About the Book
The Death Cure (Maze Runner, #3)
Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test.
What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says.
The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than Thomas could ever imagine.
Will anyone survive the Death Cure?
WICKED is good.
The last book of The Maze Runner series, The Death Cure, was definitely the hardest to read. I didn’t want the books to end and I didn’t want the loss of characters (when does a favorite of mine not die…).
After their time in the Scorch, Thomas and friends ended up at WICKED headquarters, poor Thomas, locked in a padded room. After about three weeks he’s released from his room and soon Thomas, Minho, Newt, Brenda and Jorge make their escape, thinking Teresa, Frypan and Group B have already left them behind. They head to Denver, a quarantined city and making their way through the city, they meet up with the others and an enemy or two.
I can’t really say a lot about the book without giving the whole thing away since it’s continued throughout a series but I felt it was a clean ending, there were no unanswered questions for me or a terribly depressing conclusion.
The Death Cure was a nice finish to the Maze Runner series. As usual, Dashner’s writing kept me hooked and his characters are easy to love and connect with. Like I said, there is a bit of death obviously...and I cried/tried to deny that a certain someone wasn’t meant to make it to the end.
Even with the death, I just thought The Death Cure kicked ass! It’s fun, thought-provoking and has a male POV which always makes me happy.
The Death Cure
Minho looked at Thomas, a serious expression on his face. “If I don’t see you on the other side,” he said in a sappy voice, “remember that I love you.” Snickering at Thomas’ eye roll, he went through the doors and they closed.
“Dude, you tried to slice my you-know-whats off!”
Thomas laughed, something he hadn’t done in a long time. He welcomed it happily. “Too bad I didn’t. Could’ve saved the world from future little Minhos.”
