Synopsis/Sinopsis:

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.

Emmett Atwater tidak hanya meninggalkan Detroit; dia meninggalkan bumi. Alasan Babel Corporation merekrutnya adalah sebuah misteri, namun jumlah nominal yang ditawarkan membuatnya menaiki pesawat luar angkasa Babel  dan berharap bisa kembali ke Bumi dengan cukup uang untuk mengurus keluarganya.

Tak lama kemudian, Emmett menemukan bahwa dia hanya satu dari sepuluh orang yang direkrut, yang kesemuanya memiliki latar belakang yang sulit dan jauh dari rumah. Tiap orang berjuang mendapatkan hak untuk mendarat dan melakukan perjalanan ke planet Eden – sebuah planet yang memiliki zat paling berharga di alam semesta bernama Nyxia.

Tapi pesawat luar angkasa Babel penuh dengan rahasia. Dan Emmett menghadapi pilihan sulit: memenangkan pertarungan dengan cara apapun, atau harus berkompromi dengan cara bertarung yang tidak manusiawi.
