The Maze Runner is a dystopian thriller, soon to be released as a blockbuster film from 20th Century Fox, and now Dashner is celebrating the release of an all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure. The Eye of Minds is the first book in The Mortality Doctrine, a series set in a world of hyperadvanced technology, cyberterrorists, and gaming beyond your wildest dreams . . . and your worst nightmares.
