Description-

  • "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
    In the highly anticipated Nyxia Triad series finale, Emmett and the Genesis team must join forces with a surprising set of allies if they're ever to make it home alive.

    Desperate to return home to Earth and claim the reward Babel promised, Emmett and the Genesis team join forces with the Imago. Babel's initial attack left their home city in ruins, but that was just part of the Imago's plan. They knew one thing Babel didn't. This world is coming to an end.
    Eden's two moons are on a collision course no one can prevent. After building eight secret launch stations, the Imago hoped to lure Babel down to their doomed planet as they left it behind. A perfect plan until the Genesis team's escape route was destroyed.
    Now the group must split up to survive the hostile terrain and reach another launch station. As both sides struggle for the upper hand, the fight leads inevitably back into space, where Emmett, his crewmates, and their new allies will fight one final battle for control of the Genesis ships. Win this time, and they'll survive Babel's twisted game once and for all. As the Imago world falls, this is the last chance to rise.
    Praise for the Nyxia Triad:
    "A high-octane thriller. . . . Nyxia grabs you from the first line and never lets go." —MARIE LU, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Young Elites series
    "File this book under A for Amazing." —JAY KRISTOFF, New York Times bestselling author

Excerpts-

  • From the cover Longwei Yu


    18 days 12 hours 11 minutes


    Babel's king bleeds.

    For a moment, I think I've lost the trail. But I double back and find his blood painted across moonlit leaves. A great streak of scarlet marks the body of a swollen trunk. If I squinted any longer, I might have been able to convince myself the mark looked like the Chinese characters for dying.

    I need this king alive.

    Moonlight dominates the clearing. A creek angles west. It forks, and just there, I see where Defoe must have gone. There are no footprints, not in this ghostly place, but it's the most reasonable decision. A massive tree has been exposed at the roots. They curl above and around a hollow. It's the kind of burrow a deer might sleep in. I watch the shadows for several minutes.

    No movement.

    I follow the creek forward. The trees sway, their branches and leaves grasping at the light of the nearest moon. It almost feels as if the entire forest is flinching away from where Defoe is hidden. Fifty meters. I lift both hands innocently into the air. My eyes trace over the landscape, through the shadows. I'm not eager to die just because some creature has picked up our scent.

    Twenty-five meters. I pause, hands still raised, awaiting an invitation. The shadows are too deep to see anything. Breathing. I can hear breathing. One shallow breath after another.

    Reaching up, I tap the light on my shoulder. A beam flashes out—like a third moon—and highlights the makeshift cavern. Defoe is there. His eyes take in the sight of me before closing in pain. I can feel him grasping, the subtle trace of nyxia in the air. Clearly, he's far too weak to do much with the substance. I have a choice to make. The consequences will echo.

    The first choice ends here and now. How painfully simple it would be to finish him. One of Babel's greatest threats, erased. It would eliminate any opportunity for him to hurt the others.

    It would also eliminate any opportunity to infiltrate Babel. Show up on their doorstep without him and I become a prisoner. The other choice: Save him. Rescue. Subvert. Wait.

    When I strike, I want to make sure I hit an artery. My two choices and their consequences play out in less than a breath. "Mr. Defoe." I make my voice calm. "I came to help you."

    He wheezes. It's almost a laugh. It is clear what he thinks of me.

    "Longwei—of course you did. . . ."

    I watch as he leans his head back. Hidden at his hip, an explosive. Identical to the one he used on the battlefield. The same device that nearly ripped my friends apart with a single blast. Defoe lifts the device so I can see it more clearly.

    "I thought—well, never mind what I thought." A cough shakes his body. "Take this. Replace my fingers on the pin and get rid of it. Three-second charge. Throw it as far as you can."

    His arm shakes, but I am steady. I replace his fingers quickly, device secured, and turn. Twenty paces bring me back to the edge of the creek. With a deep breath, I throw the grenade as far as I can. Moonlight dances across its spiraling surface; then the grenade falls below the tree line and vanishes briefly from sight. A second passes before an explosion tears the darkness in two.

    Bright and loud. A pair of birds take to the air. Something massive stirs deeper in the forest. I move back to Defoe's side. "I can't—stop the bleeding," he gasps. "The nyxia won't take."

    I kneel so that my shoulder light is centered on the curled, covered stump of his arm. He has a soiled towel wrapped around it. Ineffective. I set down...

His former career as a teacher of English and creative writing in diverse urban communities in North Carolina taught him the difficult lesson that inspiration isn't equally accessible to everyone.

Reviews-

  • AudioFile Magazine Part of what makes this audiobook trilogy so memorable is the talent of narrator Sullivan Jones. In this action-packed conclusion to the Nyxia Triad series, the initial journey for resources on an alien planet turns into an ugly fight as the Genesis teens strive to defeat Babel and return home. Jones gives main character Emmett a strong personality that comes off as casual at first but quickly turns passionate. The ensemble of narrators enhances the experience as the story moves poignantly from one character's situation to the next. Jones always portrays Emmett with underlying tones of hope and optimism. In contrast, supporting narrators Kyla Garcia, Alex Romashov, and Keong Sim all give their characters a desperate edge that intensifies the climax of the series.
