The Death Cure

The Death Cure
by James Dashner

Genre: Young Adult Fiction, Dystopian Fiction

Synopsis:  Thomas knows that WICKED can't be trusted.  They stole his memories and locked him inside the Maze.  They forced him to the brink of death by dropping him in the wilds of the Scorch.  And they took the Gladers, his only friends, from him.

Now WICKED says that the time for lies is over.  That they've collected all the data they can from the Trials and will rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission: to complete the blueprint for the cure for the Flare.  But Thomas must undergo one final test.

What WICKED doesn't know, however, is that Thomas has already remembered far more than they think.  And it's enough to prove that he can't believe a word of what WICKED says.

The time for lies is over.  And the truth is more dangerous that Thomas could ever have imagined.
From the book jacket

Review:  This was a satisfying final to The Maze Runner trilogy.  It just wasn't as exciting or action packed as the first two books.  This one answered all the questions that I still had after reading the first two and I feel that the series ended realistically.  The pace of this book was quite slow and there wasn't too much of a story.  Clearly there needed to be another book after The Scorch Trials to answer questions and to wrap the story up but I would really like to have seem more meat to this book.

Rating: 3 stars
