Dashner has not failed to disappoint on this fine occasion, and I shall be waiting for the movie release eagerly.


The second book in the blockbuster phenomenon The Maze Runner series now features chapters from The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated conclusion to the MAZE RUNNER SERIES—the novel that finally reveals 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 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.
   Friendships will be tested. Loyalties will be broken. All bets are off.
   There are others now. Their survival depends on the Gladers’ destruction—and they’re determined to survive.
    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!

This book is more action and more intense than the first book. I highly enjoyed this one, maybe even more than the first.
