Overview

The sequel to the acclaimed subsea adventure DARK LIFE.

Ty has always known that the ocean is a dangerous place. Every time he swims beyond the borders of his family's subsea farm, he's prepared to face all manner of aquatic predators-sharks, squid, killer whales . . .

What Ty isn't prepared to find in the deep is an entire township chained to a sunken submarine, its inhabitants condemned to an icy underwater grave. It's only the first clue to a mystery that has claimed hundreds of lives and stands to claim two more -- lives very precious to Ty and his Topsider ally, Gemma.

Now in a desperate race against the clock, Ty and Gemma find themselves in conflict with outlaws, Seaguard officers, and the savage, trident-wielding surfs -- plus a menagerie of the most deadly creatures the ocean has to offer.

Kat Falls brings to life the mysteries, marvels, and monsters of the deep in this fast-paced and inventive action-adventure.

    Awesome series!!!!!!!

    One day my friend came up to me and told me to read dark life and that it is amazing. I looked at the cover and told him no that i was not interested. He told me i had to read it. As i began reading i got more interested in the book. This book was full of adventure and had a bit of romance to make the book better than it already is. I loved dark life. Now iwant to know lf the second book any good. Because i dont want to spend eleven dollars on a book if i dont like it.

    A fantastic middle grade science fiction series!

    Rip Tide by Kat Falls is the action-packed sequel to Dark Life, an undersea fish tale that made me give a cheer for the resurgence of science fiction in middle grade. Ty, the pioneer boy born and raised subsea after The Rising flooded the earth and made land scarce, is the center of the story. Ty's Dark Gift of biosonar is put to good use in Rip Tide as he battles surfs (surfeit population), topsiders (those who live on the scraps of land left) and a severe looking SeaGuard Captain (the Commonweath's police) in a desperate search to find his kidnapped parents. Falls brings to life the Wild West lifestyle of this amazingly realized world, and her crisp, fast paced storytelling makes this novel breathless to the end. Where's my liquigen (Ty's deep-sea breathing liquid)?

    I love the way Falls packs her story with undersea creatures and technology that kids will love. Her inventive use of slang draws you deep into the pioneer mindset, while she paints a world that is rugged, yet beautiful. Ty is a boy who loves the sea, is part of it, and has a sense of joy in the wonders of the deep comes shining through.

    There are a few chaste kisses in this story and Ty's achingly sweet love for topsider Gemma gives this story appeal for both boys and girls. There's quite a bit of violence in Ty's brutal world, so I wouldn't recommend for readers who are disturbed by shark attacks or bad guys willing to kill to get what they want. For that reason, I recommend Rip Tide for readers 10+ (same as my rating for Dark Life). But I can't recommend this book highly enough and I hope to see many more great novels from Falls in the future. I hear there's a movie in the works for Dark Life!! Which would be awesome with a shine (the glow that undersea pioneers acquire).

    Great Fantasy Novel

    Rip Tide is a book set in the future, but unlike most books today it isn't really based on a distopia. Sure, there are problems with the Wealth but I really liked how it was more fantasy-adventure than anything else. I'm surprised more people haven't read it! If you love fantasy and under the ocean stuff (Sorry, I don't know how else to put it) then I would definately recommend this book.

    Great Book for young teens

    I purchased this for my son, and ended up reading it. I thought the characters were developed well, the plot was exciting, and it was not predictable. Good read.
