Summary (from Goodreads):

Getting to Eden brought Emmett and his crewmates one step closer to their promised fortune. But surviving Eden may be the biggest reward of all. Discover book two in the trilogy Marie Lu called, “a high-octance thriller.”

Emmett Atwater thought Babel’s game sounded easy. Get points. Get paid. Go home. But it didn’t take long for him to learn that Babel’s competition was full of broken promises, none darker or more damaging than the last one.

Now Emmett and the rest of the Genesis survivors must rally and forge their own path through a new world. Their mission from Babel is simple: extract nyxia, the most valuable material in the universe, and play nice with the indigenous Adamite population.

But Emmett and the others quickly realize they are caught between two powerful forces—Babel and the Adamites—with clashing desires. Will the Genesis team make it out alive before it’s too late?

Why I can’t wait to read this:

  • I loved Nyxia! Very very much! (See my full review here)
  • The first book ended on a cliffhanger so I need to find out what happens next.
  • Emmett is a great character – I also loved all of the other teenage characters and want to get to know more about them and their motivation for joining this mission.
  • There were some hints in the first book that things aren’t quite what they seem and I am suspicious of a company that seems to have specifically chosen young people with a very strong motivation for going through with the mission because of their family, etc – I want to get to the bottom of this mystery.
  • It is great to see more science-fiction in YA as it is something that I feel has great potential – I love it too which helps!
