“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.
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.
“The 100 meets Illuminae in this high-octane sci-fi thriller.” —Bustle

The narrator was fine, I think he delivers the lines as believable as possible. Tho this story is not what it claims itself to be. there's no mention of race in the entire information section, yet within 5 minutes in this dystopian future that is all that the main character cares about. He calls the main villain an uncle Tom basically, then of the kids selected to for this competition the only kid disinterested in money is the "white-boy" as he is described in the book, not a boy that's white instead the tokenism term white-boy.

Both my husband and I drive a lot. When we are on a long drive we listen to books. We enjoyed Nyxia. It is a science fiction story that started out slow but we were caught later and couldn't stop listening to it! It's not your blood and gore or apacolypse book. It is different. I think that's why we enjoyed this one. I would recommend this book.
