Publisher's Summary

When sun flares hit the Earth, intense heat, toxic radiation and flooding followed, wiping out much of the human race. Those who survived live in basic communities in the mountains, hunting for food.
For Mark and his friends, surviving is difficult, and then an enemy arrives, infecting people with a highly contagious virus. Thousands die, and the virus is spreading. Worse, it's mutating, and people are going crazy. It's up to Mark and his friends to find the enemy - and a cure - before the Flare infects them all.

If you like post apocalyptic adventures.. Get this

This was a great book to listen too on those long journeys back home. It was a really interesting take on how to survive only months after a global devastation. The relationships between the characters were very strong and you instantly felt a rapport with them, while contemplating what you would do in a similar situation.. Asking the big questions. This book was a great addition to the Maze Runner series and should be read/listened to by all.

dispensable

It was a waste of time and credit. I regret not having taken the advice of some reviewers on Audible.com: skip it, you'll miss nothing. It brings almost nothing new and it is quite slow.

Do not read this book after the others.

If you have read the first 3 published books before reading this one, it will be a let down sorry. This book simply didn't have the same appeal as the previous ones. The story was very slow to get started, the characters didn't draw you in and capture your attention. The author jumps around back and forward in the time line. I could accept it, IF this was the authors very first book. But after the other 3 were written very well ... This is a serious let down.

It made me really angry.

The Maze Runner series is very addictive, and this story made me cry out injustice! It is a fantastic roller coaster, though I would probably recommend reading this after the other books despite it being a prequel.
