The final piece of the series, The Death Cure is about W.I.C.K.E.D's efforts to find an antidote to the epidemic that has plagued the world. The Gladers, as well as Group B, are cooped up in the organization's headquarters. After escaping, they travel to Denver, where they begin to see the true wrath of the Flare. Friends are lost in the chaos.

I love this book even though endings are always bittersweet to me. With events that come out of nowhere, I couldn't put down my book. I found myself haunted somewhat by the drudging finality of the story near the end. I didn't really like how Thomas has Brenda as a love interest, but the memorandum message from Chancellor Paige was a good last word.

This book would be great for anyone who likes having their heart thrown around with all of the surprising outcomes there are. Anyone who likes a good death will appreciate this novel, and anyone who likes a good mystery will pour over it like I have. And remember, W.I.C.K.E.D. is good.
