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!

Quotes & Awards

  • “The fast-paced narrative and survival-of-the-fittest scenario is reminiscent of Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games…Each character’s personality is distinct. The unresolved ending will leave readers impatiently waiting for the conclusion to the trilogy.”

    " It wasn't as good as the first book, but when it ended I wanted to read the next book right away, so that's good. Overall 3.5 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lisa Grebowsky | 2/12/2014

    " Oh my gosh I really need the third book. Easily one of my favorite series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jeanette Manrique-Reyes | 2/11/2014

    " It was a good book, but it really could have been shortened to get to the point. There was a lot of pointless "passing out" by Thomas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy Lacey | 2/8/2014

    " This book was pretty fun as well. It was super crazy and from one moment to the next I had no idea what was going to happen. I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ellen | 1/26/2014

    " Loved it, finished it last night and have already started book 3! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emeline | 1/19/2014

    " Dashner definitely creates a vividly imaginative world but I found myself questioning the believability of some of the situations the characters found themselves in time and time again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pam | 1/1/2014

    " So many questions. Once again, I had a hard time getting into this book, but there were so many questions and so few answers, that I had to keep reading. Hopefully all these questions will be answered in the third book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 L | 12/31/2013

    " I loved the Maze Runner but was very disappointed my this sequel. With the Maze Runner there was a plot and a puzzle of trying figure things out with the Maze. With this book, it just dragged on and on. I don't think I will be reading the third book in the series. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki | 12/31/2013

    " I wanted to love it but, meh. I'll still read the 3rd book because I hate not finishing series but these are just a bit too weird for me, I think (this coming from someone who loves fantasy/sci fi books). "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aspen | 11/4/2013

    " Pretty good, though not as good as the first. I like how true the characters seem, even if the story itself is far fetched. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Larry Chen | 10/27/2013

    " Very good..... Though, the Cranks scare me a bit :P "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 thomas | 10/25/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sully | 5/9/2013

    " it was pretty good, but it was so suspencefull it got annoying. still, it was better than the other 2. over all: good book. recomended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Csharris10 | 1/31/2013

    " Just like the first book I was still confused as all could get out. Until the very end. But it definitely kept me on the edge of my seat through the whole thing . I can't wait to pick up the 3rd book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susan | 11/22/2011

    " The more I read of this series the more I like it. I'm still intensely frustrated by not actually knowing what's happening but I am also very attached to these characters, so it feels like I am going through the whole ordeal with them. Can't wait to see what WICKED puts us through next.. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nikki B | 11/3/2011

    " Way better than the first, but not something that I'd read again. Way more action and adventure, but still ridiculous. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalie 'bainbridge' lappe | 8/19/2011

    " This book was alright. I wasn't as interested in this as I was the first. I found myself scimming quite a bit in the middle. The mystery is still there and I still want to know how it ends, but I'm less excited about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 sylas | 6/14/2011

    " The truth is that the writing doesn't thrill me. However, I'm still compelled enough by the story to bite my nails non-stop and to be chomping at the bit for the final novel in the trilogy! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Trevor | 5/24/2011

    " A wonderful follow up from the maze. same idea but it got better and better. I now feel like thomas is doing those stupid things like in a horror movie. staying in a car in the middle of a dark alley. Now come on that just beckons creepy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keri-lynn | 5/23/2011

    " Every bit as intense as the Maze Runner-just wish I'd found this series after all three were in print. I'm anxious for the third one. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Suzette | 5/23/2011

    " I liked this sequel a little better than the first one. It seemed to move faster. I really hope there is a great payoff for all of the confusion in the last book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 5/20/2011

    " Incredible. Intense. Edge of my seat can't sleep. Yes. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Loni | 5/18/2011

    " Like The Maze Runner, I wish I could give this 3.5 stars. I definitely didn't see what was coming. It would be a great discussion book about the effects of lying and betrayal. It's an interesting world Dashner has created and the next, and last, book should be a good read! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Susan | 5/16/2011

    " A bit boring and very confusing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mindy | 5/15/2011

    " This book is very random. I'm not sure the author can tie all of this together in the next book. I don't have high hopes that he'll be entirely successful at that, but I'll keep reading because I hate stopping in the middle. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karmela | 5/14/2011

    " Even more amazing. Great sequel. Love the zombies. So thrilling! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lydia | 5/13/2011

    " Hurry up! Hurry up! I need the final book in this series. It just doesn't feel fair that it's not coming out until October. I loved it! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 5/12/2011

    " All I can say at this point in the series is that the third book better do some explaining and it better be good. I reserve further commentary on the series until I know what the heck is going on. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Leslie | 5/12/2011

    " Better than the Maze Runner. There is still something about these books that makes me want to read more but yet doesn't want to give them 4 stars. The WICKED people tell the Gladers that everything will make sense after they explain, but they never explain. "
