Review: The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner #2) by James Dashner

*May contain spoilers for those who have not read The Maze Runner.*

Wow. That is all I can say about this sequel to the wonderful Maze Runner. Our favorite characters are thrown straight back into fighting for their lives. We knew from the end of The Maze Runner that they wouldn't be given more than a moment of safety. They are going outside; where they have not been in many years. This is not a planned maze. The maze is a shelter in comparison. The world has been taken over by a sun that will burn you within a moment spent in its rays and thunderstorms that will tear your body to pieces. People are losing their minds and becoming careless zombies. Will the Gladers lose theirs? There is a lot more I want to say, particularly about Theresa and other new characters, but I don't want to spoil anything for anyone who has yet to read this. James Dashner is a wonderful writer. He creates a world with his words that sucks you in, holds you there and forces you to ask questions. I read recently on James Dashner's blog that he was a LOST fan and why am I not surprised? If you hate being given mysteries without many answers (yet) then I advise you to look for a new book. James is keeping us on the edge of our seats until the third and final book in the trilogy is released later this year. I have to wonder, with so many questions left to answer, will he come through in the end?
