Once there was a world’s end.
The forests burned, the lakes and rivers dried up, and the oceans swelled.
Then came a plague, and fever spread across the globe. Families died, violence reigned, and man killed man.
Next came WICKED, who were looking for an answer. And then they found the perfect boy.
The boy’s name was Thomas, and Thomas built a maze.
Now there are secrets.
There are lies.
And there are loyalties history could never have foreseen.
This is the story of that boy, Thomas, and how he built a maze that only he could tear down.
All will be revealed.

And what side are Thomas and Teresa really on? Lies will be exposed. Secrets will be uncovered. Loyalties will be proven. Fans will never see the truth coming. Before there was the Maze, there was The Fever Code.

    Yet another marvelous book by author James Dashner! This story takes place after The Kill Order. It tells of Thomas’s life before the Maze, and about his friends. You learn their backgrounds, and there are some very surprising twists in here! The end makes me upset, because someone betrays Thomas, or maybe 2 people betray him, I’m not exactly sure. But in The Death Cure, the very same person/people save Thomas! Anyways, this was an amazing book that is sure to satisfy your Maze Runner questions! Enjoy!
