The Maze Runner Files is a 50+ page collection of classified records and concealed information from the world of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series. Lost emails between WICKED employees, memos meant to be destroyed after reading, and a selection of the Gladers suppressed memories make up this e-original short. These documents offer a unique glimpse of the world of The Maze Runner and are a must for any fan of The Maze Runner.
Maze Runner Files is the story of how the flare came to be and is told in bleeped out recording transcripts and inter-office WICKED memos. It was so creepy. I haven’t been creeped out that much since the bridge of Khazad-dûm in Lord of the Rings (I’m talking about book not the movie.) It talks a lot about setting up the experiment and really makes you ponder ethics and science. There is also a memory in here of Thomas remembering how the flare affected his parents and it’s really sad. This is a must read if you liked the Maze Runner series but read it last – it’s totally full of spoilers.
