Waiting on Wednesday # 4, The Eye of Minds

Waiting on Wednesday #4

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Jill at Breaking The Spine that spotlights eagerly anticipated, upcoming books.

My Waiting on Wednesday is The Eye of Minds by James Dashner.


I have to tell you I didn't even look at the blurb before I added this to my Goodreads. I saw James Dashner had a new book and I hit add quickly. Some authors are just like that for me. I don't care if they wrote a book about knitting I'd buy it. Dashner is one of those authors.
Here's the blurb from Goodreads:

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 Mindsis 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'm so excited!! 

What are you waiting on?

  4. This one came out this Tuesday I think! So you should be able to go get it now! Great pick, I started reading an egalley of it, but it expired the day it was released, so I didn't get that far, but it started really off pretty interesting.
