Synopsis:
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.

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.

There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.
Reaction:
The horrible treatment of these kids continues and this time it's a little less inventive, which hurts the overall experience a bit. But it's still a good read and a compelling series.
Trivia:
Was turned into a motion picture in 2015 starring Dylan O'Brien.
