Desperate to return home to Earth and claim the reward Babel promised, Emmett and the Genesis team join forces with the Imago.

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.

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.

Review first posted on Fantasy Literature: Nyxia Uprising 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, Nyxia, 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, Nyxia Unleashed, 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 Nyxia Uprising 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 Nyxia Unleashed). 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, Nyxia Uprising 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! Initial comments: We started off in the first volume, Nyxia, 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, Nyxia Unleashed, 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.

    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.

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. Recommendations: 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.

Along the way, the gang not only has to fight Babel, but also fight off the predators of the harsh planet. 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.

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!

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.

    A good conclusion to this series. Emmett was a fantastic main character, and I loved his journey through this endeavor. My biggest downer was feeling like Defoe wasn't very intimidating in this book, so his part in the story wasn't as good as I was hoping for.

I have written some fairly lengthy (for me anyway) reviews on both of the previous books in this series. So I am going to try to keep this one simple and to the point. - Emmett is still my favorite. 💛 I love his strength, I love his softness. I love the fact that he's grown into a leader but is also comfortable letting others take the lead. His dynamic with Morning is excellent and it's so much fun to see how their interactions change throughout the series. He made me both laugh and cry. He's going to stick with me for a long time. - Multiple POV's! 👥 We got two more POV's added in this book. 🙌 Each one had its own unique voice and contributed to the story. However I will say that I wish Emmett had some more page time. Shocker right? I found myself occasionally growing restless of the alternate POV I was reading and wishing we could get back to whatever he was doing. Overall I still think they were the right choice for this book though. - Harry Potter References ⚡ This is all I am going to say about that: 😍😂😍 - SO. MUCH. ACTION. 🏃‍♂️ Seriously. I saw an update that I had done early into my reading of this saying it felt a little slower than the others. It did NOT last that way for long. I ended up being thankful for those slower parts to help us amp up for the ending. - The feels. 🤷 This was a lot more serious in tone than the past couple books. I missed the comic relief ! There were still a few chuckles and some VERY emotional moments throughout. 😭 Overall this is much more action verses character focused than the past books. It made sense given the dire situation everyone is in but I still wanted a little bit more. Just my personal preference, as action scenes tend to lose my interest after awhile. But I know some readers will actually prefer it the way it is. - A Perfect Ending 🎀 All in all this was such a satisfying conclusion. I left with no questions or disappointments. Some people might complain that the ending went on a little too long, since we get everything wrapped up with a nice big BOW. Personally though I loved and needed that for this series. All in all this was was everything I was hoping it would be. This is definitely one of the more solid YA series that I have read in a long time. I am so happy with this ending and looking forward to reading more from this author is the future.

    Decent end to a pretty good series! For me, this was my least favorite book of the trilogy. I loved the first one as it focused on the competition within the two Genesis groups. The second was interesting as we finally meet the Imago and learn more about their world (which, as it turns out, isn't super different from ours). But this whole last book felt like a desperate race against time to see if the allied Imago and Genesis groups can get past all obstacles and leave the planet in time before Decent end to a pretty good series! For me, this was my least favorite book of the trilogy. I loved the first one as it focused on the competition within the two Genesis groups. The second was interesting as we finally meet the Imago and learn more about their world (which, as it turns out, isn't super different from ours). But this whole last book felt like a desperate race against time to see if the allied Imago and Genesis groups can get past all obstacles and leave the planet in time before the two moons crash into each other. The premise sounds exciting, but realistically it was a lot of back and forth between Babel foiling their plans and then them having to come up with new ones. **Warning: Spoilers ahead** Some thoughts I had about this book: Some of the details are really glossed over. Once Emmett and co made it to Foundry to use its launch bay, there's barely any mention of their journey up. I was just a little taken aback by the abruptness of it. One second they're still at the Foundry, and the next, they're about to dock on the tower station. I'm still not quite sure how I understand how they made it, since none of them are pilots and know how to pilot a freight ship. If the ship is being piloted by someone at the command center, then Defoe should've been in charge already and not let them through. The black-green mist almost became a second enemy at the end, after they defeated Babel. Yes it was described briefly in the second book, but it pops up again after the moons collide and release a lot of it into space. I just didn't really see the purpose of introducing it so late into the game; with or without it the story would be pretty similar, with the sole exception of Erone's sacrifice. Speaking of which, it didn't really make sense for him to sacrifice himself right after Jacqueline pointed out that they were two of the more technically savvy people among everyone left. Plus they had just gotten reunited for the first time in what, 20-30 years?. Not to lessen his sacrifice by any means, but it really could've been anyone. How did the Prodigal device work?! It was just randomly introduced with zero explanation or context, and all we know is that it allowed Defoe to control Erone remotely. The author probably needed a way for Defoe to regain command of the space tower, but I didn't like how he just threw in some OP device without explanation. I made a mental note when Morning had trouble manipulating her nyxia for a brief second when she killed Beatty, since I thought it might be an early foreshadowing of something to come. I was disappointed when the author didn't follow through. Also didn't make sense that the nyxia only stopped working once. If the two moons collided and were severely damaged in the process, shouldn't that have impacted the effectiveness of nyxia more? When the automatic translation effect stopped working, Emmett's Imago guides even warned that there might be more occurrences of it. It's quite convenient that there weren't. Katsu's "original story" explaining Harry Potter to the Imago at the end cracked me up. That was definitely one of my favorite moments of the book :)

