The Death Cure (The Maze Runner #3) by: James Dashner

Release Date: October 11, 2011
from Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Goodreads | Amazon

"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."

My Thoughts:

Well this was a crazy way to wrap things up. Nothing happened like I thought it would, but that kinda made the book even better. It’s crazy and twisty and it’s hard to say much without spoiling it, so this will be a pretty short review.

Thomas was still a likable MC in this one, but I do admit that he frustrated me on more than one occasion. He just made me a bit crazy with some of the decisions he made and the way his thoughts would run. But in the end I still really liked him. I also came to really like Brenda in this one. I wasn’t her biggest fan in the previous book, but I really liked the way her character progressed. There were a few occurrences that broke my heart in this one and not everyone makes it out unscathed. It’s a battle and people are ruthless.

The Death Cure was a crazy ride and I never knew what was going to happen next. The twist at the end was really good and I liked that the book kept me on my toes up until the last page. Definitely a fun series. And if you are an audio fan, the narrator for these books is absolutely amazing! I really think he added to the story for me.


  1. I COMPLETELY agree with you on Thomas. I love him and he's a great MC, but there were a few times I wanted to shake him. And I never really came around to Brenda -- I have many a gripe where those two are concerned lol. But this book was my favorite in the series even though it completely broke me and I cried for three days. Oops. I'm so glad you liked this series! Awesome review! *hugs* <3

    1. You and I are pretty much on the same page with this series and I love it! I have gripes with Thomas and Brenda too, but I came to accept it even though I didn't love it. The Maze Runner is still my favorite but I did like this one!

  2. I still need to get to this one! I'm glad to read that Thomas was still an enjoyable character and that the book ended in a very unexpected way. That makes me excited about finally getting to it even though Thomas did drive you a bit crazy in this one. Man, I need to finish this series!

    Lovely review!! *HUGGLES* *Epic high five*

  3. Good to hear it was a good and surprising twist. I only read the first of these, a bit too out there for me

  4. Ending books can be hard to take sometimes. I started this series but never got into it. I do like the idea of the unexpected happening.

  5. Great review! I really need to read this one soon. I loved Maze Runner and Scorch Trials, but I keep putting this one off. I'm the worst with finishing a series. It's good to hear that there is a good twist and that it kept you on your toes. That is exactly why I enjoy this series so much.

  6. Even though I'm committed to just watching the movies as opposed to reading the books, you've got me wanting to give it a try. I remember how you didn't like the 2nd book as much, but glad things picked up in this last one.
