When sun flares hit the Earth, intense heat, toxic radiation and flooding followed, wiping out much of the human race. Those who survived live in basic communities in the mountains, hunting for food. For Mark and his friends, surviving is difficult, and then an enemy arrives, infecting people with a highly contagious virus. Thousands die, and the virus is spreading. Worse, it's mutating, and people are going crazy. It's up to Mark and his friends to find the enemy - and a cure - before the Flare infects them all ...
James Dashner wrote a compelling trilogy that left you wondering how and where did it all began. I wasn’t expecting Dashner to disappoint me and after reading this book, I wasn’t. It was everything I was expecting and so much more.
The book starts off with showing how Thomas is about to be wiped of his memories and be sent into the maze. But then we are thrown back thirteen years where we are introduced to Mark and Trina. Things are going as well as one can hope but then a mysterious ship invades their home where people send down an array of darts injecting the victims with a contagious disease that has two outcomes which they were not expecting.
The book was fast paced, the chapters flowed and there were so many twists and turns in how Wicked came to be and how the disease known as the flare got out of control. These characters go through hell to find a cure or an answer.
The ending was so exciting and worth the read. I loved how questions were answered and James Dashner writes it with such ease. I encourage everyone to check out this series because you will not be disappointed.