I love the diverse cast in this series. The characters come from all over and the world and represent the rainbow that is humanity. What's also amazing is that their race isn't the main point of their character. Yes Emmett is black but it isn't his defining characteristic. There is so much more to people than the color of their skin. I love the representation that can found in this book! I can't really describe it all that well but it makes me happy there are Asians and middle Eastern and Africans and dark skinned people and light skinned people and all the shades in between. There needs to be more works with strong lead characters of a variety of races that kids can turn do where the less doesn't struggle BECAUSE of their race. I can't wait to read more by Reintgen.

It's nigh impossible to read this book without flying through the thing at truly interstellar speeds, and I, for one, am pretty sad that this is the end of the road for this particular story world...for now, anyway. To paraphrase Victoria Aveyard when I met her at a signing in San Jose, never close a story door entirely. Of course, Reintgen's got at least two other series in the pipeline, both of which promise to be just as imaginative and cool as his debut series was. So for now, I'm bidding this world ave atque vale...and since I'm watching the Chamber of Secrets movie as I'm writing this, all those Harry Potter references did NOT go unnoticed by me, nor did they fail to make me laugh my ass off.

I loved this conclusion, seeing the character growth, the development and progression. I especially enjoyed learning about Nyxia and the Imago. This book may have its protagonists, but it is a team effort, this book and the trilogy, wouldn't be what it is, without the support characters, for example, the way Bilal reminds people of humanity, of kindness and the importance of mercy. Each character has their own part to play. I am a little sad that this is the end of the Genesis teams story. I wish there was another book, set years after their return, to show us what they did with their story and how the Imago adjusted to Earth life. But maybe those things are better left to the readers imaginations? A wonderful book, an amazing ending to a fantastic trilogy. This book will leave you laughing, crying and wanting more. A great read.

    What a finale! I'll admit, after being utterly captivated by the first book, I was a little disappointed with the second book in this series. Nyxia Uprising, however, pulled me back into the world I adored from the first book, and I was so impressed. I really enjoyed watching these teenagers take an experience that will, unfortunately, haunt them in the best and worst ways forever, and turn it into an opportunity to stand up against their oppressors, to put their feet down and say, "No, that isn What a finale!

I really enjoyed watching these teenagers take an experience that will, unfortunately, haunt them in the best and worst ways forever, and turn it into an opportunity to stand up against their oppressors, to put their feet down and say, "No, that isn't right, and we aren't going to take it any longer." Their teamwork, integrity, and determination is admirable. While there were a lot of names to keep up with (and realizing I probably should've refreshed myself with what happened in the previous book), I thoroughly enjoyed this final installment in the series. The writing is wonderful. Reingten uses some killer metaphors ("...watch a baby blue sky tremble to midnight...", "...like a body that's too infested and sick to save...") that really add to the atmosphere of the story and its intergalactic setting, and left me completely bewildered. I have been anxious since book one regarding the ending of this rags-to-riches, nobodies-to-somebodies tale, and I am so pleased with the ending. Happy trails, Nyxia, and I can't wait to read what Reingten comes up with next! *Thoughts and opinions are my own, but special thanks to Scott Reingten (and the luck of the Instagram) for sending me this copy!*

Rich with allusions like the breakdown of language translations and redemptive characters, this one is not to be missed. It is the perfect read for anyone that enjoys the sci-fi genre--not just for a specific gender or age group and honestly ends as well as I had hoped it would. I cried when they cried. And I laughed when they laughed. The action sequences are so well done there were times I felt like I was getting ready to watch it play out on the big screen. While I could wax poetically for days over this one, I will just end with: buy the dang book. Buy the whole triad. The first two are currently on sale! And it is honestly worth every penny.

    I was so glad this book finished the series strong! It was a fun series, with plenty of action and great characters. I loved all the twists and turns, some when I really was not expecting it! There was a good ending, but not a perfectly happy one, which is usually the best kind. I really liked Emmett and Morning, and I loved following the occasional chapter by Anton and Longwei. If they could do it justice, this trilogy would make excellent movies.

    I don't want it to be over! So sad it is but such a great way to end. Everything was sooooo good in this book, I loved it all. The whole trilogy is just so awesome! It's great! My only beef in all 3 books was the insta-love. Though I grew to like the relationship, it was out of place when / how it formed. Other than that, I can't say a bad thing about the books. I loved them lots! Am sad it's over!

    This conclusion to the Nyxia triad was so jam packed with action, tying up loose ends you never knew would form. There is love, heartbreak, death, mourning, and rebirth. I loved the 2 additional POVs which gave us a different perspective on the happenings with the Imago and of course, Babel. With a satisfying ending, I'm looking forward to more books by Scott!
