Lana: A war nurse who has a close relationship with Alec. The two accompany Mark and Trina ever since the onslaught of the Flare and the immediate tsunami that devastated New York City. She is the first of the four to succumb to the Flare virus. She is immune to the Flare virus, a status which is demonized by her fellow villagers.

He also tells them that he and his coworkers plan to move to the PFC base in Alaska , which gives Mark idea to send Deedee there. Bruce: A worker for the PFC who had a hand in releasing the Flare virus in return for food for him and his coworkers.
He complains about the restrictions put into the cure for the virus by the PFC base in Alaska. Jed: A bald and earless man who is part of the villagers of Deedee's village.
He prevents Mark and Alec from being killed and recounts to them about the Flare virus which destroyed his village two months and three days before. He subsequently dies due to the virus. Darnell is the first casualty of the Flare virus released by a Berg to their village. Misty is found to be infected just after Mark and Alec return from hijacking the Berg. After Toad puts at end to her misery, he is infected too and Alec kills him out of mercy.
Baxter: A year-old boy who was part of the original group of survivors who survived the tsunami that hit New York City, alongside Mark, Trina, Alec, and Lana. When they camped out at the Lincoln Building , Baxter was killed by a man called Boss.
He only appears in flashbacks. After killing Baxter, he threatened them to give him supplies. Mark managed to kick him off to the waters and took control of his vehicle. His female companion then committed suicide. He is mentioned in a letter found by Mark in Randall Spilker's workpad.
They are only mentioned in correspondence letters found by Mark in Spilker's workpad. Katie McVoy: A member of WICKED who suggested to chancellor Michael a form of population control by killing half of the population with the VCxb47 virus, referred to as the Flare virus; thus, she is indirectly responsible for most of the events in the series.
She is only mentioned in a letter in Randall Spilker's workpad found by Mark. A grown Thomas is also mentioned in the prologue of the novel from the point of view of Teresa, just before he takes his entry to the Maze. Reception[ edit ] Critical reception for The Kill Order was mostly positive. LC Online Catalog. Library of Congress lccn.
Retrieved Population Control After the sun flares cause catastrophic damage to Earth, the government realizes there aren't enough resources left to ensure survival of the entire population. They decide to enact population control by spreading the Flare, a virus they believe to be quick acting and painless. They don't take mutation into account, however, and the virus eventually threatens the entire population.
WICKED's method of population control, simply shooting people at random, seems offhand and misguided, but not completely out of the realm of possibility. Many governments throughout history have implemented policies for population control. These controls include the one-child policy in China from — Families in mostly urban areas were forbidden to have more than one child, preventing an estimated ,, births.
Another example of forced population control was the alleged government secret sterilizations of tens of thousands of women in Uzbekistan starting in Countries with declining populations, on the other hand, have offered tax incentives and cash payments to families after the birth of their children. Regardless of whether a government meddles in increasing or decreasing the population, The Kill Order makes clear the moral ambiguities of a government deciding which of their population should live or die.
Survival of the Fittest When faced with limited resources and a seemingly endless parade of enemies, only the fittest could've survived the sun flares. Only they would also have the strength and stamina to survive the settlements. For many luck is involved in survival, as with Mark and Trina who happened to be underground when the sun flares struck.
They happened to partner up with a man who could lead them to the Lincoln Building.
About the Title
For others survival is a constant test of their strength and knowledge. Alec and Lana are well-trained ex-soldiers. Despite being out of their physical prime, they have no trouble overpowering attackers, foraging for food, and reading complicated maps. Deedee, whose superior physicality has rendered her immune to the Flare virus, also proves to be fitter and stronger than the rest.
She is, therefore, more valuable to the population at the end of the novel. When faced with weakness, the stronger characters have to make difficult choices. Should they waste resources and energy trying to prop up those who cannot survive on their own?
Should they carry on without them? When the group meets Deedee, they decide they have a moral obligation to care for the young girl who has been abandoned by her village. They make the opposite decision, however, when they meet the houseful of neglected, starving children. They realize that such a large group will slow them down and risk everyone's safety.
It is for this same reason—their risked safety—that they abandon Misty when she contracts the Flare, and why Alec kills the Toad. Hero Comparison The Kill Order takes place when Thomas is only five years old, so Dashner had to cast a different hero to fight bad guys in the prequels. Mark is extremely similar to Thomas. He's young, strong, loyal, curious, righteous, slightly naive, haunted by memories of his past, and in love with his best friend.
Both heroes lack an immediate family—both their families are dead—and therefore create a makeshift family with other survivors. Both have seemingly supernatural strength and stamina. Mark, for example, manages to survive back-to-back fights for days on end without food, water, or rest.
