Scorch Trials is the second book in the Maze runner series and the story just can't get any better! The story begins where the Gladers have escaped the maze and are send to WCKD's head quarters. At first, they thought finding a way out of the maze means freedom, but a far more challenging adventure is ahead of them: the Scorch and the insane world full of cranks. My favorite character in this book is definitely Brenda because she is fearless, open about her feelings, strong, and confident. Even though she knew about Thomas's feelings for Teresa, she is still determined to get Thomas to Safe Haven. I think it's really confusing as to who WCKD really is, but also an interesting question to think about. If you think about it broadly from Thomas's perspective, it'd seem like they're putting them to danger, murdering tons of innocent people, and have took away the people's memories and freedom. On the other hand, they're actually trying to rescue the human race. Overall, I think this book is amazing and exciting and people should definitely read it if they liked the first book. It's full of even more action, romance, mysteries, heart-breaking betrayals, and more for you to read about!
