Read the third book in the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. The first book, The Maze Runner, is soon to be a major motion picture starring Dylan O’Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie Sangster, Will Poulter, and Aml Ameen and hits theaters September 19, 2014!

It’s the end of the line.

WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.

Will anyone survive?

What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.

The truth will be terrifying.

Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.

The time for lies is over.

    In this book, the boys already complete the second challenge the Scorch Trials. To me, this book isn't as interesting as the other two books, I got a little bored halfway through the book, I think if I can change the story, I'll make the boys actually trying to help save the cure of the flare, but not join WCKD. In this book, they are just basically running away from everything and want to go back and destroy WCKD. And I think the ending is very interesting, it's kind of a sad ending. I would recommend this book to other people who enjoys reading the first two books.

      I enjoyed this book when I was reading it. In the story, after Thomas and the others went through the Scorch Trials, they joined the Right Arm and planned to overthrow WICKED. I think the ending of this book was a little bit boring, and if I can change it, I would make it more exciting and leave it like a cliff hanger instead of a proper boring ending so the reader would want to know more. Thomas again ran into a lot of problems with WICKED and others during this book, and I think the events that happened were very cool with the advanced technology. I would recommend this book to others who like science fictions.

        To be a leader, you should be positive, to have the will to trace freedom, knowing the big goal our team is heading for, last but not least, letting your teammates believe you, so you have to do what you say, rather than asking other to do what you say. To be at school at seven, to be the first one to wear name tag, then everyone will follow you. A man of his word, is the man everyone should stay, to join, to follow, for brighter future.

              This book is amazing full of suspence and much more, and guess what Gally is back! The trials is over. Wicked is planning to restore the survivors' memories and complete to the final cure of the Flare. But Thomas had already remembered more then what I think. Then he knows WIcked must not be trusted..... The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous that Thomas could ever imagine. Will everyone survive the death cure. THis book is awesome full of good paths and sad parts in the same time but one thing Tersea dies....

                I gave this book 3 stars because Thomas's girlfriend die when the tower collapse. I believe that the main character of the story should not be dead. But, when Teresa died, Thomas did not die. .

                  I read the first book, the Maze Runner, and I loved that. So after that I read the second book, the scorch trials, and loved that. After, I asked for the Death Cure for my birthday, so far I really like it.

                    The main character in the book is Thomas and he has some supporting characters like Teresa, Minho, Newt, Brenda, Gally, and Jorge. My favorite character is definitely Minho because I feel like he brings a lot of personality and you just feel like he is a good person and a person you would like to be your friend. I liked the book a lot, I think that it was fun to read and it brought an interesting ending at the end, it was kind of like a cliffhanger at the end though so I would like to know what happened after that. I would definitely recommend this book to another person, it was a adventure, dystopia type book, however you should really read the first two books first.
