Waiting on Wednesday #32: Universe + Fortune!Nyxia (The Nyxia Triad, #1) by Scott Reintgen

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 they're 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.

Leaving Earth? 10 recruits who must “earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden?” TELL ME MORE TELL ME MORE! Also, I am quite curious whether the author specifically picked the names Babel & Eden as a way of foreshadowing. Of course, there’s no way to know unless I read the book, and so I must read it! Also, THAT LAST SENTENCE MAKES ME REALLY REALLY CURIOUS (and a little afraid) because apparently some of the options given to the MC compromise humanity?!?

Have you read this book? What did you think? If not, is it on your TBR? Let me know in the comments below!
