The Eye Of Minds (the Mortality Doctrine, Book One) is rated 4.625 out of 5 by 8.
The world is virtual, but the danger is real in the next series from MAZE RUNNER author James Dashner.
 
    The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and the more hacking skills you have, the more fun it is. Why bother following the rules when it’s so easy to break them? But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And one gamer has been doing exactly that, with murderous results.
     The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker. And they’ve been watching Michael. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid, to the back alleys and corners of the system human eyes have never seen—and it’s possible that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.
   The author who brought you the #1 New York Times bestselling MAZE RUNNER series and two #1 movies—The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials—now brings you The Eye of Minds, the first book in THE MORTALITY DOCTRINE series, an edge-of-your-seat adventure that takes you into a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyber terrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares.
 
“Dashner takes full advantage of the Matrix-esque potential for asking ‘what is real.’” —io9.com
 
“Set in a world taken over by virtual reality gaming, the series perfectly capture[s] Dashner’s hallmarks for inventiveness, teen dialogue and an ability to add twists and turns like no other author.” —MTV.com
 
“A brilliant, visceral, gamified mash-up of The Matrix and Inception, guaranteed to thrill even the non-gaming crowd.” —Christian Science Monitor

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Mystery On Every Page. I thought it was a great book! There was so many great mysteries around every corner. Every time I would pick up the book, I wouldn't want to put it down because of the cliff hangers at the end of every Chapter. Overall, in my opinion it was an amazing book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Must Read! I bought this a few days ago and I have already soared through this amazing book. The way James Dashner writes is very descriptive and gives you a better understanding of the Virtnet and other locations he travels you to in this amazing book. If you liked the Maze Runner, I am sure you will love The Eye of Minds. Great plot twists. I can't wait to read the sequel!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Ending Makes it Worth It! As I got closer to the end of this book I started to think that this would be the only book in the series I would read. It was good but not so good that I wanted read a second one. Then came the final chapter of the book and now I can't wait until the next one comes out. So hang in there. The ending makes it worth it.
