About Author

  1. 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.Poetry was very important to me from childhood I began by listening to and learning by heart all kinds of rhymes and hymns and ballads, and then went on to make up my own poems, using the forms I d heard Writing these down came a little later.I studied English at the University of York, and after graduation taught English as a foreign language in Finland.At around this time I began to write the poems which formed my first poetry collection, The Apple Fall, and to publish these in magazines I also completed two novels fortunately neither survives, and it was than ten years before I wrote another novel.During this time I published several collections of poems, and wrote some of the short stories which were later collected in Love of Fat Men I began to travel a great deal within the UK and around the world, for poetry tours and writing residences This experience of working in many different countries and cultures has been very important to my work I reviewed poetry for Stand and Poetry Review and later for The Observer, and subsequently reviewed fiction for The Observer, The Times and The Guardian My critical work includes introductions to the poems of Emily Bront , the short stories of D H Lawrence and F Scott Fitzgerald, a study of Virginia Woolf s relationships with women and Introductions to the Folio Society s edition of Anna Karenina and to the new Penguin Classics edition of Tolstoy s My Confession During the 1980s and early 1990s I taught poetry and creative writing, tutored residential writing courses for the Arvon Foundation and took part in the Poetry Society s Writer in Schools scheme, as well as giving readings and workshops in schools, hospitals, prisons and every other kind of place where a poem could conceivably be welcome I also taught at the University of Glamorgan, the University of Bristol s Continuing Education Department and for the Open College of the Arts.In the late 1980s I began to publish short stories, and these were the beginning of a breakthrough into fiction What I had learned of prose technique through the short story gave me the impetus to start writing novels My first novel for children was Going to Egypt, published in 1992, and my first novel for adults was Zennor in Darkness, published in 1993, which won the McKitterick Prize This was also my first researched novel, set in the First World War and dealing with the period when D H Lawrence and his wife Frieda lived in Zennor in Cornwall, and came under suspicion as German spies.My third novel, A Spell of Winter, won the inaugural Orange Prize for Fiction in 1996, and since then I have published a number of novels, short story collections and books for children Full details of all these books are available on this website The last of The Ingo Quartet, The Crossing of Ingo, was published in paperback in Spring 2009.My seventh novel, The Siege 2001 was shortlisted both for the Whitbread Novel Award and the Orange Prize for Fiction This was another researched novel, which grew from a lifelong love of Russian history, culture and literature It is is set in Leningrad during the first year of the siege of the city by German forces, which lasted for 880 days from the fall of Mga on 30th August 1941 The Siege has been translated into Russian by Tatyana Averchina, and extracts have been broadcast on radio in St Petersburg House of Orphans was published in 2006, and in 2008 Counting the Stars Its central characters are the Roman poet Catullus, who lived during the last years of the Republic,

One thought on “The Deep

  1. Source I own an ebook copy of this book Cost Free Title The Deep Series Ingo 3 Author Helen Dun Overall Rating 3 starsThe Kraken is awake, and no, not the one from Davy Jone s Locker This Kraken will only return to sleep if it has a sacrifice of a boy and a girlOr if someone goes into the deep to stop it And since Sapphy is the only known person to survive the deep, of course she is opted to go With the help of Conor and Faro, they descend into the depths to fight this ancient beast and Sapphy l [...]

  2. This is the third book in the Ingo series However, it is enough of a complete story that it can be read easily as a stand alone book Dun does an excellent job balancing the concept of a young girl struggling to live in two worlds Sapphire, the protagonist, has blood that is mixed with both human Earth and Air and Mer Sea Her brother is mixed as well, but the Earth is strong in him and he is not pulled as strongly to the ocean as Sapphire The main plot is rooted in the previous books but explaine [...]

  3. This book is the third book in the Ingo series by Helen Dun It focuses on a young girl along with her brother Sapphire Connor who are part Mer and part Human Their father, a Mer, has returned to the underwater world of Ingo and is remarried with a new son The I read this, the I wanted to read the first two books which I haven t to find out exactly how they learned they were part mer and how the father chose to return to Ingo and leave his family behind The book is titled The Deep and the jacke [...]

  4. What the Helen, that was the absolute, flat out, most suckish ending to a novel, EVER Much less a TRILOGY I wait and wait and wait for this book, LOVING the previous two books, start reading this and being SO excited, loving it, the plot gets as interesting as it could get, and my curiosity as to WHAT WILL HAPPEN reaches its peak, and the book stops.I don t mean it ends STOPS This was a load of crap, and I am thoroughly pissed.

  5. Over all the book is fairly entertaining but the beginning is a little slow If you like fantasy type series then this could be the series for you However if you don t like slow starts this book might not be for you Even in the third book they still introduce all the characters even though they have been in all the other books if this is your first read of the series you still get to meet all the characters One bad thing about this book is that you can predict the ending from the start of the boo [...]

