Thank you to Rockstar Book Tours, for letting me participate in the Blog Tour for The Game Lives. I was excited to read this, because I had read the first two with my teenage son. We both really enjoyed them, so it was perfect timing to read and review this one. I rate it a 4/5 Stars.
I do like Jame Dashners writing style, this book is very imaginative, exciting, and an intriguing read. Sometimes trilogies suffer towards the last book, they tend to not be wrapped up nice and tidy. I felt this series concluded very well, and I wasn’t left with too many lingering questions. Maybe just one, but I also think James Dashner did that on purpose. I enjoyed this journey, reading it alone, and reading with my son. Now it’s time to pass the book on to him, and hope that he enjoys it as well. F.Y.I. I have not read the Maze Runner series, so I may eventually have to check those out too.

Author: James Dashner
Pub. Date: May 2, 2017

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.
