The Scorch Trials by James Dashner
Sci-Fi, Dystopian, Post-Apocalypse, Survival, Disease, Crazy Scientists
The Gladers’ trials are far from over as the W.I.C.K.E.D. scientists presiding over the tests continue to mercilessly push the limits of what the dwindling group can handle both physically and mentally. The grim reality of the state of the world after the sun flares is revealed and the race for a cure for the Flare is vital. More is explained about W.I.C.K.E.D. and their plans, but still not enough to fully appreciate their motives and plans beyond the lies and manipulation. The action is constant and it’s never obvious who will survive and what horrible experiment will begin next.
