Publisher's Summary

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling series.

Humanity has finally found a new home, but the price is blood....

After a long, perilous journey, Hell Divers Xavier Rodriguez and Magnolia Katib discover the Metal Islands, a sunny, habitable zone where thousands of people live by fishing and farming. But this "paradise" is really a violent warrior society ruled by the cannibal King el Pulpo. For the first time in X's life, he is forced to lay down his arms and surrender. 

Back on the airships, the Hell Divers are recovering from a gruesome discovery at Red Sphere, where they learned the truth about World War III. Now, they must fight another war - this time for what remains of their own endangered species. As the battle approaches, alliances will be forged and others broken. 

Forced to fight in the Cazador army, X faces his toughest mission yet. Will he help his people come down from the sky and claim the promised land, or will humanity go extinct?

Best one yet.

This was one heck of a ride!! I couldn't read this fast enough and never wanted to put it down. There is so much I want to say about what happens, but it would spoil things. X, Magnolia, Rodger, Miles and all the other characters are put through the ringer and I gasped, cried and was with the throughout the ordeals.

The author has an amazing ability to create characters we care about, and there are so many in this series that I root for. When X went off with certain people and they encountered something, the action sequences left me breathless. My heart went out to Magnolia, and it was in my mouth the whole time because of Miles. Then when you add in Tim and everyone else, I was on the edge of my seat.

This book was everything I was hoping it would be and more. I devoured it and am so looking forward to the next one. Be prepared because when you dive into this one, you won't want to come up for air.

RC Bray is a phenomenal narrator and always delivers an amazing performance. His tone for X is perfect and he doesn't just read this, he preforms it.

Brilliant addition to the series!

Just when I think this series can’t get better, it does! X is just such a perfectly messed up hero you have to love him. The man doesn’t know the word defeat either and you don’t want to be on his bad side. So many great characters in this book all playing their part and doing what is necessary to help keep the human race going against seemly insurmountable odds. This book has it all: thrills and surprises, love and loss, and the human spirit’s will to fight and never give up.

If your looking to read this as the first book the author does a good job of keeping you informed, but the series is so great why would you not want to start from the beginning? You don’t want to cheat yourself out of all the other great adventures of X and the crew.

My favorite by far, I constantly felt my breath being stolen away as X and his team continue their fight so humanity can survive.

As always, another awesome story from Nicholas

I’ve been following the Hell Divers from book 1 in both written and audible versions. These stories never fail to keep me on the edge, wondering what else could happen to our beloved characters. In a post-apocalyptic world, the dangers come at them from every angle and the writer weaves the story in a fast paced and vivid telling that is only brought to life even more by the narrator. If you haven’t started this series, what are you waiting for? You will not be disappointed.

Another great dive into chaos .

A fast paced action riddled free fall of set piece stunts and harrowing situations makes for a great story. Solid narration and characters let the minds eye visualize this as a post apocalyptic blockbuster epic mind movie. I loved it!

Think Waterworld but well written, a great storyline and fantastic ''acting'' in the form of RC Bray. Great edition to the series expanding the world of the survivors brilliantly so the sky is no longer the limit.

Just great.

There is always a worry with series of books that they get weaker as they go along but not with this series. From the start I just couldn’t stop listening and now that it’s finished I can’t wait for the next one.

Love this series

This is just another excellent book from the Hell Divers series. The characters and story leave you on the edge of your seat not able to put the book on hold. I love all the characters and their strength. I hope there are more to come because I need more! Love RC Bray as a narrator he definitely brings all the characters alive.

Another amazing book in this series from Nicholas Sansbury Smith! And like always, bought to life by the legend himself R.C Bray.
This seriously needs to be made into a tv series!
