A little buzz on a Tuesday


I'll be posting a full review soon, but last night I devoured Dark Life by Kat Falls and I am here to tell you that it is awesome!

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. 


This one's going to be big, folks. The action is non-stop and it's set in a really well-developed future world. I wouldn't hesitate to hand it to fans of City of Ember and The Hunger Games. (Yes, I just compared it to The Hunger Games. That shows you how much I loved it.) 


It's due out in May. 
And it's a debut, all you 2010 Debut Challengers!
You can officially put this one on your radar. More thoughts to come soon.

Oooooo, sounds like fun! Like I mentioned on twitter, I'm particularly caught by the frontier aspect of it--the wild and dangerous new place that they have to eke out a living from. (Also one of the reasons I liked Firefly, but Nathan Fillion was another.)
