She spoke to him before the world fell apart.
Hey, are you still asleep?
Thomas shifted in his bed, felt a darkness around him like air turned solid, pressing in. At first he panicked; his eyes snapped open as he imagined himself back in the Box – that horrible cube of cold metal that had delivered him to the Glade and the Maze. But there was a faint light, and lumps of dim shadow gradually emerged throughout the huge room. Bunk beds. Dressers. The soft breaths and gurgly snores of boys deep in slumber.
Relief filled him. He was safe now, rescued and delivered to this dormitory. No more worries. No more Grievers. No more death.
A voice in his head. A girl’s. Not audible, not visible. But he heard it all the same, though he could never have explained to anyone how it worked.

About the book

The pulse-pounding sequel to The Maze Runner and now a major motion picture!

Thomas was sure that escape from the Maze meant he and the Gladers would get their lives back. But no one knew what sort of life they were going back to.

Now, the earth is a wasteland. Government and order have disintegrated and Cranks – people driven to murderous insanity by the infectious disease known as the Flare – roam the crumbling cities hunting for their next victim …... and meal.

Thomas can only wonder – does he hold the secret of freedom somewhere in his mind? Or will he forever be at the mercy of WICKED?

Author notes

'Before I even finished the first book, I knew that this story would make most sense as a tale told in three parts. And the second one was perhaps the most fun to write. I didn't have the pressure of ending the series, and I felt like I had the flexibility to throw anything and everything at my characters.'
