[Meme] Waiting On Wednesday: The Kill Order by James Dashner



Waiting On Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking The Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

I am SUPER excited about this book! Although it's release date isn't until August 14th (which is still way too far away for my liking) but EW shared a trailer and a teaser with the public so I started re-obsessing over it. So to get it out of my system I decided to share it all with you!

Title: The Kill Order
Author: James Dashner
Publisher: Random House Canada
Publication Date: August 14, 2012
The prequel to the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series.

Before WICKED was formed, before the Glade was built, before Thomas entered the Maze, sun flares hit the earth and mankind fell to disease.

Mark and Trina were there when it happened, and they survived. But surviving the sun flares was easy compared to what came next. Now a disease of rage and lunacy races across the eastern United States, and there’s something suspicious about its origin. Worse yet, it’s mutating, and all evidence suggests that it will bring humanity to its knees.

Mark and Trina are convinced there’s a way to save those left living from descending into madness. And they’re determined to find it—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.


You can read the first 34 pages on the EW site!

What book(s) are you waiting for right now?

  11. Bought the trilogy on a whim after reading the hunger games. It is amazing, I have so many questions I need answering! However I have all of the trilogy in paperback, I want this book in paperback but apparently (according to amazon) I'll have to wait until January? Any ideas if this info is correct or where to get it in paper back? Thanks x
