The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner Series) by James Dashner
After solving and escaping The Maze, Thomas and the rest of the survivors thought they’d be free; they thought they would be better off outside of the maze; they thought they might see their families again. But W.I.C.K.E.D. have something very different in mind… The survivors are thrown into a desert wasteland called the Scorch. A once wholesome and vibrant city is now nothing more than rubble, disease and danger. Not only do they have to navigate across such a treacherous and barren city; they also have to survive the Cranks, people turned crazy by a viral infection called the Flare.
The survivors face conflicts, fights, immense heat, lack of supplies, Cranks and so many more hazardous conflicts in their battle to survive and discover the truth.
TEEN RATING: Filled with action and doused with terror, The Scorch Trials is an important part of the Maze Runner Series. Although not as good as its predecessor or successor, it is still a great book that must be read by fans of the first Maze Runner. 12+ 3.9/5
