YOUNG ADULT REVIEW: Dark Life - Kat Falls


Ty has lived under the ocean for his entire life. Following global warming and the rise of the seas, his family joined an underwater community in hopes of living in the new frontier of the ocean floor. But When Ty meets Gemma, a girl from "topside", who is searching the seas for her brother, she quickly makes his life very complicated. Together Ty and Gemma face dangerous sea creatures and venture into the frontier town's rough underworld as they search for her missing brother. But the deeper they dig, the more attention they attract, and soon Ty and Gemma find themselves being hunted by a gang of outlaws who roam the underwater territories causing havoc, and who seem to have eerie abilities. But Ty has a secret of his own, living underwater for his entire life has meant he has also developed a "special" power. Can he keep it a secret from Gemma and his family or is it time for him to finally tell everyone the truth?


With so many authors out there releasing titles it is always hard to find something that is not only new but interesting that no one’s ever really tackled before. Yet here in this, her first release Kat Falls not only brings the reader into a new world but does it so much better than a number of other authors out there. Whilst some of the themes are similar to Sophie McKenzie, the characters are more real, they have touches that really make them stand out and have a believability that leaves you wanting to meet and greet them as they appear within the pages. Its captivating, the story arc is amazing and it’s a title that leaves the author free to include follow up’s that really has put Kat on my radar. Get this title before others start the hype. You will not regret it.
