Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A very satisfying postapocalyptic sci-fi…If this was turned into a movie, I’d be there on opening night…I loved it.” Scott Sigler, New York Times bestselling author of the Generations trilogy
“Smith really knows how to deliver a powerful story.” Orson Scott Card
“Ably narrated by R. C. Bray, this complete and unabridged audio book production is a ‘must’ for all Hell Diver fans as a natural conclusion to an outstanding post-holocaust science fiction trilogy, but can be listened to as an individual ‘stand alone’ story, making it highly recommended for personal as well as community library science fiction audiobook collections.” Midwest Book Review (audio review)

Enjoyed

Not a series i would normally read but on recommendation from an Audible editor I took a chance. I listened to the first two immediately and then the third as soon as it came out. I hope the stories continue.

Tugged At My Emotions

The month of May needs to cool it a bit.  I've read more great books at the start of May than I think I did in all of 2018.  My biggest bummer is that technically the series could end now - but I think Smith has another book in the works.  But it's literally in the works - meaning I'll have to wait probably another year until I get Hell Divers 4.

Warning - my review of Hell Divers 3: Deliverance will most likely contain spoilers to the other two books.  Obviously being the third book in a series - if you're reading this review before checking out book 1 - just do yourself a favor - grab it in audio and enjoy.  Don't even read on.  Okay, now that I've gotten rid of the Hell Divers newbies (those who would most likely die on their first dive) lets dive into the review (pun intended).

Deliverance tells the continued story of the airship trying to survive, the Hell Divers who dive so that humanity survives, X's life on the surface, along with Tin's continued survival and search for X. Without ruining the book - that's what it's about.  There was a lot going on in this one, but it was a friggin blast to read from beginning to end.

I honestly don't know how long it took me to listen to this, but I think it was 2 days total.  I started it, stayed up WAY too late, listened on my way into work, sat in my car and waited for my grin to subside, and couldn't wait to listen when I got home from work today.  It was one of those books that I literally couldn't wait to listen to more.

Smith has a way of writing that really draws your emotions out.  You feel for X, Tim, the lower-deckers on the ship.  You also feel hatred for the captain and the things that he's done to X, Tin, and the people on the ship. Normally a book can tear at my heartstrings but Smith found a way to make me emotionally invested in these characters.  Sure, he throws in a dog that I cannot get enough of to sucker me more, but I was hooked without the dog.

I want to describe a scene but I know it'll ruin a large reveal - but needless to say - there was a scene about 70ish percent through the book where there was finally a reveal.  It had me grinning from ear to ear and I think I actually made an audible noise when it happened.  I was so excited.  I didn't want to get out of my car and go to work.

R.C. Bray is masterful at his craft.  Hell Divers III was no different.  He voices X perfectly (even his changing voice throughout this story) and was able to add another level to a book that I didn't think could get any better.

If you've somehow ignored my plea to not read this before reading the first book and are still on the fence - what are you waiting for.  Take the dive!

I was offered a free copy of this audiobook - it has not affected my review in any way.
