Publisher's Summary

All your questions are answered in the fifth book in James Dashner's number one New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series. The story that fans all over the world have been waiting for - the story of how Thomas and WICKED built the Maze - is finally here. You do not want to miss it. 

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

Don't miss The Maze Runner, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and Maze Runner: The Death Cure, all now major motion pictures from 20th Century Fox, starring Dylan O'Brien, Kaya Scodelario, Thomas Brodie-Sangster, Rosa Salazar, Giancarlo Esposito, and Aidan Gillen. And look for James Dashner's new best-selling series the Mortality Doctrine: The Eye of Minds, The Rule of Thoughts, and The Game of Lives

Excellent insight into the Maze Runner series

Having seen both the Maze Runner and Scorch Trials movies, I wanted to delve deeper into the story. To anyone wanting to read the Maze Runner series, I suggest you start with this prequel. It offers interesting insights into the runners and also into the world and people that "created" them.

I enjoyed this book very much. Although the story did drag a bit from time to time, I found it a very easy listen aided by the pleasant narration of Mark Deakins.

A solid sequel/prequel

I have now read the entire maze runner collection and would say that The Fever Code is a great summation. If judged by itself it would be uninteresting but as it was meant to be read last I think it is a perfect cherry on top with easter eggs and homages galore for the dire hard fan.

What a great end!!!

I think this allowed us to see into the world before the maze, scorch trials, death cure! It was wonderfully and elaborately told just as the others books were and I'm only sad this is the final book! This is a must read for anyone who has enjoyed the others in this series!!! Happy listening!
