“In book two of Dashner’s dystopian trilogy Thomas, Teresa and 13 others escape from the Maze only to get thrust into another horrific experiment – The Scorch Trials. Turns out WICKED was running a parallel Maze with girl subjects. The A and B Maze survivors must cross a brutal desert landscape, avoid the Flare crazed Cranks and find Safe Haven. Each Glader suddenly has a tattoo. One says “leader”; another “partner”. Thomas’ reads “to be killed by Group B”. This real version of earth, ravaged by sun flares, has inhabitants infected with a disease that destroys the mind. WICKED is searching for a cure. Why have they chosen these young people? How is their survival relevant to this cure? Dashner continues this gripping adventure in page turning style. ”MB @ the Library wrote this review Wednesday, August 28, 2013.

“I'm ready to get some buggin' answers and figure out what's going on with this shuck experiment! (Also, I think I'm going to use Glader slang forever.)”Hannah Richardson wrote this review Tuesday, August 20, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“The second book in the Maze Runner trilogy, I don't think it disappointed.
It had the same issue as the first book where at some points it was slow and I wasn't getting the full story but it makes sense to feel that way. This story is told in the perspective of Thomas who he himself doesn't know the full story.
All in all, I really liked this book and will continue on to read the third book.”
“Having finally escaped the maze and seeing some of their friends die in the process, Thomas, Teresa, Newt, and Minho are taken to safety just before they have to begin The Scorch Trials by James Dashner. Just when they think everything is going to be ok, the kids wake up to find Teresa missing and a boy named Aris in her room. Once again the rules changed in the middle of the game and the kids must adapt to WICKED’s wishes. This time two groups are sent in a survivor expedition across The Scorch to see who can survive the brutal conditions and cranks to reach a predetermined location at a set time. WICKED once again attempts to mess with Thomas’ mind while he tries to decide whom he should and should not trust. Set in a dystopian society, The Scorch Trials contains graphic violence, interesting language choices (the boys have created their own swear words) and disturbing situations which makes it best for grades 7-10. ”Karen G wrote this review Friday, August 9, 2013.

“ok, but getting less exciting. The love triangle is a bit tiresome, but what can you expect for a young adult story. Interested to see what happens in the end and what the purpose for all of these trials are.”Brianne wrote this review Wednesday, July 31, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“I liked it slightly more then the Maze, even though Chris warned me. Lightening and zombies and a bunch of other stuff, odd love triangles and some other stuff and mostly no questions answered, but this last book will have tons of answers and we will all go "ahh ha, I knew it!" ”Glenjamin wrote this review Tuesday, July 30, 2013.

“A good YA read. I found myself being annoyed at not knowing what is going on and whom to trust, which could be reflective of how the characters feel, I suppose. I don't know...it needs to give the reader a bit more.”Andrea G wrote this review Sunday, July 28, 2013. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
