Scott Reintgen made a major impression on YA sci-fi lovers with his fierce debut novel, Nyxia, but there’s even more to come.
The novel follows Emmett Atwater, one of several teens chosen for a cutthroat mission to harvest a versatile new element from a recently discovered planet, Eden. Emmett needs to make it to Eden to receive his payout from the Babel Corporation and provide for his ailing mother, but getting to the planet isn’t a simple task.
Nyxia is the first in a trilogy and now, we have some exciting new information on its sequel!
The cover and synopsis for Nyxia Unleashed cropped up on Goodreads, giving us a chilling new look at what’s to come as the Babel crew makes their way to the surface of Eden and meets the native Adamites.
Getting to Eden brought Emmett and his crewmates one step closer to their promised fortune. But surviving Eden may be the biggest reward of all. Discover book two in the trilogy Marie Lu called, “a high-octance thriller.”
Emmett Atwater thought Babel’s game sounded easy. Get points. Get paid. Go home. But it didn’t take long for him to learn that Babel’s competition was full of broken promises, none darker or more damaging than the last one.
Now Emmett and the rest of the Genesis survivors must rally and forge their own path through a new world. Their mission from Babel is simple: extract nyxia, the most valuable material in the universe, and play nice with the indigenous Adamite population.
But Emmett and the others quickly realize they are caught between two powerful forces—Babel and the Adamites—with clashing desires. Will the Genesis team make it out alive before it’s too late?
We also got a release date for Nyxia Unleashed: July 17, 2018! You can pre-order it now via Amazon.
