WICKED has taken everything from Thomas: his life, his memories, and now his only friends—the Gladers. But it’s finally over. The trials are complete, after one final test.
Will anyone survive?
What WICKED doesn’t know is that Thomas remembers far more than they think. And it’s enough to prove that he can’t believe a word of what they say.

The time for lies is over.”

pooled ink Review:
I…hmm…look I’m not entirely sure how to put this into words at the moment but I just somehow can’t help but feel…not disappointed but…I don’t know, like he could have done something…better? Different? GAH! Emotions. The book was good, okay? It really was. And you get to once again explore new territory, people, and obstacles. But what sort of ruined it for me was the ending of this book/trilogy. And I’m not offering up any alternative solutions or ending at all because I honestly can’t really think of any at the moment (perhaps it all was just a bit too built up leaving the reality a tad flat?) but regardless the ending that was provided to this trilogy just seems…dissatisfying. Yes, perhaps that is what I am feeling. Dissatisfied. Still a good series overall though and worth the read if you’re into dystopian-esque sci-fi stories.
