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 final one.
Now Emmett and the rest of the Genesis survivors must rally and forge their own path through a dangerous new world. Their mission from Babel is simple: extract nyxia, the most valuable material in the universe, and win over the indigenous Adamite population.
But Emmett and the others quickly realize they are caught between two powerful forces--Babel and the Adamites--with clashing agendas. Will the Genesis team make it out alive?
'Brilliant concept meets stellar execution in this fast-paced deep space adventure. I was hooked from page one' Victoria Schwab, No.1 New York Times Bestselling Author
'And just like that, I'm leaving Earth behind . . .'
Emmett Atwater is just a poor kid plucked from the streets of Detroit.
But now he and nine teenagers like him are travelling to a distant planet aboard the Babel corporation's lightship.
Before they get there, they are told, two of them will be eliminated.
The eight who make it will land on an alien world, where they will hunt for Nyxia, the most extraordinary substance in the universe.
But first Emmett must endure frightening tests, rivalry with his fellow chosen ones and the fear that Babel aren't telling the truth.
Because if Babel aren't, they'll be trapped, light years from home.
And all alone . . .

Scott Reintgen has spent his career teaching English and Creative Writing in diverse urban communities in the United States. The hardest lesson he learned was that inspiration isn't equally accessible for everyone. So he set out to write a novel for the front-row sleepers and back-row dreamers of his classrooms. He hopes that his former students see themselves, vibrant and on the page, in characters like Emmett. Nyxia and Nyxia Unleashed are the first two novels in The Nyxia Triad.
