Ingo The Best Yet,
A Kid's Review
This review is from: The Crossing of Ingo (Ingo Adventures) (Hardcover)
My mum bought me the first book, i saw the front cover and read the blurb 'mermaids' i thought, i wasn't so sure. I gave it a go anyway and i couldn't put it down, It was brilliant! The writer Helen Dunmore is an amazing author, She makes it feel so real and adds lots of brilliant adjectives. It wasn't anything like I'd have thought, not mermaidy at all, just so exciting and at times heartbreaking. It sent you on a roller coaster of emotions! The charatcers are very well explained and described in a subtle way, It's like you gain the characters' trust and affection. Once I ahd read 'Ingo' I found out there were two more, one called 'The Tide Know' which was so exciting and then 'The Deep'. I was on the edge of my chair the WHOLE way through. The whole trilogy is based on a sea loving family whose father/husband is enticed into Ingo a place were the Mer live, were he build a new famiy. Slowly Sapphy and Conor find out about their Mer blood. Unfortunately in this trilogy we don't find out what happens to the father/husband. But fortuantley there is a 4th book (no longer a trilogy). 'The Crossing Of Ingo' is the last stretch for Sapphy and Conor on thier journey to becoming full Mer. What will happen to dad?!?
