With the sun flares and this deadly uncured disease call the Flare the world and the humans are being destroyed. People with this disease become aggressive and violent. Most of human who survive the sun flares now have the Flare disease. Thomas and the remaining Gladers are put in room that is sealed shut. Later they realize that Teresa is gone and a guy states, that they must enter the Scorch or they all died. The guy also announces, all the Gladers have the Flare and if they get to the safe haven, the will get the cure. Thomas and the Gladers must fight through the Scorch, find Teresa, survive the infected, then make it to the safe haven.
Scorch Trials was very well written. It starts right off from the end of the Maze Runner. The author really makes you feel like your Thomas even though it is in third person. The book is action packed and has drama and betrayal. You learn of some of Thomas’s memories throughout the book. Some secrets will be revealed. Don’t forget to read the Death Cure and the Kill Order. You should read them in order because the story's start right at the end of the previous book.
