This one has a lot more topside action than the first. Also brought the government regulations into it more, while keeping the action level high. ( )

Rip Tide is the second book in Kat Falls’ Dark Life series. This sci-fi/dystopian YA novel is set in a world made up of land-dwellers, ocean-dwellers, and uncivilized "barbaric" people who are suspicious of everyone else. The division of people adds an interesting quality to the book and seems to comment on how we as humans fear and thereby cause conflict with people who are different from us. The book is accessible to both male and female readers and is full of suspense, excitement, and dangers found deep in the ocean (drowning, monsters, hypothermia, etc). Who doesn't love a good scene where the character almost gets eaten by a murderous squid?

If you enjoyed Rick Riordan’s son-of-Poseidon type of mythology), you’ll enjoy this series. Some people possess “dark gifts” which are supernatural talents that make them slightly more than human. The main character, for instance, possesses an ability to use sonar. Technology is now capable of providing humans with a substance that when inhaled, allows a person to breathe underwater.

There’s sea monsters, mystery, kidnapping, and murder. There’s also a light teen love story accompanying this action/adventure story, but it’s definitely secondary to the storyline. When Ty and Gemma accidentally uncover an entire settlement that was trapped and sunk to the bottom of the ocean (a chilling scene involving frozen corpses found chained inside the homes of their sunken township), they find themselves part of a dangerous plot as they attempt to rescue Ty's kidnapped parents.

I jumped into this series with Rip Tide, but the book is fairly accessible for new readers. The plot is slightly complex, despite the length of these novels. The conspiracy aspect and the different types of people in this aquatic world require a slightly more advanced reader who can handle a multi-layered plot.

An interesting book to say the least, full of colourful characters and featuring the dark and deadly side of the ocean-- without frightening young readers. I loved the setting and the world that Kat Falls created. She is a skillful writer and I look forward to reading her latest book, Inhuman. ( )

Earlier this year I read the first in this series, Dark Life, and was blown away by it. RIP TIDE picks up the story a few months later and author, Kat Falls, has not let the pace drop one iota, it is just as good as the first.

Gemma only managed to last living under the sea for three months after Ty and his family took her in. She started to suffer from crippling panic attacks where she just curled up into a ball unable to move. She now sleeps in a tiny cupboard like cabin on the floating Trade Station up on the surface, and is much happier. As long as she doesn't have to enter the water physically Gemma is happy to visit her underwater family in the safety of a submarine. RIP TIDE opens with Ty and Gemma hiding the family’s seaweed harvest in a huge vortex so it doesn’t get stolen prior to market day. Something else is hidden in the Vortex though – a huge floating township has been sunk and chained down there, all the external hatches have been chained and locked from the outside, and all the people who live inside are dead. Who would want to condemned hundreds of people to an icy underwater grave and why?

The next day Ty’s parents are kidnapped as they make their first big sale with another floating township. When the kidnapping is reported to the Sea Guard they do not seem to be making it a priority to find and rescue them; Gemma and Ty decide to investigate the kidnapping on their own. Their investigation leads them to the extremely dangerous Rip Tide where Gemma’s brother Shade is about to star in a big fight. In a frantic race against the clock, Ty and Gemma find themselves fighting for their very lives against phobias, outlaws, Sea Guard officers, trident-wielding topsiders and some very deadly critters.

RIP TIDE, and its predecessor DARK LIFE, is very much like an underwater western – there are settlers, bandits, people who carry out their own justice and a distant government which doesn’t much care for its frontier population; having said that I dislike westerns – whereas I loved this. There are some really, really nasty characters in this book – very nasty. Being a YA book though there is no in your face blood and guts. Sometimes telling is more scary than showing. I do hope there will be more in this series.
