Summary (cr: goodreads)

If you ain’t scared, you ain’t human.

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.

Nice to meet ya, shank. Welcome to the Glade.

Outside the towering stone walls that surround the Glade is a limitless, ever-changing maze. It’s the only way out—and no one’s ever made it through alive.

Everything is going to change.

Then a girl arrives. The first girl ever. And the message she delivers is terrifying.

Remember. Survive. Run. 

My Review: (also in goodreads)

Let me just say this: I, once again was fooled by the movie, This happened to me once and that is Rick Riordan's 'The Lightning Thief'. I, again watched the movie before I read the book and just to be fair the movie was interesting. It was the reason I decided to read the book. But as I devoured the pages, I realized the book is always better. Not just because of the movie's wrong sequences but because the book is more action-packed and downright interesting. I have my own speculations about the future of the book's characters as well as my judgement on WICKED's true intention and with that I'm going to read the second book of the series.

Till the next read...
