Publisher's Summary

The ocean rose, swallowing up the lowlands. Earthquakes shattered the continents, toppling entire regions into the rising water. Now, humans live packed into stack cities. The only ones with any space of their own are those who live on the ocean floor, the Dark Life. Ty has spent his whole life living deep undersea, helping his family farm the ocean floor. But when outlaws attack his homestead, Ty finds himself in a fight to save the only home he has ever known.
Joined by Gemma, a girl from the Topside who has come subsea to look for her brother, Ty ventures into the frontier’s rough underworld and discovers some dark secrets to Dark Life...secrets that threaten to destroy everything.
In Dark Life, Kat Falls has created a breathtaking world where the deep can be dangerous, the darkness can be deadly, and sometimes it takes extraordinary power to survive.

Great Family Read!

I listened to Dark Life with my kids--21, 18, 15 on a car trip. We were captivated! Ms. Falls creates a believable undersea world in a future where global warming has greatly reduced the livable land on Earth. Her characters are bright, witty and adventurous and we thoroughly enjoyed our peek into their lives. Look for the sequel, Riptide, also a great read! Narrator Keith Nobbs voice the parts perfectly. Dark Life has been optioned for a movie, and author Kat Falls plans five books total in this engaging series. Highly recommended!

No more "How much longer" only "press play"

Would you consider the audio edition of Dark Life to be better than the print version?

We had 2 round trips car tripsin 3 weekend span (about 30 hrs worth), and my son needed to get in his reading time in and he can not read in a car. I got this intending to load it on his iPod and get an another book for hubby and Myself. My husband and I read the reviews and decided to listen as a family. We all thoroughly enjoyed it! (Ages 43,42,12,9).

What about Keith Nobbs’s performance did you like?

The story and narration where so good my 9 year old said he felt like he was watching a movie because he could see everything so clearly in his mind.

Any additional comments?

We got Riptide for the second leg. Everyone was so looking forward to it and it did not disappoint.
