Présentation de l'éditeur

Read the fourth book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, perfect for fans of The Hunger Games and Divergent. The first book, The Maze Runner, is now a major motion picture featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster and the second book, The Scorch Trials, will soon be a movie that hits theaters September 18, 2015! Also look for James Dashner’s newest novels, The Eye of Minds and The Rule of Thoughts, the first two books in the Mortality Doctrine series.
They thought the end came in a flash.
Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth, killing most of the population.
The worst is yet to come.
Mark and Trina were there when it happened. They survived. But now a virus is spreading. A virus that fills humans with murderous rage.
There is no cure. No escape.
They’re convinced that there’s a way to save those who are left—if they can stay alive. Because in this new, devastated world, every life has a price. And to some you’re worth more dead than alive.
The end is only the beginning.

As a prequel to The maze runner sequel, The kill order is good side story that happens just after the catastrophe the led to the maze. It shoold be read after The maze runner and not before.

Although I enjoyed reading this book, I think it is not quite as good as Maze Runner, which is absolutely brilliant. The plot is rather messy and even though it is sort of science fiction, I just couldn't "believe" the story of The Kill Order. Whereas I had no problem with the plot of Maze Runner.
Anyone reading Kill Order without having read Maze Runner will be *completely* lost, in my opinion.

Great prequel to The Maze Runner series 14 août 2012
Par Amanda Welling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
First Impressions: I loved The Maze Runner series so much that I wanted to really love this book. I have a fascination with wanting to know what happens before I find myself in a story, and I love that Dashner has created a world that existed before the first pages of The Maze Runner were penned. I wanted to know more about the sickness infecting the world, the darkness that had enveloped a crazed planet. Well written as always, the opening pages of this book seemed like they were going to answer a lot of my questions. But, it didn't. I will go into that more later.

First 50 Pages: Besides the brief prologue, there is not too much that is familiar about The Kill Order. You are introduced to a new group of characters fighting a completely different battle. What this book does well, and instantly, is set up the post solar flare world. Everything changes on earth when a solar flare hits and nearly destroys everything. What is left are small settlements and resilient people. That is, until the ships come from the sky and reign a new kind of terror on the flare survivors. Instead of being their salvation, the giant ships sends Mark, Alec, Trina and Lana on a new, horrifying journey.

Characters & Plot: At first, I was a little disappointed that more of the story was not going to be dedicated to the characters I had met in the Maze Runner series. I wanted to know more of their story, for sure. But, Dashner created a whole group of characters that are tough, hardened and yet somehow still vulnerable. Mark, the main character, goes through every emotion possible in the pages of this story. He is hopeful, playful, angry, lost, scared and brave all at once. Alec is a strong support, leader and guide as they try and find their friends and, in the process, discover the dark truth of the disease that is wiping out people and making them go mad.

The story is dark, violent and more than a little disturbing. I found myself repulsed and disgusted on more than one occasion, that's for sure. There is a lot of exposition in this one, and a lot of major battles with people who do not really understand what has happened to them. Overall, the plot is well done from beginning to end, but I was shocked at just how dark and violent it really was!

Final Thoughts: This was not the book I expected it to be. I guess I don't really know what I was expecting. I think I was thinking this would be more of an immediate prequel to the Maze Runner series, but instead it takes a pretty big step back in time and talks a lot more about the origins of the disease flare and the solar flare that nearly destroyed the world. The Kill Order is a really good book, and fits the world of the rest of the series well. I do wonder, however, how new readers to the series will take to this book, especially if they read this as the first book in the series instead of a new part of the story after reading the rest of the books. I would recommend it, although not while eating because it's definitely violent!

Review of The Kill Order 14 août 2012
Par Lydia - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
Having just put down The Death Cure, I turned quickly to The Kill Order with the anticipation of getting some answers making my knee shake with excitement. The first pages sent a thrill to me as I saw those few minutes before Thomas was sent up into The Glade ... but then the story took a journey to a place 13 years before.

This new story with new people (Alec, Mark, Trina, and others) was something very familiar to me. Flashing back and forth from this new present to their past, James Dashner does what he does best: writes a racing, thrilling story and slowly placates his reader with tiny bits of information as he does so. And it was easy to like both Mark and Alec, so I gave in to enjoy the ride.

While it was frustrating to not get the history and understand more of certain elements of The Maze Runner trilogy (sorry if that's a spoiler folks - but I know a lot of people out there were very frustrated about knowing things), it was helpful to understand what Dashner did disclose and it pieced together a lot of pieces for me that were left undone by the ending of The Death Cure. Am I completely satisfied with what was given to me? No. And I honestly don't know if there will ever be answers given to us or if Dashner will continue to string us along. But I did enjoy a riveting, full-blown prequel that set up a world that was a place of complete confusion to me.

Ugh James Dashner 19 octobre 2012
Par sarah - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
WARNING: Some spoilers here from the trilogy and a few details from this book too:

Just read The Kill Order and I totally agree that the violence/fighting was a bit over the top. I've read other reviews that call it "real" and "honest" but, I struggle to understand the "real and honest" physiology that enables an under-nourished kid and old man on the brink of exhaustion to keep fighting and functioning the way Mark and Alec do after they get their behinds kicked all over the place time and time again. I think I'd probably be dead after fight number one. That said, I've never been in a fight so, I guess I don't know. Maybe I would keep going like a zombified Energizer bunny after having my vital organs crushed by repeated punches and kicks, my limbs smashed in doors and pulled out of socket after hanging on to an aircraft in mid flight, and my head consistently bashed in by pieces of metal and other blunt objects. I have a student who missed three days of school because he got a concussion heading a soccer ball. He still can't look at a computer screen nevermind get into an all out death match fight with a gaggle of cranked out zombies. He would never survive in dystopia.

