Summary

The New York Times and USA Today best-selling series  

They dive so humanity survives. Now they take to the sea. 

In the fourth installment of the award-winning and USA Today best-selling Hell Divers series, the Sea Wolf sets out to search for the Metal Islands. Leading the expedition is legendary Hell Diver Xavier Rodriguez. After enduring for a decade on the poisoned surface, his survival skills will be put to the test on the dangerous open seas. 

But storms, sea monsters, and the cannibalistic Cazadores aren't the only threat to X and his small crew. Their mission will uncover hard truths about the history of the war that left humankind stranded in the air for centuries. And the fate of those still living on the airships might very well rest on this fragile and perilous journey to find a new home.

Hmmm maybe taking a turn

I thought this series was great. Then I listened to this one.
I’m hoping it’s not another cliche ending.

Best Yet!!!

Book 4 sees a change of pace for all involved.... Ha, only kidding, this is a Smith book after all!! The book starts with an absolute bang and doesn't let up. I devoured this as fast as I could and forwent sleep to finish!!

Literally within the few pages the ship that X, Magnolia and Miles are on is attacked by a giant monster! They have their hands full and things are extremely tense. The author makes it such a way that you can't see what's coming. My heart was in my mouth because I didn't know what was going to happen. In fact, through out the whole book, I was kept on tenderhooks because I had no clue where the plot was going!! There are so many twists and turns that it was impossible to tell.

Then we have the characters that are on the airships. At the end of the last book, they had managed to get another airship, Deliverance, and with that, life upon the ships have gotten better for all. Yet the Hell Divers are still needed and their latest dive is going to test even the hardest one! Certain things come to light when the Divers land on an island that will shake them to the core.

There is so much I want to say about the plot and what is revealed, and what happens to certain characters and what happens to other characters, but I can't!!!! I truly believe that this is Smith's best work to date. The pacing never lets up and the characters will squeeze your heart. So much is revealed and so much is set in place for the next in the series! You can just tell that everything the author does here is a set up for what's sure to be an explosive end!

This author has never failed to deliver an amazing read, and this one is no different. Its everything you could want in a book!! Jam packed with action, adventure, edge of your seat pacing, characters that will captivate you and a story you will fall in love with. Absolutely epic installment in one of my favourite series! Highly, Highly recommend.

RC Bray is phenomenal no matte what he narrates, but here he is even better. He brings the intense atmosphere to life and never lets up. He has such an amazing array of tones and voices and it's always easy to follow who's talking. Its like listening to a full cast performance.

More post-apocalyptic action

This book picks up shortly after the end of Deliverance with X and Magnolia aboard the Sea Wolf looking for the Metal Islands as a potential home on the surface. Of course finding that new home is really just an excuse that X used to justify this mission and his real agenda is to kill the leader of the cannibalistic Cazadores who live in the Metal Islands. X quickly finds out that the sea is just as dangerous as the land and the mission goes south quickly as all manner of unexpected obstacles need to be overcome. The action sequences come one after another and let up just long enough for the story arc to move forward as the true cause of the war that devastated the planet is finally discovered.

While things remain dangerous for X and Magnolia on the sea, up in the sky circumstances have gotten much better. Captain DaVita has two airships at her disposal and the quality of life for the inhabitants has greatly improved, although a settled life in the air isn't for everyone. X may have an ulterior motive for seeking the Metal Islands but Captain DaVita actually wants that new home down on the surface and she will do whatever it takes to make that happen, even risking that new found stability.

This book jumps from one action sequence to another and just when it was starting to feel like it might be mostly filler the story arc progresses just enough and the ending leaves you wanting more. I have grown to care about the characters and I can't wait for the next installment to see how it plays out. R. C. Bray has established himself as one of the best narrators around and he delivers another excellent performance here. His performance as X is spot on.

Can't Catch a break

X just can't catch a break!! As tough as he is the situation always catches him flat footed. But if I know X, he always has an end game and I am looking forward to Hell Divers V - They dive so humanity can survive. This is a good series to read, action packed, gripping and a page turner. If this were a movie, it would have to be seen as the Star Wars movies, to which we were all looking forward to the next release.

A great day for Hell Divers fans!

There is plenty going on in this story and all of it will make your pulse race. X is back and he is neck-deep in trouble, battling horrific mutations both on land and sea. This poor guy just cannot catch a break.

Meanwhile, high above on the Hive and Deliverance, Captain DaVita is working on a plan to relocate the occupants of the airships to a relatively small, non-toxic area on the surface of the Earth that is currently inhabited by a psychopath and his minions. HD4 continues the author's legacy of crazy-great writing combined with top notch action scenes. R.C. Bray always does a spot-on job portraying these characters.

builds on the last books

at the end of book 3 I thought ok they have good closing point for the current story arc. book for picks up with new issues and information that doesn't seem like the author is milking every drop of the world he has built. I never felt a deja vu moment. good listen and well narrated as usual by RC Bray.

At first I was all 😒, then I was all 😲

Perhaps because there was more time between book 3 and 4 than there was between 1, 2 and 3 for me, I wasn't super excited to jump back into this series. Don't get me wrong, I loved 1-3, and preordered 4 immediately, but I was just.. meh.

That didn't get any better as I started listening. I felt like 3 ended at a good place and 4 was just trying to drum up interest and suspense again. With X back in rotation, there's not much from the first trilogy to follow up on. His dynamic with Magnolia felt a bit weird (which I suppose is apt given he was used to being alone for a decade) and I didn't really find Katrina as captain more interesting than the role she played in book 3.

That said, there's a point where new discoveries and revelations are made and it becomes clear that Smith has a direction in mind for the next few books. It's not just one event in the book I can point to, but a sequence of them as well as information slowly dropped during those events that got me excited and intrigued again. I mean... we begin to get a clearer picture of humanity's past, and possible future here. Exciting stuff.

Like the others, this book ends on a comfy cliffhanger. It's a solid book on its own and most everything feels resolved, but there's definitely potential for more, and I can't wait to experience it.

It goes without saying that RC Bray did a phenomenal job as narrator.

Another outstanding book in this series.

This is one of my favorite book series. The storyline is so different from anything else I have read or listened to. R. C. Bray does a wonderful job of narrating as always. Thank you Nicholas Sansbury Smith. I am looking forward to book five.
