The Story
The Kill Order (The Maze Runner Prequel)—Book Review

A year ago, Trina and Mark survived the sun flares--the worst natural disaster known to mankind. But what came after was even worse: tsunami, solar radiation, drought, incessant heat, and pure anarchy. Together, they battled through one life-threatening obstacle after another. Just when they dare to hope that everything is going to be okay, their settlement is attacked by strangers wielding virus-infected darts. Now they must escape this madness-inducing deadly disease. Along the way they find evidence that there may be a cure. But will they be able to reach those who unleashed the virus before they cross the boundary into madness themselves?
The Scoop
The Kill Order (The Maze Runner Prequel)—Book Review
{spoiler alert}

This suspenseful prequel to the popular Maze Runner trilogy will delight its fans. Short chapters with mini cliffhangers and the promise of questions answered will quickly propel the reader through the story. Mark, Trina, and their friends have survived countless horrors following the sun flares and have become a fiercely loyal team determined to protect one another. The plot raises ethical issues as the acting government determines that the risk of human extinction in a world with limited resources warrants decreasing the population. The virus selected for this purpose (known as the Flare in the trilogy) mutates, having the unintentional effect mass suffering. Descriptions of the madness caused by this deadly mutating virus and the resulting atrocities performed by the infected can be disturbing, and dear friends who are infected have to be put out of their misery. Language is quite mild and infrequent (d-mn, h-ll, cr-p).
