“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Breaking The Spine, that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re excited about and anticipating the release of! I decided to take part in the series here on my blog!
This weeks book is:
Nexis by A.L. Davroe
Expected Publication Date: 12/1/15
Goodreads Synopsis: 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.
I have to be honest, I am not really a fan of the cover of this but the synopsis makes up for it I think. I really enjoy the aspect of a virtual reality game in books so this one sounds like it will be right up my alley. Based on the synopsis it sounds like there might be something fishy with Nexis so I am interested to find out what that is all about. Hopefully this turns out to be a good one!
