The Death Cure by James Dashner

This book is the last one in The Maze Runner trilogy, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. You should read the first two books in the series which are described in my blog. Thomas discovers that the trials aren't quite over, but he's had enough. He escapes from WICKED and travels to Denver, one of the few cities that has not been destroyed by the Scorch and the Flare. He discovers an organization that is fighting against WICKED, but it may be too late as the Shanks start an uprising. Thomas also finds out that other people like him are being captured to begin new trials. Thomas seems to be the key to the solving the whole disaster, but is he willing to give up his life?

The format of this book is very much like the first two books, although there aren't as many surprises from WICKED since Thomas has escaped them. The reader is still left to wonder which characters are good and bad. Some of the characters have been working for WICKED while the Flare has been working on the brains of others. The resolution to the story was not what I expected.
