The pulse-pounding sequel to The Maze Runner
Thomas was sure that escape from the maze meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to.
Now, the earth is a wasteland. Government and order have disintegrated and Cranks — people driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare — roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim... and meal.
Thomas can only wonder — does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?
The Scorch Trials
picks up where The Maze Runner
left off. The Gladers have escaped the Maze, but now they face an even more treacherous challenge on the open roads of a devastated planet.
And WICKED has made sure to adjust the variables and stack the odds against them.
Can Thomas survive in such a violent world?
