The Death Cure

The Death Cure
By James Dashner

Synopsis (from Goodreads):

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 Review:
The Maze Runner Trilogy is one of my favorite series ever. The Death Cure is the third and final installment in the trilogy, and also one of the best. It manages to keep up the intense pace of the previous books The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials. One of my favorite things is that the book is completely unpredictable. You turn one way and you end up where you started. In The Death Cure, you finally know the answers to all the mysteries. Dashner does an amazing job of keeping you hooked.
In this trilogy, Dashner creates a world on the brink of destruction. The sun was bumped closer to earth, so the world started to overheat, and to make things worse, there is a deadly disease called the flare on the loose. It affects people's brains, making them slowly go crazy. The company, WICKED is having a group of teenagers go through Trials to find a cure to the flare. The books are placed in the future, although it never says when, exactly.
There are interesting twists and turns in the book, all ending with a nice conclusion. I had a very hard time putting the book down, even to eat. I think that anyone who loves a suspenseful, action-adventure book will be addicted to Dashner's series. I highly recommend it.
