Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly post started by Breaking the Spine, to show books that we are patiently waiting for.  

The book we're waiting for this week is:

The Eye of Minds (The Mortality Doctrine #1) by James Dashner
Expected publication: October 8th 2013 by Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Book Description:

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.
Why I'm excited for this:
It's  James Dashner :)


  1. Oh I'm liking the sounds of The Eyes of Minds, it sounds so different to the other books I've seen around and of course it's by James Dashner an author whose books I've been meaning to pick up for ages! Thanks for putting this on my radar! :)

  2. The nerdy part of me (the gamer) is EXCITED :D This book sounds a bit like the movie Gamer and that was a great concept. I can't wait!


  3. This sounds GOOD! I haven't read any James Dashner yet, but I'd like to give him a try. And this cover is SO COOL!

  4. HOW DID I NOT KNOW THIS EXISTED?! Thanks for spotlighting this. It sounds quite similar to Jeff Norton's Metawars, so I'll have to look out for it :)
