When Sapphire was little, her father told her a legend about a mermaid and a man. Neither could live apart from the other, and one night the man swam down to his Mer love and was never seen again. Oddly, the missing man had the same name as Sapphy’s dad. Sapphy has begun to think about that legend again, ever since her father inexplicably vanished one night in his boat. Now her brother Conor keeps disappearing down by the sea, and Sapphy feels the same inexorable pull, a pull that draws her into a world she never dreamed existed. Intoxicating but dangerous, Sapphy’s underwater playground is not always what it seems, its power forcing her to make a choice beyond imagination—because you can’t just go back and forth between the land and the sea.
A novel of immense power and humanity that captures both a young girl’s feelings of love and the darkness of a hazardous, adult world, Ingo is a tantalizing first book in this trilogy.
