Overview

The world is virtual, but the danger is real in the next series from MAZE RUNNER author James Dashner.
 
    The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and the more hacking skills you have, the more fun it is. Why bother following the rules when it’s so easy to break them? But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And one gamer has been doing exactly that, with murderous results.
     The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker. And they’ve been watching Michael. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid, to the back alleys and corners of the system human eyes have never seen—and it’s possible that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.
   The author who brought you the #1 New York Times bestselling MAZE RUNNER series and two #1 movies—The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials—now brings you The Eye of Minds, the first book in THE MORTALITY DOCTRINE series, an edge-of-your-seat adventure that takes you into a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyber terrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares.
 
“Dashner takes full advantage of the Matrix-esque potential for asking ‘what is real.’” —io9.com
 
“Set in a world taken over by virtual reality gaming, the series perfectly capture[s] Dashner’s hallmarks for inventiveness, teen dialogue and an ability to add twists and turns like no other author.” —MTV.com
 
“A brilliant, visceral, gamified mash-up of The Matrix and Inception, guaranteed to thrill even the non-gaming crowd.” —Christian Science Monitor

Editorial Reviews

We've always been told that games are games, but in total immersion online world of the VirNet, anything is possible and everything is at stake. As an ardent and skillful gamer, Michael has spent more time on VirNet than he had first planned, all the while developing advanced skills as the government has been watching. Eventually, they draft him for a most dangerous mission: A malicious hacker has tapped into VirNet and is holding players hostage. Worse yet, he has been leaving his victims brain dead. The Powers-That-Be are asking young Michael to place himself in extreme danger as he attempts to outhack the hacker. (P.S. This Barnes & Noble Exclusive Edition contains the author's annotations.)
