I just discovered (and then promptly read) that James Dashner wrote a short flashback that occurred between The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure; “Thomas’s First Memory Of The Flare” (Maze Runner 2.5). When I say short I mean it, it’s only three pages long. But it’s a really good three pages! You can read Thomas’s First Memory Of The Flare online.
If you’re looking for something a little longer (50+ pages), “Thomas’s First Memory Of The Flare” is actually an excerpt from the mini ebook “The Maze Runner Files.” This eshort is filled with memos and emails from WICKED and suppressed memories from some of our favorite Gladers (Thomas, Frypan and Minho). While not earth-shattering, “The Maze Runner Files” is a great compliment to The Maze Runner series. It sheds some light on the start of WICKED and offers insight on the start of the Flare. The only issue I have is that James Dashner failed to include my baby angel prince Newt :(
If you are a fan of The Maze Runner series then I would definitely recommend this! It takes almost no time to read but gives you something to cling to until The Fever Code comes out next year!
