Ingo by Helen Dunmore ~ Review by Fallon


3 Out of 5 Stars

Author Description:

I wish I was away in IngoFar across the briny sea, Sailing over deepest watersWhere love nor care never trouble me. . . .

By the Cornwall coast where Sapphire lives with her family, it's easy to hear the call of the sea. Too easy.

When the sea called to Sapphy's father, he vanished from her life. When the sea called to her brother, he started disappearing for hours on end. And now the sea is calling to Sapphy, and she feels its pull more strongly than she's ever felt anything in her life.

In a novel full of longing, mystery, and magic, Helen Dunmore takes us to a new world that has the power both to captivate and to destroy. At the waterline, the two worlds of Air and Ingo meet. Sapphy and her brother, Conor, find themselves at the boundary between these worlds, in a place of danger and amazing discoveries.

Fallon's Review:

Sapphire lost her father. He disappeared one night after going out in the dark down to the sea. Sapphire and her father were a lot alike and had a very special bond. Sapphire and her brother are convinced there father is alive. Conor her brother is disappearing for hours. Sapphire sees Conor talking to a girl in the ocean who then disappears. She soon discovers maybe some stories you are told are not just fairy tales.

I thought this was a very good story. I know there are many more books in the series and I will pick them up to read. This story was a little lacking. There was no romance which if that was the only thing then ok. Then the whole beginning is about their father disappearing but you never find out what happens to their father. The book said 10 and up but I thought it was much more juvenile then that. This was a very easy read. 

I do look forward to continuing this fantasy world and seeing if this is just a story that had character building and the next books get into the heart of this story. I am giving this book 3 out of 5 Stars. I will be reading more books in this series.
