Waiting on Wednesday (#4)



Waiting on Wednesday is about sharing a book every week you cannot wait to be published. This week, I'm waiting on

(The Mortality Doctrine, #1)
by James Dashner


Genre: Young Adult, Science-Fiction
Pages: 320

Expected Publication: October 8, 2013
Publisher: Delacorte Books for Young Readers

Description 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 really enjoyed the whole The Maze Runner trilogy, so I'm pretty excited about this one as well! Sci-fi is one of my favourite genres so The Eye of Minds makes me even more anxious to read it asap!

    1. The Maze Runner trilogy is one of those which end up hating or loving. But they are pretty quick reads, so if you aren't captured by the first book you can always stop reading the trilogy. :)

      Thanks for stopping by!
