Book Review – Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reingten

nyxia unleashed.jpgGetting to Eden brought Emmett and his crewmates one step closer to their promised fortune. But surviving Eden may be the biggest reward of all.

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 rating: Cyan-Full starCyan-Full starCyan-Full starCyan-Full starCyan-Half star

4.5 stars again, for an excellent follow up to the fantastic Nyxia.

At the start I struggled to see where it was going for a short while, but every time I turned a page it just got better and better. I cannot wait to read book 3! And that ending! Gah.

So, I loved the meld of 11 and 12 on this, plus I’d forgotten the horror of what they were forced to do at the end of Nyxia. That was brought home pretty quickly. I felt the mining was interesting but I’m glad we didn’t get any more of it. Though the reasoning there and the moving on felt rushed to be honest. But getting to see the Imago was lovely. As was just how well the book highlights mankind’s failings – at this point just Babel’s perhaps, but it rang true for me. They took away the name of the people, of the planet. How is that supposed to endear them to a people they want something from?

Having said that, the Imago aren’t always much better, but at least that gets cleared up a bit. I really enjoyed the restaurant scene on planet, and the bits preceding that 🙂 I think it was lovely to show that the choices aren’t perfect either way.

I love Emmett and Morning too 🙂 happy and cute :):)

I would definitely recommend this series to anyone who likes adventure, intrigue, science fiction and action!
