Title: The Eye of Minds
Author: James Dashner
Comes out October 8th 2013
Summery: The Eye of Minds is the first book in The Mortality Doctrine, a series set in a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares.
Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?
But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.
The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.
And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team. But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.
I am a HUGE fan of James Dashner. The Maze Runner is one of my top favorite books and can’t wait for the movie. It is really awesome that James decided to do another dystopian book and when i found out it was gonna be about gamer’s, i was jumping up and down with joy. James has proven to me with the Maze Runner so i already feel like this book is gonna be amazing, i have really high hopes for this series. The whole concept of the story seems very interesting. I haven’t read a books like it yet, Where games are like reality. It kind of reminds me of .Heck if any of you have watch anime. I am gonna buy this book a.s.a.p when it comes out. I think the cover is really awesome and artsy. I really do hope this book is good. Dashner + Video Games = Epicness. The Book comes out only in a few days, so i already see myself at Barnes and Noble running to the book, and hugging it and never letting go.
Here’s to Dashner and the Dashner Army, Cheers!
