Summary of the Book:
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.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. I am a gamer myself and ths just took that love to a whole new level. I like Ella and Guster that are complex and compelling characters. It all starts with the loss of her father and the game that he created. The Nexis. That is how she meets Guster and he is top player of the game. He takes her hand is going to help her learn the ins and outs of the game. They start out just player and progress to friend and maybe more. It is her only escape from her reality. There are a lot of twists and turns and that is what keeps you invested until the last page. My heart was beating hard most of the way through the book.
My Rating of the Book: 5 Stars
