Product description

Stunning reissue in a beautiful new cover-look of this second novel in the critically acclaimed Ingo Chronicles "I can't go back in the house. I'm restless, prickling all over. The wind hits me like slaps from huge invisible hands. But it's not the wind that worries me. It's something else, beyond the storm..." Sapphire and Conor can't forget their adventures in Ingo, the mysterious world beneath the sea. They long to see their Mer friends Faro and Elvira, and swim with the dolphins once more. But a crisis is brewing far below the ocean's surface, where the wisest of the Mer guards the Tide Knot. And soon both Sapphire and Conor will be drawn into Ingo's troubled waters...

Review quote

Praise for The Tide Knot: "Intensely compelling... gorgeous." Amanda Craig, The Times "Dunmore's graceful style is what makes the unbelievable believable..." The Independent on Sunday "Like the ocean itself, this book is deep and strange and marvellous." Nial MacMonagle, The Irish Times "This is a wonderful fantasy story..." Jan Winter, Inis Praise for Ingo: "Ingo has a haunting, dangerous beauty all of its own." Philip Ardagh, Guardian "The electric thrill of swimming with dolphins, of racing along currents, and of leaving the world of reason and caution behind are described with glorious intensity." Amanda Craig, The Times "Compellingly lyrical." Independent "Helen Dunmore may have a few drowned readers on her conscience, so enticing and believable is the underwater world she creates in Ingo." Telegraph "Helen Dunmore is an exceptional and versatile writer and she writes with a restrained, sensual grace." Observer "A remarkable fantasy... It's a haunting, beautifully written book which creates a totally believable parallel world." Northern Echo "Ingo is an intoxicating adventure... Wonderful, evocative storytelling." Publishing News
