    Great Debut and Start of Series

    4 stars. Nyxia is the first book by Scott Reintgen that I have read so I wasn't sure what to expect. What I found was a well written space story with teenagers learning who they are. While this is written for teens, adults will enjoy it too (at least this adult did). It is a standalone but the ending leaves the storyline open for future books that might be written. There is violence. The book blurb adequately describes the storyline so I'm not going to repeat all of that info here. This is partly a coming of age book as well as a space novel including corporate power and money. This was well written for a debut novel and the author impressed me with his ability to create a vivid life aboard the ship. I couldn't help but relate to the characters. As usual, everything and everyone is not as it seems. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley and Random House (Crown Books for Young Readers). I chose to write a review for other readers. I look forward to reading more from this author, especially in this series, in the future.

    What an ending!!!

    I heard good things about this book, so when I saw it on Penguin First To Read I took a chance and guaranteed a copy for myself. I started reading soon after… and it took me a long time to get through his one. Brief summary: a big corporation in the not-so-distant future has gathered a group of poor teenagers, offered them enough money to keep them and their families comfortable for life, and taken them aboard their space ship en-route to a new planet called Eden. They need the kids because the native peoples on this planet hate humans, but they have a deep affection for children and won’t hurt them. So, I’ll start with the negatives… * Early on I was honestly bored. This book had a little bit of a Divergent feel to it, but I didn’t really feel any emotion or connection to the characters. I think part of the problem was that they dumped SO many characters on us at once. By about 15% things were looking up and I was enjoying it a little more. * The main character, Emmett, has some characteristics that bothered me. He would call his parents “moms and pops” – I’ve heard pops before, but something about moms just grated on me. It’s a personal thing, not a deal breaker. * The other thing Emmett did that drove me crazy was saying things like “I filed that under A for Anger” all the time. They finally explained WHAT that was all about, but it was too little too late for me. The annoyance was firmly there. * Too many characters were introduced all at once and I was really never given a chance to really get to know them. Not even the one involved with the first big plot twist around 30%. Had I been really given a chance to connect with that character I might have gotten bent out of shape. * The villains were a little one dimensional. I’m hoping they will evolve when it comes to book 2. Okay, all that said, there were a lot of things I DID like. I mean, I’m giving it 4 stars after all. * This book is very creative. Just the concept of Nyxia (this alien material that can be controlled by your thoughts) is fascinating as all get out. There’s more to the substance than we know as well, it’s already been alluded to, and I look forward to finding out more. * The challenges the kids underwent were also very creative and unique. They got a little repetitive at times, but overall I did enjoy them. * This book is as about diverse as one can imagine. The protagonist is African American from Detroit, his bestie on board the ship is from the Middle East. His roommate is from Asia. There’s tons of representation in this book and it was pretty awesome. * The plot twist at the end. I did NOT see that coming. I was left speechless. With an ending like that there’s no way I can skip book 2. So, should you read this? If you’re looking for a (mostly) unique Sci-Fi teen novel, this might just do the trick. It has a few flaws, but on a whole the creative and unique bits (and that ending!!!) make for a pretty compelling read.