He successfully fights off gangs of tactically trained soldiers with little more than his fists. Both heroes feel compelled to do the right thing, no matter the cost, and they value protecting others over protecting themselves.
Over the course of three novels, Thomas's character is given a chance to mature and develop enough complexity to keep his character engaging.
Mark, on the other hand, remains the exact same at the end of the novel as he was in the beginning. His character does not change as a result of his experiences. Thomas could be considered a dynamic hero while Mark is a static hero. Static characters are characters that do not undergo significant change. They are a typical component of plot action driven novels rather than character emotion driven novels. Religion—Jed In the wake of the sun flares, certain populations turn to spirituality for comfort and explanation to account for the bizarre events.
We were supposed to start at dawn today, head out to the southern valley and scout for another branch location. A few more weeks of this overcrowding and I might get snippy. Good morning, Mark said in response. You seem chipper today.
She smiled at that; Mark had known she would. I do tend to get straight to business sometimes, dont I? Though I have a lot of wiggle room before I get as grumpy as Alec.
The sarge? Yeah, youre right. On cue, the old bear grunted.

Sorry about being late,Trina said. Id make up a great excuse, but honestys the best policy. Mark made me go up to the stream and we. It took a lot to surprise Mark these days, even more to make him 15 blush, but Trina had the ability to do both.
He stammered as Lana rolled her eyes. Oh, spare me. Lana waved and added,Now go grab some breakfast if you havent already and lets get packed and marching. I want to be back within a week. A week out in the wilderness, seeing new things, getting some fresher air. He swore to keep his mind on the present while they traveled and just try to enjoy the hike.
Have you seen Darnell and the Toad? What about Misty? The Three Stooges? Alec asked, followed by a bark of a laugh. The man thought the weirdest things were funny.
The Kill Order
At least they remembered the plan. Already eaten, gone to pack. Should be back in a jiffy. Mark and Trina were halfway through their pancakes and deer sausage when they heard the familiar sound of the other three friends theyd picked up in the tunnels of New York.
Take that off your head! Mark was convinced the kid had never taken a thing seriously in his entire life. Even when the sun had been trying to boil him alive a year past, he seemed to be ready with a joke. But I like it! Helps keep my hair in place and protects me from the elements.
Two for the price of one! A girl walked in after him, tall and thin with long red hair, just a little younger than Mark. They called her Misty, though shed never told them whether that was her real name. She was looking at Darnell with an expression of half disgust and half amusement. The Toadshort and 16 squat, as his nickname impliedbounded in and pushed his way past her, grabbing for the undies atop Darnells head.
Give me those! He was the shortest nineteen year-old Mark had ever seen, but thick as an oak treeall muscle and sinew and veins. Which for some reason made the others think it was okay to pick on him, because they all knew he could beat the crap out of them if he really wanted to. But the Toad liked being the center of attention. And Darnell liked being goofy and annoying.
Why would you even want those nasty things on your head? Misty asked. You do realize where thats been, right? Covering up the Toads nether regions? Excellent point, Darnell replied with his own look of feigned disgust, just as the Toad nally was able to snatch the underwear off of his head.
Very poor judgment on my part. Darnell shrugged. Seemed funny at the time. The Toad was stufng his recaptured possession into his backpack.
Well, I get the last laugh. I havent washed those suckers in at least two weeks. He started up with that laugh, a noise that made Mark think of a dog ghting over a piece of meat.
Whenever the Toad let it out, every other person in the room couldnt help but join in, and the ice ofcially melted. Mark still couldnt tell if he was laughing at the subject matter or just at the sounds coming out of the Toad. Either way, such moments were few and far between, and it felt good to laugh, as it did to see Trinas face light up. Even Alec and Lana were chuckling, which made Mark think maybe it was going to be a perfect day after all.
But then their laughter was cut off by a strange sound. Something Mark hadnt heard in over a year, and hadnt expected to hear ever again. The sound of engines in the sky. Puffs of dust shot between the hastily stacked and mortared logs. A coughing roar swept past just overhead. Mark covered his ears until the sound faded enough that the Shack stopped shaking. Alec was already on his feet and heading for the door before anyone else could even process the turn of events.
Lana was quickly at his heels, with everyone else following. No one said a word until they were all outside, the bright morning sun beating down. Mark squinted, hand shielding the glare, as he searched the sky for the source of the noise.
