Description

2016 Editor's Pick

2016 Audible's Best in Science Fiction

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling series

More than two centuries after World War III poisoned the planet, the final bastion of humanity lives on massive airships circling the globe in search of a habitable area to call home. Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago. The only thing keeping the two surviving lifeboats in the sky are Hell Divers - men and women who risk their lives by skydiving to the surface to scavenge for parts the ships desperately need.

When one of the remaining airships is damaged in an electrical storm, a Hell Diver team is deployed to a hostile zone called Hades. But there's something down there far worse than the mutated creatures discovered on dives in the past - something that threatens the fragile future of humanity.

A little cliche action hero-y but damn good story anyway

You know how it goes. The Hero who is tragic and damaged, he (insert self destructive vice) too much and can barely hold himself together. He has a chip on his shoulder and is something of a loose cannon - both characteristics that keep him from rising in the ranks while also ensuring he's called on for the most dangerous deploys. ....but it's actually still pretty good. Solid character development, an actual female captain (who's main character arc is actual leadership not a romance with aforementioned Loose Cannon), and it's got plenty of nail biting moments while not being overly predictable or relying on jump scares (can books have jump scares?) I was mad when it was over and now I'm gonna go download the next in the series.

Came for the dystopia, left with derivation

RC Bray does a wonderful job with introspective strong male protagonists. His narration was spot-on as always. The plot to hell divers is exactly what you'd expect from the synopsis and cover art. It immerses you in a world not too unlike our own, with little glimpses of how the players of this world view our privileged existence. Beyond the basic premise, I found the writing derivative and expository at times. Lots of plot points are nothing more than they appear on the surface. I couldn't get into any intrigue beyond the fate of the protagonists. The world building ends at the surface level. That said, the world building is still masterful. Without getting into too much detail, it differs so much from our own that it's shallow skin might make it more believable, avoiding unneeded complication in a very cut-and-dry existence. I look forward to picking up future books to find out if there is more than meets the eye hidden in the next installment.

Like listening to an apocalyptic action movie

I tried this book on a whim — I love apocalyptic stories but there are a lot of mediocre books out there. This is not one them! The Hell Divers series is original, exciting, and addictive. I’ve literally had to buy more credits as I’ve plowed through listening to the whole series to date in the last month. Be warned: this story will grab you and you won’t want to let go!

Pure entertainment

I can tell you my review of the book, but you may have different tastes in books. So, here is a little of what I like to read... I love Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Mystery, Post-Apocalyptic, and Thrillers. As a kid, many years ago, I loved reading Piers Anthony's; Battle Circle, the Xanth Series, and Bio of a Space Tyrant. I also loved Orson Scott Card's Ender's Series. Fast forward a few decades and I can say my taste in books has not changed too much. Some of my favorite books are from Author’s like; Blake Crouch, Joshua Gayou, and Andrew Fukuda. Since the COVID-19 stay-at-home order, I have read or listened to 20 books. Some books were good, and some were ok. But I wanted something entertaining. I stumbled upon the Hell Divers series. I was immediately drawn into the story and enthralled into the action. I do not want to give anything away from the story, but this first book will leave you wanting more. I finished all six books within two weeks. As a side note, I have read some of the negative reviews and many of them attack the probability of the various things. Or how scientifically the survivors could do this or that? Now if you are one of those people, this book may not be for you. However, if you enjoy action, a fast-paced story that makes you want to listen just another hour, then this is the book f

HELL DIVERS: A HEAVENLY THRILLER!

"Hell Divers #1" was even better (based on all the great reviews I read prior) than expected. An absolutely amazing thrill ride, start to finish, with well developed, multidimensional, realistic characters. I was familiar with Sansbury Smith's work from his "Extinction Horizon" (Zombie) series, and went through them, one after the other, till I had to wait for his newest release, and preordered that one. This book had it all. . . mystery, suspense, nonstop thrills, and horror all perfectly mixed in. I did not read the synopsis for book #2 for until I finished this one, so was surprised by the ending, and thought it was perfect! Looking forward to moving onto book #2 in this series soon, and cannot recommend Mr. Sansbury Smith's work highly enough. He is definitely not a one hit wonder, and is (quite honestly) just terrifically talented, and gets what readers/listeners seek in thriller/horror books. It goes without saying that R.C. Bray was as amazing as the narrator. Whenever I see his name listed as the person who narrated a book, I know the listening experience will be well beyond expectations! :)

Best narration I've ever heard for any book.

Just finished book 5 after downloading it yesterday. All of the books are like this. Post apocalyptic sci-fi was never really my thing, but I guess I can't say that anymore. The dedication at the beginning of book 5 is to narrator, R.C Bray for giving voice to "X", Xavier Rodriguez - a major character. But R.C. does the same for every character. He's the Jimi Hendrix of narration and absolutely brings this series to life. Trust the other reviews, saying, "Just buy the book", and appreciate not just the barn burner of a series that could easily make its way into a screen adaptation - but also for the masterful talent of the narrator, who is clearly in his element.

Good story great listen.

It is a good story but somewhat predictable. The idea is a bit far fetched but that’s what you expect in apocalyptic novels. If you are a fan of RC Bray you will enjoy it.

Unlike any other post-apocalyptic

This was my first Nicolas Sansbury Smith read/ listen, and Ioved it! This is a unique post-apocalyptic story and with the market being completely flooded really says something.

over the top, hero always survive story

I don't mind the dark atmosphere, although a bit force on you, fits the story. What I do mind is artificial tension, from stereotype of the new guy that you know is going to die, time constraints to create the last moment save, evil beings with no preservation instincts and the list can continue. The characters are a bit one dimensional for my taste and everything is as predictive as a Michael Bay movie. Maybe the next books are better .

This was way better than i thought it would be

R C Bray has done a magnificent job with this book, I don't think I'll be able to wait for my credit for the next book purchase. :D
