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.
So after the explosive and frankly what the hell ending to Nexis, Redux is finally here! Nexis left me with more questions than answers due to Davroe’s cunning plot twist so I couldn’t wait to get my hands on Redux and dig in.
Fans of the Tricksters series will be delighted to know that Redux picks up straight where Nexis left off. Ella completed her mission; she released a virus on the city of Evanescence, only it didn’t bring peace, it brought war. With the city in ruins and it’s people either dead or on the run Ella must find a way to save her home and loved ones.
Ella continued to grow in Redux, I loved that she was able to show weakness and come back stronger. She’s able to learn from her mistakes and continues to sacrifice herself to save her people. When Ella finds herself with the rebels and Disfavoured who live outside of Evanescence, she’s determined to join forces, take charge and ultimately take back her city.
What I really loved about this book was the romance, after the mystery and intrigue of book one I was left with some suspicions and a whole lotta’ hope. And let me tell you, Davroe delivers! I was very happy with what happened and thrilled for Ella to finally have some happiness. The romance was slow and consuming and I found myself flying through the pages.
Redux was an excellent follow up and readers will enjoy this from start to finish. Davroe weaves are brilliantly complex plot in a unique dystopian world. I am so excited to see what Davroe comes up with next as I'm sad to see this amazing series go.
