  Booklist Review

The nonstop, gruesome action of the first two books in the Maze Runner trilogy helped distract from some tenuous plot logic and the complete stonewalling of crucial information. This grim conclusion finally addresses the truth behind WICKED the organization that basically subjects teen lab rats to torture and slaughter in order to map their brains for a cure to a worldwide virus that is turning people into psychopathic lunatics and does so with a fitting dose of moral ambiguity, while everything else kind of falls by the wayside. Readers who have stuck it out this far will need this bumpy, bloody finale.--Chipman, Ian Copyright 2010 Booklist
