Great addition to the Maze Runner Series, completed the series
Reviewed in the United States on October 4, 2016
I was so excited when I saw that The Fever Code was out. My kids and I are huge fans of the Maze Runner Series (they are ages 14 and 12 now), that we all couldn't wait to read it. I am the faster reader, so I read it first. This is a great addition to the Maze Runner Series. I felt that the series was not complete, unanswered questions, so I was hoping that this book would help fill in the gaps. I can honestly say that this book was amazing. I couldn't put it down, the book flows very quickly. If you have read the Maze Runner Series, then you will want to read the Fever Code also. For instance, if you were like me, and wondered how Thomas reacted differently to those in the maze (friends right away with Chuck, but didn't get along with Gally), then The Fever Code will fill in those missing links. It is a great addition to the series, and for me, it made the series complete. Love this series!
Spoiler Alert: The book starts off with the story of Newt, and how he was taken to the maze, even though he was not immune to the flare. The next chapter, and from then on, focuses on Thomas's story and point of view. I wish that there would have been more stories of they other boys, like Alby, Minho, and Chuck. I think this would have added to the book. I did notice was discrepancy in this book, compared to the first book. In the Fever Code, it listed 40 members going to the maze at once, including Alby, Minho, and Newt, but this is not the same as mentioned in the original Maze Runner. I was disappointed about this, but it might not be that noticeable for others. I will discuss it with my kids, after they finish reading the book, to see if they noticed any discrepancies themselves, or if I'm making a big deal out of something small. This book helps show Thomas's personality, which helps to develop him into the leader that he shows in the other books. I have to admit, the ending caught me off guard. I was a huge fan of Teresa, always rooting for her, in the other books. After reading this ending, I was very disappointed in her.
