Death Cure (The Maze Runner #3) by James Dashner
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?
This book was an amazing finish to the trilogy. It was full of action, right from the beginning. New characters were introduced, old ones brought back and the main characters were as awesome as always. There were some major sad parts in the book, when people died, not necessarily important characters, but the way James Dashner wrote sad parts in the book made me cry, especially in one bit when Minho was saying "When did the world become so shucked?" That made me cry, because Minho was always the funny one and now he was so depressed and sad. Also this book became a guessing game. You didn't know who to trust and nothing is as it seems.
The characters were interesting. Thomas was fainting a lot in the second book, but in this book Thomas became so bad-ass, when he did awesome ninja fighting moves. This started at the very beginning of the book. Teresa was a different case. I was annoyed at her and really didn't like her, mostly because of Thomas. But near the end of the book I just started feeling sorry for her because Thomas just ignored her. Minho was as awesome as always. He had amazing comebacks and was as snarky as always. Newt was my favourite character still even though he was a little grumpier and impulsive in this book.
Overall I liked this book and my advice is to watch out for the sad parts. But because this was such an emotional read and the plot was amazing, I give it 5 out of 5 stars!
