The Kill Order Cover


Here it is, the official cover for The Kill Order, a prequel to The Maze Runner series, coming August 14th (North America). Soon to many other countries and languages. I love the artwork by Philip Straub (he did the other covers as well, and I'd say he's 4 for 4).

It's awesome! Can't wait to hold it in my hands :)

Krysta said...

I love it! I cannot WAIT until August!

Ooooh! I think it's very dramatic compared to the rest! I am really looking forward to the prequel. It's not very often that you get a prequel explanation about a dystopian tragedy or the leading events to the series. It's always a quick "there was destruction to our world..." and then their story. I am so thrilled!!! I am really hoping that I can find a way to get this particular copy as a book reviewer!!! Can't wait, James!

Danyelle Ferguson said...

Its very fiery. :) looks cool!

Alicia said...

That's amazing!! I can't wait!!

Lady_Mel said...

James, it's wonderful! Can't wait to get my shucking hands on this book, not even WICKED will stop me from reading this

Camila said...

I love it! it follows up the design of the previous covers.

tapestry100 said...

Love it! A good companion to the rest of the books.

Ryan S. said...

Looks great! Can't wait to get it! The death cure's lost files book did a good job of giving a taste of what to expect in kill order!

Rebecca said...

It is nice to have a series with such beautifully coordinated covers. I am however much more interested in the text, but a good cover is always a bonus. Looking forward to the release! (I can admit it now...I liked this series better than The Hunger Games.)

Ryan said...

Wow! So freaking cool. Cannot wait to read this one! Best cover of the lot!

Stephanie Black said...

Nice!!

Renee Collins said...

Creepy and cool! It will stand out on the bookshelves, that's for sure.

I love it, even though I feel rather morbid saying that about a picture of a suburban street perishing in flames. ;)

Shannon Dittemore said...

STOKED!

Will check out the whole series...looks intriguing...!

Melissa R said...

I like it a lot. It feels within reach. We can understand it because it hits home (umm... like houses and streets and regular stuff). It's like our own home in ruins. Can't wait!

Aydel said...

Love ir!

Eve said...

Oh it looks cool. Have the date marked in my calender.

Angela Brown said...

I'd have to agree with you. This cover is seriously eye catching. And for book covers, that is a must. The fiery sky and the ravaged earth drip with destruction. Great job indeed.

Sara (of the Page Sage) said...

It's perfect. So, so perfect! I can't wait to see it next to my copies of the rest of the series!! :D

Kathryn @ Clean Teen Fiction said...

It looks great! Very intense with the fire sky.

Christopher Miller said...

I am so looking forward to the series finale of USA's In Plain Sight, coming March 16th.

The stories around Witness Protection are interesting but it's really the relationship between the to main characters that is so compeling.

Julia King said...

Fantastic! I'm excited as you should be! Currently, I'm listening to The Scorch Trials. I love it. Thanks for writing. I hope to join you in published-land very soon. :D

Gina said...

I agree, 4 for 4!

This is my favorite series of all time. The whole plot is amazingly set up and is just perfect. The Scorch Trials is my personal favorite. This cover looks awesome, and I am so excited to get explanation on such an amazing series. How can i possibly wait until August?! Thank you James!

Melina said...

Hey Dashner!

I will say the usual...

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Tricia Copeland said...

Meeeeep!! It's so... It's so... Fiery!! And it's another Maze Runner book, which makes it twelve point five times AWESOMER.
Is it going to be released in hardcover? Or paperback? Or will it just be an ebook? I hope it's in hardcover... :D thanks for sharing it!

I love this cover. It gives a good sense of what the book will be about.

Dandy said...

Fantastic cover- this might be my favorite yet. Anxiously awaiting the book!

Alice said...

Amazing! I look forward to reading it.

Hey James! I can't wait for the Kill Order. On msn.com I read an article on the solar flares that are happening right now. Here's the link http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/46668792/ns/technology_and_science-space/t/solar-storm-hits-our-planet-so-far-no-problem/. It reminds me of the solar flares in the Maze Runner series. Did you predict the future? I hope not because those Cranks scare me! I notice that in some of your posts you call Stephen King Uncle Stevie. Is he your uncle? I have to say is your my favorite author and never stop writing. You are awesome! And I love writing. I actually started writing a book but I'm under 18 (I don't want to give out too much information) so I've never had much experience with writing an actual book. Any adivce? Well that's about it. Bye and as mentioned before I can't wait for the Kill Order!

J.S. Carhartt said...

Looks fantastic! My son and I both have read (and loved) the Maze Runner series, and are excited (albeit waiting oh so impatiently) for the release of The Kill Order. :)

James said...

I can't wait! After I've seen what u can do, you're my favorite writer and have me on the edge of my set waiting for more answers!

James said...

btw im named james too

Sydney James said...

Does anyone know James Dashner's address? I know it sounds like I'm a stalker, but I'm not. I have to write a business letter in school and James Dashner is my favorite author so I want to write to him.

anonymous said...

NOOO! I HAVE TO WAIT TILL AUGUST!

Grace said...

AWESOME!

j.l.11 said...

Omg im gunna pass out :')

j.l.11 said...

Im thinking the same thing.xD

j.l.11 said...

Good one xD

febster said...

I WILL DEFINITELY BE READING THIS BOOK!!!!! The cover is beautiful, and I have no doubt that this series will be amazingly, incredibly sad, since James Dashner is good at killing the people you least expect (or want), to die. For example, CHUCK! And NEWT! Newt was my all-time favorite character and he died!!!!!! :(

I can't wait, this is one of my favorite series! The ending of the Death Cure was a little bit of a letdown, but I still liked it, and the previous two books! Besides, there are a lot of unanswered questions about WICKED and the Gladers, like What was Thomas real name? What was his family like? How did he get selected to have that mind-reading thing done to him? I hope these and more will be answered!

Wow. I loved this series and can't wait for the next one. I'd like to know, how is it different writing in such a darker tone for Maze Runner in contrast to the Jimmy Fincher saga?

I've noticed that many authors have little variation in their different books, but you manage to make each series seem like it was written by a completely different author!

I love the way you're able to throw twists too. I can't wait for the next!

Elvis said...

Great. Thank you very much. I look forward to read it :-)

DOIDOI said...

DOIDOI said...
