This three-part series – made up of "The Maze Runner," "The Scorch Trials," and "The Death Cure" – centers on a teen named Thomas as he fights to survive in a post-apocalyptic world. He wakes up one morning, memory gone, in a glade in the middle of a massive, dangerous maze, and must work with a band of "Gladers" to escape. But that's only the first of the trials he has to go through. It's an absorbing, action-packed series – think "Harry Potter" and "The Hunger Games" combined.
