Blurb: 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.
The sequel of The Maze Runner keeps up with the level of mystery and thrill, but in a different way.
It picks up right from where The Maze Runner ended, which is great.
I Found it much easier to get into because I was already invested in the story and I was trying to figure out Wicked and all the crazy things that were happening.
Not only that the element of love is added in the second book, but also it is a Love triangle.
This story is about extreme manipulation with emotions and believes, and James Dashner was able to involve me with what Thomas went through.
It might not be highly action packed like The Maze Runner, oh man, but the feels it gives you is phenomenal !
Every couple chapters left me humming the intro of Macklemores' Thrift Shop, which goes something like What What What , What What What?
The Only thing that kind of annoyed me was how much Thomas passed out and slept in this book, probably about 20 times !
I really enjoyed the Scorch Trails and I gave it 5/5 stars and an A according to my own rating scale.
