Entertainment Weekly revealed the cover for James Dashner’s final book in The Mortality Doctrine trilogy, The Game of Lives. The book comes out November 17, 2015. What do you think of the cover?
Dashner also talks a little about The Game of Lives in an interview with EW.
EW: First of all, what do you think about The Game of Lives cover?
JAMES DASHNER: I really like the cover. I feel like they’ve done a good job of keeping this futuristic theme. It gives you a virtual feel to it because everything is set in the virtual world. I like that each of the three books has its own unique color scheme, and that the character, Michael, is doing something a little more intriguing and perilous with each cover. So I’m really happy with it. It shows a lot more than it at first seems.
How much time has passed between the second book, The Rule of Thoughts, and this one?
The Rule of Thoughts leaves off with something really devastating that has happened to all the characters. But just when it seems like there’s not much hope for them, there’s an intriguing little twist that sets everyone on a new path. And the third book starts instantly after the second book ends. No time has passed at all.
What can you tease about The Game of Lives?
I would say that the stakes are really raised in what’s happening in both the real world and the virtual world. And that Michael is not so sure anymore who his enemies are. This figure of Kaine suddenly becomes much more complex to them, and they’re trying to understand what he is, what his purpose is, and who actually might truly be behind what he’s doing. The third book is full of a lot of action, but some really intriguing twists to the story. The Game of Lieswill be a solid ending to this trilogy of books.
