You’d think everything would be explained once the Gladers made it out of the maze. No more running, no more fighting. They deserve an explanation and their memories back. But when they wake up, they face another, harder test: cross the Scorch and get to the safe haven. Thomas knows another group is meant to kill him, but when people lie to you continuously, and your memories start to creep back telling you something completely different, how can you know what is real, who to trust, and what was set up by WICKED? Will they ever be free, or will these trials go on forever?
I could not put The Scorch Trials down. I sat up late into the night, holding my breath, trying to work out where the plot was going. It manages to stay as scary, exciting, and unpredictable as The Maze Runner, introducing some great new characters, and leaving you wanting the next book RIGHT NOW. -- Angela M.
