Publisher's Summary

When sun flares hit the Earth, intense heat, toxic radiation and flooding followed, wiping out much of the human race. Those who survived live in basic communities in the mountains, hunting for food.

For Mark and his friends, surviving is difficult, and then an enemy arrives, infecting people with a highly contagious virus. Thousands die, and the virus is spreading. Worse, it's mutating, and people are going crazy. It's up to Mark and his friends to find the enemy - and a cure - before the Flare infects them all.

If you like post apocalyptic adventures.. Get this

This was a great book to listen too on those long journeys back home. It was a really interesting take on how to survive only months after a global devastation. The relationships between the characters were very strong and you instantly felt a rapport with them, while contemplating what you would do in a similar situation.. Asking the big questions. This book was a great addition to the Maze Runner series and should be read/listened to by all.

dispensable

It was a waste of time and credit. I regret not having taken the advice of some reviewers on Audible.com: skip it, you'll miss nothing. It brings almost nothing new and it is quite slow.

Now I understand

Would you consider the audio edition of The Kill Order to be better than the print version?

I have never read the print version and I most probably won't because I don't usually read a book after listening to it.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Kill Order?

Finding out how the kill order was issued

What about Mark Deakins’s performance did you like?

He brought the characters to life. After listening to him throughout the Maze Runner series I felt that he had a good grasp of the story line and characters.

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

Yes but I couldn't so I listened whenever I could.

Any additional comments?

I listened to this book after listening to the series, I didn't feel that I'd lost anything doing it in this order. Whether you listen to this book before or after the Maze Runner series I strongly recommend that you do listen /read this book.

Well read and a gripping story

Practically the book is very well read and Mark does a great job. The story is also really good and offers a fresh taste of the world of the Maze Runner. Really enjoyable.

Only read to finish the series wish I hadn’t bothered.

Hard to follow. Not entirely sure what happened and wish I’d not wasted the credit.
The first 3 although not overly well written had a good story too them. This I found wishy washy.

Enjoyable

Good prequel to the maze runner trilogy. Story hasn't quite got the same pull as the trilogy has but still a good overall.

Good though depressing!

Really well written and excellently read though somehow more depressing than the main trilogy. Still...worth a listen!

Do not read this book after the others.

If you have read the first 3 published books before reading this one, it will be a let down sorry. This book simply didn't have the same appeal as the previous ones. The story was very slow to get started, the characters didn't draw you in and capture your attention. The author jumps around back and forward in the time line. I could accept it, IF this was the authors very first book. But after the other 3 were written very well ... This is a serious let down.

It made me really angry.

The Maze Runner series is very addictive, and this story made me cry out injustice! It is a fantastic roller coaster, though I would probably recommend reading this after the other books despite it being a prequel.

Love it but am not ok

This shouldn’t be classified as a teen book I’m almost an adult and this series is amazing but messed up. This book had me crying on multiple occasions and straight up creeped out but I love it.

Here's to Part 4!

While I agree that this book takes on a bit of a different approach to the first 3, I personally enjoyed this one almost as much!
It's great to see a different perspective on the flare-affected world James Dashner has so effectively procured. Has certainly answered a few questions leftover from finishing the trilogy.

Not as good as the others in the series.

I love the rest in this series, but struggled to get through this one. Narration was good as always, the scenarios were a little lackluster.

Expecting great things but disappointed.

Story seemed to drag, was very repetitive. Just seemed to be a lot of running, fighting and getting attacked, needed more story in-between.
