Once there was a world’s end.

The forests burned, the lakes and rivers dried up, and the oceans swelled.

Then came a plague, and fever spread across the globe. Families died, violence reigned, and man killed man.

Next came WICKED, who were looking for an answer. And then they found the perfect boy.

The boy’s name was Thomas, and Thomas built a maze.

Now there are secrets.

There are lies.

And there are loyalties history could never have foreseen. 

This is the story of that boy, Thomas, and how he built a maze that only he could tear down.

All will be revealed.
Rating: 5/5

My Review:

The first proper book review I did on this blog was The Kill Order, so I've never actually done a blog post for each book in the series, only a brief post about it and my thoughts. I really love this series, it's one of my favourites so to say I was anticipating this book is an understatement.

This is what I describe to others as the missing chunk in the series. In The Maze Runner, it starts like the movie with Thomas waking up in the box on his way to the maze with no memory of his life before that point, and goes from there. The Kill Order is about when it all began, back when the The Flare first descends upon people, so the characters that we knew from the series aren't introduced yet, but end on around the time Thomas and the others are first recruited to WICKED. This book is the missing piece. It begins when Thomas and the others first joined WICKED up to when Thomas goes into the maze.

I really loved this book! I loved finally getting an in depth look at what it was like for them growing up in the maze, what lead Thomas and Teresa to building the maze, and finally Thomas' decision to enter the maze and how all of that happened. It was great to see that some of the relationships we know existed in the series, also existed back before the got their memories erased. I loved getting to read another story through Thomas' perspective as I've always been a fan of his. To get to see him grow up, and adapt to the world around him and become the person that he ends up being in the series so really great.

I recommend this series for anyone who would be interested in this genre. I'm so glad that I got introduced to it, even if it was just because I heard Dylan O'Brien got cast as the lead character. I ended up really loving it beyond that. I look forward to eventually reading this series again.
