Publisher's Summary

Book two in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don't miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!
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.
Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.
The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials are now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O'Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster. The third movie, Maze Runner: The Death Cure, will hit screens in 2018.
Also look for James Dashner's edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

Fast pace, new twists and more mysteries

Who will survive the Scorch Trials? This book literally begins right where The Maze Runner left off. The Gladers believe they have escaped WICKED and are beginning a new life but those who read the epilogue from The Maze Runners know that WICKED actually has the Gladers right where they want them.

If you enjoyed The Maze Runner then you will love The Scorch Trials.

The narrator Mark Deakins does a great job; if you enjoyed him in The Maze Runner then you will enjoy him in The Scorch Trials. He brings life and personality to each individual character.

This book does contain more graphic content than The Maze Runner, if you did not like descriptions of the final battle between the Gladers and the Grievers then you will probably not enjoy portions of this book.

I enjoyed this book and cannot what for the third installment.

An excited start that quickly fell into drudgery.

In which the strong, smart, and initiative main protagonist we enjoyed in the first book reverts into a moody hormonal preteen.
Seemingly refusing to use his cream-of-the-crop brain for anything other than being abysmally confused, making unbearably tactless social decisions, and falling unconscious CONSTANTLY.
The action was good when there was action, but most of it happening at or near Thomas while he has some sort of emotional breakdown rather than taking any affirmative action.
I'll leave it at that and just say I had a lot of problems with this sequel. It will be a while before I read the finale after reading ahead on its own reviews.

The narration was absolutely fantastic, great consistency with believable voices.
