Thomas has been alone with his thoughts, locked in a White Room, worried beyond belief that he's the only Glader left alive. But when the 'Rat Man' arrives, he reveals the fact that all of Thomas' friends are okay. The Flare - the disease - has taken over the outside world, but Thomas and a few of his friends are 'Munies' - immune to the wretched disease that is slowing eating away at the sanity of the human race. They have the power to survive because the Flare can't touch them. And all the Trials, all the experiments, were so that WICKED could ultimately find out WHY they were immune to the Flare, and create a blueprint that would offer up a cure to save the entire human race. Thomas, Newt and Minho soon find themselves back together, yet they are still a group that stands alone. The three boys, with their new friend Brenda by their side, break off from the other 'Munies' and break out of WICKED headquarters. From there the story goes into overdrive, taking readers into a world that has become a huge mess. More and more 'Immunes' are being taken off the streets - disappearing; and the gossip is that WICKED is rebuilding their forces by stealing new subjects for brand new Trials, just in case this set did not ultimately find the cure. Trying desperately to solve a puzzle and stay away from the 'Rat Man,' this group of friends is once again ready for a fight. Vivid, richly-detailed characters, exciting, intriguing - there are really not enough adjectives for Mr. Dashner's amazing series that hits home on so many levels, that readers will be thinking about this for a very long time to come. This book will make everyone wonder if the end does justify the means; and if a small group of David's can topple a true Goliath based on passion, fear, and loyalty to one another. There is no higher recommendation for this book than to simply say - The Maze Runner trilogy is one of a kind. Whether anyone agrees or not, THIS is the series of books that SHOULD be turned into movies. Not only would the adventure be a thrill ride, but the ultimate outcome will leave readers and movie-goers breathless. A huge Bravo! Quill Says: Mr. Dashner has never disappointed; and with this amazing finale he has proven himself to be a complete genius!

I've just finished the second book. Reading can become quite a bore in the this genre when not suspensful, daring, and creative enough. James Dashner suprasses those expections. He is spunky, adverturous, and outright insane...but it the best way possible! I am attached to Thomas, Minho, Teresa, and Newt (not including old Frypan and the new characters). At the end of book two I thought, I wonder if Thomas is really going crazy or if this is just another one of WICKED's crazy plans? This series is so amazing. And after reading this I wonder if I'm going crazy! We're all cranks, maybe! Great job, Dashner.

This book had me frantically turning pages from the moment I picked it up until the last page. The action quite literally never stops. It was the perfect finale to an amazing trilogy. After the intense cliffhangers we were left with at the end of each of the first two books, I found myself (like the gladers) having a hard time discerning truth from reality or trusting seemingly trustworthy characters. Dashner did a fabulous job of bringing the characters to life and placing the reader in their shoes through his impeccable use of timing and brief snapshots into the memorandums of WICKED throughout the entire series. I am sad and happy to have finished book three. I will miss all my favorite characters. I will definitely be revisiting this series time and time again.

Omg I just finished reading it on my nook and am feeling dazed and with one word. WOW!!!!! I am amazed at how good this book and series was. Im so depressed now that its over. Reading this book is a must although the ending is so open for interpretation its going to drive me insane for days. Arggg James Dashner why did it just have to be a trilogy. I definatly recommend this book for readers who enjoy suspense and adventure.

Christian M. Stupendous Book!        “The Death Cure”, by James Dashner, is a stupendous conclusion to the maze runner series. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel from beginning to end. Reading all three of these glittering books has been time well spent. This last book tied up all of the loose ends of the series very nicely. James Dashner creates the perfect scenario with the perfect set of characters. He is an accomplished writer and knows how to keep a captive audience. The entire book unfolded vividly in my imagination. The plot was well thought through and every stimulating element contributed to the magnificent, dramatic conclusion. The book starts out a little slow and there are a few weak points in the plot but, I still enjoyed every minute of it. Thomas wakes up in a solid white room and is forced to stay there for what seems like forever until rat man walks in to set up the story. WICKED expects Thomas to trust them, but why on earth should he? It is up to Thomas and his friends to decide what to do as the flare, an extremely contagious, deadly disease, is running rampant throughout the world.  I recommend this outstanding read to absolutely anyone who loves a great book full of suspense. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. I could never set this book down, I would find myself reading an hour past when I told myself to stop. “The Death Cure” is new and fresh and I fell in love with it as soon as I started reading. This entire series is a must read and in my opinion is better than Harry Potter. I give this book a strong 5 out of 5. “The Death Cure”, by James Dashner, was a flawless ending to a beautiful series.

Well, who would have thought that I would actually last through the entire series. The Maze Runner story is odd and does not provide definite answers even at the very end. It's an OK trilogy and this last book isn't better or worse than the other two books. At times I felt frustrated and thought about giving up but I needed to make it to the end and find out what in the world that WICKED group was about - was WICKED good? At the end, I wasn't satisfied nor disappointed - I was just happy that the series was over.

This series follows the typical pattern: a compelling first novel, a slightly less satisfying sequel, and a sub par finale. Dashner aims to stuff too much plot into too little space, and frankly I wish it had been two books; the plot is not nearly as complex as the storyline requires.

I would highly recommend reading this book because the first two books in the series (The Maze Runner then the Scorch Trials) are amazing and this book is very good to but it was not the best because the first one still takes that spot, but still read it. Now if you like fictional books like the Hunger Games (which are good to) you would love this book. You should still read this book because it straps you in like in movies and then switches to commercial break when you want to know what is next then it takes off with a thrilling finish that anybody would like. Also if you haven't read the first two books in the series you should not read this one because it wouldn't pull you in like the first two books did and you will need some of the information from the other books to because that is another reason you need to read the first two books and finally if you did not have any background info at all you would not know what the characters have been through in the first two books, so you wouldn't have any idea on what did happen or what is going to happen at all. So now you should have made your choice and you should have already bought the book or the first two books and if you need me to convince you even more if you do not get it you will regret it.

The end of this book was one of the most disapponting books I've read. I have been waiting for this book for a very long time and I was quite angry with how bad and poorly written the ending was. If you are looking for answers about WICKED this is not the book for you.

I am a person who if I can will read for hours without an end and with the Maze Runner series thats exactly what i've been doing. I finished the Scorch trials exactly when the Death Cure came out and I can only say how amazing it is and it does make you question the diffrent morals to follw.

I love this book, the ending was not quite what i expected but non the less amazing. The entire book is suspensful and keeps you guessing what will happen next. I found myself not being able to put this book down. Dasher has certanly outdone himself with this series, I would like to see a movie made but just hope it dosnt ruin the book. Highly recomended to anyone.

Simply amazing. By page 50, there were at least 3 twists, if not more. The character build up is great, you know the emotions of Thomas like you're him, even as it is written in 3rd person. I can't explain how great the characters are, you will have to read it yourself. The romance is the best part. It's not lovey-dovey of any type at all, it's amazing how incredible it can be while still discreet. The only issue I had with it was the lack of description, mostly towards the end, but the rest of the book makes up for the five stars I gave it. I was inclined to get this the first day it came out, but disappointed about the petite display in the center of the store. I have to add that Brenda made it all worth while. One of my most favorite characters of all time. I love her so much that because she didn't make an appearance in the first 37 pages, I flipped out at the thought of her death. Just thought I would share that!
