Waiting on Wednesday #9

I'm participating in this weekly meme hosted at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we are eagerly awaiting.
This Week:
The Eye of Minds by James Dashner
Expected Publication: October 8th 2013
The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine, #1)

An all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure from James Dashner, the author of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, 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

My Thoughts:
tumblr_m5w7mlYLuX1qf0ybj I am so excited for another James Dashner book. This series sounds even better than the Maze Runner series if that were even possible!

  1. Oooh, I take it you're a huge fan of James Dashner? I've had The Maze Runner sitting on my shelf for like a year but have never picked it up. Maybe I should! (At least before the movie comes out...)

    Asti: You could say that! And you should read the Maze Runner soon! I know a lot of people don't understand it but it's a great novel
