This is my personal review without spoilers of the actual plot.
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.
I’m glad the author ended this trilogy on a good note. I’m happy with the way this ended. In fact, I think it’s the perfect ending. It’s filled with action and answers. It leaves the characters and the readers exhausted and exhilarated, but most of all despite the lost and despair it leaves us with hope, and that my friend is always a note I like my reads to end with. I’m very happy with the outcome. I loved reading this series. It was exciting and heartbreaking all at the same time and I’m sure that this isn’t the last time I’ll ever read this series again. I’ve looked on the fourth book. Alternatively, 0.5 and I’m struggling deciding if I want to give it a go or not.
Dashner is fantastic when it comes to World building and twists and turns. I must say that I was caught by surprise in some of the things that happened, but then, some I had an idea about and I wasn’t surprised one bit.
When it comes to character building that’s where Dashner is lacking. I didn’t sense much development in any of the characters throughout the entire trilogy. They didn’t seem to develop so much or perhaps I just couldn’t see it. Despite the lack of character development, I still had a blast with this very fast-paced story.
If you liked the first two in this series, I would do myself the favor of finishing the series; this is worth every hour spend. Happy Reading!
