    What a beautiful ending to a favorite series!! Scott Reintgen gave us a perfect ending to The Nyxia Triad in Nyxia Uprising. Can you say book hangover? I'm pretty sure I'll be experiencing a massive one.

    In Book 3, Emmett and Morning along with the rest of the Genesis kids, and the Imago, race to beat back Babel and get off planet before the planet's moons collide. Along the way, the gang not only has to fight Babel, but also fight off the predators of the harsh planet.

    What a beautiful ending to a favorite series!! Scott Reintgen gave us a perfect ending to The Nyxia Triad in Nyxia Uprising. Can you say book hangover? I'm pretty sure I'll be experiencing a massive one.

    I switched off between reading this book in print and listening to the audiobook. Ummmm... You may want to be careful about listening to this one while driving. Reintgen does not hold back about killing off his characters, and I found myself trying to drive through the tears during one especially emotional chapter.

    And that ending! I'm completely at peace now and can leave this series knowing that all is right with the Genesis survivors.

    The audiobook was narrated by Sullivan Jones, Kyla Garcia, Alex Romashov, and Keong Sim; Emmett, Morning, Anton, and Longwei. I loved Sullivan and Keong's chapters the best. For Kyla, I had to speed her chapters up for some reason. Overall, a little over a 4 for the performances.

    Fantastic ending to the series! It even brought tears to my eyes which doesn't happen very often. Definitely one of my favorite series. I can't wait to read Reintgen's next series about Alchemists. Another one of my favorite subjects. I'm going to be stalking all the sites for an ARC. : )

    Even though Nyxia Uprising wrapped up one of the better YA trilogies I’ve read lately, I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as the first two books.

    I just couldn’t get into it with the same gusto. Part of that was because of the lack of stimulating story components. Book 1 included a ton of engaging training sequences and compelling unknowns to discover. Not to mention exciting interpersonal conflicts and rivalries. Book 2 had a lot of dazzling world exploration, “magic” training as they learned how

    Even though Nyxia Uprising wrapped up one of the better YA trilogies I’ve read lately, I didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as the first two books.

    I just couldn’t get into it with the same gusto. Part of that was because of the lack of stimulating story components. Book 1 included a ton of engaging training sequences and compelling unknowns to discover. Not to mention exciting interpersonal conflicts and rivalries. Book 2 had a lot of dazzling world exploration, “magic” training as they learned how to use Nyxia, and some fantastic alien culture immersion.

    … whereas book 3 was kindly just one long drawn out fight with few dynamics (and practically zero fun-factor elements). From a construction standpoint, I think it would’ve made for a stronger finish had the series been a duology, and final conflict shortened to wrap up the second book. As a stand alone installment, it was quite weak by comparison.

    Another problem was my lack of investment in the characters. The main character, Emmett, didn’t get a lot of page-time, which I missed because it was his unique view on the world that helped hook me into the story in the first place. My issue was compounded because of how long it had been since I’d read the second book – it loses a little of the impact when you can’t remember much about the side characters. The story did eventually provide enough recap for me to recall everything, but it took a while, but even then the deaths and victories felt very distant.

    Overall, I’m glad to have read this series – I enjoyed the first two books immensely. This one just didn’t tickle my fancy the same, but I still liked the resolution.

    the Nyxia Triad is one of the better YA series I’ve read, and I enjoyed it mostly for its competition and world-building elements. It’s a watered down version of Red Rising with a very distinctive main character. I’d definitely recommend it to fans of the genre.

    Nyxia Uprising is a very solid ending to the Nyxia triad. In general, I think this is a really fantastic sci-fi trilogy with a diverse cast of characters and thoughtful execution. It's a bit like Red Rising, but for a younger audience and a great series to try if you are looking for something that might suck in teen boys! This one was not my favorite of the series, but I think that has more to do with personal taste. Uprising is pretty heavy on the action with less emphas

    Nyxia Uprising is a very solid ending to the Nyxia triad. In general, I think this is a really fantastic sci-fi trilogy with a diverse cast of characters and thoughtful execution. It's a bit like Red Rising, but for a younger audience and a great series to try if you are looking for something that might suck in teen boys! This one was not my favorite of the series, but I think that has more to do with personal taste. Uprising is pretty heavy on the action with less emphasis on character development and world-building than previous books, which just isn't my favorite type of book. However, I think it was very well-written and with a satisfying conclusion and some emotional moments.

