The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
Manipulation, intrigue and deception. Will the trials ever end?
The Glader’s have escaped the maze and are supposed to be safe. While they are asleep, though, everything changes. Sun flares and a disease known as the Flare have all but destroyed the real world, and this is where their new trial begins. They have two weeks to cross the most devastated section of earth’s surface, battling the environment and the insane and murderous victims of the Flare, to a place that is supposed to be safe. WICKED has ensured that the journey will not be easy, if it is possible at all.
The epilogue in The Maze Runner let us know that the Glader’s were far from being safe, and the The Scorch Trials starts off by throwing the characters into immediate danger. While some questions are answered, many more are raised as is appropriate for the middle book in a trilogy. If you enjoyed The Maze Runner, this book is a must read, and the end ensures you will not hesitate to start on the third book.
