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 everyone thinks it is.


About the Author:

A.L. (Amanda) Davroe writes both YA and adult speculative fiction. She prefers revisionist tales in paranormal, romance, Steampunk, and fantasy. She is the author of Salvation Station (adult psych horror), The City Steam Collection (adult psych horror), For Your Heart (YA Paranormal Romance) and her YA Sci-Fi novel, Nexis, is coming out with Entangled Publishing December 1, 2015!

By day, Amanda lives in Connecticut with her two feline hench-creatures and makes cheese. She’s a terrible blusher, has a weak spot for cuddly animals, loves Laffy Taffy and Cadbury MiniEggs, and she’s a huge advocate of alternative healing methods. Amanda also wears purple shoes and corsets…Though not always in the same ensemble. She’s a Capricorn, a Hufflepuff, a bit gothic, and a few nuggets short of a Happy Meal.

  1. Thanks so much for joining the NEXIS blog tour, Valerie!


  2. Thanks for the chance! And I think maybe I'd make an Alt to my voice so I don't sound so terrible when I sing lol :)

  3. If I could change anything permanently it would be my weight! Lol

  4. I would change my rib cage. I have a condition that causes my sternum to be concaved and my ribs to protrude. It becomes very uncomfortable at times.

  5. I would love to be able to add wings to be able to fly!

  6. I would like a mod for a thinner body. =P Thanks so much for the giveaway!

  7. Thank you for the chance! Also, this sounds like a unique novel! I'm kind of excited to try it out.

    If I could have a permanent mod I would have my face altered so that its a little more symmetric. The older I get the more obvious how Joker like my appearance is: one side is smaller than the other. Or, for a less serious change, I'd alter my singing voice!

  8. If I was younger I might be tempted. Kind of used to myself the way I am now. LOL

  9. My weight....thanks for the opportunity.

  10. My lazy eye drives me crazy. Mostly for times like when I am driving.

  11. I would change my weight.

  12. sounds fabulous! I'd love to be taller and more physically fit :) thanks for sharing!

  13. I don't really care to change anything about myself, but I'd probably just make myself taller.
