Wow, well I'm in a bit of a predicament now. I didn't like Ingo very much, did I? But guess what - I saw this book in a charity shop for 1.25 and took the plunge.
And now I have to hold up my hands and say damn am I glad I did.
It wasn't the best book in the world, I'll admit, but Sapphy really grew up in this. She was still stupid and whiny at times, but definitely less than in the first book and more independant, not relying too much on having Connor around or becoming jealous.
The reason I haven
I love this series. Unabashedly. It’s simple and lovely. I think it’s ideal for pre-teens, especially if their parents are going through a divorce or they are part of a blended family. To me Sapphy is such a real character, even when she annoyed me, her actions and reactions always rang true. I was as devastated as Sapphy and Conor when I found out the truth about their father.

The pull of Ingo was as enchanting and dangerous as it was in the first book. In Tide Knot the stakes are raised from th
The second book in the series - Sepphy and Conner try hard to forget their adventures in Ingo, but for Sepphy, whose Mer blood is so strong, it isn't easy. Living in town instead of by their cove, she spends more time moping around by the shore than normal. But when her father appears, trying to warn her of a terrible event, she has to return under the sea to rescue him. Instead, she finds out about the Tide Knot, a mystical entity that keeps the tides from covering too much land. When the knot ...more

I have no idea why I loved the first book (Ingo) a lot. Maybe because when I read the first book, I was way younger. Or maybe the first book is actually way better than this second one. I havent read the first book for years.

This could be a great book for children, but not for young adult at all. The story is way too dreamy, it's boring. And I don't know why...but Dunmore's writing doesn't make myself believe in her words. I mean, some parts are interesting, but most parts are boring :S And the
'The Tide Knot' continues on from 'Ingo', with Sapphire and Conor now living with their mum in St. Pirans. I found this book to be much more satisfying than the previous book, with more underwater adventures and a real sense that the Mer consist of more than just Faro and Elvira. That said, much of the book still takes place on land. I found Sapphire to be as annoying as in the first book, with far too much whinging. Faro, too, is still rather unlikeable and I find it hard to understand why Sapp ...more

This is the Sequal of the brilliant series, ingo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If you haven't read it READ IT OR GET IT NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The second installment of the Ingo series begins with Sapphire refusing to adapt to her new home. While Conor has given up on Ingo and embraced his Air side, Sapphire still goes to Ingo to visit with Faro. One thing leads to another (terribly detailed, I know) and Sapphire gets to see her dad, who everyone but her and Conor believed to have drowned more than a year before our story starts. Seeing her dad leads Sapphire and Conor to go to Ingo with the purpose of trying to bring him back. However ...more

Set on the rugged Cornish coast, Sapphire and her brother Conor's father went missing at sea some eighteen months previously (in book one-Ingo). Now they have moved into a new cottage in a different village with their mother and her new boyfriend.
Sapphire isn't happy, but her brother's making the best of it with new friends and goes out surfing most days.
The year before they had both had an unusual, mysterious adventure (after their father had disappeared) deep below the waves where they'd disco

I thought that this one was going to be amazing after just a few chapters, and it went really great until it started to become flawed with the whole seeing gift Connor had and the story-line not linking to their previous adventure.

I'll admit it was good, the writing style had improved and the whole call to the ocean is amazing. I liked the idea of her finding her dad and him speaking to her, but she never sees him again which is bizarre to me, and she doesn't really try to find him again. I'm su

Jika kematian Cal serta Ali terasa seolah merenggut jantungku keluar, diinjak-injak, kemudian dikembalikan dalam keadaan hancur lebam, maka The Tide Knot membuatku serasa ditusuk oleh bilah pedang tajam dan dingin tepat di jantungku yang setelah beberapa saat rasa sakitnya berubah tumpul hingga tak terasa. Tapi tetap saja kau tahu luka itu ada, kau tahu lubang itu ada di sana.

Tidak ada yang nyawanya terenggut dalam buku kedua Ingo ini, kecuali mungkin kucing malang yang terseret banjir itu. Tapi

Meeeh, that's how I feel about the sequel. Honestly, this book was just too boring for my taste and there wasn't much new.
Saphire is still stupid and whiny, though to be fair at points she does grow up a bit, yet, the situation is still the same. She sneaks out to go to Ingo, hides it from her mother, whines about how torn she is and at times Conor appears though he isn't much of a force in this story either.
I waited for some huge inpact, something to truly change the story and even though at t

Whoa... 2nd in the series--great turn on where the missing dad ended up.

