Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth and mankind fell to disease.
Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next.
Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there’s something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it’s mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.
Mark and Trina are convinced there’s a way to save those left living from descending into madness. And they’re determined to find it—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some, you’re worth more dead than alive.
My Rating: 3/5
I received this book for review from Chicken House for Scholastic Australia.
It feels like forever since I read The Maze Runner. In fact that was only the 9th book review I posted on this blog.
Apart from the epilogue, I didn't really feel any connection with The Maze Runner at all. I liked Mark's story and battle against losing his mind though.
I liked the extensive background in terms of world building and the whole history of the sun flares and viruses.
I am definitely looking forward to reading the rest of the series and can't believe I haven't done so yet.
