The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, Book 2) review

91lU8qq73wL The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, Book 2)

Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end.

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.

There are no rules. There is no help. You either make it or you die.

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.

Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.

There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.

Author: James Dashner

This was a particularly bloody story, a few decapitations and mutilations with some stuff that I’m pretty sure isn’t going to make it into the PG-13 movie that’s coming out soon. It has the feel of the second act of a 5 act story, which is bit of a blessing, as it shows the author has an idea of what he’s wanting to do on the larger canvas, with more of the larger story being told through recovered memories and flashbacks from other characters. It was a quick read too, I think it only took me 3 or 4 hours to burn through all 400 pages. Now to the third book where hopefully we learn more about WICKD and how awesome they are and what plans they have to torture our heroes with.
