Blurb:
     From James Dashner, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, comes the final book in the Mortality Doctrine series, an edge-of-your-seat cyber-adventure trilogy that includes The Eye of Minds and The Rule of Thoughts.
       Includes a sneak peek of The Fever Code, the highly anticipated conclusion to the Maze Runner series--the novel that finally reveals how the Maze was built!
       Michael used to live to game, but now, the games are over. The VirtNet has become a world of deadly consequences, and cyber terrorist Kaine grows stronger by the day. The Mortality Doctrine--Kaine's master plan--has nearly been realized, and little by little the line separating the virtual from the real is blurring. If Kaine succeeds, it will mean worldwide cyber domination. And it looks like Michael and his friends are the only ones who can put the monster back in the box--if Michael can figure out who his friends really are.
      The author who brought you the #1 New York Times bestselling MAZE RUNNER series and two #1 movies--The Maze Runner and Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials--now brings you an electrifying adventure trilogy that takes you into a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyber terrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares.


Praise for the Mortality Doctrine Series: 
-Dashner takes full advantage of the Matrix-esque potential for asking 'what is real.'- --io9.com
-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.- --MTV.com
-A brilliant, visceral, gamified mash-up of The Matrix and Inception, guaranteed to thrill even the non-gaming crowd.- --Christian Science Monitor

Excerpt: 

Michael straggled behind the remaining group as they returned to the bunker. He was last to enter the building and could feel the nervous energy the moment he stepped inside. Everyone was on their feet, surrounding Helga. Walter went straight to her to give his recap of what they’d found in the woods. Michael hung back—he wished he’d had more time with the man named Trae.
“Not much good news,” Helga announced to the room. “Walter spotted a group of twenty. Armed. Only a few were children, despite what that little ghost of a girl claimed. Amy and Chris saw others lurking behind trees.”
She paused, seemingly searching for how to finish. “Richard found some wire, followed it to the base of the
barracks. Looks like there’s enough explosives packed around the edges to blow us to the moon. I don’t know when they set them, but we’re in a heap of trouble. And I’m afraid that if we try to leave, they’ll detonate.”
“Can’t we just cut the wires or something?” Sarah’s mom
asked. “Doesn’t anyone know how to disconnect them? Disarm them? Whatever?”
“Bad idea,” Walter answered. “If we don’t know what we’re working with, it could all go off in our faces.”

The room fell silent. Michael folded his arms and tried to think. The thing that bothered him most was that these people said they didn’t work for Kaine anymore. And if Michael had learned anything from gaming, it was that if you wanted to win a war, you had to know who the enemy was.
