The Game of Lives: The Mortality Doctrine, Book Three Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
From James Dashner, author of the number-one New York Times best-selling Maze Runner series, comes The Game of Lives, 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.
Michael used to live to game, but the games he was playing have become all too real. Only weeks ago, sinking into the Sleep was fun. The VirtNet combined the most cutting-edge technology and the most sophisticated gaming for a full mind-body experience. And it was Michael’s passion. But now every time Michael sinks, he risks his life.
The games are over. The VirtNet has become a world of deadly consequences, and 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.
And don't miss The Maze Runner movie and its sequel, Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials, from Twentieth Century Fox!
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)

This book is just plain cool. In the thrilling conclusion to his Mortality Doctrine series, Dashner has brilliantly imagined a world in which virtual reality has been taken to terrifying new levels where the lines between what is real and what is virtual blur dangerously.
There are so many twists and turns in this inventive plot, I never knew what to expect. Between trying to decipher what was real from what wasn't, deciding which characters could be trusted and which ones couldn't, and the intense and imaginative actions scenes, I was constantly on the edge of my seat.
Something Dashner does incredibly well in all of his book is writing teen dialogue. His word choices have such an authentic quality to them that really builds this great camaraderie between some of his characters and keeps the tension at a boiling point between others, and really brings these characters to life.
I loved how so many action scenes in this book take place in a virtual setting. Not only is it really creative and fun to read, but it also delivered an action-packed story where brains could very believably, and without any super powers, defeat braun. I loved that!
This book is, of course, perfect for fans of The Maze Runner series. I also feel like this is an ideal book for gamers as well as fans of YA sci-fi or dystopian novels in general.
