The Scorch Trials by James Dashner - review
The story picks up where the series' previous installment, The Maze Runner , left off. The Gladers have escaped the Maze and are resting in dorm-like chambers in the rescue facility. The Maze was a horrific set of trials set up as a human experiment. The boys and Teresa are unsure of what is going to happen next. When Thomas wakes up, he finds that zombie-like Cranks are attacking the facility. Cranks are humans who have gone insane, slowly being eaten up by a virus called the Flare.
Out of pages, Thomas left you with the cliff hanger of "and finally he slept" 29 times. Sounds fun, doesn't it? Then try to tell me you di. Then try to tell me you didn't notice it. Although this book was fast passed, a lot of it was filler and this book could really just have been shrunken into about pages at the max. I gave this book 2 stars only because James Dashner was able to create such real characters by giving them actual human qualities. This is mostly referring to Newt and Minho since they seemed the most real and fleshed out.

The Scorch Trials is a young adult post-apocalyptic dystopian science fiction novel written by American author James Dashner and the second book, fourth chronologically, in The Maze Runner series. The book starts with Thomas sleeping in the dormitory with the other teenagers — known as the Gladers , who had escaped from the Maze in the previous book — where they had been brought by a group of rescuers. Thomas is woken by a telepathic communication with Teresa, the only girl from the Glade, who is afraid. As Thomas wakes up, he finds that the facility is being attacked by Cranks — aggressive zombie-like people that have been affected by a plague known as the Flare. The Flare is a disease that attacks the brain, causing victims to lose their humanity and become crazy. Cranks were normal citizens before The Flare, after which they became crazed zombie-like killers. Thomas and the others escape into the facility's common area and discover that their rescuers are dead.
