The final installment of The Maze Runner movies is finally out. I loved these books! My friend Holly and I read them in college, thanks to the recommendation of my roommate Katie. They were so good! We were even talking like Gladers for weeks.
The Kill Order is another book that I really struggled to finish. I owned the book and I tried to read it 3 separate times, but the story was just ploddingly slow. Well, like Cinder, this book came up as an audiobook and I thought I could spend my time on this one.
The Kill Order is the history of the flares mentioned in The Maze Runner books. Mark and Trina were in the subway tunnels when the sun flares struck, wrecking the world they knew. Together, with a small band of new friends, they try to survive in the new, scorched world.
While with a group of villagers, a berg arrives and begins shooting people with darts. The darts contain a virus that kills the afflicted immediately. But the virus begins to mutate and spread, causing more problems for Mark and Trina, as well as those who unleashed it.
The Kill Order was slow and quite frankly boring. I didn’t care about most of the characters and the interaction between them felt forced. I was really reading it for the history of what happened and everything else in here felt like fluff.
I did shed a tear at the end, but that was as far as my connection went.
The Kill Order by James Dashner gets 2 stars.
