Nyxia, by Scott Reintgen
“Grabs you from the first line and never lets go.”–Marie Lu
We know what you’re thinking. “Marie Lu? You mean, the author of Warcross, that book you guys were raving about just yesterday? That Marie Lu?” Yep, that one. What better reason to choose Nyxia as today’s sale pick? But it wasn’t the only reason.
With 2,356 readers weighing in, the 4.11 rating on Goodreads didn’t hurt either.
We love a good space adventure, but all too often the space bit overshadows the actual adventure. Not true with Nyxia. The people come first in this one–and characters lie at the heart of any good story. We’re excited to see it discounted so heavily. We think you will be, too.
FROM THE PUBLISHER:
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
