Praise for the Mortality Doctrine Series:

“Dashner takes full advantage of the Matrix-esque potential for asking ‘what is real.’” —
“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.” —
“A brilliant, visceral, gamified mash-up of The Matrix and Inception, guaranteed to thrill even the non-gaming crowd.” —Christian Science Monitor

“An exhilarating adventure story with touches of Anthony Horowitz’s Alex Rider books and Orson Scott Card’s Ender’s Game.“

“More realistic and addictive than any video game—The Eye of Minds sucked me in from the very first page. The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo meets The Matrix in a vividly rendered world of gamers, hackers, and cyber-terrorists. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series!”—Kami Garcia, #1 New York Times bestselling coauthor of Beautiful Creatures and author of Unbreakable
A gripping page-turner, Dashner’s latest is sure to please.”—BookPage
“Dashner’s descriptions are screenplay-ready…This book will satisfy the author’s fans…[and readers] in search of an adrenaline rush.”-School Library Journal

“Full of action [and] a rather surprising twist that will leave you flipping pages.”—

High on concept, this is an intriguing read for the digital generation.”—Kirkus Reviews

“Dashner once again creates a dystopian world in which nothing is what it seems.“-VOYA
