There's jut something about James Dashner's writing that sucks you in and doesn't let up until that last page is read. The Kill Order was no different. There's a lot of fast-paced action with a similar purpose as The Maze Runner, survival. Before the Gladers ever came to be, there was Mark. He was there when the sun flares dropped from the sky burning everything in sight, including human flesh. As gruesome as that sounds, there were a lot of scenes which were too horrible to picture. I don't want to spoil it, but once you read these parts, you'll know what I'm talking about.

Apart from the gruesome scenes, the plot moves fast. Mark tries to find out the truth behind the people who shot his villag with a virus, rescuing his best friend, and most importantly, trying to stay sane when the virus starts to claim him. His battle between his normal conscious self, to the violent crazy self was intense. You can tell it takes a toll on him but he's strong enough to fight it.

The description says a lot about Trina, his best friend, but she was hardly in the story to begin with. The romance was cute, not too cheesy and too winded. There was a lot going on so I'm glad it wasn't the main focus.

The viewpoints change from the past to the present. It bothered me a tiny bit, just because there was such a break in the story. I would rather have liked it better if it was one continuous storyline. It would have flowed better in my opinion.

James Dashner has done it again, and I can't wait what else he has in store for us.
