A well-plotted story from start to finish! Scott Reintgen knows how to hold back just the right amount of information to keep you on the edge of your seat. In fact, he so totally kept me wondering what would happen next that I read this book in three days! And trust me, I don’t go out of my way to read sci-fi, but that’s how good his writing is. Join Emmet and his team on the next leg of their journey in BOOK 2 of this tension-filled, character-driven sci-fi trilogy. Great for guys and girls.
What an amazing sequel to Nyxia. When Emmett descends to the surface of Eden to explore the wonderful, yet dangerous world, he & his team are put in the middle of the tension between Babel (the company they work for) & the Adamites (the inhabitants of the planet). That leaves Emmett not knowing who to trust. Now he & his friends must find a way to return home despite their enemy’s true intentions & what they will do to destroy anything in their way.

"File this book under A for Amazing." -Jay Kristoff, New York Times bestselling author
Discover book two in the sci-fi space trilogy that Bustle described as "The 100 meets Illuminae" and Marie Lu called, "a high-octane 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 spaceship 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?
