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. – Goodreads.com
One goal met. I’d hoped to finish this book before the movie comes out and I barely made it.
Unlike the The Maze Runner, where I was completely engrossed in the story and unable to put it down, The Scorch Trials didn’t grab me as quickly. Not that I didn’t enjoy it – the action starts almost right away, but not much seems to happen for quite a while. Right around the 75% mark or so, things really picked up and by the end of the book, I felt as if I’d been lied to, jerked around, and manipulated almost as much as Thomas.
Still a lot of unanswered questions, with just a few more pieces of the puzzle revealed and I most definitely plan on continuing with this series.
