    One thought on “Nyxia”

    1. A high octane thriller with a fully realized, complex cast and twists at every turn Scott Reintgen knows exactly how to hook you into a story from the first line and keep you flying through the pages until you ve reached the wild ending

    2. well, sometimes it lasts in love sometimes you end up two starring the book insteadi am a huge fan of space both outer and personal and i feel like nasa should strongly consider volunteer applicants even if they have no prior experience and just think space is cool and want to be hurtled into the moon because i really think it s time gravity lets go of me and i start floating above cities and clouds to space and beyondso you understand why it came as a shock to me that i did not love a book abou [...]

    3.

    5. That cover All the heart eyes Honestly, I didn t even read the description before hitting that request button faster than I could blink I had seen some fantastic early reviews for Nyxia and I m a bonafide, card carrying member of the judge a book by it s cover club I know, that s terrible for a book blogger to admit but it s the truth and there you go I ve been finding the young adult space exploration novels a bit hit or miss lately I m really drawn to the idea of them but sometimes the executi [...]

    6. 2.99 5 stars Why d they choose us We re all broken They picked us because we re broken Thank you, Netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review It doesn t feel right to give this book three stars, but I can t bring myself to give it two stars I don t know what it deserves and I m just so conflicted right now Maybe if created half star ratings I wouldn t have this kind of inner turmoil There has been so much praise thrown at this book that I m wondering if I even read the same [...]

    9. 4.5 StarsOverview When you look back, it won t be mercy you regret Taking place in a near future where mankind discovered a habitable planet, a corporation creates a challenge to send young adults who will mine a mysterious new element known as Nyxia Ten teenagers are recruited into the program, though only eight will make it through Scott Reintgen s debut is a wonderfully introspective story that puts great twists on tropes made popular by the Hunger Games esque dystopians that surged a few yea [...]

    10. 4.5 stars, rounding up, for this YA SF adventure, just published on Sept 12, 2017 Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature A group of teenagers, engaged in a deadly serious game like competition Life changing fortunes are at stake, if not life itself An ominously secretive corporation pulling the strings.Many of the elements in Nyxia are familiar, but Scott Reintgen combines them with some unusual plot features a worldwide cast that is primarily of minority races and nationalities, an a [...]

    11. 1.75 stars.I honestly didn t expect much from this book and yet somehow it still managed to disappoint me because apparently whenever em and I start a buddy read, the universe decides it s time to fuck us over I didn t outright hate it, but I spent almost the entire time I was reading this bored out of my mind I just have such apathy towards this book that I don t even want to write a review, but just because my bitter ass can t resist the chance to be salty I ll leave you with a mini rant.Nyxia [...]

    12. RELEASE DAY SEPT 12, 2017 I really liked this Is it too early to ask when the next one is coming out Review also found at The Paranormal Paladin.Emmett Atwater is one of ten teens picked by a multi billion dollar corporation called Babel Communications to travel through space to a planet to help mine a new, amazing element metal compound called nyxia There is actually a reason why it can only be teenagers, but spoiler Once the paperwork has been signed and they are onboard, Bable pulls a fast on [...]

    13. 2.5 starsI file this book under M for meh This book was fun, to say the least It could be easily read in one sitting Competition at least for me is always entertaining to read about and I don t think I ll ever get bored of this trope However, fun isn t enough.When the Babel Corporation chooses Emmet to go to a new planet, he doesn t think twice about accepting their offer After all, the 50 000 each month for the rest of his life isn t something he can refuse, especially that he s family is very [...]

    14. Emmett Atwater had no clue why he d been recruited by the Babel Corporation but now that he has heard their proposal he knows there is no way he could pass the opportunity by Babel has recruited ten teens from around the world and offered them a contract with so many promises and opportunities involved Emmett knows it would help his family tremendously The contract is offered to get the recruits to leave Earth and travel to a distant planet called Eden in order to mine for Nyxia The inhabitants [...]

    15. Wow Where do I start I really did enjoy this book At first, I was REALLY confused as what to expect but wow I didn t expect this I loved the writing I loved the dialogue, internal and external I found the main character detailed, deep and interesting I really enjoyed the idea of this training and scoring sections of the book I think it added something a lover of The Hunger Games or Harry Potter house points would love as an adult I did have an issue with the NUMBER of characters First, there wer [...]

    16. 4.5 stars Red Rising Fans I have a YA recommendation for you.As someone who has admitted to having trouble with young adult books lately, it should come with some extra weight that I loved Nyxia It had a fun concept, fantastic competitions, and a page turning story that promises even in the books to come So, personal endorsements aside, I think it s important to know what you re signing up for with Nyxia All the advertising I ve seen for it describes a gritty Hunger Games in space read that ini [...]

    17. DNF at 37% There s legitimately nothing wrong with this, it is is just so not a me book It s the kind of book I would have obsessed over in grade six In fact, it reminds me most of Gone by Michael Grant, a series I was obsessed with for years same compelling plot, same fairly interesting but slightly too large cast of characters, same towards the lower end of YA writing style I feel like I m going to finish it and give it a solid three That might be fine with a standalone novel, but this is the [...]

