Reading Event, TONIGHT!

James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials

The Scorch Trials is James Dashner’s much-anticipated sequel to the young adult novel The Maze Runner, which was released in October 2009 to critical acclaim. It picks up a mere four hours after The Maze Runner ends. Thomas wakes up in a strange room with the rest of the Gladers feeling safe—but his relief doesn’t last long. 

Soon the Gladers realize that things aren’t as they appear and that they’re about to be tested again, this time with an even harder mission. They must make their way across the Scorch, a forbidding, barren land inhabited by Cranks—people driven mad by a disease called the Flare. Will they survive lightning storms, crazed Cranks, and even worse, betrayal? Dashner’s fans and new converts will be utterly riveted by this dystopian page-turner.

Who built the Maze? What is WICKED? And why do Thomas and Theresa have such strange memories? The Scorch Trials will shed light on some questions, but that same, searing light will unearth plenty of new ones.
Author bio: James Dashner is also the author of the 13th Reality series. James was born and raised in Georgia, but now lives in the Rocky Mountains with his family. After several years working in finance, he is now a full-time writer. Visit him at or follow him on Twitter (@jamesdashner).
