Nexis, by A. L. Davroe
We don’t remember seeing this cover before today, but that’s what we love most about book sales. The new gems we discover! This one’s a virtual reality gaming read, in the vein of Ready Player One or Warcross, with added themes of genetically altered aristocrats, and a main character who’s just a plain-old unaltered human, muddling through life like the rest of us.
Reviewers are saying it’s more than they expected, and we can’t wait to try it. At $0.99 instead of the usual $5.99, we couldn’t resist!
From the Publisher:
In the domed city of Evanescence, appearance is everything. A Natural Born among 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 when their separate worlds collide, Ella will have to choose between love and survival. Because Nexis isn’t quite the game everyone thinks it is.
And it’s been waiting for Ella.
