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 Aging and outdated, most of the ships plummeted back to Earth long ago.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.

There are so many illogical and scientific inconsistencies in this book, the problems occurr because all the characters are just stupid, even a moment would give someone time to prepare.

If you love Robert Jordan or Terry goodkind or anybody of that caliber then you have to read this. But be warned these books are dark fantasy and the things that happen in them are not good things.

Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­­ - an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.

The year was 2014. We had cured cancer. We had beat the common cold. But in doing so we created something new, something terrible that no one could stop. The infection spread, virus blocks taking over bodies and minds with one, unstoppable command: FEED.

well written and well read and entertaining but...

The anti-religion message is made very clear by the portrayal of Christians as degenerate and mostly less intelligent. Tell me if there is no God, then what does it matter? Where do you get your "moral" values to say anything is wrong? Survival of the most successful regardless of your actions right?
