Read in January, 2010

In a future America where rising seas have claimed much of the land, leaving Topsiders to pack themselves in tiny stacked apartments, some people have taken to the ocean. These pioneers live on the ocean floor, farming the sea and sending crops to the government in exchange for their homesteads. This is where Ty Townsend has lived all his life. He was the first child to be born in the undersea community of Benthic Territory and he loves it there. But when outlaws threaten the safety of the settlers, Ty must do what he can to save the only home he's ever known. And when a Topsider girl appears, searching for her prospector brother, she'll join him on his quest and together they'll find that there are secrets being kept about the Dark Life.

Oh, this one's going to be big. The setting is a really well-developed take on new pioneers reminiscent of the Old West, but, of course, set deep undersea. It really feels plausible, which is a mark of a well-developed world. The action is nonstop and you'd better hang on because DARK LIFE will take you for a ride and you're not gonna want to let go.

More closer to the pub date on my blog. Put this one on your TBR-lists, kids. You won't want to miss it.
