View: 5362
Now a USA Today bestseller From the bestselling author that brought you the award-winning Extinction Cycle series, comes an all new vision of the apocalypse and the future of humanity. 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 for 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 Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to earth long ago.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 diving 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 that’s far worse than the mutated creatures discovered on dives in the past—something that threatens the fragile future of humanity. "An exciting new take on the end of the world and a thrilling race to survive...Sure to delight fans of survival and postapocalyptic thrillers."—A. G. Riddle, bestselling author of The Atlantis Gene "Relentless action and danger in a gritty postapocalyptic world where survival depends on a few brave men and women. Hell Divers is one hell of a page turner!"—Bob Mayer, New York Times bestselling author of the Area 51 series "An action-packed page-turner. All humanity's hope for survival rests on the shoulders of a handful of daring men and women. The odds are stacked against them, but they have no choice but to try. You won't be able to put this book down until the last searing page. And then you'll want the next book."—Mike Shepherd, New York Times bestselling author of the Kris Longknife series "Literally skydiving into the apocalypse, Hell Divers delivers more of Smith's trademark breakneck action and suspense. Amazing settings, great characters, the end of the world shouldn't be this much fun!"—Matthew Mather, bestselling author of CyberStorm "X marks the spot in Nicholas Sansbury Smith's Hell Divers, a cross between Waterworld and Snowpiercer...but with monsters and airships. It's a terrific blend of high-concept and wild action, all tied together with tough-as-nails characters that you care for as they face impossible odds. A must for fans of smart post apocalyptic storytelling."—Sam Sisavath, bestselling author of the Purge of Babylon series "I love it! The whole book was awesome and I have a huge book hangover right now!...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...If you like post-apocalyptic stories, you should definitely give this one a try!"—Hooked on Books "Hell Divers is an engaging story that holds one's attention from start to finish and will certainly satisfy the readers' need for adventure in a postapocalyptic scenario. The kind of book that can keep you awake till the small hours."—Space and Sorcery "Military SF readers and fans of The Last Ship will find enjoyment in familiar ground."—Publishers Weekly "In Hell Divers, Nicholas Sansbury Smith unleashes post-apocalyptic science-fiction with the pacing of a thriller. He achieves his world-building succinctly, and moves from thrills to chills without the story becoming a mere catalogue of violence, along with tender moments that round out the characters. Hell Divers offers genre fans everything they could ask for, from fresh takes on the post-apocalypse to social commentary reminiscent of Snowpiercer, and plenty of action. The book's swift, tight plotting will also appeal to thriller fans, with a cliffhanger ending that leaves readers suspended mid-air for the rest of a promised trilogy."— Shelf Awareness "Once again, Nicholas Sansbury Smith dominates the post-apocalyptic genre with this riveting, nail-biting adventure that will grip you from the first chapter."—E.E. Giorgi, author of Gene Cards

NATIONAL BESTSELLER WINNER OF THE PULITZER PRIZE The searing, post-apocalyptic novel about a father and son's fight to survive. A father and his son walk alone through burned America. Nothing moves in the ravaged landscape save the ash on the wind. It is cold enough to crack stones, and when the snow falls it is gray. The sky is dark. Their destination is the coast, although they don't know what, if anything, awaits them there. They have nothing; just a pistol to defend themselves against the lawless bands that stalk the road, the clothes they are wearing, a cart of scavenged food—and each other. The Road is the profoundly moving story of a journey. It boldly imagines a future in which no hope remains, but in which the father and his son, "each the other's world entire," are sustained by love. Awesome in the totality of its vision, it is an unflinching meditation on the worst and the best that we are capable of: ultimate destructiveness, desperate tenacity, and the tenderness that keeps two people alive in the face of total devastation.
