    You've seen the hit film starring Dylan O'Brien, Will Poulter and Kaya Scodelario; now's the time to read up on James Dashner's Maze Runner series - you won't believe what happens next!

    The film adaptation was one of 2014's biggest films but we believe the novels are even better! This three-book collection is great for anyone who was left on the edge of their seat by the film's cliffhanger ending and needs to know what happens next...

    Starting with The Maze Runner and all Thomas can remember is his name. When the lift cranks open, he finds he's not alone and has landed up at the Glade - an encampment at the centre of a terrible maze. Surrounding him is an army of boys known as the Gladers... But when a girl arrives with a message, everyone will have to work together to escape the maze - or risk dying!

    The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure continue the story with even more shocks, thrills and spills... A combination of The Hunger Games, Lord of the Flies and Patrick Ness' Chaos Walking trilogy, these are young adult novels of the highest calibre.
