Nyxia Unleashed by Scott Reintgen
*We were lucky to get an advance copy through NetGalley and we’d like to thank Scott Reintgen and Crown Books for the opportunity to read and review early. This book comes out on July 17th and you can get it here.*
What I drank prior: So…. for those of you who don’t know. I’m from Argentina and it’s the World Cup. We lost to fucking Croatia today. I’ve been drinking about it. At least 6 beers. There was a shot. It happened.
Spoiler-free Overview: so for those of you who haven’t read book one… my review is here. So if you haven’t read book 1, you’re gonna get some spoilers. So, the main guy, Emmett, and his squad of damaged teens make it to Eden… the planet with all the Nyxia element that can fuckin change its shape at fuckin will. And they’re tasked to mine this crap and there are shady things happening obviously and that causes issues.
Spoiler-free Thoughts: I loved this as much as the first if not more. My heart broke… on public transportation… and Scott made fun of me for crying on the train.
Characters: they are so precious to me. Broski who took that HUGE risk? Sigh. He’s my fave right now.
Plot: it’s just go go go. All the time. And amazing twists and awesome “YEAH YA DID” and “NOOOOOOOO”s.
Writing Style: Suspenseful and quite enticing. Loved it.
World Building: I was so excited to see more of this universe. It was awesome. I loved learning about the culture of this world and it was just awesome. Learning that Babel may not be the only evil? So great.
What to pair it with: I want shots of tequila. No mixers. Not a beverage. Shots.
Rating: 5/5 shots
