I run a blog with my best friend, Em - we love Young Adult literature.

The Death Cure - James Dashner The Death Cure is the final book in The Maze Runner series. Thomas, our main character, has been through so much in the first two books and now WICKED says that it's time to finally find the death cure. But Thomas doesn't trust them and I can't say that I blame him.

I spent the majority of this book in anticipation of finally knowing it all! Waiting, and waiting, and waiting. And while this book is about 97% action and 3% resolution, I was happy with it. Did it end the way I wanted it to? Not really, especially since I had SO MANY unanswered questions at the end, but I can see how some people would think that it was the "perfect" ending.

I will tell you that I was very impressed with the fact that there is no romance in this book (definitely hard to do these days in YA) and yet I still found myself enjoying it. My friend Anna has pointed out that there are hardly any cases of platonic relationships. But it looks like a book can be good without the swooning afterall!

I'd recommend this book to lovers of action and if you're looking for holiday gift for a guy, this is a winner!
