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.
My Rating: ★★★☆☆
It took me two and a half weeks to finish this book. Not because it was terrible, but because it was essentially the exact same set up as the first book.
They are some place new. Something happens. They are told that this is a test and they have to cross The Scorch in two weeks. People die. They cross. They didn’t know what was really going on the whole time. There is betrayal. More people die. And at the end after being told it was finally over, it wasn’t.
That’s it. That’s the whole book right there. No need to actually read it. Just skip to the third one, which I haven’t gotten to yet.
Honestly, I don’t even feel like I need to write more for this book.
