5 April 2012 Maze Runner Series (Book 3)
The Trials are over. WICKED have collected all the information they can. Now it's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test. But something has happened that no-one at WICKED has foreseen: Thomas has remembered more than they think. And he knows WICKED can't be trusted ... The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than anyone could have imagined. With the Gladers divided, can they all make it?

This book was just nothing compared to the other two in the series. It was like the author just lost his flare (sorry couldn't help myself!) for writing. The character development of Theresa is non existent in this book along with the fact the main female protagonist was only mentioned in about fifteen pages. This book has the worst ending I have ever read. So many questions unanswered and so many routes he could have taken with it and he goes for the shortest easiest one which was so bad a child could have done a better job. I was just so disappointed. Terrible book to end an amazing series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but a bit flawed... 30 Aug 2012
I'll be honest, I'm writing this just half an hour after finishing the book, and whilst I freaking loved it, there is a big sense of disappointment for me. The book had me hooked the whole way, that's a given. It's action packed. Taught and the writing is fluid. But then the ending... Whilst good... Argh. I just can't explain it. It wasn't what I was expecting, and while I suppose it is a natural ending, it just happens. There's no explanation. No revelation. It just happens.

So many questions that I'd hoped would of been answered are left hanging. Maybe we'll just never know their answers...

But for the main part I loved this book. As I've already said, it is so action packed. I think the book benefits from the fact that the Trials are over. At points in the previous two books, The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials, there were moments where it dragged slightly, thanks to the Trials being run by ever omnipresent WICKED.

And speaking of WICKED, they never fail to amaze me. Yet again, they seem to grow more twisted, more sinister. More sick. There were moments in The Death Cure that had me gasping for breath, and even made me feel repulsed. Janson, or Rat Man as the Gladers know him is the worst. A truly horrible character... The character development, again is lacking, but with this series, it's not really about the characters. It's more about the plot, and the destination.

Cranks are getting worse. The Flare is spreading far faster and wider than WICKED could of anticipated, and time is running out. They're nearing the end of their testing, and have nearly completed the blueprint that will end it all. They're nearing on a cure, or so they claim. But they need just one last thing, one piece of the puzzle to make it all complete. The Final Candidate.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Epic Finale... 22 Oct 2014
By Steph
Format:Kindle Edition
After an epic ending to the Scorch trials, i could not wait to pick up the Death Cure and I was not disappointed. The trials are finally over and Thomas and his friends have a new challenge to face - can WICKED be trusted?

This book is focuses more on the outside world. It was fascinating to see the destruction that is left behind by the flare and how civilization is functioning. Again it is full of action, and I must admit the ended dragged on a bit - i got to the point where i thought could have cut out half of it out, but part of that could have been anticipation of the finish.

I dropped a star because there was parts which confused me..

I do not understand the need for Ava Paige, she barely appeared in the book but yet played a vital role in the ending. The character was not developed and im still confused as to how Rat Man had so much control when she was the leader.
Another negative was Theresa and the fact she played such a small role in the final book. Although she was involved throughout she seemed to be replaced as the lead female protagonist and just ended up being another one of the group. Her relationship with Thomas also was not elaborated on leaving one of the final scenes void of emotion for that reason.

Overall it was still an Epic finale - and a trilogy I would wholly recommend that you read. With the influx of popular distopian fiction I had begun to become tired of the concept but I was glad I shrugged off my worries and read this as it restored my faith.

Lets hope the films do them justice....

4.0 out of 5 stars Great end to a great series 17 Sep 2014
By Dyl
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The Death Cure is the third part of the Maze Runner trilogy and it has manages to keep the action and suspense going right up to the end. The previous two books have been full of confusing twists and turns making sure that the reader is never quite sure who is telling the truth and who is lying. Other reviews have compared this to the TV series LOST which isn’t a bad comparison. This confusion continues in the third book but thankfully things are explained a bit better than they were in the famous TV show.

The first two books were fairly well packed with action scenarios as well and this too continues into book three. Poor Thomas and his friends have taken quite a battering throughout the series but somehow they manage to keep going. They are well written central characters and therefore I was hoping for things to go right for them. There are some books where I’m not really all that bothered if characters get hurt or killed off because I feel nothing towards them.

Whilst maybe not quite as good as The Hunger Games, (in my opinion), it is certainly far superior to the Divergent trilogy and is well worth reading by any fan of this type of fiction. Hopefully the movie does it justice and more people read this great series. I just need to read the prequel now.
