Synopsis (Goodreads)
Michael completed the Path. What he found at the end turned everything he’d ever known about his life completely upside down.

He barely survived. But it was the only way VirtNet Security could track down the cyber-terrorist Kaine – and to make the Sleep safe for gamers once again. And, the truth Michael discovered about Kaine is more terrifying than even the worst of their fears.

Kaine is a tangent, a computer program that has become sentient (come alive?). And Michael’s completing the Path was the first stage in turning Kaine’s master plan, the Mortality Doctrine, into a reality.

And the takeover has already begun.

I have often found that the second book within a trilogy is written purely as a filler between the first book and the last book. That was not the case with The Rule of Thoughts.

I devoured The Rule of Thoughts a lot quicker than I did with The Eye of Minds but, I think that it because I have now become invested in this trilogy and the characters that are a part of it.

Overall, I have come to the conclusion that, in my opinion, Dashner’s cannot write a bad book. I cannot wait to finally get my hands on The Game of Lives and see how this trilogy comes to an end.
