“The time for lies is over” There is an organization called WICKED. Which is the remaining governments that grouped together in order to stop the outbreak. The flare, a disease that attacks your brain, and makes you go crazy. This disease slowly kills you. Thomas the main character awakens to a bright white room. He doesn’t know how long he has been in this mysterious room. Thomas knows he needs a plan to get out of this place. He has a few friends inside wicked who will help him. Thomas has escaped the maze, and endured the scorch trials. He knows wicked is not to be trusted. Wicked is working on a blueprint of the brain in order to cure the flare. Wicked will stop at nothing to get the data they need in order to create this blueprint. Thomas doesn’t have any of his memories aside from the ones from just weeks before. The swipe took away his memories. The swipe is a memory blocker that wicked installed in his brain. He is slowly getting his memories back though. Wicked offers to remove the swipe, but Thomas refuses. When they try to force this upon Thomas, his friend Brenda intervenes with a quick plan, which leads to Thomas’s escape from the wicked headquarters with several of his friends. Once they escape, Thomas and his friends make their way to the city of Denver, or what’s left of it. Once they arrive in Denver, Thomas joins a group called The Right Arm. This group has the same hatred for wicked that Thomas and his friends do. Thomas and this group devise a plan to send Thomas back to where he had tried so desperately to escape. Thomas discovers, “The truth is more dangerous than [he] could ever have imagined.”

The Death Cure is by far the best book I’ve ever read. This book keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way through it. Being the third book in the series, you have to read the others to know what’s going on in the story. The First book, is all about not knowing what going on. The second, you began to slowly unravel the web of lies. The third finally brings the reader answers. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes suspense and thinking while you’re reading. This series is amazing and I think anyone would like it, who doesn’t mind a little bit of death. You know a book is good when it makes you sad when you’ve finished it. However James Dashner wrote a prequel to this trilogy, and I so excited to read it.
