The Maze Runner series by James Dashner was one of the most popular young adult novels of the last decade. The dystopian fantasy series followed the adventures of a group of kids called Gladers, led by the fearless Thomas. BL named The Maze Runner one of the 100 Best Books for Boys, too.
Since then, the bestselling series has been adapted into an equally successful film series. The second movie in the series, The Scorch Trials, hits theaters Sept. 18.
In the next chapter of the epic Maze Runner saga, Thomas and his fellow Gladers face their greatest challenge yet: searching for clues about the mysterious and powerful organization known as WCKD. Their journey takes them to the Scorch, a desolate landscape filled with unimaginable obstacles. Teaming up with resistance fighters, the Gladers take on WCKD’s vastly superior forces and uncover its shocking plans for them all.
