The domed city of Evanescence is in ruins. With nowhere to go, prodigy hacker Ellani “Ella” Drexel and a small band of survivors flee to the Undertunnel below their city.
To escape the wasteland she unknowingly created.
But sanctuary is hard to find. With malfunctioning androids and angry rebels at their backs, the group hopes to press on for the neighboring city of Cadence. But Ella’s chosen path is challenging…life-threatening, even. Worse, the boy she loves is acting distant, and not at all like the person she first met in Nexis.
But then Ella learns a secret…and it changes everything.
Ella knows she needs to turn back and make a stand to reclaim her home. She’s determined to bring a new—and better—life to all who’ve suffered.
Or die trying.
5 stars: "If you enjoy dystopian type books, I am certain that you'll enjoy reading this book and well the whole series. It's well written and well thought out. The description and the imagery toppled with a fascinating storyline pulls the reader right in." -Annie Wallace, Just One More Chapter
4.5 stars: "Redux is as much of a page-turner as Nexis, but the adventures are all in the real world and all of the decisions have life and death consequences, unlike playing the game Nexis, where a character can be killed, but will live to play a different game." -Sascha, Sascha Darlington's Microcosm Explained
5 stars: "This book was an emotional roller coaster ride and I enjoyed every minute of it. All the ups, downs, twists, and turns. A.L. Davroe writes in a way that you feel like you are actually there with the characters." -Heather, Goodreads Reviewer
4 stars: "[T]he writing style is still just as fantastic as the first, and I read this book quickly- within a day, and it was tough to stop reading at all." -Olivia Farr, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "The side story of the romance provides a good dollop of teenage drama and angst along side their fight for survival. But what I loved most about this story is it doesn't really go where I expect, and it is full of surprises. In the end, it is clear that Ella is an amazing heroine and she is willing to make huge personal sacrifices for the great good." -Veronica, Wicked Reads
Praise for Nexis:
5 stars: "Love, love, LOVED this one!!" -Lisa Mandina, Lisa Loves Literature
5 stars: "I believe it comes as no surprise to all of you that I absolutely loved this book by now. Even if Sci-Fi isn't your usual go-to genre (and until now it wasn't mine either) I absolutely encourage everyone to give this book a chance. " -Emilia Grant, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "WOW. This book was exceptional!!" -Krystianna, Downright Dystopian
5 stars: "This isn't typical dystopian fiction, nor is it typical SF, though it has elements of both. This is about Ella's coming of age, with a hint of "Cinderella" to balance the trickster and enough truth to resonate while lessoning us all. Can't wait for the next book!" -Hilary, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "I just finished this book about 2 minutes ago. My heart is pounding. It is absolutely thrilling, beautifully written, and truly the novel for a trickster. I absolutely CANNOT wait for March 2017 when the sequel Redux is expected to come out!!" -Abby, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "This book blew my mind. I finished it in a little over 24 hours and that is only because I had to work. Still, I just couldn't keep away." -Lesia Joukova, Lesia's Tale
5 stars: "Oh. Em. Gee. This is one of my favorite books EVER." -Tally Catarina, Goodreads Reviewer
5 stars: "I could not put this one down, I constantly needed to know what was next and had questions I wanted answered at every turn. Nexis is just brilliantly weaved and creative throughout. " -Jena, Shortie Says
5 stars: "A.L. Davroe's world-building envisioned two separate universes: the domed cities offering protection from the almost inhabitable, war-ridden landscape, and a lifelike, virtual-reality MMORPG video game world the characters immerse themselves in. The descriptions in the book were perfectly written - not too much, but enough where I could imagine exactly how it looked." -Erica Chilson, Wicked Reads
