It felt weird, returning to INGO , and Sapphire and Conor’s characters, because the last time I read the series (I initially thought there were only four books in the series, but recently discovered that there’s a fifth book called Stormswept that was released in 2012) I was 16 or 17- maybe even 15! And the first time I read the series, I believe I was 12 or 13, maybe younger
The funny thing is, I still love it – granted I may only love re-reading INGO, and not the others, but it pleases me to know I still love books like this, 7 years or so after I first read the series, and I do hope I love re-reading the other three books, and reading Stormswept for the first time.
This is sort of a special review for me, as I was sad to discover, that Helen passed away earlier this month from an illness. I feel like these re-read reviews (and first time review) are going to be a sort of tribute to hear: showing that her words are still entrancing me, even as I’m about to turn 20.
Stay true to yourself. Don’t ever let anyone deter you from the path you want to take.
