"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?"-Goodreads

"Aw shuck, it ended!" That was my response at the end of the book, it was epically awesome and I have no doubts in my mind - this series is a must read!

Through Thomas's POV, TDC is told. I love him as a narrator, he has a certain voice about him that is so easy to get into. While reading this book, it was like meeting old friends again - that's how close I got to this group of teenagers. They have become so real to me! I have to say -besides Thomas- my favourite character is Minho! He is just awesome; in his sarcastic, loud mouth, short temper way! The remarks between the two friends, Minho and Thomas, just make this book so enjoyable! All the characters are well written in that they each become an individual in the mind of the reader. Each has a unique voice and you can distinuguish who's talking. I love every single one of the Gladers- oh and the good guys who aren't Gladers!

Although this isn't as action-packed as the former ones, I have to say, it kept me up till late in the morning (3 o'clock anyone?) It still had lots of action and events going on. I loved how we get to see a few places in here (even the one portrayed on the cover!)... it kept it interesting. I was so disappointed though at the end because it all came to a conclusion - Thomas's story has ended! Wah! I love this series so much, I could cry that its all over. But I have to say the ending left me satisfied and it was definitely not wrapped up with a bow. Expect a few deaths of main characters (I was SO sad when one of them died, that would be "the boy" one). As the reader I really experienced all the emotions that the characters went through, it was THAT real to me.

I highly recommend this series for everyone! Its one of my favourites that I will be re-visiting soon! I really connected with the characters, they are really special to me (seriously, I have to keep reminding myself that Thomas, Minho, and Newt aren't real) AND the action in this trilogy is EPIC! So pick them up and read them - you won't be disappointed!


"He couldn't get her out of his head, even though he hated her a little more with every passing moment. Her last words to him had been WICKED is good, and right or wrong, to Thomas she'd come to represent all the terrible things that had happened. Every thime he thought of her, rage boiled inside him.
Maybe all that anger was teh last string tethering him to sanity as he waited.
Eat. Sleep. Exercise. Thirst for revenge. that was what he did for three more days. Alone.
On the twenty-sixth day, the door opened."

Book Trailer: (It's a little creepy (so don't watch it in the dark! and it doesn't quite explain the book but hey might as well show you right?) but I have to say the books aren't THAT creepy - the trailer just portrays it that way :)

Oh and if your interested HERE is the site for the books (they have some really cool games based on the books, along with excerpts and more!)


  1. This is one of my Christmas gifts, nbut I've yet to read it! I'm glad you liked it:)

  2. Don't hate me but Ive never read The Maze Runner.... hopefully this changes and soon! i'll let you know how book 3 treats me when i get around to it :)haha!

  3. Now that this entire series is out, I'm going to have to read it! I just love characters that feel like old friends; those are the best. Although, that means it's all the more horrible when one of them dies... I've heard that this series is very fast paced, which is excellent, even if this one isn't quite as much as the first two. Glad you loved it!
