The Death Cure Review

384 pages
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?

Review: 
Pretty good ending to the series. As usual full of action and mystery about Wicked, plenty of wondering whether this whole story is one new game. You get to see the world outside of the Trials and understand why the Trials were brought about. I was upset about a couple of the deaths in this novel because it didn't seem fair but the ending was interesting although a bit open-ended. Romance isn't a focal point of this novel so for those who like more action and adventure this last installment will suit them just fine. I did think Thomas can be pretty narrow-minded at times, however as the book went on and more of his past came out it was easier to understand why. This was a really great read and I recommend this book to those who have read the first two.
