The Prequel to James Dashner’s Maze Runner series
Storyline: Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth, killing most of the population. Mark and Trina were there when it happened. They survived. But now a virus is spreading. A virus that fills humans with murderous rage. They’re convinced that there’s a way to save those who are left—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. The end is only the beginning.
I don’t think a 300 page book has ever felt this long before… it’s my own fault, I should have known that it’d be hard to read after the last three. Don’t get me wrong it actually surprisingly only took me two days to read and the writing and wording is actually fantastic! He’s a heck of a writer, he’s just a crappy storyteller. The lack of plot direction continues. Everything that was attempted to be explained seemed jumbled and pointless. Theres so many pointless fight scenes and fake danger, which bored the living daylights out of me! Also Ive come to realize I hate ‘many years ago’ type of prequels, if I wanted to learn a whole new group of people’s names I’d start a different series. I don’t know who any of these people were and I honestly didn’t even really care, I had no attachment to their characters either and they were all just meh. I’m just happy I’m done with this series. I was so disappointed… why did I think I loved this series? I’m so confused with myself… in conclusion, no I wouldn’t recommend this series.
I rate this book
