If You Like Nicholas Sansbury Smith Books, You’ll Love…

Hell Divers is the first book in the series of the same name. The premise being this one is very unique as in the post-World War III world, the earth has become uninhabitable. Humanity survives in ships that orbit the Earth. Some ships have long since crashed and the ones still orbiting need parts to repair themselves. That’s where the Hell Divers come in, an elite group that dives down to the planet’s surface to scavenge the fallen ships. The Hell Divers head down for a mission in thi first book and find something that will threaten humanity itself.

The Extinction Cycle is another great series from Smith and the first book is called Exctinction Horizon. This book follows the Delta Force Team, an elite squad that has been through some hellish missions, but never lost a man. That all could change when the team is called in after a variant strain of the Ebola virus is turning men into monsters. The Ghost Team will have to protect Dr. Kate Lovato long enough for her to find a cure. The extinction of the human race is not out of the question.
