The Dark Life series written by author Kat Falls is comprised of a total of two books released between 2010 and 2011. It revolves around a futuristic adventure that takes place in deep undersea. It features the characters in the form of the first subsea settlers, who defend their settlement against outlaws. In this apocalyptic world, all the land has been swallowed by rising oceans and people are forced to live in a deep-sea environment. At the center of the plot, the readers get to see Ty Townsend and Gemma. Throughout his life, Ty has lived on the homestead of his family. He dreams to claim his stake once he reaches the age of 18. In order to make his dreams come true, Ty is required to prove his worth. When the events of attacks by outlaws on the settlements and government supply ships increase widely, Ty decides to fight the outlaws and protect his people.

The pioneers of the Benthic Territory’s undersea community carry out farming on the ocean floor and send the harvests to the government. In exchange for the harvests, they get to keep their homesteads. This exchange system was taking place peacefully for many years until the outlaws decided to attack the community’s shipment to the government. Upon facing the danger of losing the only home known to him, Ty Townsend tries everything in his capacity to keep the outlaws away and ensure the safety of his community. While he continues his fight against the outlaws, he learns that a girl has come to the community in search of her brother. Identifying herself as Gemma, the girl claims that Ty is her brother and she has come to provide a helping hand to him. The two join hands and move ahead in their quest. They go on to discover several important secrets related to the Dark Life that were kept buried for many years. The setting of the book is well-developed and feels plausible. To add to the excitement of the story, there is nonstop action and interesting characters. All these factors make this story an exciting read.

The next installment of the series is the 2011 novel entitled ‘Rip Tide’. It continues from where the previous novel had ended and proceeds with the adventures of Gemma and Ty Townsend. The story opens by showing that the parents of Ty get abducted while selling their crops. As a result, Ty & Gemma set out to find them. They race against time to find Ty’s parents and their search leads them to the underworld under the sea. When nothing seemed to be going their way, they reluctantly form an alliance with the Seablite Gang outlaws. During the course of their search mission, Gemma and Ty come across many mysteries that they unravel and proceed further. They suspect something very sinister behind the disappearance of a whole township and the sudden increase in the aggressive nature of the local sea life. While working with the Seablite Gang, they keep wondering whether they are doing the right thing by trusting them. Soon, they realize that they have landed themselves in a much more dangerous situation than they were suspecting. The plus point of this book is its likable characters and interesting setup, which helped it to attract readers from all corners of the world.
