The Kill Order Chapter 27

By James Dashner

Chapter 27

  • Alec, being the madman he is, screams and heads straight for the fire. Oh well: if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. Right?
  • Mark follows, and Alec yells that he wants to be as close to the fire as possible so they know where they are. Plus, they might lose some of the crazy people.
  • The two run in a serpentine route for a while, only to stop at a tree to catch their breath.
  • They start up again, and finally they reach the clearing where they left their friends. Mark yells for Trina, but there's no response. Just silence.
