The Death Cure Chapter Forty

By James Dashner

Chapter Forty

  • When the gang gets to the Central Zone again, the two guards they left outside are gone. Perfect.
  • But all the sudden, the guards come running back, yelling at everyone to run back to the Berg. A huge swarm of Cranks are on their heels.
  • Everyone makes a run for it, and they reach the Berg without anything bad happening.
  • Jorge gets the Berg in the air, and off they all go. The guards escaped, too, but they didn't board the Berg. No room for more main characters here, folks.
