Books From The Backlog-Hell Divers


Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf.  You might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks. Go to Carole's blog and add your blog post link in to join in the fun! Hosted by Carole at https://carolesrandomlife.blogspot.co.uk/

This seems like a fun feature and I have been planning to take part since Carole launched this so at last, here we go! I have a TON of unread books to choose from in various genres and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with everybody. 


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 of 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 Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to earth long ago.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 skydiving 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 far worse than the mutated creatures discovered on dives in the past--something that threatens the fragile future of humanity.

I first discovered this author when I read the first of his Extinction Cycle books about zombie style variant humans. I automatically looked to see what other books he had written and found Orbs, Hell Divers and Trackers back in 2016. Orbs was ok but not really to my taste but this book certainly caught the eye and I do plan to get reading it hopefully some time this year.

  1. The description, with airships, seems to have an almost steampunk vibe. But with it being after WWIII, I don't see how that could be.

    1. It sounds like a kind of futuristic steampunk doesn't it? I think this is why I'm constantly shuffling it down the reading order-I don't like steampunk at all!

  2. This was actually the first of his books to catch my eye. When the first two books were on sale, I grabbed them. Now, I just need to read them. Hopefully, we'll both get it read by the end of the year. Haha!

    1. I like the idea of the story but it does sound a bit steampunk which I'm not a fan of. I will need to get to it soon though!
