It’s the end of the line.
WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.
Will anyone survive?
What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.
The truth will be terrifying.
Thomas beat the Maze. He survived the Scorch. He’ll risk anything to save his friends. But the truth might be what ends it all.
The time for lies is over.
Okay, so I really enjoyed this book but at the same time I felt like it was a little underwhelming. Like I’m not complaining about the action scenes because I loved them but I felt like we barely got answers to our questions. Like compared to the ending of the second book and this book, it might as well of been a new series because nothing was answered and I kinda felt more confused than ever. The beginning of the book was interesting, nothing much happened in the middle and while I loved the ending, it did felt kinda rushed.
I was really sad about Newt’s death because I love him so much! And even though Teresa annoyed me, her death was sad. There’s a lot of fighting and action which makes things hella fun and entertaining to read but there’s some parts of the book where the plot kept dragging. I’m so proud of how Thomas grew so much from the first book to now and his friendship with Newt and Minho were one of my favorite things about this book. I also prefer his relationship with Brenda than Teresa but the plot twist at the end has me so conflicted about my feelings for Brenda.
While I did enjoy the book, I felt like we should’ve had more answers to our questions and more character development for characters like Teresa and Aris. Aris was extremely important in book 2 but forgotten in this book. The movie version of this book looks a little bit better so maybe I should see that. But I still love the book series and I’m satisfied with the ending!
