See, the thing is, The Maze Runner was one of my favorite series ever… until the last book, which I hated. So the only reason I picked this book up was in hope that it would redeem the series for me and answer my bajillion questions. I think the thing that bothered me the most about this book was that it was not about I can describe this book to you in a single word: disappointment. I think the thing that bothered me the most about this book was that it was not about Thomas and the rest of the Gladers. You would think that it would be, right?
While traveling to find the attackers' base, Mark and Alec leave the group for a while to investigate a loud noise. They encounter a cult of infected people, who believe that since Deedee is not affected by the virus like they are, she must be some sort of demon.
Mark and Alec manage to escape from the cult but find that a forest fire has been started and that Trina, Lana, and Deedee are gone from their campsite. Believing that the three girls in their party must have escaped and gone ahead of them to the attackers base, Mark and Alec continue on to the site. They eavesdrop on a conversation and realize that the disease is widely known as "the Flare", caused by a virus that shuts down the thinking-part of people's brains.
They also learn that the girls were given back to the infected cult. They are caught eavesdropping but manage to escape and steal a Berg. Mark and Alec find weapons inside the Berg called transvices — guns that evaporate people's molecules.
They recharge one to use to battle the infected. Mark realizes that the Flare has started to affect his mind. Their journey inside the Berg takes them near Asheville, where they find Lana suffering badly from torture by the infected; to end her suffering Alec must kill her with the transvice.
They find Trina and Deedee at an old house, but Mark realizes that Trina also has the Flare and has forgotten him. They are attacked by the infected, but manage to escape to the Berg.
As Mark starts to lose his sanity, he recognizes that Deedee is truly immune to the virus and should be sent to the safety of the PFC base in Alaska. Mark plans on delivering Deedee using a teleporter called a flat trans inside a PFC base in the safe part of Asheville.
As they travel, they find that Alec is also dying from the Flare. Mark orders Alec to crash the Berg into the flat trans building to prevent the infected from escaping Asheville.
Trina remembers Mark and they kiss just as the Berg crashes, killing everyone in the base. They rename him Thomas. Characters[ edit ] Mark: A year-old young man who survived the onslaught of the Flare and finds himself living with his neighbor Trina and war veterans Alec and Lana, along with a few others in the Appalachians.
After a Berg releases the Flare virus that kills everyone but the four, Mark embarks on a journey to take revenge against those who ordered the execution. Alec: A war veteran who came to rescue Mark and Trina shortly before a giant tsunami caused by the melting polar ice caps hit New York City.
He and Lana have since become the two teenagers' companions since a year before the novel begins. Trina: Mark's neighbor and love interest who was with him when the Flare first hit the Earth and has since lived together with other survivors in a small village in the Appalachians. Lana: A war nurse who has a close relationship with Alec. The two accompany Mark and Trina ever since the onslaught of the Flare and the immediate tsunami that devastated New York City.
She is the first of the four to succumb to the Flare virus.
She is immune to the Flare virus, a status which is demonized by her fellow villagers. A grown Teresa is also shown in the prologue of the novel, where she becomes a witness to Thomas being delivered to the Maze. The Death Cure , will hit screens in The… More about James Dashner. Read An Excerpt.

They must fight their way through crowds of Cranks both in the city and in the shack where their friends are being held. A group of Cranks pulls Lana from the shack and begins brutally stabbing her.
Realizing he cannot save her, Alec shoots Lana with the Transvice to put her out of her misery. They burst into the shack and continue to fight ruthlessly against the swarming Cranks. They manage to extricate Deedee and Trina from the wild Cranks and drag them back to the Berg. Alec, Trina, and Mark all suffer from clear signs of the Flare, but Deedee remains healthy. They realize she must be immune to the disease, and she could benefit humanity as the Flare spreads out of control.
They know she must reach the Flat Trans to survive. With the little energy they have left, Alec pilots the Berg to the location of the Flat Trans. Mark quickly scribbles a note alerting the government workers on the other side to Deedee's immunity.
They shove Deedee through the Flat Trans and Alec crashes the Berg into it, destroying it so no one else can reach her. Alec, Marc, and Trina die in the crash. Readers realize what it was like for characters that experienced the first apocalyptic events. An apocalyptic event is an event that causes catastrophic damage to the world.
Postapocalyptic novels, like those in The Maze Runner series, take place after the end of the world.
It is a time when the few remaining people must figure out how to survive. In the world of the novel, sun flares cause the atmosphere to heat up rapidly. It becomes so warm, in fact, that trees and plants die, the Earth cracks, and people's skin melts off their faces. The polar caps immediately melt, causing a massive tsunami that wipes out New York City. Mark and Trina survive the sun flares because they're underground, and they manage to seek higher ground in the Lincoln Building to avoid rising waters.
The apocalyptic events in The Kill Order parallel what many experts say will happen to our world if climate change isn't controlled. As temperatures rise, deserts expand and polar ice caps melt, causing rising sea levels, flooding, and natural disasters. The landscape described in the novel mirrors the postapocalyptic landscapes in popular movies like Mad Max and The Day After Tomorrow. Population Control After the sun flares cause catastrophic damage to Earth, the government realizes there aren't enough resources left to ensure survival of the entire population.
They decide to enact population control by spreading the Flare, a virus they believe to be quick acting and painless. They don't take mutation into account, however, and the virus eventually threatens the entire population. WICKED's method of population control, simply shooting people at random, seems offhand and misguided, but not completely out of the realm of possibility. Many governments throughout history have implemented policies for population control. These controls include the one-child policy in China from — Families in mostly urban areas were forbidden to have more than one child, preventing an estimated ,, births.
Another example of forced population control was the alleged government secret sterilizations of tens of thousands of women in Uzbekistan starting in Countries with declining populations, on the other hand, have offered tax incentives and cash payments to families after the birth of their children.
Regardless of whether a government meddles in increasing or decreasing the population, The Kill Order makes clear the moral ambiguities of a government deciding which of their population should live or die.
Survival of the Fittest When faced with limited resources and a seemingly endless parade of enemies, only the fittest could've survived the sun flares. Only they would also have the strength and stamina to survive the settlements. For many luck is involved in survival, as with Mark and Trina who happened to be underground when the sun flares struck.
They happened to partner up with a man who could lead them to the Lincoln Building. For others survival is a constant test of their strength and knowledge. Alec and Lana are well-trained ex-soldiers. Despite being out of their physical prime, they have no trouble overpowering attackers, foraging for food, and reading complicated maps. Deedee, whose superior physicality has rendered her immune to the Flare virus, also proves to be fitter and stronger than the rest.
