Read The Kill Order PDF. bestselling Maze Runner series—The Kill Order is a modern classic for fans An e-reader loaded with books.
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. She is, therefore, more valuable to the population at the end of the novel. When faced with weakness, the stronger characters have to make difficult choices. Should they waste resources and energy trying to prop up those who cannot survive on their own? Should they carry on without them? When the group meets Deedee, they decide they have a moral obligation to care for the young girl who has been abandoned by her village.
They make the opposite decision, however, when they meet the houseful of neglected, starving children.
They realize that such a large group will slow them down and risk everyone's safety. It is for this same reason—their risked safety—that they abandon Misty when she contracts the Flare, and why Alec kills the Toad. Hero Comparison The Kill Order takes place when Thomas is only five years old, so Dashner had to cast a different hero to fight bad guys in the prequels. Mark is extremely similar to Thomas.

He's young, strong, loyal, curious, righteous, slightly naive, haunted by memories of his past, and in love with his best friend. Both heroes lack an immediate family—both their families are dead—and therefore create a makeshift family with other survivors. Both have seemingly supernatural strength and stamina.
Mark, for example, manages to survive back-to-back fights for days on end without food, water, or rest. He successfully fights off gangs of tactically trained soldiers with little more than his fists.
Both heroes feel compelled to do the right thing, no matter the cost, and they value protecting others over protecting themselves. Over the course of three novels, Thomas's character is given a chance to mature and develop enough complexity to keep his character engaging.
Mark, on the other hand, remains the exact same at the end of the novel as he was in the beginning. His character does not change as a result of his experiences. Thomas could be considered a dynamic hero while Mark is a static hero. Static characters are characters that do not undergo significant change. They are a typical component of plot action driven novels rather than character emotion driven novels. Religion—Jed In the wake of the sun flares, certain populations turn to spirituality for comfort and explanation to account for the bizarre events.
The most religious group is the "cult" that abandoned Deedee. Cults are defined as small groups of religious individuals whose practices may be regarded as strange or sinister by outsiders. They often blindly follow the word of a charismatic leader and share a common goal. The followers speak wildly about the "rain of demons from the sky" and the beauty of "nature and the spirits" while dancing maniacally around a fire.
Their bizarre behavior suggests the Flare has already started their descent into madness. This also suggests that cult, or perhaps even religious, beliefs are rooted in mental instability.
Jedidiah emerges as the leader, whom the followers kneel before as if in worship. Ade Teguh Ramadhan Lecturer: Irwan Sulistyanto, S. The kill Order Writter: The protagonist, Mark, is just waking up; the world he lives in is ravaged by heat because of the sun-flares. There is an older man in a cot near Mark—this man's name is Alec, and he is a hardened former soldier.
He is all business. Mark's been fighting for his life for more than a year now with Alec and others, including Lana and Trina. Since Mark is pretty comfortable with Alec by now, he figures he will throw a shoe at the old man for snoring so loudly.
That will teach him. Alec wakes up all grumbly and threatens but not very threateningly Mark, then gets dressed. We learn that at the time of the sun-flares Alec was a contract worker for the defense department.
Mark then goes to find Trina by a stream; she usually reads books by the stream in the morning. On his way to Trina, Mark passes tons of scrawny, dirty people who look like they are almost dead. It is obviously a rough time in the village he is living in—food is pretty scarce.
Mark reaches Trina and starts spying on her behind a tree. And from the narration, we can tell Mark has the hots for this girl. You know, on account of the, "Man, she was pretty. Trina hears Mark, so she knows he's there. She makes a joke about reading with a creepy guy watching her.
Mark then walks over to her and they hug aww , and he tells her: Er, that is probably not a good sign. Chapter 2 Trina makes a quip about how she has not had a perfect day since her sixteenth birthday party.
Then she adds the fact that three days later her and Mark were running for their lives through a hot tunnel. So we can imagine that was the day the sun-flares hit. Mark makes his own joke, saying how it took the world being pretty much wiped clean for her to finally notice him. Folks, that's probably not the best way to flirt with girls.
Mark instantly feels bad about the joke, especially because he struggles with the trauma of the sun flares. Memories often haunt him in his sleep. To break the awkwardness, Mark says that Alec and Lana probably have jobs for them to do, so they should get moving. They then set down the mountain and head for the village. When they reach the village, Lana approaches them.
She also worked in the defense department before the sun-flares; Alec was her boss. Lana talks about wanting to be back in a week; the group is planning a trip out into the wilderness to search for stuff.
Trina asks if they have seen Darnell, the Toad, or Misty—woo, three more characters! Just then, a boy with underwear on his head walks in. It is Darnell. Misty and the Toad walk in, and the Toad leaps up like a frog and snatches the underwear off of Darnell's head.
The Toad is small and stout, so the nickname fits perfectly. But he is also pretty darn muscular, so though everyone makes fun of him sometimes, they do it jokingly because they know he could beat the snot out of anyone. Turns out the underwear was the Toad's and he had not washed them in over two weeks. Everyone's laughing when suddenly a strange sound is heard—the sound of engines in the sky Chapter 3 The Toad announces that the sound is a Berg. Mark has not seen a Berg since the sun-flares happened.
Misty wonders if the Berg is there to rescue everyone, but Darnell seems doubtful. But this one does not have anything painted on it. The Berg then lowers and lands.
