The Eye of Minds

  • Book

Are you suffering from James Dashner withdrawal, readers? We certainly are. Thankfully, we can give you a first glimpse at his new novel with an exclusive cover reveal!

The Eye of Minds, the first book in Dashner’s new series, The Mortality Doctrine, centers on Michael, a gamer who spends the majority of his time in the addictive virtual-reality system known as the VirtNet. The VirtNet offers anyone with money the chance to live in the fantasy world of their choosing — no risk, and if you’re an adept enough hacker, no rules.

But not all rules were made to be broken. One gamer is taking the others hostage inside of the VirtNet, and the government turns to Michael to track this hacker down. Will he be able to survive off the VirtNet grid? Or will reality be lost to him forever? Check out the cover for The Eye of Minds (which sounds like Tron meets Scooby-Doo and the Cyber Chase, and therefore awesome) below:

The Eye of Minds hits shelves Oct. 8. Are you excited for Dashner’s new series?
