ffffff, we have to wait until August?
And yeah, people, this is a prequel. It's before The Maze Runner even took place. I don't know what other people thought, but this trilogy is one of the best I've read and I don't like this genre of book. I am thoroughly looking forward to this book. I do have high expectations for it, and I do think they'll be met.

So, starting to read this, I kind of said to myself "what do Mark and Trina have to do with everything else?" but I gave it a chance because I knew the author had an underlying plan here. So I read it.
And it was really effing good.
I can only assume that Deedee became Teresa, because of the epilogue. Apparently there's a version with an extra chapter? I'm not sure which that is, so I don't know what went on in it. If Deedee did in fact become Teresa, than it was nice to have this backstory. I liked all these characters a lot - even Misty, Darnell and the Toad. Even though we really didn't get too many glimpses at them, I was sad when they died. But the one character I really liked was Alec. When he had to vaporize Lana, my heart broke. When he flew the Berg away for good, even when he got sick, my heart broke even more. I get these weird emotional attachments to characters and Alec was one of them. And of course, those are the characters that die or something.
Anyway, I thought this prequel was great. I want to reread the whole series - they are one series I recommend to anyone and everyone who needs something to read, and this book didn't let me down.
Does anyone know if he's writing another one, or was this it?
