The captivating series that has held young readers spellbound draws to a close. In Ingo and its sequels, The Tide Knot and The Deep, Orange Prize--winner Helen Dunmore created the magical undersea world of Mer, where Sapphy and Conor Trewhella--two half-Mer, half-human children--struggle to find their place. In The Crossing of Ingo, Dunmore presents Sapphy and Conor with their most challenging test yet. The Kraken has been defeated, but unrest now divides Ingo. If Sapphy and Conor can complete the Crossing of Ingo, an ancient coming-of-age ritual, their triumph will reunite the Mer. For Sapphy, the challenge will be even more difficult, as she must decide to stay on land or give herself entirely to the sea world of Ingo.
    Once again, Helen Dunmore weaves a darkly beautiful tale about opening your eyes to the wider world and the importance of standing by your friends. The Crossing of Ingo is a fitting finale to a classic, much-loved series.

Poor Elvira. : ( I hope she'll be okay. A great book to end the series, with Sapphire accepting both her Mer and Air heritage near the end. However, I think this book also left lots of untied plots; for example, now we're left with wondering what will happen to Elvira, and Sapphire's Atka. Maybe Dunmore is planning on making another? I hope so.

Best book of the series. Still couldn't really get into it till the middle. I wish I had found out what happened with Conor (Rainbow), and Saphire (Faro).
