. I know they were being tested for something. And obviously there will be a book three. But I kind of wish they would have thrown us a bone in book 2. At the end of this one, I found myself thinking, "Oh not again!" Also, I thought the two girls (Theresa and Brenda) were pretty creepy. I don't know if it was the story or the narrator (he was great, but did a creepy girl's voice), but I didn't like or trust either of them. If that was the way I was supposed to react, then kudos to Dashner.

    Overall, it WAS a good book and I look forward to book 3. I would have given it 5 stars if there had been more closure.

    "This one just washed over me."

    I wasn't able to tune in to this one. I guess it wasn't compatible with the work I was doing while listening.

    "Better than Maze Runner. A must read sequel."

    This book was better than the first in the series. I was more attached to the characters and had a genuine interest to figure out where the story was heading before the characters figured it out.

    If you like books where you only know as much as the characters and you try to piece things together, you'll love this one.

    "Performance is incredible, story can be slow"

    There were a few times I wanted to abandon this book in the beginning half, due to all the terrible things that happened. However, the performance was great and the distinct characters are played so well.

    Story
    "Was it O.K. Good or Great?"

    While the book kept grasping my attention all through out with all of the surprises and unexpected moments it seemed to lack a sense of no repetition. It seemed that every time it had something to do with Teresa being a traitor, then making it to the other side of the desert or dying, or them meeting some kind of monster. Whether it be a full gone crank or drunk and drugged citizens of the city. But as I said before it was a very interesting story and concept that kept me hooked all through out overall.

    The performance was well done to say the least

    As my full review had said the story was fantastic in many ways
