After the oceans rose and earthquakes occurred causing whole regions to fall into the deep,humans lived packed into stacked cities hardly going outside because sunlight could cause 3rd degree burns. As a result, some people were living on the ocean floors. Ty (the main character) was born and raised in the deep and was angry to hear he might die because pirates and outlaws were stealing their supplies. Can the outlaws be stopped?
I wouldn’t recommend Dark Life to kids under 14 due to difficulty of the language. I would recommend this book for the age range of 15-18. In order to enjoy this book you must like science-fiction and be able to comprehend it. You can pick this book up at your local library.
