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.
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.
There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers' destruction—and they're determined to survive.
Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.
The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O'Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The third movie, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, will hit screens in 2018.
Also look for James Dashner's edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

Quite boring with little structure
Seems like a plathora of bad things thrown upon teenage boys... for no real reason. At least none that has a good explaination (and as I read in other reviews - will not be have much of one in the last book of the triology). The writing is flat, the main character becomes increasingly more unlikeable and is also kind of dense. The Maze Runner started so well - what a fantastic idea to wake up in a giant, dangerous maze without any idea or memories about it. But I guess that's how far the authors' fantasy reached. Sure, he invents more cruel things to happen to the boys, but there is no depth, no real point to the cruelty, and not much of a connection between the different plot parts. Side characters come and are used like meaningless props without much personality or history. The writing is simple and boring, the special vocab of the book kind of weird. Altogether, I found the book pretty bland. I have no desire to finish the triology.
