After finished the trio of books that comprise The Maze Runner trilogy by James Dashner, I quickly discovered – what?!? – there’s a fourth book! Titled “The Kill Order,” the book is a 2012-published prequel to the trilogy.
I recently stumbled upon an Internet list of ‘books to read before their movies come out.’ One of the books on that list was one that I’d had my eye on for some time, but didn’t ever push myself to check out: The Maze Runner by James Dashner.
With a little more investigating, you’ll quickly realize The Maze Runner is part of a trilogy by Dashner, a trilogy that also has a prequel now added to it. The Maze Runner is the first book in the trio, with The Scorch Trials and The Death Cure rounding out the three. The prequel – titled The Kill Order – is what I’m reading now, after having finished the trilogy.
How to describe this set of books: dystopian, science-fiction, young-adult, catching, enthralling and eye-catching. I’ll start off by giving you the basic premise of book one, but you should definitely check it out for yourself and then read the rest of the trilogy!
