The final part of the Ingo quartet. Full of power, passion and politics, The Crossing of Ingo is a thrilling conclusion to the richly imagined and lyrical Ingo quartet. The Crossing of Ingo is the biggest challenge all the young Mers living under the sea have to make. When Sapphire and her brother Conor, Air dwellers with special links to the Mer people, hear the call they know that they too must take up this epic challenge in order to protect the future of both the Air and Ingo people. But power hungry Ervys is snapping at his chance of leadership. Teaming up with the sharks, he is determined to stop Sapphire and Conor. Can they?

The Crossing of Ingo by Helen Dunmore
The breathtaking conclusion to the critically-acclaimed Ingo series, by prize-winning novelist Helen Dunmore. Sapphire, Conor and their Mer friends Faro and Elvira are ready to make the Crossing of Ingo -- a long and dangerous journey that only the strongest young Mer are called upon to make. No human being has ever attempted this thrilling voyage to the bottom of the world.
Ervys, his followers and new recruits, the sharks, are determined that Sapphire and Conor must be stopped -- dead or alive!
