The Scorch Trials (Maze Runner 2) - James Dashner
Young Adult. The teens escape the maze and are out in the world. Is this really the what the world has come to or are they still being manipulated by the mysterious cabal operating behind the scenes. High tech chicanery and a brutish zombie-like population keep the gang off balance. Better than the movie.

A great book. Read the book while while just keeping ahead of the TV adaptation as it aired in Canada. Both were excellent though the TV series seemed darker.

Calamity (Reckoners 3) - Brandon Sanderson
Looks like a clean end to the series. Open ended, what with some Epics still evil because they're inherently messed up people. Good YA adventure. I was caught a bit flat-footed by the ending, but still quite enjoyed it. (more)
