I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
(Finished Reading: 30/09/18
My 49th book this year)
Thomas finds himself with his team who made it through the Maze alive. He thinks all the hard times and terrible events are over. He is about to get the shock of his life when he realises phase two is about to begin and it is a whole lot worse than the maze was.
They must survive two weeks in the Scorch (desert), travel one hundred miles to the safe haven in order to receive the cure for a deadly virus, the flare, that they have all been given. Along the way there are treacherous climate changes, infected others who have been driven crazy and are ready to kill on sight.
Thomas and his group have no idea what has happened to them nor why it is happening to them. But they know they have been chosen and now they must work out how to survive another day.
What a crazy over the top book. The plot seemed so randomly put together with as much shock factor as possible, but it didn’t feel “wow”.
So much memory loss, then random resurfacing memories. Too much mistrust, too much violence and aggression. Lacking reason behind it all yet the answers all point to the final book of the series.
I didn’t like the characters but somehow I enjoyed the book despite its’ flaws. I think I have to read the third book of the series just to find out what it was all about. I guess this counts as a well done to the author as I am recommending this series for those who enjoy their share of violence. But be well prepared for random events and the frustration of realising we still have no answers!!
