The best prequel to the Maze Runner book itself. This one is a must read LAST in the entire series... otherwise it will spoil everything.

I had a feeling that Teressa wasn't all she was cracked out to be, and this book proves just what all happened. You truly understand why Thomas went back and forth with whether he should trust her or not.

All I have to say is if you haven't read these books, you should!... just not if you're easily frightened. Why they aren't horror books, the Cranks and such can get a little creepy.

But, they are perfect books to read if you're looking for something after: The hunger games, Harry Potter, or the Divergent series!

This is an amazing book. I mean, I don’t really know what to say. I’m so satisfied after reading the whole series.

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.
