Warning: If you have not read the previous two books in the Mortality Doctrine Series, there are spoilers!
Michael used to love going into the Virtnet. Now every time he goes in, he is risking his life. And Kaine’s master plan is nearly complete. The Mortality Doctrine is slowly blurring the line between the Virtnet and real life. Agent Weber having failed and lost Michael’s trust, Michael has to trust new and unexpected allies. But are these people worthy of being trusted? The Burn-and-Pillage-y Trilogy has to put an end to Kaine’s plan before the world is over run with Tangents.
The Game of Lives is the 3rd and final book in the Mortality Doctrine Series. It has multiple plot twists and a rather happy ending. Although, I personally hated the ending. Throughout the whole series it made Maze Runner references, which bothered me a lot. I know that James Dashner wrote both series, but it just bothered me that they referenced it and the two series kind of merged. And the ending was a little bit of a cliffhanger. So if you don’t mind references from The Maze Runner and a cliffhanger at the end I would recommend this book to you. This whole series was a bit weird, but I eventually just finished the book just to find out the ending, not because it was good. This series definitely is not my favorite dystopian trilogy, but if you’re just looking for a book to read I would turn to this one.
