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. A prequel to the worldwide Maze Runner phenomenon, The Fever Code is the book that holds all the answers. How did WICKED find the Gladers? Who are Group B? 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.

This book is the second prequel to one of my favourite series, The Maze Runner. It had a lot of plot twists, especially at the end. I loved this book so much, and I definitely recommend reading The Maze Runner series because this is the last book.

I was into this book the second I flipped the first page. Everything that happened in the other four books of the "Maze Runner" series makes a lot more sense. With "The Fever Code," you can also see that WICKED has never changed their cruel and lying ways. There were a few changes from the other four books here and there, but overall, I enjoyed this book until the very last page.

I found this and The Death Cure extremely boring after reading the Maze runner series.
One of the good things about these two books though is that they clear up pretty much any confusion left over from the first three books. I would only recommend them if you wanted to know about The Flare and WICKED. As i said they're quite boring, but it's up to you...

This a book about how the maze, that you see in the other books, was first built and the role that Thomas and Theresa played in it's creation.

I really liked this book because it explained the purpose of the maze which gave insight to the rest of the story. I recommend that you read this book and hope that you will fall in love with the series like I did.

Intriguing, but a few plot holes, plus why do Thomas and Teresa act like they're 16 when they're only 10? Dashner needed to make them think and act younger than they did in the original trilogy.
WICKED is cruel, selfish, and opportunistic—it's kind of sad, actually :(

I am majorly disappointed, I found two plot holes, and I not yet done to book. James Dashner obviously didn't consult the other books while writing this. Alby was supposed to be the only survivor from the first group that enter's the maze, but in the Fever Code, Newt and Minho went with him. And in the other books, there was a flashback scene where Thomas and Teresa are triing to communicate threw there minds, but only Teresa can do it, then Thomas finally tell Teresa that she smells like pig. But in The Fever code, Thomas just learns how to do it while he is falling asleep. Therefor it is the worst book in the series.

I really enjoyed this book. It was the last book I read in the series and it explains all of the unanswered questions. (Spoiler alert) I did not like when Teresa died and so this books was good to get the last few moments of her personality. It is the least goriest book, and I enjoyed it. I would give it a 4 out of 5 stars

I agree with the previous comments that when you put this book in the storyline of the others it doesn't seem to hold up logically. How old were these kids when they were grabbed? How long was the maze running? The science of how they are supposedly mapping out the kids minds to find why the flare isn't impacting them seems very subjective - other than fear and adrenaline I am not really sure what the other emotions would be. I had really hoped for something more - even if it had to introduce a bunch of new characters to explain the background...instead this book falls pretty flat.

The world is in ruins. The forests are burned and the lakes are dried up. Disease has hit everyone. Then come WICKED who are looking for answers in unconventional ways. They find a boy who has helped build a maze to try and find a cure.
It was great to get to see how the maze trials come about and what all the kids were like before the maze. This book was great at explaining everything before and why what happens happened. It really helps give that needed background knowledge that helps you understand the others books. I really enjoyed getting to see what happened building up to the maze trials and loved how it ended right where the first starts. Rating 5 out of 5 stars.

This series has been a wild ride on the back of a griever, from start to finish. Here, in this prequel/last book of the series answers will be revealed as we learn what it must have really been like, to live in "captivity"/ safety. Thomas, formerly known as Stephen, lives in what the adults call "precaution" and absolute control, with his vitals taken daily like a lab rat. Meeting certain people, the other gladers, helped him change. But it is truly an ending to stomach, knowing everything that happened after and how betrayal cut up everything to shreds. So, why not take a trip down memory lane, and see what really happened?

Excellent! I really enjoyed the series, and this book was actually one of the best of the series. I think I'm going to reread the series again now that I know how it all began.
