IngoBook - 2006
(Requires Flash Player. May take a few minutes to load.)
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.

Sapphire Trewhella's father suddenly goes missing one day during sailing off the coast of their home in Cornwall. After finding his boat, everyone proclaims him dead, but Sapphire and her older brother Conor are certain he's alive. A year later, Conor begins to disappear occasionally as well, and while searching for him one day along the beach, Sapphire meets a Mer boy named Faro, who draws her into the world of "Ingo", the alluring world under salty water. However, the Mer do not exactly hold humans in high regard, and Ingo turns dangerous when Sapphire's mother's new boyfriend, Roger, sets out to explore a place sacred to the Mer.
