Fans of Hunger Games and Red Rising will devour this - it's ridiculously good. I loved every page (K.D., Goodreads)
In a word: Wow. I could not put it down. If I could give it six stars, I would (Nic Stone, Goodreads)
An absolute page-turner (Vic James, author of 'Gilded Cage')
My most anticipated YA debut of 2017 (Pied Piper, Goodreads)
Fast-moving and thrilling, and very difficult to put down (Justin, Goodreads)
The setup will draw comparisons to The Hunger Games, but Reintgen's characters stand on their own, and the trials they face are inventive. Emmett's self-deprecation, wit, and ability to see the good in others will keep readers riveted and eager for the next volume in this planned trilogy (Publishers Weekly)
A black protagonist in outer space is welcome...copious action and a reality TV atmosphere (the scoreboard shows regularly) make the pace flow. Fast-moving and intriguing (Kirkus Reviews)
An amazing adventure of intelligence and strength, this sci-fi book presents diverse and complex characters in a tale about greed and internal compromise. The author brings to life more than a dozen characters with depth and individual personalities and agendas. This is a wonderful example of how personal and corporate values are often intertwined despite being at odds with each other. Verdict: Fans of The Hunger Games and The Maze Runner series will enjoy this series opener (School Library Journal)
File this book under A for Amazing (Jay Kristoff New York Times bestselling author of The Illuminae Files)
Brilliant concept meets stellar execution in this fast-paced deep space adventure. I was hooked from page one (Victoria Schwab, #1 New York Times bestselling author)
About the Author
Scott Reintgen has spent his career teaching English and Creative Writing in diverse urban communities in the United States. The hardest lesson he learned was that inspiration isn't equally accessible for everyone. So he set out to write a novel for the front-row sleepers and back-row dreamers of his classrooms. He hopes that his former students see themselves, vibrant and on the page, in characters like Emmett. Nyxia and Nyxia Unleashed are the first two novels in The Nyxia Triad.

Just an FYI: Amazon has mentioned Michael Joseph as the publisher for book 1 here, but it's incorrect. Book 1 on Amazon is from Penguin (smaller size) and book 2 is by Michael Joseph. So get ready to have inproportainately sized books! This happened with the Legend series also. Seriously, Amazon? Give me same size/cover books.

About fifty pages from the end the action sort of dies down for a few pages, then races to the last ten pages. When all seems nice and comfy and all the loose ends are tied back together, the rug is yanked one more time for the final pages. I loved it.
I am thankful I was able to read the novel before actual publication (I did pre-ordere it), and my only complaint is having to wait a year or two for book two.
I can't wait to get this book in my classroom to put into kids' hands. It is refreshing to also see a local author and friend have early success in the very tough industry of novel publishing.
Don't read this in three days like I did (275 pages in one sitting), for you'll just long for the second book even sooner. Sigh. Congrats, Mr. Reintgen. You deserve every accolade coming to you for writing such a great story.
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 final mission team.
The beauty of this story, though, isn't solely rooted in the diversity of the characters. What really made it a hit for me is that despite the fact that all the recruits come from different countries/cultures, the main conflict really hinges on the one thing all the characters have in common. (I won't say what it is because trying to stay spoiler-free.)
I've never read a book that manages to illustrate the complexity of human motivations while simultaneously keeping the pages turning. Not only could I not put it down... when I got to the end, I couldn't stop thinking about it. Every time Emmett was faced with a moral dilemma--and there were many--I found myself torn. Every single time. There were no easy answers.
And that was my favorite aspect of the story. The depth. The complexity of each character. The constant battle between doing whatever it takes to earn a place on the final team, and maintaining a sense of self and personal integrity.
If I could give it six stars, I would.
It was absolutely amazing story and I’m really excited to read the next book
