The Death Cure


The Death Cure wraps up the Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner. Disclaimer: If you’re planning to read this series but haven’t started yet, skip this review! There won’t be spoilers but just like Scorch Trials, the synopsis might give away part of that story.

Good Reads' Synopsis: "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?"

  What I Thought: This was probably my least favorite of the three books but still worth reading to find out what happens. It wasn’t as suspenseful for me as the first two but I enjoyed the direction the plot went and how the trilogy ultimately ended. Again, don’t let the Young Adult genre throw you. This is a series worth reading and I’m a big advocate of stepping away from your normal reads anyway.

Rating: * * * 1/2