Its a Berg, the Toad announced needlessly. What the. It was the rst time Mark had seen one of the enormous airships since the sun ares happened, and the sight of it was jolting. He couldnt think of any reason a Bergone that had survived the disaster would have to come ying through the mountains. But there it was, big and shiny and round, blue thrusters burning hot and loud as it lowered toward the middle of the settlement.
Whats it doing here? Trina asked as their little group jogged through the cramped alleys of the village, following the path of the Berg. Theyve always left supplies in the bigger settlements, like Asheville. Maybe theyre rescuing us or something? Taking us somewhere else? They wouldve done that a long time ago. Mark didnt say anything as he ran along at the back of the group, still a bit stunned by the sudden appearance of the huge Berg.
The others kept referencing some mysterious they, even though no one knew who they were. Thered been signs and rumors that some kind of central government was organizing itself, but no news that was even close to reliable.
And certainly no ofcial contact yet. It was true that supplies and food had been brought to the camps around Asheville, and the people there usually shared with the outlying settlements. The Berg stopped up ahead, its blue thrusters pointing downward now as it hovered fty feet or so above the Town Square, a roughly square-shaped area theyd left bare when building the settlement. The group picked up their pace and arrived in the Square to nd that a crowd had already gathered, the people gawking up at the ying machine as if it were a mythical beast.
With its roar and its dazzling display of blue light, it almost seemed so. Especially after such a long time since theyd seen any signs of advanced technology.
Most of the crowd had gathered in the center of the Square, their faces pictures of expectation and excitement. Like theyd all jumped to the same conclusion as Mistythat the Berg was here for rescue, or at least some spot of good news. Mark was wary, though. After the year hed just been through, hed been taught many times over to never get his hopes up.
Trina pulled on his sleeve, then leaned in to talk to him. Whats it doing? Theres not enough room here for it to land. I dont know.
There arent any markings or anything to say whose Berg it is or where it came from. Alec was close and somehow overheard their conversation over the burning snarl of the thrusters. Probably with his superpowered soldier 19 hearing. They say the ones that drop off supplies in Asheville have PFC painted in big letters on the side. Post-Flares Coalition. He was practically shouting.
Seems strange that this one has nothing on it.
Mark shrugged back at him, not sure Alecs information really meant anything. He realized he was sort of in a daze. He looked back up, wondered who could possibly be inside the vessel and what their purpose might be. Trina squeezed his hand and he squeezed hers back.
They were both sweating. Maybe its God inside, the Toad said in a high-pitched voiceit always came out that way when he shouted. Come to say hes sorry for all the sun are business. Out of the corner of his eye, Mark noticed Darnell taking in a breath, his mouth opening, probably to say something smart and funny back at the Toad. But the action was cut off by a loud wrenching sound from above, followed by the groan and squeal of hydraulics.
Mark watched in fascination as a large, square-shaped hatch on the bottom of the Berg began to open, pivoting on hinges to lower like a ramp. It was dark inside, and little wisps of mist came swirling out as the gap grew wider.
Gasps and shouts rippled throughout the crowd; hands raised and ngers pointed upward. Mark tore his gaze from the Berg for a moment to take everything in, struck by the sense of awe surrounding him. Theyd become a desperate, desperate people, living each day with the weighty feeling that the next one could be their last.
And here they all were, looking toward the sky as if the Toads joke had been more than that. There was a longing in many of the eyes he saw, like people truly thought they were being saved by some divine power. It made Mark feel a little sick. A fresh wave of gasps spilled through the Square, and Mark snapped his head to look up again. Five people had emerged from the darkness of the Berg, dressed in outts that sent a chill racing down Marks spinal 20 cord.
Green and rubbery and bulkyone-piece suits that covered the strangers from head to toe. The suits had clear visors in the headpiece through which the wearers could see, but the glare and distance made it impossible for Mark to make out their faces.
They stepped carefully in big black boots pulled up over the green material until the ve of them lined the outer edge of the lowered hatch door, their tense body language showing the effort it took to maintain balance. Each of them held a black tube in their hands as if it were a gun. But the tubes didnt look like any guns Mark had ever seen. They were thin and long, with an attachment at the end that made them resemble plumbing parts someone had ripped out of an industrial pump.
And once the strangers settled into their positions, they held up the tubelike things and aimed them directly at the people below. Mark realized that Alec was screaming at the top of his lungs, pushing and shoving people to move them away. Everything around them was erupting in chaosshouts and panicyet Mark had fallen into a trance, watching the strangers with their odd outts and their menacing weapons come out of the Berg as everyone else in the crowd nally woke up to the fact that these people werent there to save anyone.
