Book one in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don’t miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!

When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his name. He’s surrounded by strangers—boys whose memories are also gone.
Outside the towering stone walls that surround them is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.
Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying: Remember. Survive. Run.

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 was so much better than i expected, James Dashner really knows how to write books. I felt like i was in the book, really facing the horrors, the tension, and the sadness. 10/10

            Such an amazing book! I've read so many books and Enjoy these so much. There probably one of my favorite books! I would suggest them. They are shorter but they do have more than one book in the series. If you are younger and get scared easily I would not tell you to read these books. There not scary to me just a great book ;)

                    This series is my all-time FAVORITE book series! book 1-(maze runner): best book ever! Full of wonder, excitement, awe, hope, violence, drama, and grievers! This unforgettable book is about an ever-changing maze, a group of teenage boys (and one girl!), who have been robbed of their memories of the world outside of the maze. "Welcome to the Glade."
