Enjoy this chapter sampler from THE DEATH CURE by James Dashner. Published October 2011 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers, an imprint of Random House. Thomas knows that Wicked can't be trusted, but they say the time for lies is over, that they've collected all they can from the Trials and now must rely on the Gladers, with full memories restored, to help them with their ultimate mission. It's up to the Gladers to complete the blueprint for the cure to the Flare with a final voluntary test.
What Wicked doesn't know is that something's happened that no Trial or Variable could have foreseen. Thomas has remembered far more than they think. And he knows that he can't believe a word of what Wicked says.
The time for lies is over. But the truth is more dangerous than Thomas could ever imagine.
Will anyone survive the Death Cure?

CHAPTER 1
It was the smell that began to drive Thomas slightly mad.Not being alone for three weeks. Not the white walls, ceiling andfloor. Not the lack of windows or the fact that they never turned off the lights. None of that. They’d taken his watch; they fed him theexact same meal three times a day—slab of ham, mashed potatoes, rawcarrots, slice of bread, water—never spoke to him, never allowedanyone else in the room. No books, no movies, no games.Complete isolation. For over three weeks now, though he’d be-gun to doubt his tracking of time, which was based purely on instinct.He tried to best guess when night had fallen, made sure he only sleptwhat felt like normal hours. The meals helped, though they didn’tseem to come regularly. As if he was meant to feel disoriented.Alone. In a padded room devoid of color—the only exceptions asmall, almost-hidden stainless-steel toilet in the corner and an oldwooden desk that Thomas had no use for. Alone in an unbearablesilence, with unlimited time to think about the disease rooted insidehim. The Flare.None of this drove him crazy.But he stank, and for some reason that set his nerves on a sharpwire, cutting into the solid block of his sanity. They didn’t let himshower or bathe, hadn’t provided him with a change of clothes or anything to clean his body with since he’d arrived. A simple ragwould’ve helped; he could dip it in the water they gave him to drink