What had happened to the Mark who could act fast? Who had survived the year of hell after the ares ravaged the earth? He was still frozen, watching, as the rst shot was red from above. A blur of movement, a quick ash of something dark and small and fast bursting from one of those tubes. Marks eyes followed the trajectory. He heard a sickening thunk, his head twisting to the side just in time to see that Darnell had a ve-inch-long dart sticking out of his shoulder, its thin metal shaft planted deep within the muscle.
Blood trickled down from the wound. The boy made a strange grunt as he collapsed to the ground. That nally snapped Mark out of it. Mark bent down, grabbing Darnell by hooking his elbows under the boys arms. The sound of ying darts cutting through the air to his left and right, nding targets, urged him to hurry, erasing any other thoughts from his mind.
Mark pulled on Darnell, dragging his body along the ground. Trina had fallen but Lana was there, helping her up.
Both of them ran over to help, each grabbing one of Darnells feet. With synchronized grunts they hefted him up and moved away from the Square, away from the open space. It was a miracle no one else in their little group had been struck by a dart. Swish, swish, swish. Thunk, thunk, thunk. Screams and bodies falling. The projectiles kept coming, landing all around them, and Mark and Trina and Lana shufed as quickly as they could, awkwardly carrying Darnell between them.
They passed behind a group of treesMark heard a few hard thunks as darts buried themselves in the branches and trunksthen they were in the open again. They hurried across a small clearing and into an alley between several haphazardly built log cabins. There were people everywhere, knocking frantically on doors, jumping through open windows.
Then Mark heard the roar of the thrusters and a warm wind blew across his face. The roar grew louder, the wind stronger. He looked up, following the noise, to see that the Berg had shifted position, pursuing 22 the eeing crowds. He saw the Toad and Misty. They were urging people to hurry, their shouts lost in the Bergs blast. Mark didnt know what to do. Finding shelter was the best bet, but there were too many people trying to do the same thing and joining the chaos with Darnell in tow would only get them trampled.
The Berg stopped again, and once more the strangers in their odd suits lifted their weapons and opened re.
A dart grazed Marks shirt and hit the ground; someone stepped on it, driving it deeper. Another dart hit home in the neck of a man just as he was running pasthe screamed and dove forward as blood spurted from the wound.
When he landed, he lay still and three people tripped over him. Mark only realized that hed stopped, appalled by what was happening around him, when Lana yelled at him to keep moving.
The shooters above them had obviously improved their aim. The darts were hitting people left and right and the air was lled with screams of pain and terror. Mark felt utterly helplessthere was no way to shield himself from the barrage. All he could do was lamely try to outrun a ying machine, an impossible task. Where was Alec? The tough guy with all the battle instincts?
What is Kobo Super Points?
Where had he run off to? Mark kept moving, yanking Darnells body along, forcing Trina and Lana to match his speed. The Toad and Misty ran alongside them, trying to help without getting in the way.
Darts continued to rain down from above, more screams, more falling bodies. Mark turned a corner and lurched down the alley that led back to the Shack, sticking close to the building on his right for a partial shield. Not as many people had come this way, and there were fewer darts to dodge. The little group hobbled as fast as they could with their unconscious friend. The structures were built practically on top of each other 23 in this section of the settlement, and there was no room to cut through and escape into the surrounding woods of the mountains.
Were almost to the Shack! Trina yelled. Hurry, before the Berg is back on top of us! Mark twisted his body around so that he was facing front, gripping Darnell by his shirt behind him. Shufing backward had strained his leg muscles to the max, and they burned with heat and were beginning to cramp. There was nothing in their way now to slow them down, so Mark sped up, Lana and Trina keeping pace, each holding one of Darnells legs.
The Toad and Misty squeezed in and each grabbed an arm, taking some of the load. They slipped through the narrow paths and alleys, over jutting roots and hard-packed dirt, turning left and then right and then left again. The roar of the Berg was coming from their right, muted by the buildings and rows of trees in between. Mark nally turned a corner and saw the Shack across a small clearing.
He moved to make a nal sprint for it, just as a horde of eeing residents swarmed in from the other side, frantic and wild, scattering in all directions, heading for every door in sight. He froze as the Berg rushed in overhead, closer to the ground than Mark had seen it before.Before death and destruction made it necessary to steal childrenalong with their memoriesand send them to a place as terrifying as the Maze.
She is pale and collapses to one knee. He suddenly starts banging his head against a wall to silence "Them" and ends up killing himself. But the calmness was like a drug inside her. He lay on the operating table, his eyes closed, chest rising and falling with soft, even breaths. Also, the main goal is to protect themselves first, as selfish as that may sound.
