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?

SPOILERS!!!!!! 6/5 - Some of my friends have found this to be a disappointment and some have enjoyed it as much as they did the first book. I really hope I'm in the latter group. To be continued...7/5 - Okay, I'm on page 41 and the boys have just found the brick walls and the dead bodies and everyth...
Plot: I liked this book much more than I thought I would. What drew me to reading The Maze Runner was the maze, so I thought that I wouldn't enjoy this book as much as the first one. However, I'm glad that I continued reading this series. The plot was ok, but the made up curses were a bit too much. ...
The Scorch Trials, it really meant to be scorched right? When I read the betrayal portion, I was like "OMG, What the heck is happening there?". I can feel how Thomas felt at that moment. And according to me WICKED IS NOT GOOD. I'm not a sci-fi fan so I didn't read any sci-fi books, but for some reas...
