Nyxia by Scott Reintgen (Ebook)
Omigosh! This book was such a great surprise! This was like The Hunger Games in outer space… A group of low-income teenagers are recruited for a job on another planet. The voyage will take a long time, and they will be trained along the way. They and their family are going to get paid a TON of money for these kids working this job. But there is a catch… they will be trained during the flight to the other planet. Each day they will receive a score. There are twelve kids, but only ten get the job. The lowest two go home. (I may have gotten the numbers wrong in that synopsis, but that’s the jist of it.)
Holy cow did I enjoy this book! I loved the diverse characters, and how they interacted, and how each on was a distinct person. I was rooting for some, and booing at others, and who I was rooting for changed throughout the book. Also, every time I thought I know what was going on… BAM! Plot twist! And I mean multiple plot twists. Even when I was nearing the end, BOOM! There’s another, just in case you were getting comfy near the very end of the book.
Whew! Now, this is most definitely a book one. You do not get a complete story here, but enough of the story to make me happy. There is definitely more adventure to be had, and I am first in line to see what happens after they all XXXX on the XXXX! I mean seriously, what is XXXX going to do to XXXXX when she finds out XXXXX. Arghhhhh! So good! And easy five stars from me.
