Trailer Tuesday (66) The Star by Javi Araguz & The Eye Of Minds by James Dashner

Trailer Tuesday is a Weekly Blog Post hosted by me at Blood Sweat and Books. Each week I choose two Book Trailers to showcase. One Trailer will be for an upcoming book and the other will be one that has already been released. This week I focus my spotlight on The Star by Javi Araguz &


Available Now:
The Star by Javi Araguz
Centuries ago a catastrophe turned Linde into a hostile place. Since then, the survivors have learned to live in isolation within the boundaries of the Safe Limits. But the planet is constantly subjected to a change in shape and people are lost, never to return. After a violent planetary transformation, Lan, a courageous girl from the Salvia clan, wakes up in the middle of the desert, only to be rescued by her worst enemy.

Expected Publication: October 8, 2013
An all-new, edge-of-your seat adventure from James Dashner, the author of the New York Times bestselling Maze Runner series, 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.

Michael is a gamer. And like most gamers, he almost spends more time on the VirtNet than in the actual world. The VirtNet offers total mind and body immersion, and it’s addictive. Thanks to technology, anyone with enough money can experience fantasy worlds, risk their life without the chance of death, or just hang around with Virt-friends. And the more hacking skills you have, the more fun. Why bother following the rules when most of them are dumb, anyway?

But some rules were made for a reason. Some technology is too dangerous to fool with. And recent reports claim that one gamer is going beyond what any gamer has done before: he’s holding players hostage inside the VirtNet. The effects are horrific—the hostages have all been declared brain-dead. Yet the gamer’s motives are a mystery.

The government knows that to catch a hacker, you need a hacker.
And they’ve been watching Michael. They want him on their team.
But the risk is enormous. If he accepts their challenge, Michael will need to go off the VirtNet grid. There are back alleys and corners in the system human eyes have never seen and predators he can’t even fathom—and there’s the possibility that the line between game and reality will be blurred forever.

  1. The trailer for The Eye of Minds is pretty good, but I admit the story just doesn't appeal to me. Not much of a gamer, though my husband is. I actually gave away my ARC of this so someone who'd actually enjoy it could read it.
