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.

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!

Enjoyed the book - wasn't sure about narrator

What made the experience of listening to The Kill Order the most enjoyable?

It was nice to have to book read as the films are so different and miss too much out

Who was your favorite character and why?

Love all characters

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

It's nice for me as I have epilepsy and if I'm recovering from seizures I can't read as vision impaired. That's why I like audible but wasn't sure about narrator and never bonded with his voice

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

Too long but did long sittings

Surprisingly good!

I read and really enjoyed the Maze Runner trilogy, saw this and thought it would be another weak precall just milking a franchise. I actually decided not to read it but forgot to remove it from my wish list. I by mistake downloaded it when buying a few other titles. As a number of titles where downloading at the same time, this just happened to be the only one ready to listen when I got on the bus. I'm glad, it is awesome!! Better than the Mase Runner trilogy but definately not a stand alone book. Having read the trilogy makes this book all the better. It is more emotive than I expected.
