Attention Dashner Army! It is November 26 today, which means it’s James’ birthday today!
Happy Birthday James!
You can tweet him your birthday greeting at @jamesdashner, but before you do that, you can read part 2 of the exclusive interview we had with him about his latest book, The Eye of Minds. We’ve waited to post it to give you readers time to actually read the book, because this part of the interview contains **spoilers**!
With that said, if you haven’t read The Eye of Minds yet, then you might want to skip out on this interview until you have.
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.
