The Eye of Minds

Michael is a gamer who spends more time on the VirtNet than he does in reality.  He's never even met his best friends, Sarah and Bryson in the real world.  He's pretty content with his life of gaming and hanging out until one day he witnesses a girl committing suicide.  Usually when you die in a game, your body just wakes up, but Tanya ripped out her core before she jumped.  With her connection to her real body severed, virtual death is the same as real death.  Michael can't understand why she would do it, and all she will tell him before she goes is a name:  Kaine.

Now Michael and his friends are on a mission to find Kaine, a gamer with the skills to trap people in the VirtNet and manipulate the raw code to create his own reality.  They may not be able to die in the VirtNet, but they can certainly feel pain, and the trio of friends will have to face dangerous and bloody situations as they track Kaine.

The deeper they travel, the more they question the real purpose of their mission, and Michael has the distinct feeling that everyone is holding back key information that could mean the difference between life and death.

This was a great thrill ride!  The ending was a little rushed, but that will just leave you hungry for the sequel.

Read James Dashner's exciting new book, and then read The Maze Runner before the movie comes out later this year!
