Book four in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don’t miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!
Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth, killing most of the population.
Mark and Trina were there when it happened. They survived. But now a virus is spreading. A virus that fills humans with murderous rage.
They’re convinced that there’s a way to save those who are left—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some you’re worth more dead than alive.
The end is only the beginning.
The Maze Runner, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and Maze Runner: The Death Cure are all now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster.
Also look for James Dashner’s edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

we finally see how it all began. this book takes us to the struggle of the world before the maze, when the flares happen and when the flare takes the rest of the population. Dashner introduces new characters in the first generation of this new world. it is action packed, well written, and sprinkled with a little love. Not just love in the standard man women sense but the over laying theme of love of each other and when your family is taken from you, what would you do to protect the new one you have made in the face of disaster. its great to see how thomas becomes thomas, explanations are given, final decisions on who the enemy really is, and why thomas and theresa made the choice they did in the very beginning. action packed is an understatement. if you are looking for the mental questions and constant state of confusion this one doesn't have it as the other three do. This is the explanation for the rest of the series, and knowing the ultimate outcome it gives you the insight instead of being in the same boat as the others who had no idea what was happening. I'm actually sad the series is over!
I read some other reviews that complained that there were new people -adults- unfamiliar characters. Well let's think about this.... This is a series about kids .... If you write a prequel -those kids don't get any older going back in time ;-) and I doubt anyone would have enjoyed reading a prequel from the perspective of infants.
It was perfect !! It answered so much more than I ever thought I could get the answers to ! You will love discovering everything Dashner reveals. It is soooo great ! It is truly the perfect prequel to this series and I HIGHLY recommend it !!!
GREAT READ FROM START TO FINISH!!! MUST READ
#1 THE MAZE RUNNER, #2 THE DEATH CURE,#3 THE KILL ORDER!!!
YOU WILL LOVE IT & WONT BE ABLE TO PUT IT DOWN!!!
