Tomorrow is another big day for the Keystroke Medium Show. Nicholas Sansbury Smith, author of Hell Divers and the Extinction Cycle, kindly agreed to be interviewed. Here is the Facebook link.
I noticed the Hell Divers book when it came out and was interested. Like a lot of readers these days, my to-be-read pile is rather deep and wide. Josh Hayes, my co-host at Keystroke Medium, gave it the thumbs up and said he basically listened to the audio book straight through. So I figured I better see what it was all about.
The premise of Hell Divers is this: humanity survived the aftermath of World War III in a fleet of airships never designed for the purpose. Two hundred and fifty years later, give or take, the last of humanity struggles to keep their homes flying. The Hell Divers must parachute to the surface and scavenge for supplies and parts amongst the worst conditions imaginable.
There are several character view points, well balanced to keep the story moving and the suspense level high. Like really high.
This is a fast paced book I recommend to fans of science fiction, military science fiction, and post apocalypse stories. Read my review here.
