Waiting on Wednesday is hosted each week by Breaking the Spine and lets us spotlight a book that we are eagerly waiting to be released.
This weeks Waiting On Wednesday is Nexis by A.L Davroe!
Publication: December 1st 2015 by Entangled Teen
Summary from Goodreads:
In the domed city of Evanescence, appearance is everything. A Natural Born amongst genetically-altered Aristocrats, all Ella ever wanted was to be like everyone else. Augmented, sparkling, and perfect. Then…the crash. Devastated by her father’s death and struggling with her new physical limitations, Ella is terrified to learn she is not just alone, but little more than a prisoner.
Her only escape is to lose herself in Nexis, the hugely popular virtual reality game her father created. In Nexis she meets Guster, a senior player who guides Ella through the strange and compelling new world she now inhabits. He offers Ella guidance, friendship…and something more. Something that allows her to forget about the “real” world, and makes her feel whole again.
But Nexis isn’t quite the game everyone thinks it is.
And it’s been waiting for Ella.
That moment when a book synopsis features the names of two of your favorite bands. Cue Evanescence and Guster montages… if you don’t know who they are, shame on you – look them up. I’m a huge fan of dystopian novels if you haven’t picked up on that already. I love everything about them, and even though most of them are the same in some way, shape or form, I keep coming back for more. Nexis is no exception, this book sounds amazing! I mean, unbiased music obsession aside, I think the whole concept of a virtual reality game sounds pretty damn sweet.
