The Death Cure- 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 is the final installment in the Maze Runner trilogy so i wont spoil it by going into details. 
I had heard a lot of bad things about this one and a lot of people thought it hadn't been a good end to the series, but i actually thought it ended really well.
All our questions weren't exactly answered but i think its good to leave a little to the imagination. I liked the way it wrapped up and really enjoyed the series overall.
The only thing i can really complain about is that there were a few times when Thomas just did really stupid things. It bugged me because it seemed obvious a few of his choices were stupid but not enough for it to effect the book as a whole.
I loved seeing what happened to all the gladers and getting the few answers that were given about certain things.
I found with this trilogy that the first book was very different to the last two and i can see why a lot of people had issues with the last two. To go from reading the first which was a very different kind of world and story to the world that is introduced in the second two is a bit of a shock but i understand why the story went the way it did and was still happy to follow the characters on their journeyy.

Really great trilogy and i recommend it for any dystopian lovers, or someone wanting an action packed read.
Four stars
