It's the future. Kat Falls’ second book, Rip Tide, takes place in a world where sea levels have risen and half of the world’s population have been driven out of their homes. So now, most people live underwater. Selling kelp and diving for sunken treasure, Ty’s family has it pretty good. Until one day, while making a trade with the captain of Drift, one of the largest townships in the ocean, Ty’s parents get kidnapped. With his close friend Gemma, a girl who ran away from her home on the surface, Ty tries to track down Shade, Gemma’s brother, and ask for his help. But Ty soon learns that this is not the only problem. Someone is anchoring townships, causing the hundreds of people inside to either suffocate or freeze to death. Searching the vast corners of the ocean, and encountering new allies and enemies, they soon find out that the REAL enemy is the one you never expect.
I enjoyed both Dark Life and Rip Tide, both give a fun and adventurous look at the
ocean, and also a sort of precautionary warning about what COULD happen if sea levels get too high. But read Dark Life first, because you'll be really confused about what's going on if you don’t This book is jam-packed full of twists and turns, and definitely a must-read.
