The Scorch Trials

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?

In the style of the first book The Scorch Trials provides a harsh task for Thomas and his friends to overcome. They now have to deal with the reality of the world they had been sheltered from crossing the most damaged part of the earth and coming into contact with those who have been infected. For me this book felt more brutal than the last as the boys were now all in danger and had no resources to help them through. For Thomas more questions and confusion were to come particularly about his relationship with Theresa. His dreams about her reveal more about their past but her action lead you to question what you may be thinking. There was one point I was annoyed at Thomas for not listening to her but within the next few chapters suspicion was starting to creep in. The unknown is something I am really enjoying about the books. I feel we still don’t really know if we can trust WICKED or not. Thomas is convinced they are bad, but he was part of them and Theresa still has her tattoo saying they are good so throughout we are fed conflicted idea’s about how good their intentions are. WICKEDs actions in this book were interesting because it showed not only their power over what they were controlling but also their passion or doing it and doing it in the right way. I am excited to find out how this series is going to come to an end and finally finding out the whole truth.
