Publisher's Summary

“A high-octane thriller... Nyxia grabs you from the first line and never lets go.” (Marie Lu, number-one New York Times best-selling author of Warcross)

Every life has a price in this sci-fi thriller - the first in a trilogy - that has the nonstop action of The Maze Runner and the high-stakes space setting of Illuminae. What would you be willing to risk for a lifetime of fortune?

Emmett Atwater isn't just leaving Detroit; he's leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family. 

Forever. 

Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of 10 recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden - a planet that Babel has kept hidden - where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe. 

But Babel's ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won't forever compromise what it means to be human. 

The 100 meets Illuminae in this high-octane sci-fi thriller.” (Bustle)

What the critics say

"Both curious and suspicious at every turn, [Emmett] is an ideal narrator, and a sequel can't come soon enough." ( The Bulletin)
"Emmett's self-deprecation, wit, and ability to see the good in others will keep listeners riveted and eager for the next volume in this planned trilogy." ( PW)

Awesome

I thought the book and the narrator were awesome. I can't wait for the next book to come out to see what happens next. If you liked Red Rising and The Hunger Games, then you'll enjoy this book.

A sci-fi teen/YA book that is very exciting!

Nyxia
By: Scott Reintgen
Narrated by: Sullivan Jones, Dominic Hoffman
A very original sci-fi teen/YA book that takes 10 teens to outer space to meet aliens and mine a new element that is remarkable! The teens and their families are offered a fortune for going. As the story unfolds the reader finds out many truths about the mission that the teens didn't know at the beginning! Pretty awesome!
Narration is fantastic!

Start of a great series.

This is such a wonderful book. It's a young adult book but wow it doesn't fall into the tired tropes. Atleast not really. The story characters and pacing had me finishing it within two days. I could not stop listening. There was a issue of a love intrest being introduced in the 11th hour but other then that it's a perfect start to a series.

I probably won't read the second one...

I saw this was in a YA book box and the description sounded awesome, so I went for it. I was disappointed and finally got into this book (a tiny bit) about 2/3 of the way in. It took me ten times as long to get through than an audiobook normally would. It's hard to listen to while multitasking since so much keeps happening, but it also feels like fluff. I couldn't imagine what the writer was telling, not for lack of imagination, but maybe for a slight boredom, or feeling no relation to the main character. I am not the best person to judge this genre since I prefer fantasy over sci-fi. Also, this book made me realize that I rarely read or listen to books from a male's perspective. The narrator reads the book and doesn't do other voices for characters so it's easy to get confused for who is saying what. I liked it okay, it has good character development and lots of action, but I I had a hard time getting into it and didn't love it. I more heard the words than had it play out in my mind, like I normally would. But again, I am not the target audience. I would have no desire to do the challenges, and with all the desire the characters have to go to Eden, besides money, Eden sounds like a horrible place. Did I miss something? I normally wouldn't finish a book I have a hard time getting through but I felt like something more had to happen... then it did in the last hour and ended with a huge cliff hanger.

Good one!

This book is futuristic space Battle Royale but a little less brutal. Good story line, good character arcs, and lots layers. The narrator is did a very good job even though I’m super picky about Audible Books. Not breathy and doesn’t try to do very high pitch women voices. Definitely an easy listen! Good ending!
