Newt hates the Maze. Newt hates the Creators. He doesn't trust either and hardly trusts the Gladers. Only two people in twenty-nine boys, and one of them--Minho, he only trusts because he has to in order to survive his job as a Runner. The other, however, is different. Newt can't put his finger on it, but there's something different about Alby. The boy is quiet and strong; he doesn't talk to many of the boys. He talks to Newt though and Newt can't help but feel a little special. As they become closer, a bond grows between them, and Newt comes to see Alby as his best friend. Newt promises himself that if nothing else--even if he has to give up his own freedom, even if he has to give up his own life--he will get Alby out of there.
Derek Hale and his best friend Isaac Lahey are firefighters of Beacon Hills. They are constantly putting themselves in danger to save others. They have always known loss and they have come to accept the dangers of the job. When two new paramedics join the team, one brings with him a kind of danger that Derek isn't sure he wants to face.
