The Glade is surrounded by a giant maze that has walls that move in the middle of the night. But that isn't the worst part. There's creatures that lurk in the maze called greivers. Their part machine and part beast. If you get stung by one of these monsters, you are guaranteed agony for days. The Gladers goal is to escape the Maze but that isn't as easy as it sounds.
