"Today We Dive So Humanity Survives!"

— feeling grin
Hell Divers (Hell Divers Trilogy Book 1) - Nicholas Sansbury Smith

"Today we dive so humanity survives" is the motto of the Hell Divers who risk their lives to dive to the earth's surface to scavenge for parts to keep their last two surviving airships in the air. Pretty cool slogan huh?! I think it is-I love it! The whole book was awesome and I have a huge book hangover right now!


I totally loved the airship setting and the dives to the surface. It was creative and intense and there was never a dull moment. I got so wrapped up in the story I felt like I was immersed in this whole other world for a little while. Another thing I loved about the story, there was hardly any cheesy romance in it. There were a few, very minor scenes but that was it. The plot stayed focus on the divers and the survival of the airships. The ending though had the mother of all cliffhangers but I'm not going to truly accept what happened at the end until I read the next book to see for myself. Which sucks for me because the next book has not even been written yet and I need that book right now!


I've come across several of the authors books before but I've never read any until this one. I can't believe I waited so long. I plan to read them now though while I'm waiting for the next book in this series to release. If you like post-apocalyptic stories, you should definitely give this one a try!
