This is fast becoming one of my favorite series mythologies. Ingo is fresh and unique without losing its timeless mythical feel, and the stories so far are so unassuming and natural. There's no all-knowing power, no Chosen One, no ridiculousness, just a fantasy that ebbs like the water and worlds it's about. It's on the younger spectrum of YA, but that works, because I love the absence of romance or wild coincidences. Family is the central relationship here, and it works without being sappy.