    Do be aware there is quite a bit of violence in the series, and this book is no exception, but the author also makes an effort to consider the moral ramifications of violence and one character almost always takes a stance of non-violence.

    is the fast-paced conclusion to Scott Reintgen’s NYXIA TRIAD YA sci-fi trilogy, an adventure with several teenage protagonists. It’s set both in space and on a distant planet called Eden that has two moons, an alien race called the Imago, and an abundant supply of nyxia, a malleable mineral with near-magical powers. These three books tell a single, unified story, and it’s impossible to appreciate this series without reading all of the books in order … and here is your obligatory spoiler warning for the earlier volumes, as I’ll briefly recap the tale thus far.

    The first volume,

    , had a Hunger Games-in-space type of plot (though the competition between the teens is less … murderous, it’s still pretty intense). A powerful corporation called Babel assembled a group of ten teenagers of various nationalities but generally less-privileged backgrounds for a space flight to Eden to mine the priceless nyxia for Babel, promising them immense wealth for a few years of their lives in Babel’s service. Most of the story is narrated by Emmett Atwater, an African-American teen from Detroit. The year-long flight to Eden is spent in an exciting (for both the teens and the reader) and exhausting (for the teens) competition between the teenagers for a coveted place with the final group that will actually land on Eden.

    The second book,

    , shifted to the teens’ exploration of Eden (better known as Magnia, the Imago name for their planet) and getting to know the Imago, the human-like inhabitants of Magnia, as their group travels toward and into the planet’s largest city. It becomes even more clear to Emmett, his love interest Morning Rodriguez, and the other teenagers just how untrustworthy Babel is. But it turns out the Imago have been keeping a huge secret as well: the two moons of Magnia are going to collide in a few weeks, and the planet will become unlivable.

    As

    begins, it’s now a race against time and Babel’s military forces, to try to get Earthborn teenagers and a representative group of the Imago ― who will be the sole survivors of their entire race ― up into space to try to commandeer the Babel spaceships that are in orbit around Magnia, and travel back to Earth. Since the Imago aren’t a spacefaring race, getting up to the spaceships is more challenging than it might seem. The Imago and Earth teens also need to be prepared to fight Babel’s leaders and their marine forces for access to and control of the ships. But the Imago have nyxia, limitless imagination, and desperation on their side. Not to mention some extremely bright and well-trained (thanks for that at least, Babel) human teenagers.

    Babel’s been not only cheating and lying to the human teens and the Imago, but also attempting to murder everyone on the planet, so it’s all fair. But Babel’s not going to give up easily.

    Both of the earlier books in this series were exciting and engaging reads, if noticeably light on the science aspect of science fiction (for reasons I delve into in my review of

    ). The teenage protagonists are an appealing and highly diverse group, and the novels (especially the first and this third one) are briskly paced, with hardly a moment for the teens and the readers to relax and take a deep breath or two. But I couldn’t help but feel that the series lost some of its sharpness and creativity in this last book. It’s focused on a single mission: get to the spaceships, take over, get back to Earth. Despite multiple obstacles and a few surprising casualties along the way,

    overall felt rather predictable. The denouement was also a minor let-down, as Reintgen wrapped up the story with some feel-good giftwrap and a nice bow that took a few too many chapters to unfold.

    Despite some weaknesses in this concluding volume, overall the NYXIA TRIAD series is a fun read that kept me interested to the end. I’d recommend it mostly to older teen readers who like sci-fi adventures with a diverse cast.

    Content notes: Lots of violence and death. Bodies everywhere!

    We started off in the first volume,

    , with a Hunger Games in space kind of plot (though the competition between the teens is less ... murderous, it's still pretty intense).

    The second book,

    , shifted to exploring an alien planet, getting to know the Imago, the human-like people who live there ... and fighting against Babel, the evil corporation from Earth that brought the teens to this planet.

    The two moons are important: they're going to collide in a few weeks, and the planet will become unlivable. So now it's a race to try to get our group of teens and a representative group of the Imago - who will be the sole survivors of their entire race - up into space to try to commandeer the Babel spaceships, to save as many of them as possible.

    I can't believe this series is ending, a series I stuck with from the start. This is my absolute favorite YA sci-fi series. Meaningful character development, important social commentary, original concepts, and a carefully thought out diverse cast of characters who I would die for. I can't wait for what I expect to be a show stopping conclusion!

    Thanks so much to the folks who have loved this series, spread it out in the universe, shared it with friends and family. I'm incredibly proud of this conclusion. I think it does justice to a beloved cast of characters that I-- and you-- have come to care so much about. A friend of mine read the book and said it basically feels like the "end game" starts on page 45 and the tension and racing heartbeat doesn't go away until the very last page. I was hoping for a breathless conclusion that delivered on all the promises the rest of the series makes. I hope I fulfilled those promises to you. While I do write for myself, I also write for the reader who will curl up with this book the day it comes out and race to the conclusion alongside my characters.

    Thank you so much for being such loyal, fantastic readers.
