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-octane 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?
Scott Reintgen was always a back-row dreamer. As early as kindergarten, teachers
noticed his tendency to stare out of classroom windows and disappear to more
interesting elsewheres. In high school, he began laboring away on the opening chapter
of his first fantasy novel. One of his favorite English teachers agreed to read the pages
and the very next day she switched him (illegally) out of Spanish and into a Creative
Writing class. The story got tossed eventually, but he never lost the confidence he was
given by that single act of empowering faith.
Convinced he would one day be a writer, Scott spent most of college and graduate
school investing in the world of literature. This eventually led to a career teaching
English and Creative Writing in North Carolina. He strongly believes that every student
who steps into his classroom has the right to see themselves, vibrant and victorious and
on the page. It’s his hope to encourage a future full of diverse writers. As he’s fond of
reminding his students, “You have a story to tell and you’re the only one who can tell it.”
As for his own writing, Scott continues to follow in the footsteps of his favorite authors.
It was Tolkien who once wrote, “The fairy gold (too often) turns to withered leaves when
it is brought away. All I can ask is that you, knowing all these things, will receive my
withered leaves, as a token at least that my hand once held a little of the gold.” And
Scott hopes his books are a trail of withered leaves that might lead readers to the bright
elsewheres through which he constantly finds himself wandering.
He currently lives in North Carolina with his wife, Katie, and family.
