Review

“Shows shimmering layers of charm, emotional intelligence and mystery.” – Amanda Craig, The Times

Product Description

An atmospheric and beautifully written adventure, from the award-winning author of the Ingo series.

Morveren lives with her parents and twin sister Jenna on an island off the coast of Cornwall.

As Morveren and Jenna’s relationship shifts and changes, like driftwood on the tide, Morveren finds a beautiful teenage boy in a rock pool after a storm. Going to his rescue, she is shocked to see that he is not human but a Mer boy.

With Jenna refusing to face the truth, Morveren finds herself alone at the worst possible time. Because when the worlds of Air and Mer meet, the consequences can be terrible…

4.0 out of 5 stars lyrical masterpiece! 11 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover
If you've never read any middle grade, you are missing out! This story is so pure. Stormswept is so well written. It is almost lyrical, like music.

I've not read a Mer story in awhile, and the summary intrigued me. I'm so glad I picked it up. I loved it! Morveren lives by the sea and finds a Mer Boy who has been beached. With her twin sister, she gets him to safety in a pool of water close by. But, not back in the sea. While Malin is trying to recover, Morveren is trying to find out how to make him better and get him back to the sea and to his people. She goes on an adventure. She finds out about the Mer people and more about herself.

This is a beautifully crafted story. I can almost feel the sea calling to me now. I know it sounds weird, but it truly feels like you become part of the ocean when you're reading. I can not wait for more Ingo Chronicles!

I've done some research, and Stormswept is the 2nd wave in the Ingo Chronicles series. The earlier books are; Ingo (2005), The Tide Knot (2006), The Deep (2007), The Crossing of Ingo (2008). I can not wait to read them!

This entire series has captured the imagination of my 9 year old daughter. She will stay up late in order to read another chapter and finds it absolutely unputdownable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Considerably better than the previous entry 3 Aug 2014
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Helen Dunmore averaged one Ingo novel a year until the fourth book (which I did not like). I figured she was either out of ideas or series had reached it's intended conclusion. Four years later she gave us Stormswept, which I picked up with little enthusiasm. I'm happy to say it's a huge improvement.

Instead of telling us another story about Sapphire and Conor Stormswept is more of a side-quel and introduces new characters in the form of argumentative telepathic twins Morveren and Jenna, stuck together, torn apart, and as different as they are similar. After a heavy storm pounds their island home the twins find a beached mer-man in the form of Malin, who has been injured and cannot get back to the sea/Ingo. They dump him in a secluded rock pool and help him get better, but Morveren, like Sapphire before her, can feel the pull of Ingo and is able to breathe underwater, though her sister cannot.

Not especially much happens in Stormswept but the naturalized narration helped me get into the story more while The Crossing of Ingo was full of fantasy-babble which alienated me. I am still hooked on the series and if Helen Dunmore is still cranking them out then I am still buying.

4.0 out of 5 stars A welcome return to Ingo 28 Jan 2012
By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
One of the reasons why I was so eager to read Helen Dunmore's original Ingo series was the publication this January of the first in the new Ingo Chronicles, Stormswept. The cover alone was enough to make me know I had to read it. It is indeed a beautiful book on the outside, so what about its innards?

In Stormswept we are introduced to two new young siblings who are on the cusp of growing into themselves. Twin sisters Morveren and Jenna, almost 14 years old, live on an island that is joined to the Cornish mainland by a causeway that only emerges at lowtide. One day a great storm strikes the coast, bringing the islanders together to search for shipwrecked sailors. Morveren, however, discovers more than she bargains for when she comes across Malin, a boy, a little older than herself, who has been stranded on the rocks and is injured. It's his tail that's injured - Malin is a son of the Mer.

Morveren finds herself drawn to Malin and Ingo while her little brother Digory hears music coming from the waves. Jenna, though, is very much of Air and she resists, forming her own difficult relationship with the troubled Bran. It isn't long before these worlds and interests collide and Malin is in danger.

The beginning of Stormswept is completely enchanting. The descriptions of the two girls racing across the causeway as the tides rise and the telling of the legend of the island's formation which the islanders mark with their music... beautiful, magical prose draws you in to this world where sea and land meet.

The original Ingo series is a hard act to follow.

It's nice but I miss Saphire and Conor from the other Ingo books as this book has new characters exploring the world of the Mer. I liked the twins and it was an exciting story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book - I couldn't put it down!! 6 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchase this book for myself for Christmas - I have read the first set of Ingo books, and was very disappointed to get to the end, so imagine my delight when I found a further Ingo chronicle!! This book is absolutely riveting - I read it at Christmas, and it took me 2 days - it would have been faster, but I had to be sociable!!! Teenagers are the intended audience - I am an adult, and I don't see why the youths should keep all the best books for themselves!!! Superb book, lovely world - I recommend this to anyone who loves a bit of escapism. The world created by Helen Dunmore is totally believable, and you feel like you've been there yourself!! I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS SERIES!!!!
