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.
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?
Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen (The Nyxia Triad #2)
They were just kids trying to make a better life for their families in a dystopian world. They gave up everything to work for Babel, mining nyxia, the most valuable material in the world. They were taught to survive against all odds and to stop at nothing to achieve their goals, but when Emmett, Morning and the rest finally reach their destination, they will uncover the lies they were fed and learn to survive, thrive and trust in one another as they come face to face with the indigenous Adamites.
What they didn’t understand was that they were merely pawns in a battle pitting Babel’s greed against the Imago (Adamites’) survival. But they are determined to become a force to be reckoned with. But, who can they trust? When in doubt, do the right thing and above all survive with honor. Once again, the hubris of an all-powerful corporation underestimates the ones they lord over, especially when those individuals have the intensity of teens who believe in themselves.
NYXIA UNLEASHED by Scott Reintgen is a literary powerhouse of action and adventure, emotional turmoil and determination. Follow incredibly strong characters with the flames of youth raging like an inferno as they learn to work together, share their strong points and form an unbreakable bond of honor. Non-stop intrigue, secrets revealed and daring to go headlong into the unknown!
Amazing world building puts us on another planet. There will be bloodshed, violence, pasts to reconcile and bonds that become unbreakable.
NYXIA was phenomenal, but Scott Reintgen has set the bar even higher with NYXIA UNLEASHED! Hang on to your hearts, because this series will steal your very soul!
