The Fever Code

We rated this book:


There once was a boy named Tom, who was put into a maze. However, before that, there was a boy named Stephen and a maze that needed to be created. In The Fever Code, James Dashner’s fifth installment of The Maze Runner series, readers learn how it all began. WICKED begins the story by “rescuing” children from their parents, who are becoming sick and turning into cranks and changing their names. When Stephen is rescued, he becomes Tom, a key element to WICKED and ultimately the hero of the series. The Fever Code also introduces us to characters that we will remember from previous books, such as Theresa, Alby, Chuck, Minho, and others. However, in this book we see how they were before they were inserted into the maze. Ultimately, The Fever Code shows us the first true glance of WICKED. WICKED is good. Right?

Dashner has outdone himself with The Fever Code. A prequel four books in the making, it answers questions and raises others that will keep readers hooked from beginning to end. While well-written in the first four books of The Maze Runner series, offering back stories to the characters allows readers to sympathize more with what they go through. If ever there was a prequel that would make readers want to go back and reread a series The Fever Code definitely tops the list. A 5 star young adult novel that should not be missed!