  6. After the near miss of the last book, with the Tide Knot breaking, now there is another threat to both worlds of Ingo and of Air This time, the Kraken is awake can t help remembering the Pirates of the Caribbean s Kraken and Davy Jones The Mer then have two choices sacrifice a couple of children or sending someone to the Deep to put the Kraken to sleep again Because Sapphy can survive the Deep, she gets asked to go there and save the world again.This was a bit of a slow book, and it ended being [...]

  7. If I hadn t read the others I rate it five stars but to me it was a let down after Ingo and the Tide Knot.

  8. I was so disappointed After reading Ingo and The Tide Knot which seemed like filler to me , I was hoping for .

  9. I can t wait to read the next one in the series If Sapphire ever starts doing guided tours of Ingo I m totally going to be one of the first in line

  10. Well, tetralogi Ingo tentu masih berkisar antara kaum Mer manusia duyung dimana dua diantara mereka bersahabat dengan anak Udara yaitu Conor dan Sapphire Fokus kali ini memang bukan sepenuhnya tentang kaum Mer Porsi lebih besar diberikan kepada Sapphire dan Connor serta si Paus Dalam The Deep ini bertualang ke dasar laut yang gelap dan sunyi Tidak ada satupun kaum Mer yang dapat masuk kesana tanpa menjadi hilang selamanya Melalui buku ini pembaca bisa dapat merasakan keadaan dasar laut yang jauh [...]

  12. Not as strong as the previous Ingo books, but still psychologically enchanting and very creative From riding inside the mouth of a whale to the true nature of the Kraken, Helen Dun really puts you into the emotional state of the characters, amplifying their fears, triumphs, and every little thing in between This one ran a little slower and the scene with the Kraken is somewhat anticlimatic if not read slowly and carefully, but overall I enjoyed The Deep and am looking forward to the next book

  13. There human world is slowly getting back to normal after the mighty floods Things are changing they are getting older braver and taking on responsibility for the secrets they keep from their Mum and Roger Ingo becomes than an escape it s starting to feel like home So, When Faro calls for help, Connor Sapphire don t hesitate to dive back into Ingo to help fight the darkest menacing sea creature of them all The Kraken.

  14. I liked this book Some of the details didn t quite make sense because I haven t read the first two books, but it was good I wasn t entirely satisfied with the last fourth of the book Everything wraps up underwater and somewhat on land, but there is an element missing in the last part of the book I like it and will probably read this book again and most definitely read the first two, but The Deep is not going to be one of my most favorite books.

  15. It was a good read the whole thing with Kraken was a little weird and the fact that Connor and Faro both managed to stay alive in the Deep when, previous, Faro hadn t been able to go into the Deep to save Sapphire I mean, the whale probably had something to do with that.

  17. As an 11 year old still thoroughly read worryingly enchanted by mermaids I fell quite desperately in love with Ingo The affair itself lasted only a few hours as I devoured the novel but the romance of Sapphy s world lingered on I wanted a few stolen hours in the magical seaside paradise So, imagine my delight when I find we are to be treated to a TRILOGY THREE WHOLE BOOKS I counted the days to their arrival My longing for Dun s world would be sated Then I was blessed with The Tide Knot and alt [...]

  18. I like this book than it s prequels First of all because the conflict started very early on the book, unlike Ingo Ingo 1 and Tide Knot Ingo 2 where the conflict only occupies like 1 3 final part of the book That being said, the conflict that has been build up perfectly are not concluded the way I imagined it to be It felt very lacking on every way I mean Sapphy was supposed to go into the deep and fight against this monster that threaten both her world and Ingo, I would expect something really [...]

  19. This series no longer really holds my attention the way the first book did when I was younger, but the books are good enough that I m going to continue through until the end.I really think the Tide Knot and The Deep probably could have been condensed into one book The Deep didn t need to be 329 pages Not enough happened for it to need to be 329 pages Still it was good It was nice I have to keep in mind it s a children s book and for that, I think it s really good.Sapphire is just young, I guess [...]

  22. I love the Ingo series, but this book I didn t love as much as the first two I can t even put my finger on why I just didn t enjoy it as much, and found I had of a struggle to finish the book I wanted to finish it I just never seemed to want to pick the book up to do so Maybe it had to do with Ervys He is a pretty awful character a bit like Lucius Malfoy Arrogant and power hungry, with his sycophantic supporters ugh The Kraken was pretty unappealing too, and perhaps felt a little silly anti cli [...]

  23. This third book in the Ingo series seems to be wearing the story a bit thin The whole Kraken plot has been done with the Emily Windsnap series and with the monster being a shape shifting being who feeds on negative emotions, it makes the characters seem disrespected and slightly degraded How is the heroine supposed to stay strong if so many depressing life altering situations have been thrown at her since the 1st book The sub plot with her missing father who left the family to supposedly persue [...]

  26. After the wonderfully written Ingo and Tide Knot I was surprised to find that The Deep ended up being so clunky and slow Not really much happens in the 320 pages and there s no sense of urgency, mystery or need to keep turning the page Sapphire and her brother Conor are summoned back to the ocean when the Kraken not the giant squid of common lore threatens to wreak havoc upon the world when he wakes from his thousand year slumber The kids sort him out rather easily towards the end of the second [...]
