Dark Life by Kat Falls

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live underwater? In this young adult book with a dystopian future, dry land is a rarity and some people have settled into life in the ocean. Ty, our main character, has lived his entire life in the ocean and was the first baby born under the
sea. He meets a girl who lives on land, referred to as a "topsider", named Gemma and they form a unique relationship. Gemma is looking for her brother who may be lost in the ocean somewhere. This story is packed with action and adventure and has a western feel to it between there being pioneers, who are settling into the ocean life, and the bad guys who Ty and Gemma have to battle that are the outlaws of the sea.
I enjoyed this book because of the setting and thinking this could really become a future if global warming took over and the oceans rose. The author gives us everything with adventure, action, fighting, and romance. If you enjoy any of these kinds of books, you will enjoy Dark Life.
This book has a sequel titled Rip Tide, which is equally as good.
