The Scorch Trials Chapter 58

By James Dashner

Chapter 58

  • Teresa asks Thomas if they should get inside of coffin things, hoping that maybe those will transport them. Sounds reasonable.
  • But just as the kids contemplate this, the coffins swing open. A misshapen arm hangs out the side of one, and then a monster walks out. It has light-bulb-like growths all over its body, and it's roughly human-shaped, though taller than the Gladers.
  • Pretty soon, all of these monsters are surrounding the Gladers, and blades shoot out of their fingers, toes, and shoulders.
  • Yikes, maybe Grievers wouldn't have been as bad.
