This is the third in a trilogy. So you will want to read The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials first.
So Thomas made it out of the Scorch Trials alive, but he's now locked up because he has the virus. Surprise, surprise, everyone has the virus. It's just that he and some of his friends are immune to its effects, a.k.a. "Munies." Unfortunately, Newt is not immune, but that doesn't mean that Thomas will leave him behind. He and some of his friends get out of WICKED headquarters and head for the city, but the trials seem tame compare to the real world with so many under the Flare's control. Will they ever find a cure? Will they ever be safe?
This book was such a disappointment after The Scorch Trials. I will have to say that I did not enjoy the ending, and I felt like Dashner killed off characters he couldn't find a way to save. There is no happy ending in this, and I have to say I struggled through most of the book. When it ended, I had to say, "Really? That's it." I thought there was another book, and there is, but it's a prequel, so no luck for the characters that were killed in this last book.
