Enter for a chance to win an ARC of James Dashner’s Latest Novel, THE EYE OF MINDS

Here’s your chance to win an Advance Reader’s Copy of The Eye of Minds, the first book of James Dashner‘s next series, The Mortality Doctrine.

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.

James Dashner has built another exciting and terrifying world for us to delve ourselves into with The Eye of Minds.  Do you want to read it for free?  Enter by clicking on the image or link below!  U.S. Residents only, please.

First Chapter of “The Eye of Minds”

Earlier today, USA Today released the first chapter of “The Eye of Minds”, the first book in James Dashner’s new series Mortality Doctrine that will be released October 8th. You can read the excerpt here.

If this is the first you are hearing about this new series, here is the first book’s synopsis:

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?

I was honestly blown away by this excerpt and cannot wait for the book to come out. What did you think? Make sure to tell us, as well as the rest of the Internet, in the comments below.
