Nyxia (The Nyxia Triad #1)
Nyxia is an amazing piece bridging teen and adult Sci-Fi. A huge piece of this story is its unique cast of characters. Every character has a story and it comes back to haunt them. Combine that with the fact that they are given the ability to control a futuristic power source and told that not all of them can make it to their otherworldly planet. What is there not to love? Our group consists of a rag tag group of youngsters (led by Emmet) who fight in a viscous and a consequential trial to be allowed to mine the resource called Nyxia. All of this takes place in the best place for a book to take place, Space. Mysteries, betrayal, and maybe a little love is what your going to find in this amazing first of three books.
“A high-octane thriller . . . Nyxia grabs you from the first line and never lets go.” —Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling 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.
Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten 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