    18. Updated Review Thanks to Random House Children s Crown Books for providing this ARC via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review We can be kings and queens, sure, but only if we bow first How far would you go for a chance at financial freedom and the perks associated with a secured lifestyle What lines would you cross if it meant free health care and access to the best and most advanced treatments in perpetuity for you and your family That s the question our MC, Emmett Atwater, and his fellow [...]

    19. File this under F for fantastic This is like the Hunger Games in space Those who know me, know that I often don t do sci fi unless it s very character driven This book ticks all the right boxes for me.The main characters competitors are all underdogs, minorities from impoverished backgrounds Emmett, our young protagonist is very cool while the others are well drawn too Babel, the corporation behind the trip, clearly can t be trusted and I m pretty sure the chosen teams are going to be in for som [...]

    20. I opened this ARC yesterday to glance at it I have other books going and absolutely fell into it And a debut What a stunning book I was going to avoid it, as I am tired of teenage gladiatorial books with sloppy worldbuilding that only exists to throw the teens into a pit to fight themselves bloody between swooning and angsting over their Lurve Triangle but I stumbled on a reference to there being only one white character in this book, and I had to read it.I am so glad I did Make no mistake, the [...]

    21. 2.5 stars Call me old fashioned, but when I read a book about space, I tend to expect it to be space y This kind of felt like Hunger Games or Divergent in space, except from the fact that a lot of the time you could completely forget that they even were in space and they could easily have been just training on Earth, in the desert, or in the Slytherin common room Contrast this with space books such as Illuminae or Defy the Stars, where there was no doubt that the action was taking place In Space [...]

    22. I am having a hard time rating this one because I think it would be a great book for young kids, but it didn t work for me personally I admit that I m not the target audience, but some YA novels can be just as entertaining to adults as non YA This just isn t one of those, IMO I think the audience for this one is Middle School In that age group, this book would be amazing.It is very much like Red Rising Jr The being in space thing isn t that important in this first book because the entire story t [...]

    23. You can also read my review on WP anisabookreviews.wordpress 2017 0A black hole a region of space from which nothing, including light, can escape It absorbs all your light and reflects nothing What are you then An extraordinary opportunity presents itself to a teenager, hungry to discover and work on the planet Eden After all, the compensation would set his struggling family for life Emmett is one of the ten selected by the conglomerate Babel Communications to embark on a mining expedition of a [...]

    24. In a word Wow This is by far the most ethnically inclusive mainstream YA sci fi book I ve ever read It tells the story of an African American young man named Emmett who is recruited by a mysterious corporation and promised a LOT of money for completing a top secret mission on a distant planet The fine print while en route, he ll have to compete against nine other recruits all from different countries in a series of physically and mentally excruciating tasks to secure one of eight spots on the fi [...]

    25. GOD DAMN IT I NEED BOOK TWO RIGHT NOW This was hella entertaining Look okay, it didn t exactly push the boundaries of science fiction, plot twists weren t exactly that twisty and at times felt a little too Hunger Games esque It also didn t really feel that space y Like it could basically have taken place on a cruise ship instead of a space ship BUT I LOVED IT Emmett our MC I liked him a whole lot view spoiler I totally got Chris Pine type Captain Kirk vibes from him with how he lead the Genesis [...]

    26. Update 8 11 2017 So here is my final review I received an e ARC from Penguin s First to Read Thank you for the opportunity I want to start this review off with what other books or movies I was reminded of while reading Nyxia It will help to summarize and set up the remainder of my review WARNING I tried to avoid spoilers, but it was difficult and I did not succeed in the end The spoilers here are mild, so tread carefully You ve been warned Avatar There is a substance on an alien planet Eden that [...]

    27. This was such a good book , once I was hooked into up I couldn t stop This is a mixture between sci fi and dystopian world the reason I liked this one was because I could personally relate to Emmet it is nice to have a main character who is not white or has an amazing ability already , and I liked watching him grow through the book, Imagine this, there is a planet and new life forms and you get to investigate it if you are chosen to go there Emmet is in the running but along the way he will have [...]

    28. How far would you go to help your family when they need it most When Emmett is offered the chance to change his family s lives forever, he simply cannot refuse, there is too much at stake A giant conglomerate has offered the lifesaving medical help his mother needs, plus much needed money, all he has to do is become part of Babel Communication s space voyage and during their journey, earn the right to mine Nyxia, possibly the most valuable substance in the universe Ten troubled teens are chosen, [...]

    29. Babel might have all the keys, but they don t know what they re keeping in the cage ARC from Netgalley for an honest reviewApparently NOTAnother buddy read with Emi LMAO, it s hard to do a BR when your buddy finishes the book instead of stopping at the agreed 30% _Before I get into this review, let me just say that I never read Ender s Game, but I think I watched the flop ish of a movie Still, I won t be using it as a comparison tool Now while I found a few things that I didn t particularly love [...]

    30. I seriously was not expecting to love this book as much as I did Within a few chapters I was completely invested The setting and the characters are so well drawn and the plot is amazingly paced I would have easily have read this in one sitting because of the interests level but I am battling a sinus infection so had to cut reading time short last night Pick this up and check it out I really enjoyed this book to the moon and back
