The New York Times and USA Today bestselling series

Humanity has finally found a new home, but the price is blood ...

After a long, perilous journey, Hell Divers Xavier Rodriguez and Magnolia Katib discover the Metal Islands, a sunny habitable zone where thousands of people live by fishing and farming. But this "paradise" is really a violent warrior society ruled by the cannibal king el Pulpo. For the first time in X's life, he is forced to lay down his arms and surrender.

Back on the airships, the Hell Divers are recovering from a gruesome discovery at Red Sphere, where they learned the truth about World War III. Now they must fight another war—this time for what remains of their own endangered species. As the battle approaches, alliances will be forged, and others broken.

Forced to fight in the Cazador army, X faces his toughest mission yet. Will he help his people come down from the sky and claim the promised land, or will humanity go extinct?

This was a great book. Amazing story. It’s fast paced and pulls you into the story. I loved it! There were some tense moments! Amazing end to the book.

All the Hell Diver books are incredible! Each book I hungrily devour and afterwards I am left in stunned awe. I enjoy the character stories, the depth of emotion and the intricate and detailed storyline. In this installation the word home becomes prominent but the war wages on. I enjoyed this book I think the most in the series. I find I ask myself: Could you dive so humanity survives? This book, the whole series really, is well worth every second it takes to read it and every penny it cost to buy it (which wasn’t much at all).

Hell Divers is a truly amazing series and this latest installment did not disappoint.!! From start to finish, I had a hard time putting this book down. I could never come up with this stuff in my wildest dreams. This series is a definite must read.

I started the Hell Divers series not knowing what I was getting into. The 1st had me hooked and they keep getting better and better. Hell Divers 5 has to be the best yet. In a post-apocalyptic world that is still uninhabitable 250 years since humanity destroyed itself, a lone group search for one place to start over. It's a battle they cannot lose! Nicholas Sansbury Smith has written what may be his best book yet, and that's saying a lot. From Trackers to Extinction Cycle and now Hell Divers V, Captives will keep you entertained and thrilled from page 1 to the last page.

What an amazing story! I have been really looking forward to book 5 as book 4 left me wanting more to the story. Usually I can pace myself to make a book last, but not this one....it’s that good. I love Nick’s style of writing and editing is top notch

Some small spoilers ahead: I love the way Nick Sansbury Smith writes. I've followed him since Orbs and I will say each story is better than the last. There are so many threads in this story line, and so much tension, that it's hard to put the book down. In HDV: Captives, there is the story of X, an older Hell Diver who has survived the surface for years, and now has to return to not fight for survival, but kind of fight for sport with Rhino, and the Cazadores. He's also worried about Magnolia, who is about to become the forced wife of the leader of the Metal Islands. Oh, and the Cazadores are cannibals by the way. Katrina is fighting her own battle trying to get to the Metal Islands with a group of rookie Hell Divers (including Jed Snow who is I think the third "Jed" to die in a Nick Smith book). There's the Hive of course, and then there's Michael, Les and Red Sphere. It's all great, and I highly recommend this series.

This story is violent, dark and exceptionally heartbreaking. The action is well done, the descriptions of the world and its people is real. It's so well done, that it is the reason I don't like parts of this book. I love learning about how the world got to be this way. I really enjoyed seeing it all come together at the end. But sadly, as NSS is wont to do, we lose people we've grown to love. Yes it propels the story forward, yes it is a time of war, but damnitman! Some people should just be off-limits! If you haven't started the series, DO IT. Thank me later =)

The battle for a new home on the Earth’s surface has begun and the occupants of the airships Hive and Deliverance are about to come face-to-face with the cannibal psychopath known as El Pulpo and his minions. All hell breaks loose in this 5th installment of the fantastic Hell Divers series. No spoilers here but you WILL be blown away by the climactic ending.
