MEMORIZA, CORRE, SOBREVIVE. «Bienvenido al bosque. Verás que una vez a la semana, siempre el mismo día y a la misma hora, nos llegan víveres. Una vez al mes, siempre el mismo día y a la misma hora, aparece un nuevo chico como tú. Siempre un chico. Como ves, este lugar está cercado por muros de piedra... Has de saber que estos muros se abren por la mañana y se cierran por la noche, siempre a la hora exacta. Al otro lado se encuentra el laberinto. De noche, las puertas se cierran... y, si quieres sobrevivir, no debes estar allí para entonces». Todo sigue un orden? y, sin embargo, al día siguiente suena una alarma. Significa que ha llegado alguien más. Para asombro de todos, es una chica. Su llegada vendrá acompañada de un mensaje que cambiará las reglas del juego. ¿Y si un día abrieras los ojos y te vieses en un lugar desconocido sin saber nada más que tu nombre? Cuando Thomas despierta, se encuentra en una especie de ascensor. No recuerda qué edad tiene, quién es ni cómo es su rostro. Sólo su nombre. De pronto, el ascensor da un zarandeo y se detiene. Las puertas se abren y una multitud de rostros le recibe. «Bienvenido al Claro ?dice uno de los adolescentes?. Aquí es donde vivimos. Esta es nuestra casa. Fuera está el laberinto. Yo soy Alby; él, Newt. Y tú eres el primero desde que mataron a Nick».
Resolver el laberinto se suponía que era el final. No más pruebas, no más huidas. Thomas creía que salir significaba que todos recobrarían sus vidas, pero ninguno sabía a qué clase de vida estaban volviendo. Árida y carbonizada, gran parte de la tierra es un territorio inservible. El sol abrasa, los gobiernos han caído y una misteriosa enfermedad se ha ido apoderando poco a poco de la gente. Sus causas son desconocidas; su resultado, la locura. En un lugar infestado de miseria y ruina, y por donde la gente ha enloquecido y deambula en busca de víctimas, Thomas conoce a una chica, Brenda, que asegura haber contraído la enfermedad y estar a punto de sucumbir a sus efectos. Entretanto, Teresa ha desaparecido, la organización CRUEL les ha dejado un mensaje, un misterioso chico ha llegado y alguien ha tatuado unas palabras en los cuellos de los clarianos. La de Minho dice «el líder»; la de Thomas, «el que debe ser asesinado».
“Wonderful . . . Dashner shares with Rowling a nimble use of fancy, delayed revelation, and charm.” — Chicago Sun Times What if every time you made a choice that had a significant consequence, a new, alternate reality was created — the life that would've been had you made the other choice? What if those new realities were in danger? What if it fell to you to save all the realities? Atticus Higginbottom, a.k.a. Tick, is an average thirteen-year-old boy until the day a strange letter arrives in his mailbox. Postmarked from Alaska and cryptically signed with the initials "M.G.," the letter informs Tick that dangerous — perhaps even deadly — events have been set in motion that could result in the destruction of reality itself. M.G. promises to send Tick twelve riddles that will reveal on a certain day, at a certain time, at a certain place, something extraordinary will happen. Will Tick have the courage to follow the twelve clues M.G. sends to him? Will he be able to solve the riddles in time? Will Tick discover the life he was meant to live? The first volume of an outstanding new children's fantasy series, The Journal of Curious Letters is filled with adventure, humor, riddles, and, oh, yes — danger. . . As M.G. warns Tick, Very frightening things are coming your way. Will you join Tick and his friends on an amazing journey through the Realities? What will your choice be?
“Wonderful . . . Dashner shares with Rowling a nimble use of fancy, delayed revelation, and charm.” — Chicago Sun Times It’s been a quiet summer for Tick, Paul, and Sofia, but the latest message from Master George changes everything. The Realities are in danger — and from something more terrible than Mistress Jane and the mutated Chi’karda of the Thirteenth Reality. People from all Realities are unexplainably going insane. Worse, some Realities are fragmenting, disintegrating into nothingness. Master George has learned that Mr. Chu from the Fourth Reality is working on a mysterious new weapon called Dark Infinity. But no one has any idea how to stop the weapon — or even if it can be stopped. To make matters worse, Tick and his friends have been kidnapped, forced to wink from Reality to Reality, solving impossible riddles in order to survive the deadly traps surrounding them. Mistress Jane and Tick find themselves in a race to reach the weapon first — but who will destroy it and who will become its master?
Things have changed for Atticus Higginbottom. After the near catastrophe in the Fourth Reality, Tick’s being homeschooled in the fields of science, trying to master the mysterious Chi’karda. But just as he begins to make progress, Mistress Jane reappears, now hideously scarred and much more powerful. She has tapped into the universe’s darkest secret to create the Blade of Shattered Hope, and in her quest to attain a Utopian Reality for the future of mankind, she’s ready to risk billions of lives—including those of Tick’s parents and sisters—to set her plan in motion. Her vengeance knows no bounds. When rumors begin to circulate about the secret scientific experiments taking place at the Factory, Tick and his friends Sato, Sofia, and Paul are faced with their most dangerous task yet. And they must not fail; the entire universe
