SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE - WATCH THE TRAILER BELOW!


Warning: not for claustrophobics.

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.

Like Thomas, the Gladers don’t know why or how they came to be there – or what’s happened to the world outside. All they know is that every morning when the walls slide back, they will risk everything - even the half-machine-half-animal Grievers that patrol the corridors - to try and find out.

Lord of the Flies meetsThe Hunger Games.

THE MAZE RUNNER SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE
'An absorbing and tense novel ... teens will devour'

He began his new life standing up, surrounded by cold darkness and stale, dusty air. Metal ground against metal; a lurching shudder shook the floor

"This first book in the trilogy was heavily inspired by two books I loved as a kid: Ender's Game and Lord of the Flies. It was years in the making, but once I started writing it came together pretty quickly."
