Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

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. @goodreads

Wow! This book was pretty freaking awesome!

Since it doesn't come out until Sept. 2017, I'm going to keep it short and no spoilers.

Emmett is one of 10 teens picked to go to the planet Eden. They are going to meet a new species there and try to set up a good life on Eden. They have some work to do there. They have to mine a substance called, Nyxia. It's pretty cool stuff too.

The kids are put through some rigorous training like fighting, terrain issues, work they have to do there and a few other things. They have to be prepared for life on Eden.

The kids are scored daily on the trials they perform and that will tell who all gets in.

I loved some of the characters in the book and I can't really tell you which ones because some might die right? Just want to keep you on your toes!

The company they are working for, Babel Communications, are keeping secrets. Isn't that the way it always goes though? But the kids are in a race to see who can get to Eden at all costs. They will win a lot of money and their families will be set for life. I wonder if that's really true.

Some of the kids form some bonds even though they are competing against each other. Sometimes you need teamwork to get you to the top.

So, who ends up going and who goes home? Find out when you read the book.

I was so excited for this book and loved it. I'm looking forward to the next one already. I wonder what's going to happen?
