After wrapping up “The Maze Runner” trilogy earlier this year, James Dashner is moving on to another series. This one, entitled The Mortality Doctrine, will focus on on a gamer named Michael. Here is the synopsis released by ew.com earlier today:
The Eye of Minds, the first book in Dashner’s new series, The Mortality Doctrine, centers on Michael, a gamer who spends the majority of his time in the addictive virtual-reality system known as the VirtNet. The VirtNet offers anyone with money the chance to live in the fantasy world of their choosing — no risk, and if you’re an adept enough hacker, no rules.
But not all rules were made to be broken. One gamer is taking the others hostage inside of the VirtNet, and the government turns to Michael to track this hacker down. Will he be able to survive off the VirtNet grid? Or will reality be lost to him forever?
Here is the cover:
“The Eye of Minds” hits shelves on October 8th.
What do you think about James’s new series? Are you going to read it? How about putting your two cents in this poll?
EDIT: If you looked at this post earlier and saw all of the Kill Order stuff on her, you are not going crazy. I am. I have noticed that my brain often switches The Death Cure and The Kill Order. I have completely altered the post to fit this realization of mine. Because of this, if you find any other mistakes in any of my posts in the future, please leave a comment below or contact me by one of the means listed in the “About Us” tab at the top of the page (Not the TheFandom.net one). Thank you all for understanding!
I honestly don’t know when it was released, but I just stumbled across the Spanish cover for The Death Cure!
Because of my poor Spanish skills, Google translate just informed me that la cura mortal translates literally to the fatal cure (just in case you were wondering).
Now compare this new cover to the English one.
While the English version gives hints to the main setting (Denver, Colorado), the Spanish edition maybe shows Thomas and Minho inside the berg, but I can’t really tell. Who do you think is pictured in the Spanish cover?
On that note, where do you think the characters you chose above are standing?
As promised earlier, I’m here to show you all the cover for the first book in the Infinity Ring series, written by our beloved James Dashner.
Pretty sweet, right? If you aren’t too familiar with the Infinity Ring series, I’ll fill you in. Infinity Ring will be a seven book series written by James and five other authors that is aimed at young readers ages 8-12. The action surrounds two best friends who find a device called an Infinity Ring that makes time travel possible. Using the Infinity Ring, Dak and Sera must visit the past to save the future.
The thing that is different about the Infinity Ring series is that it has its own online game that follows the books. You can play the game without the books, but reading the books will give you key information on how to move forward in the game. Will this help kids become more interested in reading? Chime in in this poll!
A Mutiny in Time will be released on August 28th, two weeks after The Kill Order comes out.
As I promised yesterday, I am about to dissect the cover of “The Kill Order”, which was also unveiled yesterday. If you missed the cover, here is a picture of it:
Please note: I may refer to some things that were not present in the trilogy, but did appear in the bonus content that appeared in the back of copies of “The Death Cure” that were purchased at Barnes and Noble. This bonus material contained messages and e-mails that were recovered from before and immediately after the Flare was released. So, if some things are said about the origin of the Flare that you don;t recognize, you now know why.
The first thing that came ti my mind when I saw this cover was the big ball of flame in the top left corner. My guess is that this is one of the solar flares that destroyed the entire middle section of the planet. Will this book be following someone who lived in an affected area? We know that this book has an entirely new cast of characters, so this is quite possible.
I also notice the burnt road, fences and houses. This picture seems to be of a subdivision, judging by the number of cars and houses clustered so close together. We can also assume that this is located somewhere in between the Tropic of Cancer and the Tropic of Capricorn, or somewhere close to there because we learned in “The Death Cure” that not all of the Earth was burned and that most of what was burned was in the center of it. For some reason, something in my head is telling me that this is in Arizona, but please DO NOT take this a fact.
The last thing I want to say about the cover is that I love how it has that cute little “The prequel to the New York Times bestselling Maze Runnerseries” at the very top. That is sure to catch someone’s eye while browsing for books this fall!
As always, leave you comments below this post about what you think the cover could say about the book. And now, it is time for a poll!
