I just finished reading an Advanced Reading Copy of this book and it was awesome, just like the other four books in the series. I will do a more extensive review as the publishing date in May 2019 gets closer.
And, as always, I will be buying this book when it comes out because I want to support this author.
April 29, 2019: I just finished re-reading HELL DIVERS V and what an adventure it was. This is one of my favorite series by author Smith. 260 years in the future after World War III decimated the world, there's finally a glimmer of hope for the survivors who we've followed in the series who live in a huge airship high in the sky.
There's talk of Metal Islands in an uncontaminated area of the ocean where the sun actually shines. A prior team of Hell Divers went to investigate and are now missing.
Non-stop action, human cruelty, human bravery and the possibility that after 260 years their search might be over - but at what cost?
This is my favorite of this series so far and that's saying a lot. One thing I truly appreciate about author Smith he writes quickly. I've already pre-ordered HELL DIVERS VI due out in November 2019. And of course I've pre-ordered HELL DIVERS V even though I get Advanced Reading Copies of his books but this is definitely an author I want to support.
I received an Advanced Reading Copy of this book from Blackstone Publishing and Edelweiss in the hopes that I would read the book and leave an unbiased review. No problem there.
