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-octane 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?

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.



5 Stars

” You either get the world you hope for or the world you fear”

Nyxia: Unleashed picks up right where Nyxia left off. Emmett has just escaped with his life after Babel made him fight one of his competitors for only one spot inside the pod heading to Eden. Now that he’s reached the planet he has no idea what he’s in for.

Once Emmett meets up with the rest of his crew members at the first base they are contracted to mine, they finally meet the Adamite’s. The crewmembers are broken up into three teams and will be placed with one Adamite who will help them navigate the area to the mining sites. During these days Emmett and his team learn about the history of the Adamite’s and share their diverse histories with them as a way of getting to know this new race and the planet they will be mining over the next year. It is through this process that they realize what they’ve been told is way off base from what is actually going on.

I love Emmett and Morning as a couple. At one point they are put in a situation where they have to trust each other more than anything in order to survive and during this scene they discover more about what the Nyxia can do. Together they discover a multitude of secrets Babel has kept from them and work as a leaders of the teams in order to come up with a plan to get off of Eden and back home.

As each one of Babel’s secrets become revealed Emmett is forced to look over his shoulder because one of the crewmembers has put a death warrant out against him. When she decides to leave and align herself with the female Adamite’s things start to get really crazy. While all this is happening down on Eden another crewmember has made an escape back to Babel in order to get inside information on what is really going on from up on the space station.

A war is coming. By the end of this second installment people will be dead, alliances will be made, and the truth behind all their training is revealed when they are forced to fight. The only question is who’s team are they fighting on?

“We’re weapons. They made us this way.”


About Scott

ScottScott Reintgen was always a back-row dreamer. As early as kindergarten, teachers noticed his tendency to stare out of classroom windows and disappear to more interesting elsewheres. In high school, he began laboring away on the opening chapter of his first fantasy novel. One of his favorite English teachers agreed to read the pages and the very next day she switched him (illegally) out of Spanish and into a Creative Writing class. The story got tossed eventually, but he never lost the confidence he was given by that single act of empowering faith.

Convinced he would one day be a writer, Scott spent most of college and graduate school investing in the world of literature. This eventually led to a career teaching English and Creative Writing in North Carolina. He strongly believes that every student who steps into his classroom has the right to see themselves, vibrant and victorious and on the page. It’s his hope to encourage a future full of diverse writers. As he’s fond of reminding his students, “You have a story to tell and you’re the only one who can tell it.”

As for his own writing, Scott continues to follow in the footsteps of his favorite authors. It was Tolkien who once wrote, “The fairy gold (too often) turns to withered leaves when it is brought away. All I can ask is that you, knowing all these things, will receive my withered leaves, as a token at least that my hand once held a little of the gold.” And Scott hopes his books are a trail of withered leaves that might lead readers to the bright elsewheres through which he constantly finds himself wandering.

He currently lives in North Carolina with his wife, Katie, and family.

Note: I went with this website domain instead of http://www.scottreintgen.com because, let’s be honest, my name’s really hard to pronounce. Rather than make people suffer through trying to spell it every time, I thought this would be easier!
