Meet James Dashner
In his first ever UK appearance, JAMES DASHNER will be signing THE EYE OF MINDS (Doubleday) at the Forbidden Planet London Megastore on Monday 2nd December from 6 – 7pm.
The Game Is On...
Open the pages of this thriller and enter into The VirtNet; a world with hyper advanced technology, cyber terrorists, and gaming beyond any of your wildest fantasies...and nightmares.
Michael is a gamer. Like most gamers he spends more time in the VirtNet then in reality. For Michael and his VirtNet friends playing by the rules is no fun and the more hacking skills you have the more fun the game is. But some rules are meant to be followed and some technology is too dangerous to be messed around with. Recent reports claim that one gamer, Kaine, has been taking players hostage with horrific consequences: he leaves his victims brain dead. No one knows Kaine’s motives, but it’s clear to the government that he has to be stopped.
The government know that to catch him they need a supremely skilled hacker’s help. They’ve been watching Michael and his friends, and tell them to seek out Kaine. If Michael accepts their challenge, the risks will be colossal – he will face predators that no one’s ever faced and back alleys that have no exit – he’ll also be taken off the VirtNet grid.
If Michael accepts this challenge then he will forever be blurring the line between reality and fantasy…
James Dashner is the author of New York Times bestseller, The Maze Runner - which will be released as a feature film in February 2014, starring Dylan O’Brian, Thomas Brodie-Sangster and Kaya Scodelario.
