Daniel Sandoval has had versions of this story haunting his fevered mind for decades, and the only way to placate a frustrated muse is to manifest something, to entangle her with at least the threads of what may lead to fulfillment. Whether these lines weave a snare or tapestry, ultimately, it matters not, for the story is told and he is freed to his next literary campaign.
While telling this tale, the author sought other pursuits, as when he married a woman his equal in will and spirit and intellect—an arrangement not entered into by the fainthearted. And Mr. Sandoval continued his tenure as an elected official of a city in the western United States.
This is his fourth published novel, and his first work of science fiction, should he be pressed to label its genre. As with all his books, they defy categorization. This is also a romance, a character study, and a theological essay.
Left for dead on the nightmarish surface of the planet, Commander Michael Everhart and his team of Hell Divers barely escape with their lives aboard a new airship called Deliverance. After learning that Xavier “X” Rodriguez may still be alive, they mount a rescue mission for the long-lost hero.
In the skies, the Hive is falling apart, but Captain Jordan is more determined than ever to keep humanity in their outdated lifeboat. He will do whatever it takes to keep the ship in the air—even murder. But when he learns the Hell Divers he exiled have found Deliverance, he changes course for a new mission—find the divers, kill them, and make their new ship his own.
In the third installment of the USA Today bestselling Hell Divers series, Michael and his fellow divers fight across the mutated landscape in search of X. But what they find will change everything.
