Summary: The prequel to the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series.
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.
Review: This book was a prequel to the “Maze Runner” series by James Dashner. I was so excited to read the book because I really wanted to learn about how everything started! I wanted to know who was Thomas and what was his life like before “The Maze”. This book was not at all what I thought it would be. It gave me more questions and less answers! I can see where Dashner is going with it, but I wish he would make his point better. Overall, I didn’t feel like this book was imperative to the “Maze Runner” series.
