You can now read the prologue and first five chapters of the Maze Runner prequel on USA Today!!!
The prologue takes place hours to minutes before the original trilogy, but the actual story takes place 13 years before that, one year after the solar flares. In the first five chapters we meet seven new characters: Mark, Alec, Trina, Lana, Darnell, the Toad and Misty, all people trying to survive after the solar flares scorched most of the earth. These chapters take place near Asheville, North Carolina one year after these seven escape New York City and lose almost everybody they love.
I can tell already that this is going to be a great story and I can’t wait for August 14th. 82 days! Feel free to comment what you think about these first few chapters as well as how you would feel if you were in the same situation as Teresa in the prologue.