My having never been in a physical altercation of any kind had another downside as I read The Kill Order. I had a super hard time visualizing what was happening in the fight scenes. I couldn't always figure out whose fist was hitting what and which body parts were swinging around to where. There was one scene where someone hit Mark who I was sure had already been killed. It was all pretty much a gory, violent blur that I skimmed through until I got to the part where someone died, passed out, or ran away.

I was also left really unsatisfied with the account of what happened in the year after the flare; I wanted more details about how they made it to Ashville and what everyone elses' story was. How did so many people survive and how did they make it to the camps? The Thomas and Teresa part seemed confusing too. Why did Dashner bother including the tidbits he did about them (assuming that's who the epilogue was about . . .) I have a theory about who Deedee is but, then again who cares if we don't get a sequel/prequel to Kill Order.

And lastly, I guess I am just a little confused about the Kill Order itself. Why did the Post Flare Coalition decide it was necessary? It seemed to me like folks were just sort of plugging along in small settlements, eating food they found in old factories, hunting, keeping cool in the shade and mud huts or whatever. Were there really soooo many people in those little settlements being self-reliant and not bothering anyone else that Earth's resources were being depleted? By the sounds of it, New York City was pretty well wiped out. That's like 10 million people GONE right there! Where are all of these resource depleters and what resources were they depleting? I didn't even realize any of the settlements knew about the other settlements near-by. Why didn't they have socials or dances with each other or something fun!? Dashner made it sound like Mark's peeps were there all alone, but according to the Post Flare folks, there were tons of settlements all over Appalachia and the world?! I'm just not sure I buy that . . .

All in all, I liked The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials ok. I tolerated the Death Cure because it was the last in the series and I was totally underwhelmed there. I probably just should have moved right on past this one but, it just looked so good and I really did wonder about WICKED and was always confused about what the pre-teen darlings T & T actually did before they got old and went into the maze. But Kill Order was sort of lame. If you love gore and fight scenes, enjoy obsessing about what supplies you may want to stock up on or skills you'd like to hone before the apocalypse, or if you're a gambler and are betting that Dashner is going to write a pre-prequel or sequel prequel or whatever and actually answer some of the questions you had after reading the Maze Runner books or answer all of the new ones that popped up after Kill Order, than this book's for you.

Don't read this -- it's nothing but pointless violence and gore 2 mars 2014
Par Sir Readalot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
(I read this book for free from the library.)

Full disclosure: I'm not really a fan of prequels. It's very tricky to create suspense and peril in a story the reader already knows. Some prequels have been very good but most are not. This book falls into the "not good" category.

I read the other three books in this series with increasing distaste. The first one was just good, not great, but I felt like the series went downhill with each step. It became more and more violent and gory while never providing any explanations about what was going on. It's hard to enjoy long stories about kids being killed with no justifications. This book took that feeling to an extreme.

I read this book because I hoped it would (FINALLY) provide an explanation of the events in the other three books. The mystery in those books revolved around Thomas' memories being erased. This book is set before that happened, surely it will explain everything, right? In the other three books, there are many hints that Thomas and Theresa helped design the maze and the trials, that they were willing participants and that they were even in charge at one point. Since this is a prequel, surely we'll get to see all that, right? No.

This book starts in a small settlement in the mountains. Thomas and Theresa are nowhere to be seen. Solar flares have fried most of the planet's surface and the survivors are huddled into camps, scratching out a meager existence. Suddenly a flying ship comes by and shoots everyone with darts, injecting them with a deadly virus. The two main characters manage to fight back and take down the ship. Neither of them were hit with darts, but the virus is highly contagious. The chances of them being uninfected are basically zero (and they know it).

Just like the other three books, what follows is a survival story. Hiking through the woods, killing people, running through a town, killing people, storming an underground bunker, killing people. Lots and lots of killing. Lots and lots of gory details. Many long-winded descriptions of fist fights and brutal beatings.

Through the whole thing, I just didn't care about any of the characters. They're definitely infected and they know it, so they're definitely going to die. The only mystery is whether they'll die from being eaten by zombies or whether they'll become zombies. I just couldn't care less.

What I really wanted to know, as I did all through the previous three books, was WHY all this was happening. Who were the guys shooting the virus-laden darts? Who told them to do it? Why were they doing it? Why? Why? Why? As before, no explanations are given. What about all the stuff with the maze? Nothing. Where are Thomas and Theresa? We never see them except in the prologue and epilogue, so there's no real connection to the other books. Without those two chapters, this book would be a completely separate story from the Maze Runner series. Just another post-apocalypse zombie story.

If you like zombies, there are better books out there than this one. If you like solar flares, check out "Sunstorm" by Arthur C. Clarke. That's all this book has and it's not worth your time.

Don't spend money on this Prequel! 3 août 2014
Par Kanaka Review - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Maze Runner was by far the best book out of the entire series. The following books went into darker territory that wasn't what I expected but still they were ok. I had high hopes for this prequel to answer questions and give us a look into the world that led up to Maze Runner. But it took forever for me to get through the book because it was very slow until the middle of the book. Then it made no real and concrete connection between the group we were following through the entire book to Thomas who was only mentioned at the beginning of the book and in the epilogue. When I finally finished the book, I was just perplexed to what this added to the series at all? It was a disappointing book from start to finish.

I recommend that you save your money and skip this prequel that does not enhance the series whatsoever.
