The Kill Order Chapter 40

By James Dashner

Chapter 40

  • When Alec finds his flashlight, he puts it on and reveals the Berg nestled inside the room. Jackpot.
  • They run over to the hatch door, only to hear the struggling outside of the door vanish. At first Mark thinks this is a good sign, but then he realizes it's just that the people are up to no good.
  • Alec gets the hatch door open; they walk inside, and they find three workpads.
  • Just as Mark is taking a look at one, he's thrown to the side and the workpad falls.
  • One of Bruce's people most likely pushed a button somewhere, opening the landing pad… which then causes the central chamber to rotate open.
