EW shares an exclusive clip of James Dashner, author of The Maze Runner talking about his inspiration for the series and more. They also shared an excerpt from The Fever Code which is a prequel novel. This is set to hold all of the answers about the trilogy..
Once there was a worlds end.
The forests burned, the lakes and rivers dried up, and the oceans swelled.
Then came a plague, and fever spread across the globe. Families died, violence reigned, and man killed man.
Next came WICKED, who were looking for an answer. And then they found the perfect boy.
The boys name was Thomas, and Thomas built a maze.
Now there are secrets.
There are lies.
And there are loyalties history could never have foreseen.
This is the story of that boy, Thomas, and how he built a maze that only he could tear down.
All will be revealed.
The book won’t hit shelves until September 27, 2016, but you can now read an excerpt of it in Entertainment Weekly.
