About the Book
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.
About the Author
A.L. (Amanda) Davroe writes both YA and adult speculative fiction. She prefers revisionist tales in paranormal, romance, Steampunk, and fantasy. She is the author of Salvation Station (adult psych horror), The City Steam Collection (adult psych horror), For Your Heart (YA Paranormal Romance) and her YA Sci-Fi novel, Nexis, is coming out with Entangled Publishing December 1, 2015!
By day, Amanda lives in Connecticut with her two feline hench-creatures and makes cheese. She's a terrible blusher, has a weak spot for cuddly animals, loves Laffy Taffy and Cadbury MiniEggs, and she's a huge advocate of alternative healing methods. Amanda also wears purple shoes and corsets...Though not always in the same ensemble. She's a Capricorn, a Hufflepuff, a bit gothic, and a few nuggets short of a Happy Meal.
A.L. Davroe’s latest release, Nexis, is a fast-paced dystopian, science fiction, fantasy-adventure, romance novel that teens will love. In a world where you are told what to do and how to act, Ella is hidden away, so that everyone thinks she is dead, after a tragic accident that kills her father and leaves her body hurt and partially ruined. In her locked away room, it is here she must enter her father’s renowned virtual reality game to discover a secret he has left behind for her. This action packed story will have readers on their toes, wondering what will take place, whether in Ella’s reality world or within the world of the game, Nexis. With an enticing plot line and entertaining characters, teens will not be able to put this story down. I would recommend this novel to readers, especially teens, that enjoy futuristic, science fiction, action packed, romance stories.