Dunmore managed to keep the thrill of the unknown in this book. The world of mer is colorfully depicted with her creative mind.

I loved it!
Alissa Bach
I liked this one better than the first book in the series (Ingo)...although I still don't know what Sapphy sees in Faro (his character seems stuck up and one dimentional to me). A fun adventure story :)
Amy Louise
Really enjoy this :) Couldn't put it down! Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
The Tide Knot is the sequel to the wonderful book Ingo. Both books are full to the brim of magic, adventure, friendship, mermaids, the power of the sea and lots more. I loved reading both of these books and recommend them to kids of all ages. Nobody is too old for magic!! I would recommend you read Ingo first, if you haven’t already, as things will make a lot more sense when reading The Tide Knot.

Sapphire’s first encounter of Ingo was nearly a year ago. Now she, Conner and their mum have moved
Janine Ekstrand
This is a brilliant sequel that gave this a series a good and exiting turn of event.

I was wondering about Sapphire's mixed blood and what that could do, and other stuff like that.

I think that this is a good book even if it is a childs' book, (view spoiler)
I've given this a three but honestly, I can't remember what rating I would have given. I'm sure I already wrote a review for this book and a few others that have come up unrated.
I enjoyed the rest of this series though, though the lead character was often annoying, so hopefully my score for this one is adequet and fair.


Ok, I have reviewed it but for some reason it isn't showing up so I'll paste what I wrote here:

The pull (and story) of Ingo is growing stonger...literally. The characters Sapphire & Conor are growing up and becoming more independant, spending more time away from home and less in Ingo, but the sea cannot be ignored that easily, especially for Sapphire. They have moved further inland, due to thier mother's paranoia and urge to start over with Roger, her new love-intrest since the kid's dad disappeared. Sapphire is given new responsibilities with her dog Sadie who follows her everywhere ...more
Magical. It's really the best word to describe these series. Not in a Dungeons and Dragons fantasy novel kind of way, but in the magic of childhood. The same sort of magic that transported the kids through an old wardrobe into Narnia. This book doesn't have much in the way of magic, persay. But the world Dunmore creates IS magical. Consistent. Beautiful. Enticing. Menacing. So many feelings all at once. It is easy to love Faro...and yet just as easy to doubt him, to be suspicious of him. I like ...more
Buku kedua dari serial Ingo.

Oke, setelah membaca dengan lambat di buku 1, buku ke 2 diawali dengan semangat.

Tahukah kamu mengapa ombak selalu mundur setelah menghantam pantai? Mundur, bukan terus maju hingga melesak ke daratan?

Okay, memang ada tsunami, kejadian ombak yang menghantam daratan dan terus masuk jauh ke darat. Tapi itu kan bukan kejadian alami.

Well, itulah inti cerita ini.

Dah ah, takut spoiler berat kalau diteruskan.

Alur cerita lebih cepat dari buku 1.

The second book in the Ingo series is, in my opinion, is better than the first book. The Tide Knot was not a continue of the first book Ingo, but still manages to entertain all who read it, at lest the people that cane extend there minds a little further than normal. I believe that the third book will continue to impress. I hope the rest of the series will live up to the expectations the first and second books have set.

Well, aku emang ngga pernah bikin review. Menurutku ngga asik and seru!
Tapi aku pengen kalian membayangkan dulu sebelum mulai baca seri Ingo ini.

The story in the second book was pretty good, and a tiny bit fast paced at the end, but not as much as other books that I've previously read. The danger is kind of there, but I don't think it's as dangerous and dark as the reviews claim. Sapphy is still a bit wingy, but she has changed a bit since the first book.

This is probably because it's supposed to be part of five books, but I don't feel like the story has progressed as much. Yeh there are some changes, but it left me lacking some satisfact

this book left me hanging and has given me a reason to continue reading this series. although it dose take a while to get into the book it is worth the long wait. I think that Helen Dunmore gave away the plot to early and did not put it into action soon enough this left me waiting for what I knew was coming.

I was born in December 1952, in Yorkshire, the second of four children. My father was the eldest of twelve, and this extended family has no doubt had a strong influence on my life, as have my own children. In a large family you hear a great many stories. You also come to understand very early that stories hold quite different meanings for different listeners, and can be recast from many viewpoints ...more
