Book four in the blockbuster Maze Runner series that spawned a movie franchise and ushered in a worldwide phenomenon! And don’t miss The Fever Code, the highly-anticipated series conclusion that finally reveals the story of how the maze was built!
Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth, killing most of the population.
Mark and Trina were there when it happened. They survived. But now a virus is spreading. A virus that fills humans with murderous rage.
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.
The Maze Runner, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, and Maze Runner: The Death Cure are all now major motion pictures featuring the star of MTV's Teen Wolf, Dylan O’Brien; Kaya Scodelario; Aml Ameen; Will Poulter; and Thomas Brodie-Sangster.
Also look for James Dashner’s edge-of-your-seat MORTALITY DOCTRINE series!

Why do I only have part 2 instead of part 1
Overall, the book is good but for some reason I only have part 1 and part 2 is gone.
Worst of the Series...
I really enjoyed the Maze Runner series, but The Kill Order prequel was just frustrating to read. In lieu of actual plot development, they just kept have a series of improbable, annoyingly long, pot-boiler type fight scenes where the "hero" kept making the same mind-numbingly stupid mistakes over and over and over and over and over again. For example, I think after you've killed your hundredth person, your probably well past the phase where you hesitate on seeing an adversary that you knew was there anyway. And when you have the means to easily kill them from afar, you don't go hand to hand with them. My God… This kept happening over and over again. It was maddening to see a plot so stupid and vapid from a book series that was actually very interesting in the first three books.
