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.
