Rip Tide by Kat FallsRip Tide by Kat Falls
Goodreads – YA – August 2nd 2011 by Simon and Schuster Childrens Books (UK)

Return to the subsea frontier with Ty and Gemma, where the mysteries of the deep are deadlier than ever. With time running out for his parents, Ty’s desperation leads the two teenagers to the underwater underworld…and into an alliance with the outlaws of the Seablite Gang. But one mystery soon leads to another. How has an entire township disappeared? Why is the local sea-life suddenly so aggressive? And can the Seablite Gang be trusted…or are Ty and Gemma in deeper water than they realise?


I recently spotted the cover for Rip Tide, the sequel to the amazing Dark Life, over on goodreads and squeed with excitement. I really, really enjoyed Dark Life and felt like nowhere near enough people read it.  And you should – it’s got underwater pirates, socially oppressive governments, and that ever-elusive male narrator.  I cannot wait to read Rip Tide – my only lament is that it comes out in August.  August?  That’s forever-and-a-half away!  *sighs dramatically*
