The Maze runnerDid you enjoy The Maze Runner by James Dashner?

There is going to be a NEW prequel – it’s quite a way off yet, 2016. Called  The Fever Code, it will tell the stories of characters Thomas, Teresa, Newt, Minho and Alby before they enter the Box (the elevator that takes them down into the maze).  

“From the very beginning, I’ve always wanted to write a prequel about Thomas, Teresa, Newt, Minho, Alby and all the Gladers that leads up to the very moment Thomas enters the Box,” Dashner said. “There are so many things hinted at that will be fun to reveal in depth. For years, fans have made it abundantly and enthusiastically clear that they want the same thing, so now seems like the perfect time to give readers the story of how the Maze began.”

The “Maze Runner” series has sold more than 6.5 million copies worldwide and reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list as well as being a success as a film The second film in the franchise, “Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials,” based on the second book  is set to be released on September 18, 2015.
