Tamsen Donner must be a witch. That is the only way to explain the series of misfortunes that have plagued the wagon train known as the Donner Party. Depleted rations, bitter quarrels, and the mysterious death of a little boy have driven the pioneers to the brink of madness. They cannot escape the feeling that someone - or something - is stalking them. Whether it was a curse from the beautiful Tamsen, the choice to follow an experimental route West, or just bad luck - the 90 men, women, and children of the Donner Party are at the brink of one of the deadliest adventures in history.
Intense, visceral, excellent read

Not bad, not great, but worth a listen
Little tedious at time and I wasn't sold on the narration, so 3/5. That's average and there's nothing wrong with that at all. Not a waste of time by any means, it had me definitely tripping the edge of my seat at times! Worth a listen for sure.

- The Hell Divers Series, Book 1
- By: Nicholas Sansbury Smith
- Narrated by: R. C. Bray
- Length: 10 hrs and 11 mins
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 Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago.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 diving to the surface to scavenge for parts the ships desperately need.
I usually don't read my SciFi however....!!

Great performance, poor story
The writing, character actions, and dialog are all quite poor and clichéd. Interesting concept executed poorly, although the narration is superb.
