Dark Life (Dark Life Series #1)

Dark Life (Dark Life Series #1) - Kat Falls Dark Life by Kat Falls is a really fun read. It's also incredibly suspenseful. You know that old cliched saying, "It's a real page turner?" Well I'm going to be redundant and say that's exactly what reading this book is like. It's an incredibly fast read and before you know it you're halfway through the book and you don't want to put it down. And that's where I'm at now. At this point in my review, I haven't finished reading yet, but I'm going to try and read as much as I can before I go to bed. The plot moves along at a breakneck pace and it doesn't stop until you reach the end. I hope the next book is half as suspenseful as this one is.The two main characters, Gemma and Ty are wonderful and I really find myself rooting for them. Zoe is adorable and feisty. God I love Zoe. The villains are really scary. I find myself torn about the setting. On one hand, the fact that most of the book is under water and suspenseful makes it a sort of claustrophobic read and depending what kind of person you are, that can be either a good or a bad thing. I like to be scared, so it's a good thing for me. On the other hand, as beautiful and exciting as the underwater setting is, it's entirely implausible. So for me, it's difficult to suspend disbelief. I guess you'd have to read it and find out how you react to it.About the villain. It's been a while since I've encountered an extremely frightening villain that's also ridiculously likable. It's kind of awesome actually. Part of me wants the villain to win. That's kind of sick, isn't it? And there's a surprise twist at the end that's not really a surprise. I kind of saw it coming. If you're a thinker like me, you'll probably figure it out also. There's a particular person I didn't trust from the very beginning. Turned out to be a good assumption. Still it was a fun twist, if not entirely unpredictable. All in all a great read. Not perfect, but definitely willing to read the next book in the series. I'm interested to see where this goes.
