The ocean rose, swallowing up the lowlands. Earthquakes shattered the continents, toppling entire regions into the rising water. Now, humans live packed into stack cities. The only ones with any space of their own are those who live on the ocean floor, the Dark Life. Ty has spent his whole life living deep undersea, helping his family farm the ocean floor.

I listened to Dark Life with my kids--21, 18, 15 on a car trip. We were captivated! Ms. Falls creates a believable undersea world in a future where global warming has greatly reduced the livable land on Earth. Her characters are bright, witty and adventurous and we thoroughly enjoyed our peek into their lives. Look for the sequel, Riptide, also a great read! Narrator Keith Nobbs voice the parts perfectly. Dark Life has been optioned for a movie, and author Kat Falls plans five books total in this engaging series. Highly recommended!

I purchased this for my daughter, but ended up hearing it several times in pieces :) I can't say enough about Laura Linney's narration--she is wonderful!

Nothing in Cree's experience as a Harvard-trained clinical psychologist or as a paranormal investigator has prepared her for Tommy Keeday's case. A talented young Navajo, Tommy has recently been exhibiting bizarre symptoms that his family believes are signs of possession by a chindi, a hostile spirit. As Cree struggles to find answers, she becomes increasingly aware that Tommy and the people who surround him have some deep and disturbing secrets.

Hecht's second Cree Black thriller is as good as the first. Great paranormal series!

Daniel Hecht has created a plausible, heart-stopping ghost thriller. Relying on the science of parapsychology to spine-tingling effect, he brings to life a remarkably compelling character in Cree Black, as well as the ghosts she confronts.

Cree Black is haunted by her past and a paranormal experience which has lead her into her current job as a "paranormal investigator." Hecht's characters are well formed,and brought to life perfectly by narrator Anna Fields (who sadly died shortly after voicing Hecht's third Cree Black thriller.) I could not wait to join Cree in her further investigations. I highly recommend the series!

On an entirely normal, beautiful fall day in Chester's Mill, Maine, the town is inexplicably and suddenly sealed off from the rest of the world by an invisible force field. Planes crash into it and fall from the sky in flaming wreckage, a gardener's hand is severed as "the dome" comes down on it, people running errands in the neighboring town are divided from their families, and cars explode on impact. No one can fathom what this barrier is, where it came from, and when - or if - it will go away.

I purchased this after reading the publisher's blurb, hoping my older kids(17, 20)might enjoy it also. After listening, I do not plan to recommend the book to them. There is a particularly ugly rape scene at the beginning, and the "bad guy" characters are just nasty. Foul language is used throughout the book. Maybe the author was going for length--cutting out just the F word in all its variations would practically cut the novel in half. Plotwise,I was reminded a little of a modern day Lord of the Flies, with profanity. (Lots of it.) The human race (with a very few exceptions) and particularly Christians, do not fare well in this book. The ending seems contrived and flat.
