Mortality Doctrine: The Rule Of Thoughts




The exciting sequel to THE EYE OF MINDS from bestselling author of the MAZE RUNNER series, James Dashner.

Michael completed the Path. What he found at the end turned everything he’d ever known about his life completely upside down.

He thought he’d been helping VirtNet Security to track down the cyber-terrorist Kaine.

He thought the VirtNet would be safe for gamers once more.

But the truth is more terrifying than he could ever have imagined. Kaine is in fact a Tangent, a computer program that has come alive. And Kaine’s master plan is to populate the earth entirely with human bodies harbouring Tangent minds.

Unless Michael can stop him . . .

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Maze Runner series comes The Rule of Thoughts, the exciting sequel to The Eye of Minds. Fans of the Divergent series by Veronica Roth and The Hunger Games will love the new Mortality Doctrine series.

Praise for Mortality Doctrine: The Rule Of Thoughts

An excellent sequel, filled with propulsive character development and a self-contained emotional arc woven through plot threads that properly lead to future installments. The escalation in plotting is smartly paced and paired with well-balanced characters that feel real rather than just character types. The author's use of nifty technobabble goes a long way in describing a future that, refreshingly, is not dystopian in any way. Amid a sea of trilogies and series devoid of imagination or smarts, the Mortality Doctrine stands tall by having both in equal measure.

Kirkus Reviews

Dashner’s descriptions are screenplay-ready, with Portals in malls, virtual battles, and a giant purple Ray of Power. This book will satisfy the author’s fans, reluctant readers, and gamers in search of an adrenaline rush.

School Library Journal

Explores issues of identity, humanity, and virtual worlds in an exhilarating adventure story with touches of Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider books and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game
