Ty has always known that the ocean is a dangerous place. Every time he swims beyond the borders of his family's subsea farm, he's prepared to face all manner of aquatic predators - sharks, squid, killer whales.
What Ty isn't prepared to find in the deep is an entire township chained to a sunken submarine, its inhabitants condemned to an icy underwater grave. It's only the first clue to a mystery that has claimed hundreds of lives and stands to claim two more - lives very precious to Ty and his Topsider ally, Gemma. Now, in a desperate race against the clock, Ty and Gemma find themselves in conflict with outlaws, Seaguard officers, and the savage, trident-wielding surfs - plus a menagerie of the most deadly creatures the ocean has to offer.
Kat Falls brings to life the mysteries, marvels, and monsters of the deep in this fast-paced and inventive action-adventure.

It was appealing to the entire family age 10-43!
We listened as a family on car trip. So yes.
"How much longer" got replaced by "Start the book back or don't stop". It was great! The adults enjoyed it as well as the kids!
Another great book by Kat Falls. Rip Tide started out running and never slowed down. I loved Dark Life and this sequel did not disappoint. Keith Nobbs is an excellent narrator. He actually sounds like the 15 year old main character. I like that he can read all the different characters without having to make weird voices. Some male narrators cannot do girl voices. Nobbs didn't try to do a girl's voice for Jemma, thank goodness. He just read the part and it sounded right. I suspect there will be a third book in the series. I'm looking forward to it.
