    "I'm (sadly) the furthest thing from a young adult at this stage of my life, but this book brought me right back to my childhood. An excellent introduction to the Matt Cruse series even if you thought a "steampunk" was a young hoodlum with steam coming out his ears. Try it...I guarantee you won't be able to put it down."

    "I recently had to switch over to audio books because my eyesight has gotten so bad. The first audio book I purchased was Hell Divers. I'm impressed! I thought it would be tough to transition over to listening to books rather than reading them. Not true. This book about science fiction airships kept me engaged throughout."

    "This is the first in a series, it's award winning, and it has it all: Airships, Zombies, Alternate History, and the suspense and action you'd expect! It centers around a mother trying to save her son, but these tidbits make it stand out from the rest."

    "The best sci-fi book featuring airships is Strangers From the Sky (Star Trek). When an alien spacecraft crashlands in the South Pacific bearing visitors from another world, the Vulcans, Earth must decide whether to extend the hand of friendship, or the fist of war. For fans of the sci-fi genre and Star Trek, this book is an entertaining storyline set on earth."

    "If you love sci-fi and you love airships, it doesn't get better than this book, especially if you're a Star Wars fan. Set in the time between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, this is an awesome glimpse into what was happening in the Star Wars galaxy before the new movies picked up the plot. It's full of familiar Star Wars ideas and themes, while introducing enough that's new to be really interesting in its own right. My highest recommendation for sci-fi lovers."
