Dark Life is set in the near future when global warming has caused the oceans to rise and reduced America to half its former size. 16-year-old Ty and his family live on an ocean floor homestead. When outlaws attack the pioneer settlement, Ty teams up with a girl from the "Topside" who's come sub-sea to search for her brother. Together they face dangerous sea creatures and venture into the frontier town's rough underworld to discover the secret behind the outlaws' eerie abilities called Dark Gifts.

From Dark Life:
I peered into the deep sea canyon, hoping to spot a toppled skyscraper. Maybe even the statue of Liberty. But there was no sign of the old east coast, just a sheer drop into darkness.
A ball of light shot past me- a vampire squid, trailing neon blue. The glowing ink swirled around my helmet. Careful not to break it up, I drifted onto my knees, mesmerized But my trance was cut short by a series of green sparks bursting out of the gorge. I fell back, every muscle in my body tense. Only one fish glittered like an emerald and travelled in a pack: the green lantern shark. Twelve inches long and deadly as piranhas, they could rip apart something twenty times their size. Forget what they could do to a human.
