"The mighty Gladers, back together again"

The Death Cure review
"Somehow, some way"
I can't believe it's all over.

The frightening plot of The Maze Runner grabbed me by the throat. The Scorch Trials only raised more questions. When I was vacationing in Turkey earlier this month, I wanted to finally know what's wat, putting Dashner's #TMR book trilogy in the rear-view mirror just in the time for the release of the movie in September.

WICKED informs Thomas and the other Gladers that the Trials are over. They are offered the chance to restore their memories, with the controlling device in their brains also to be removed, but Thomas, Minho and Newt decline, after which they are forced to go through the process. Luckily, with the help of Brenda, they manage to escape, fleeing to Denver in a Berg piloted by Jorge, in the hope of meeting Hans, a former WICKED neurologist. And then Gally shows up...

It's fast-paced. It's intense. Sure, The Death Cure might fall a bit short on substance and rehashes once more what worked well in Part 1 and Part 2, but if you're looking for an action-packed finale, Dashner delivers just that. The plot is a bit of a mess, with ridiculous twists and vague explanations that feel lazy and half-hearted, but I still enjoyed the ride and I have a feeling that you will too if you enjoyed The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials.