A ramp opens up and mist sprays from the gap. A huge crowd is now watching the Berg as it opens up. They have all been so desperate that this appearance could be the answer to their prayers. Finally, five people in green, rubbery suits walk out from the ramp—each one of them holding a black tube in their hands like a gun. Hmm, let us hope food sprays out of these tubes… Suddenly, they aim the tubes at the people, prompting Alec to freak out and push people to get them out of the way.
The people from the Berg start firing darts out of the tubes; one striking Darnell right in the shoulder. Moral of the story? If a stranger in a green suit points a large black tube at you, run.
Chapter 4 People are getting hit by darts left and right. Lana and Trina grab Darnell by the feet and try to move him away, while Mark tries to find cover for them. At this point, the Berg is shifting positions, and the people on it are getting better with their aim.
When they look up, they see Alec waving his hands from the Shack. He is holding two rifles with grappling hooks attached to big coils of rope. Oh boy, the old man has some kind of plan up his sleeve. Mark grabs a piece of wood for cover, and then sprints toward Alec.
They need to fight back. Chapter 5 Alec meets Mark halfway, and then pulls out an old pistol and hands it to him. Time for Mark to go James Bond on these green-suited meanies. The people in the Berg start to notice Alec and Mark scheming in the middle of the clearing, but Mark is already getting ready to shoot.
Mark shoots two quick shots with the hope of startling them; it works, and they recoil backwards. Mark then takes better aim, and he nails one of the people on the Berg.
The Kill Order
Target neutralized. His next shot hits one of the weapons the people on the Berg are holding. It falls, and a woman scoops it up from the ground, attempting to figure out how to use it to fight back. It is Alec's turn for action: He asks for the gun, and pretty soon he is shooting into the sky with his device pulling him up the rope. Alec climbs up the ramp as the people shooting on the Berg retreat inside; Alec then shouts at Mark to shoot the other grappling hook.
Mark hits the Berg, and just as he is about to press the green button the retractor button , the Berg rises up and yanks Mark up into the sky. Ugh, do not you just hate it when that happens?
In a flurry of shouting and engines roaring, Alec is yelling at Mark to press the green button, while the hatch door is closing. Mark can't get enough control to press it. Will Mark make it? Tune in after this commercial break to find out!
Chapter 6 Anyway, at this point, Mark is flying through the air getting smacked by the branches of trees. He is not having a perfect day, to say the least.
The Kill Order Themes & Motifs
He finally gets enough control to find the green button, but his fingers slip. Good grief. Luckily he does not get smushed by any trees, and he presses the button harder. He is yanked to Alec, and they both make it through the hatch just as the door closes. Inside it is dark and cool.
Mark imagines an army of people inside waiting for them, but Alec thinks otherwise.
The Kill Order
He guesses there is only one guy waiting for them, plus a pilot. A whirlwind of emotions overcomes Mark—he thinks about Darnell and how the boy is probably dead—but Alec snaps him out of it and tells him they need to get a door open.
They search for weapons, and to their surprise they find a sledgehammer. Alec starts whacking the door with it, each time making bigger and bigger dents. Meanwhile, Mark searches the room for anything useful. He finds a bunch of ominous boxes lying in the darkest corner of the room. He picks up one of the sealed boxes, and right on top of it is a biohazard symbol.
The label says: Hmm, probably not the best idea for Mark to pick the thing up. Chapter 7 After wiping his hands on his pants you know, the best way to rid yourself of poison , he finds a wrench on the wall. Well, he has a weapon now too. Alec is about one swing away from breaking the door open; the plan is to smash it open and then hide so that they are not blown to pieces right away.
Alec deals the final blow, and immediately three darts fly through the air as footsteps are heard running away. It is only one person, and he missed.
Not only was there only one person, but whoever it was ran out of bullets and left the weapon on the ground. Mark and Alec become the predators, chasing the man through the hallways of the Berg. But each door they find is locked.
Mark realizes that Alec used to be a pilot, so he's accustomed to being in Bergs. Ah, what a relief. The person they are pursuing, a man, yells something indecipherable, and then he disappears through a round hatch that looks like it leads into the cockpit.
Just as the man starts to pull the door closed, Alec throws the sledgehammer into the opening and blocks it from closing.
Mark then sprints into the cockpit and finds a woman frantically pressing buttons. He's then tackled from behind, but Alec whacks the man with the sledgehammer, sending him flying. Alec and Mark shout at the man and the pilot, asking them who they are and to take them back home. The woman does not say anything, and the man says they are just nobodies sent to do dirty work. Finally, the woman adds that they are just following orders with no emotion in her voice.
Suddenly the woman jams one of the levers downward and the Berg starts plummeting.
Mark bangs his head on the control panels, and an explosion is heard after a loud smash. While all of this is happening, something hard flies across the room and hits Mark in the head, causing him to black out.
Chapter 8 Similar to how Thomas has memory dreams in the first three books of The Maze Runner series, Mark has memory-dreams as well.
Except Mark's are pretty much exclusively nightmares. In this dream, Mark is on the subtrans so, the future-subway. He is pumped that a two-week school vacation is starting, and all he wants to do is hang out with Trina.Mark shoots two quick shots with the hope of startling them; it works, and they recoil backwards.
Either way, such moments were few and far between, and it felt good to laugh, as it did to see Trinas face light up. Teresa knew that shed be taking the trip herself tomorrow, with a note gripped in her hands. Its about time you got here! But Alec had a heart of gold. Alec yelled.
