In My Mailbox #84

In My Mailbox brought to you by The Story Siren
Set in an apocalyptic future where rising oceans have swallowed up entire regions and people live packed like sardines on the dry land left, DARK LIFE is the harrowing tale of underwater pioneers who have carved out a life for themselves in the harsh deep-sea environment, farming the seafloor in exchange for the land deed.

The story follows Ty, who has lived his whole life on his family's homestead and has dreams of claiming his own stake when he turns eighteen. But when outlaws' attacks on government supply ships and settlements threaten to destroy the underwater territory, Ty finds himself in a fight to stop the outlaws and save the only home he has ever known.

Joined by a girl from the Topside who has come subsea to look for her prospector brother, Ty ventures into the frontier's rough underworld and begins to discover some dark secrets to Dark Life.

As Ty gets closer to the truth, he discovers that the outlaws may not be the bloodthirsty criminals the government has portrayed them as. And that the government abandoning the territory might be the best thing for everyone, especially for someone like Ty, someone with a Dark Gift.

Since this is the second book, I will not post a summary. 

So that's what I got this week. What did you all get?


  1. Awesome list. I got:

    1) Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson

    2) Aesop's Fables

    3) Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austin

    4) 50 Ways to Hex Your Lover by Linda Wisdom

    *~` `~*

  2. I've really been wanting to read the Jenny Han books! Enjoy! :D


  3. I haven't heard of these - I'll look forward to seeing your reviews!

    Thanks for stopping by Between the Covers!

  4. I've never heard of Dark Life, but I'm going to look it up now. I'm surprised I've never heard of it considering all the dystopian hype recently. I'll have to check it out sometime.

    Happy reading!

  5. Great set! I have all of Nancy Pearl's books. I'm a huge fan.
    My IMM
    Get a free download of Wings by Aprilynne Pike at my blog!

  6. I loved It's Not Summer Without You! The last book in the series comes out in June (I think). I can't wait!

    The dystopian sounds interesting. Much more so than some. Could there be magic in this dystopian? Can't wait for your review.
