Everything You Need to Know About the World of Nyxia by Scott Reintgen

The Nyxia series by Scott Reintgen is all kinds of epic. With pulse-pounding action and a breakneck pace, you’ll be hooked on this deep-space thriller from page one. The second explosive book is coming out in July, so now’s the perfect time to jump on board with this highly addictive series!

Whether you need a refresher course before reading Nyxia Unleashed or you’re just getting started with the series, here’s what you need to know about the world of Nyxia.

A Secret Planet and a Valuable Substance


This series is set in the not-so-distant future, when space exploration is booming and large corporations like Babel are hungry for power.

Nyxia has become the most valuable resource in the world, and Babel wants to mine the substance on a planet they’ve kept hidden from society. The Adamites, the people currently inhabiting that planet, have requested the youngest recruits possible to work the mines.

A Wonderfully Diverse Cast of Characters



To keep the Adamites happy, Babel recruits teenagers from every corner of the world, creating a group of teens that’s as diverse as they are authentic. In spite of (or maybe because of) their differences, the teens find common ground. Through their experiences, they form bonds as strong as family.

A Fierce Competition


As part of their training, the teens have to compete with each other to earn their spot on a mining team. With a giant scoreboard keeping tabs on their performance 24/7, the competition is fierce. In order to secure their place on a team, the recruits have to put all their skills, wits, and strategies to good use.

Nyxia Has Some Serious Personality


With one thought, you can transform nyxia into anything you want. But while you’re manipulating nyxia, it’s also manipulating you. Nyxia has a mind of its own, and if you aren’t careful, this otherworldly substance can overpower you and bend you to its will.

Enough Plot Twists to Make You Dizzy


There are more twists and turns in this series than a salsa dance competition. Just when you think you’ve figured things out, a wildcard (or two) gets tossed into the equation. With secrets, deceit, and diabolical plots galore, you’ll never guess what’s going to happen next. This action-packed series will keep you riveted to the page and desperate for more. You won’t be able to put it down!
