The Death Cure [Review]

325 Pages [Kindle]
Published 11 October 2011

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?

My Thoughts:
The Death Cure gets intense and emotional, more so than the previous books. Who can Thomas trust? Can he even trust himself? After being separated from the other Gladers in solitary confinement for 2 weeks, Thomas is ready for another trial to begin. Mr. Jansen, aka Rat Man, tells them they are done. They need their memories back to help them finish what they started, but there are no more trials. They have a chip planted in their brains that wiped their memories and also let WICKED control them. Thomas and a few others choose not to have it removed. They decide to get out.

I thought this was really action-packed. It was the perfect ending to the series. I am really excited to read the prequel: The Kill Order.

I really enjoyed this conclusion to the maze runner trilogy-it was perfect and nothing I could have predicted.

This series had so many twists & turns...I loved how you never knew who to trust or root for. I couldn't read this book fast enough. You'll love The Kill Order!!!!
