#BookTour: Nexis (Tricksters, #1) by @ALDavroe #Review #Giveaway



Nexis
Nexis (Tricksters, #1) by A.L. Davroe Release Date: Dec. 1, 2015 Genre: YA Sci-Fi / YA Science Fiction Published by: Entangled Teen

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.



This book reminded me of another book called Elusion where people go to a virtual world to escape.  This one was pretty inventive and really felt like a wonderful blend of cyborg tech and a girl who is all natural.  In the world everyone dreams of being perfect.  Each character was amazing.  Nothing felt rushed etc.  This book is for those who love video games and sci fi.

  Nexis-Teaser2


  Read below for an excerpt from Nexis: Excerpt from Nexis, Chapter 5 (pgs 31-32)   Sighing, I stare down at the headband until a shadow falls over me. “That’s quite the contraption.” I close my eyes. It’s Zane. Great, he saw the spectacle, too. Will my shame never cease? Well, there goes the courting. He’ll never want to be with a pariah like me now. “It was a stupid idea to wear it.” He steps to the side and sits next to the headband. He picks it up, turns it over between his fingers. “Was it? I think it’s pretty revolutionary, actually.” “That’s my point. If I could do that with a simple holo-mask, then anyone could.” Zane purses his lips. He knows I’m right. If I was able to program a mask to make my face look just as Modified and Altered as any Aristocrat’s, then what’s to stop one of the Disfavored from doing it? A mask like that undermines the system. Eventually he smiles, apprehensive, and meets my eyes. “Well, they don’t have Programmers as talented and ingenious as you out there. So it’s a good thing you’re on the side of the Aristocracy, isn’t it?” I snort and look away. “I’m a threat to them.” He places a hand on my knee, and it makes my stomach go aflutter, despite my bad mood. “It’s good that you’re aware of it.” My floating stomach sinks, and I shake my head with a bitter scoff. “Is that supposed to comfort me?” His fingers tighten, drawing my leg open so that our knees touch and he leans closer to me. “Not at all,” he whispers in a spine-tingling purr, eyes alight with secret sparkle. “It should scare you. It should scare you and enliven you. It should make you want to start a fire. Because you can.” Confused by his words and what he’s doing to my body, I stare at him for a long time. He sounds like Dad, spouting nonsense like this all the time. But, unlike Dad, Zane has a wild and dangerous charisma on his side. His touch and tone stir my insides, make me want to get up and run, make me want to do what he asks me to do.
