Nyxia | Scott Reintgen
A high-octane thriller . . . Nyxia grabs you from the first line and never lets go. Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Young Elites series Every life has a price in this sci-fi thriller that has the nonstop action of The Maze Runner and the high-stakes space setting of Illuminae. This is the first in a new three-book series called the Nyxia Triad that will take a group of broken teens to the far reaches of the universe and force them to decide what theyre willing to risk for a lifetime of fortune. Emmett Atwater isnt just leaving Detroit; hes 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 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 Edena planet that Babel has kept hiddenwhere they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe. But Babels 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 wont forever compromise what it means to be human.

Done Nyxia! What a great read! Loved the sci fi atmosphere with the element of competition! No time for a break though, my stack beside my bed keeps growing.

MrsBabki Did you not find the competition long and drawn out? 5mo

I thought this was an interesting concept. It's like hunger games but their actually all training to do a job. Now to read the second book!

Is this book "Hunger games in space"? Yeah, probably. But it's so exciting that I just couldn't put it down and when I ended I actually screamed "whaaaat?" and had to check the next installment. So, if you like actiin and adventure, a few diverse characters and Hunger Games, check it out.

Wow, it's only May and we are in the 90s with HIGH humidity. It's miserable out! In other news, I finished this one last night. It was a good book set in space. Nothing overly spectacular but I enjoyed it. Had some similar feels to Hunger Games, but in outer space. I do want to read the next one to find out what happens next on Eden.

ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled What city are you in? Sounds like the weather in Baton Rouge where I am! 😓🥵 7mo
tracey38 @ErickaS_Flyleafunfurled I'm in NC, the Raleigh area. Too much for just being May! This is July weather! I can't really take the heat/humidity even though I was born and raised in the south 7mo

Evening snack (maybe overindulged a bit) and the end of this book. Really wish I was able to read more than I have lately. I could use the distraction from life and the world.

So I had no idea what I wanted to read next. I decided to start this one again as it seems like a quick read. I haven't read many books set in space but the few I have read I enjoyed. I'm about a third of the way through and it seems like a fun story so far.

4.5 ⭐️s. I believe the audio version is what deserves that extra half star-- excellent narration.

As for the story, I loved our protagonist, all of the characters with their different (If maybe a little stereotypical at times) personalities, the challenge, the setting, the goals, etc. I was totally pulled in. And I did immediately start book 2...

bookcollecter Is this somehow related to the ancient Greek Goddess NYX (sometimes called NOX)? 1y
Avanders @bookcollecter not in any way I can tell (yet - it's a trilogy) 😁 I highly doubt it.. nyxia is not a person... 1y
bookcollecter Oh...what is it? 1y
Avanders I don't think it's much of a spoiler, but I'm spoiling it just in case... it's an alien substance that can do alllll kinds of things. The premise of the book is that the recruits are flying to this other planet to help procure nyxia, but not all of them can go... 1y

Others have compared this book to a sci-fi Hunger Games, and other than having slightly more than one winner at the end, that‘s pretty much what it is. I loved the entire premise from the start and was pulled into the story immediately, which hasn‘t happened a whole lot lately. Nothing like “coming-of-age“ in outer space! Loved it - 4.5.

I am very much looking forward to @DuckOfDoom 's #sfftbrchallege. It is very reminiscent of last year's #beatthebacklist challenge. This year's beat the back list challenge was no where near as fun and the girl running it is pulling back and doing no more.

I love the guides (similar to the #booked2018) that let you find a category to match your book too. Very excited to participate.

DuckOfDoom Thanks for doing this fantastic break-up of the prompts! I can't find the time to make something with a beautiful background, it's looking so much better than what I posted 😀 1y

Both my 14 year old son and my husband really enjoyed this book and can‘t wait for the next one to come out. Me, I enjoyed the first half, but found myself skimming through the last bit. My boys give it a thumbs up, I give it a so so. But since this is a YA book, and my son is 14....he gets the deciding vote👍

This is between a pick and a so-so for me. Emmett joins a group of teens on a spaceship set for planet Eden. Out of 10 only 8 will go. Between rounds of training exercise, Emmett falls into a camaraderie w/most of his fellow recruits & hostilities w/ a few others. But as they compete for a spot, Emmett realizes that things may not be as they seem.

I️ enjoyed the world building & diverse characters, but felt the plot moved slowly at time.

Wow, this book was everything a book about space and competition should be. It stared a boy named Emmett and he got chosen to be taken to a new planet only if he proved he was strong, clever, and brave enough to beat other competitors just like himself. If he won he would get riches, medical help for his family, financial stability, and the chance to explore a new planet. There was fierce competition and only a chosen few would win it all.
