Nyxia by Scott Reingten was such a wonderful, inspiring and interesting read. I have never read anything of the like before. Nyxia is not only a story of friendship, hardship and corruption, it is also a story that shows how people grow and succumb to their situation and how some will not give up who they are no matter the price. I literally devoured this book.

Not only the world was intriguing. It was this mix of sci-fi-ish elements combined with the competition that creates a deadly situation in which even the victors are damned in a way.

“Emmet 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.

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 planet Eden- a planet that Babel has kept hidden- where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has the 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.”

 

The struggle in this book was so real and captivating, I felt like I was the one fighting for my life, my future and my sanity.  Babel Corp. doesn’t play games and who isn’t partaking will forfeit their chance of not only winning, but securing a chance of happiness for their whole family.  There isn’t much world-building as the whole story takes place in a space ship. But the characters are three-dimensional, emotional, torn and desperate. This book tells the story of friendship, humanity and the will to survive. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to read something refreshingly new and mysterious that has the potential to be on your top five list 2017.

Hey there! My name is Klara and I love reading and to share my thoughts about the things I read. I know how hard it can be to choose your next read. So I realized that I should start my own Blog not only tell the people out there what new literature is worth taking a look at. But also what other books are out there and have been long forgotten ;))
