Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares seared the earth and mankind fell to disease. THE KILL ORDER tells the story of that fall.
Who else is ultimately excited for this release? Well WE ARE!!!! After zooming through the series, one thought came to mind, and that was what happened -before- WICKED and Thomas and the entire Maze, Scorch, and just EVERYTHING in general! Now there's also that curious thought sitting at the back of our minds......who will the protagonist be? Since Thomas is obviously either not born or a baby, he can't rejoin us in this story now can he. Therefore, we are obviously in for a great surprise from James Dashner!
