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.
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.
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
