Sign Up Post: Incarceron

Incarceron (Incarceron, Book 1)Incarceron (Incarceron, Book 1) by Catherine Fisher

Incarceron -- a futuristic prison, sealed from view, where the descendants of the original prisoners live in a dark world torn by rivalry and savagery. It is a terrifying mix of high technology -- a living building which pervades the novel as an ever-watchful, ever-vengeful character, and a typical medieval torture chamber -- chains, great halls, dungeons. A young prisoner, Finn, has haunting visions of an earlier life, and cannot believe he was born here and has always been here. In the outer world, Claudia, daughter of the Warden of Incarceron, is trapped in her own form of prison -- a futuristic world constructed beautifully to look like a past era, an imminent marriage she dreads. She knows nothing of Incarceron, except that it exists. But there comes a moment when Finn, inside Incarceron, and Claudia, outside, simultaneously find a device -- a crystal key, through which they can talk to each other. And so the plan for Finn's escape is born ...

Eke! I wanna do this book, but it's not on Kindle. Or if it is, I dont see it on Amazon? I'll go to the book store to look for it, because if I try to wait for shipping I may miss the deadline!

I read this one back in March and absolutely loved it! I can't wait to read the sequel Sapphique! I think my favorite character was Jared.

I loved Incarceron and look forward to reading Sapphique! My favorite character was Jared. I loved his cleverness and his quiet but unwavering devotion to Claudia. He provides the perfect balance to her bold and reckless personality.

I just finished Incarceron last night and *loved* it!

My favorite character was Attia -- She was so creative and smart to have survived as long as she did with the Comitatus and her loyalty to Finn was unwavering.
