The Scorch Trials

The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner, #2)

The Scorch Trials is the second book of James Dashner's The Maze Runner series.

Solving the Maze was supposed to be the end.

Thomas was sure the 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's destruction- and they're determined to survive.

The Breakdown:
1. First off, the Scorch makes the Glade and the Maze look like a garden party. The sun is intense, the storms are killer, and then there are the Cranks.  Cranks are the victims of the Flare disease, and as the disease progresses, the crazier they get.  Dashner, also, explains what happened to to world to make it what is in the books.

2.  This book definitely kept me guessing right up to the very end. Who are the girls or Group B? What is the meaning of the mysterious tattoos and signs, and what is WICKED's plan for the groups?  Even the ending left me with lots of questions, and I can't wait to read the next book.

3. Poor Thomas in this book.  His life is so confusing, not only is he trying to figure out what is going on, but he has to do it all while trying to survive the Scorch Trial.  Then there is the fact that Teresa has been ripped away from him both physically and telepathically. Oh, and he is having dreams of his past.
