Seventy-three years after the events of THE DEATH CURE, when Thomas and other immunes were sent to an island to survive the Flare-triggered apocalypse, their descendants have thrived. Sadina, Isaac, and Jackie all learned about the unkind history of the Gladers from The Book of Newt and tall tales from Old Man Frypan, but when a rusty old boat shows up one day with a woman bearing dark news of the mainland–everything changes. The group and their islander friends are forced to embark back to civilization where they find Cranks have evolved into a more violent, intelligent version of themselves. The islanders are hunted by the Godhead, the Remnant Nation, and scientists with secret agendas. When they cross paths with an orphan named Minho from the Remnant Nation, the dangers become real, and they don’t know who they can trust. The islanders will have to survive long enough to figure out why they are being targeted, who is friend or foe, and what the Godhead has planned for the future of humanity.

My Reveiw

Thank you to the author for providing me with a copy of this book via R&R Book Tours as part of this blog tour in exchange for my honest review and thank you to Shannon for allowing me to take part in this blog tour.

This book takes place 73 years after the events in The Death Cure. It followers the descendants of the original Gladers. We start off on the island where they went for safety all those years ago. Things happen and several of the characters end up back in the real world.

I was really excited to get back into this world because I really enjoyed the Maze Runner series. I was curious to find out where they were so many years later. I guess it makes sense that pretty much all of the characters from the original trilogy have long gone but I have to say I kind of missed them although that doesn’t really hamper my opinion on the book.

It started off slow for me, but it eventually picked up a little. I did enjoy this story, but I am left with so many unanswered questions. So much so that I am just left being confused. I guess it makes sense since there is going to be more books but I don’t particularly like being left not really knowing what’s going on at all. I enjoyed the action and the friendships I just wish we could have gotten more answers.

Like I said I did enjoy this, but I needed more. I think it’s a great start to the series and I am interested in reading the next book and hopefully getting some answers to all of my questions.

My Rating: 3.5 stars
