"A fitting end to an exceptional trilogy.”Kirkus Reviews 

Delacorte Press is pleased to announce the publication of THE GAME OF LIVES (On sale November 17, 2015 / $18.99), the final book in New York Times and USA Today bestselling author James Dashner’s The Mortality Doctrine seriesan edge-of-your-seat cyber-adventure trilogy that includes The Eye of Minds and The Rule of Thoughts. The book has a first printing of 250,000 copies and is supported by a major marketing and publicity campaign. 

Only weeks ago, sinking into the Sleep was fun, and Michael used to live to game. The VirtNet combined the most cutting-edge technology and the most sophisticated gaming for a full mind-body experience. But now every time Michael sinks, he risks his life, as the VirtNet has become a world of deadly consequences. The Mortality Doctrine—Kaines 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 Mortality Doctrine series has been hailed as “an intriguing read for the digital generation” (Kirkus Reviews) and “a gripping page-turner” (BookPage), delivering “an adrenaline rush” (School Library Journal). The series has captivated Dashner fans and became an instant New York Times bestseller. THE GAME OF LIVES is sure to follow suit.
