"A high-octane thriller . . . Nyxia grabs you from the first line and never lets go." --Marie Lu, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Warcross

Every life has a price in this sci-fi thriller--the first in a trilogy--that has the nonstop action of The Maze Runner and the high-stakes space setting of Illuminae .

What would you be willing to risk for a lifetime of fortune?

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

Brilliant. The characters are amazing and the story is addictive. You might think you know what's going on, but then Babel changes the rules. Again and again. Right up to the end, leaving me drooling for the next book. We're headed for Eden, but can we trust what Babel says we're going to find? Can we even trust why these 15 "lucky" teens have been sent to Eden? So many questions and so many feels.. where is book two?!?
