Announcing the book of the month for November 2020

Hey all!

It’s almost hard to believe that we are already in the final stretches of the year. Now, for November, the Between the Pages bookclub will be reading Nyxia by Scott Reintgen. It’s the first book in a YA sci-fi series called the Nyxia Triad. I think it sounds pretty cool and maybe it’ll work as a book to escape the real world for everyone, as things aren’t the brightest if I’m being frank on Earth at the moment.

Anyway, here’s the synopsis –

What would you be willing to risk for a lifetime of fortune?

Emmett Atwater isn’t just leaving Detroit; he’s leaving Earth. Why the Babel Corporation recruited him is a mystery, but the number of zeroes on their contract has him boarding their lightship and hoping to return to Earth with enough money to take care of his family.

Forever.

Before long, Emmett discovers that he is one of ten recruits, all of whom have troubled pasts and are a long way from home. Now each recruit must earn the right to travel down to the planet of Eden—a planet that Babel has kept hidden—where they will mine a substance called Nyxia that has quietly become the most valuable material in the universe.

But Babel’s ship is full of secrets. And Emmett will face the ultimate choice: win the fortune at any cost, or find a way to fight that won’t forever compromise what it means to be human.

Well, I hope you will all enjoy this(myself included) and like always, the discussion post will be posted on the last day of the month, which is November 30th. Until then, happy reading and stay safe!
