When Thomas awakens in the Glade, he has no memory. He’s been inserted into the inescapable Maze just like the other boys. Not that they haven’t tried—Maze Runners scout the Maze every day looking for a way out. When Thomas learns what’s outside their haven of the Glade, he realizes why they’ve been here so long. The Grievers, enormous bio-tech creatures that annihilate any human they come in to contact with, rule the Maze by night and keep all of the boys neatly trapped. No one has survived an encounter with them. That is, no one before Thomas. And when Theresa arrives, she is not only the first girl ever to hit the Glade, but also the last delivery. No more supplies, no more kids, and no more time to hide from the Grievers. Can Thomas help the Gladers outwit the Grievers and discover an exit from the Maze? What kind of sick experiment is the Maze, anyway?

With a wicked twist ending, The Maze Runner will be sure to keep readers on the edge of their seats until they reach the thrilling conclusion.

Old and new fans will love the new movie tie-in version of The Maze Runner, complete with full-color pictures from the upcoming film. With a slick new cover and a bonus chapter from Dashner’s new book, The Eye of Minds, this new release will delight fans.
