Summary
From James Dashner, the author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, which includes The Maze Runner --now a #1 movie worldwide--and The Scorch Trials --soon to be a major motion picture from Twentieth Century Fox that hits theaters on September 18, 2015--comes an all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure.  The Eye of Minds is the first novel in the Mortality Doctrine 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.

Praise for The Eye of Minds , Book One in the Mortality Doctrine series

"More realistic and addictive than any video game-- The Eye of Minds sucked me in from the very first page. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets The Matrix in a vividly rendered world of gamers, hackers, and cyber-terrorists. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!"--Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of Unbreakable
 
"A gripping page-turner, Dashner's latest is sure to please."-- BookPage
 
"Full of action [and] a rather surprising twist that will leave you flipping pages."-- fanboynation.com
 
 "An adrenaline rush." -- School Library Journal

"In typical Dashner style, this is quick and involving, with the main frustration being the wait time until the next book." -- Booklist

"High on concept, this is an intriguing read for the digital generation." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Dashner once again creates a dystopian world in which nothing is what it seems."- VOYA

A Junior Library Guild Selection

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In Dashner's futuristic series starter, virtual life offers Michael opportunities to escape the real world. He spends most of his time on the Virtnet, playing Lifeblood Deep with his virtual friends Bryson and Sarah. Now, haunted by his daytime experiences, he needs them more than ever. What Michael fears most comes true: Virtual Network Security tracks him down, but not to chastise him for wrongdoing; rather, they want his hacking skills to get to Kaine, a gamer who is causing terrible tragedies. Michael and his friends begin the trek into the hand-to-hand combat warfare game Devils of Destruction, but with the virtual death of his friends, Michael finds himself alone in his quest. Harrowing evil and dastardly demons place themselves in his path, and he almost capitulates to the pain and exhaustion. What awaits him in the bowels of the game hangs over readers' heads with each page turn, raising a constant question: Who is human and who is not? In typical Dashner style, this is quick and involving, with the main frustration being the wait time until the next book. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Dashner's Maze Runner trilogy was huuuuge. With a video game, author tour, and major outdoor advertising, this could be even huger.--Petty, J. B. Copyright 2010 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Kicking off his new Mortality Doctrine series, this novel from Dashner follows the adventures of Michael, a teenage expert gamer in the virtual world known as the VirtNet. But an evil hacker called Kaine is taking over the VirtNet, forcing players to do his bidding, and even causing real deaths. The government enlists Michael and his friends to search the hidden realms of the VirtNet to find the rogue player-but doing so puts their lives in danger. Narrator Davies hands in a gritty, suspenseful performance that makes the book's action scenes truly exciting. He also skillfully differentiates character voices, including those of Michael and his friends, officious government agents, and the evil Kaine. This imaginative audiobook should appeal to fans of dystopian sci-fi and virtual gaming. Ages 12-up. A Delacorte hardcover. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
