A review for the first in the series, The Maze Runner A cracking sci-fi post-apocalyptic adventure thriller for 11+ year olds that has already taken the US by storm and is set to achieve similar success globally. When Thomas wakes up, walks out of the lift he’s in he finds himself in a walled encampment – the Glade - surrounded by a maze alongside lots of boys. He wonders how he got there but no one knows. All they all know is that every 30 days a new boy arrives and every morning the big wall comes down between the Glade and the world inhabited by the terrifying Grievers, part-animal, part machine, and the boys will risk everything, to find out why they’re there and every evening the wall goes up again. This really is adrenalin pumping reading that fans of Michael Grant’s Gone series, The Hunger Games and Lord of the Flies will love.

A Piece of Passion from Barry Cunningham, Publisher I love books like this. You are plunged into the action, just as confused and frightened as the characters you meet. There are no rules – or none that make sense – but gradually you learn to survive, and to hope. Or is that another trick? This is brilliant, nail-gnashing stuff. Thanks, James, I didn’t want to sleep for a week anyway!

This set includes the three books in the pulse-pounding Maze Runner series..

The Maze Runner

The Scorch Trials

The three books in the pulse-pounding Maze Runner series! When the doors of the lift crank open, the only thing Thomas remembers is his first name. But he's not alone. He's surrounded by boys who welcome him to the Glade - a walled encampment at the centre of a bizarre and terrible stone maze. But the maze is just the beginning ...
