My Review: Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen

452D094E-6678-40B1-B472-0B4DC5558A53Getting 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-octance 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?

MY REVIEW:

Could Scott Reintgen really write a book as good as Nyxia? Would Nyxia Unleashed suffer from “second book syndrome”? Or would Nyxia Unleashed be just as good, if not better than Nyxia?

These are the questions we had ever since we heard about the upcoming “Nyxia Unleashed” release. Well, guess what…Nyxia Unleashed was TERRIFIC!!! It was EXTRAORDINARY!!! If you loved Nyxia you’re going to LOVE Nyxia Unleashed!!!
The story begins where the kids land on the planet, Magnia. The protagonist in this, Emmett, is such an amazing character! In fact both main characters, Emmett & Morning (I totally ship them) were amazing main characters! Morning was my favorite character. But I like many of the characters in this story! They all come from very different backgrounds, that have made them who they are. They develop friendships and come to rely on each other like a family. Scott Reintgen did an excellent job with his characters.
But he also did an amazing job with world building. Being on another planet, seeing the wildlife, it’s dangers and it’s beauty. It was all fascinating. Actually learning more about all the things Nyxia could do was fascinating too.
I’m trying not to say too much here. So I’ll just say, It’s a wonderful YA SciFi book! I highly recommend it!!! Now I’ll be eagerly anticipating book 3!!!
