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. Download and start listening now!


Quotes & Awards

  • “No shortage of action, intrigue, or daring exploits in this aquatic thriller. Atmospheric and tense, built around an expertly used postapocalyptic–meets–Wild West setting, this story’s a whole lot of fun and won't disappoint fans.” 

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Falls is good at creating a sense of the cultural fabric of her imaginary worlds.” 


  • “Readers will empathize with the subsea pioneers, such as Ty’s parents hoping to develop a viable economy based on harvesting laver, a highly edible seaweed, and will relate to Captain Revas and her sometimes-misguided authoritarian decisions to protect the peace in her territory. Readers will immerse themselves in this burgeoning new world that leaves the door open for more adventures.

    " What a great book! If you've read Dark Life, you should read Rip Tide, its sequel. Ty and Gemma are dealing with some truly evil people and grossly horrible creatures. I dare say I liked this one even more than the first. It will be available in the library on Monday! "

    " Very good sequel to Dark Life. I wonder if there will be a third in the series. This gives readers grounds for thinking on the value of maintaining an ecological balance! "
