The prequel to the New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series. Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the Earth, and mankind fell to disease. Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next.

Publisher's Summary

The prequel to the New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series.

Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the Earth, and mankind fell to disease.

Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next.

Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there's something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it's mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.

Mark and Trina are convinced there's a way to save those left living from descending into madness. And they're determined to find it - if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some, you're worth more dead than alive.

    "Waste of time"
    What was most disappointing about James Dashner’s story?

    There are no answers. Nothing is ever fully explained. It was like being on a treadmill going full speed that never slows down. Everything became numb after a while. It was like listening to the same story over and over and over again.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't waste your time. Seriously you don't learn anything new and there are no cool or interesting stories or facts that relate the rest of the series that make it worth the read.

    "Worth it, but the weakest in the series"

    I loved this series and so the Pre-quel was a "must listen" for me. I don't regret listening at all and it was entertaining. But, I found the other books more interesting and more rich. Perhaps knowing where it is all going takes away the punch though. Overall, I do recommend this to fans, but don't listen to it first. Maybe its for "fans only".

    Too many.

    No. Not that I know of,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I've read the whole series and I needed to know the begining.

    "Very Intriguing, definitely a great ending for the"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, a bit boring at the start but it gets better as you move forward.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Story was exciting, filled of action.


    What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The change of voices, and the way his voice would express the situation. I love it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end. (can't say why....)

    What did you love best about The Kill Order?

    I enjoyed learning how it all started. I liked the new characters too.

    It was a little more violent than the other books but well worth the read.

    "Love this series!"
    Where does The Kill Order rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I'd put this toward the top of my list.... Full of action and character development. A great addition to the Thomas and Theresa saga.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Mark and Alec were so different yet still easy to identify with for different reasons... Great prequel characters.


    What about Mark Deakins’s performance did you like?

    Great ability to define the characters vocally.
