The Kill Order - by James Dashner
"It's filled with action and lots of death, all the things that make a good thriller."
The Kill Order by James Dashner is a prequel to the Maze Runner series. It follows a motley crew of strangers united by the recent solar flares. The world is rebuilding itself, but the human population is too great, and resources are low, so the remnants of the government attempt to control the population with a virus, but they quickly lose control when the virus mutates.
I loved this book. It's filled with action and lots of death, all the things that make a good thriller. Plus, it answers questions you might've had about the later books. This book is perfect for anyone who liked the Maze Runner series, or is a fan of Dystopian novels. You probably would want to read this after you read the rest of the series, even though it's technically a prequel.
