Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine talking about upcoming book releases we are excited for.
My choice this week is:
Nexis by A.L. Davroe
Release Date: 1st December 2015
“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 like the idea of the Natural Borns and the Genetic Altered living in the same city and i really like the idea of escaping into the virtual reality world when things get tough. I’m looking forward to finding out more about Nexis and if her father left her any surprises in this world.
What are your picks for this week?
Thanks for reading,
