After reading the Maze Runner trilogy, it was really cool to see how that world came to be through the eyes of someone living through it. Although I didn't necessarily like Mark as much as I liked Thomas, it was really interesting to see his reactions to what was happening and his courage in the face of danger. The characters in The Kill Order are truly survivors - they did so much just to make it another day. To me, the best part was probably the epilogue. I was hoping that there would be more information about what happened with Deedee after she went through the flat trans, maybe if she ended up being part of the maze trials (I have a theory that she ends up being Teresa). Also, some of the stuff with Trina not remembering Mark and then all of a sudden remembering who he was as they were dying seemed odd to me. Overall, I really enjoyed the innovative end-of-world story that Dashner created throughout the Maze Runner trilogy, and it was great to see how it all started.
