In a futuristic world, all humans struggle with a disease known as “The Flare”. The disease makes those infected attempt to attack and consume other humans. An agency known as W.I.C.K.E.D. is struggling to discover a cure for the disease. Luckily, a small percentage of people, 0.01% of the population, are immune. These people, jealously nicknamed munies after normal people’s hatred for the immune population, are the key to WICKED’s attempt to finding a cure. However, those immune, such as Thomas and his friends Minho and Teresa, refuse to aid WICKED because the agency’s approach to the cure involves unethical procedures. Nevertheless WICKED won’t take no for an answer. Thomas and thirty other immunes are taken away to a facility where research will soon begin on their precious brains in the endeavor of finding out why the disease has no effect on them. Time is quickly slipping away from their fingers. The kidnapped group must either decide to take part in the deadly experiments that are planned for them or attempt an escape. They’re only chance is a girl named Brenda who Thomas passionately befriended in the past. She is one of WICKED’s agents, but can help them escape. Can she be trusted?

The Death Cure is the third book in a three part trilogy containing The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials. Throughout this book, Thomas and his friends face many challenges as they attempt to survive in the vastly changed Earth. Cranks, those infected with the flare, roam the land and are constantly providing opportunities for Thomas and the group to demonstrate their teamwork skills. The characters must work together and watch each other’s backs constantly while all trusting that their friends will do the same for them. At the same time Thomas struggles with two girls, Teresa and Brenda, as he can’t decide upon which one he should trust and follow. I would recommend this book to any readers who enjoy romance and action. This book demonstrates the necessity to trust your friends at all costs and to have teamwork. In The Death Cure Thomas must try to preserve his friend’s lives while at the same time guiding all of them towards safety, away from WICKED.
